Drug kidnapping case lands three in jail

THREE people who kidnapped a Mackay woman over a methylamphetamine drug debt have been jailed.

Judge Brian Harrison was scathing about their "disgraceful, gangster-style and humiliating" attack in which the woman was tied and thrown into the boot of a car.
