Lubbock Police have made two arrests in last month's kidnapping of Robert Justin Hightower.
Hightower disappeared for several days following a fight at a central Lubbock home. A few days later police found his brother's SUV in an alley in the 3500 of 45th Street. It had been set on fire. On January 26th Hightower contacted family and said he was safe.
Police have since linked 35-year-old Rachel Hardwicke and 20-year-old Cody Murfee to the case. Both are charged with aggravated kidnapping and possession of drugs. Murfee also faces a gun related charge. Authorities say both are involved in the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas, a white supremacist group.
