Agents of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation began looking into a reported kidnapping and home invasion that had occurred on Claiborne Street in November 2017.

Deputies with the Trousdale County Sheriff’s Office initially responded to a 911 call that three masked men with guns entered the home and demanded money. Agents learned that the subjects bound three people who were in the home before placing one of the males in the trunk of a car and driving away.

The investigation revealed that early the next morning, the victim was able to escape his captors near Lebanon, and called 911 from a nearby home.

During the course of the investigation, agents developed information that connected Allen to the abduction.

The Trousdale County Grand Jury returned indictments on Feb. 19.

Allen is scheduled to appear in General Sessions Court on May 13.
