LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - There's new evidence in the case against the three people charged with kidnapping a gas station clerk and stuffing him in a trunk.

Joseph Davis, Brittany Elder and Trent Blye all have different versions of what happened August 4, 2012 when they were pulled over on Taylorsville Road.

Louisville Metro Police Officer Fred Wilson said he flagged the car for an expired plate. However, when a second officer showed up to help with the traffic stop, he heard Sean Bloemer, 22, in the trunk. Police said he was taken from his job as a clerk at the Circle K on Taylorsville Road.

Blye, Davis and Elder were inside the car and arrested at the scene. Blye had nothing to say in his police interview. However Elder and Davis both said they all got in the car in the first place for a flat tire. Elder said Davis stole a tire of Bloemer's car at the Circle K. "Joe hits (Bloemer) and he's just laying there and I'm talking to him saying look, I'm sorry this happened. I didn't have nothing to do with it," said Elder.

Davis said he didn't have anything to do with it either. "I never once knew anyone was in the trunk of that car, never touched anyone, never did any of the things they said one officer said they tied him up I never once put my hands on him period.

Blye, Davis and Elder are charged with wanton endangerment, complicity to kidnapping and robbery.
