   Law enforcement officers broke down the door of a music studio in east Grenada early Monday to rescue the victim of an apparent kidnapping.
   According to Chief Ben Williams, the Grenada EOC received an emergency call shortly after 5 a.m., from a man who said he was being held in A-1 Studio on the 1300 block of Jasper Neely Drive.
   “The man said that his captors had fallen asleep, and he was able to gain use of a phone,” said Williams. “The man said he had been beaten and held for two days.
   The Grenada Task Force, which is a combined squad of officers from GPD and the Grenada County Sheriff’s Department, quickly arrived on the scene and forced their way inside.
   They found the victim bound with duct tape, and since they rushed into the building so quickly, officers were able to subdue two suspects without much of a fight.
