The prime suspect in the astonishing kidnapping case of three women held captive for ten years has been taken into custody - as well as two of his own brothers.
Ariel Castro, 52, of Cleveland, Ohio was arrested on Monday after one of his alleged victims escaped his home and called police.
Neighbors in the street were shocked to hear that Castro, who was once a school bus driver in the Cleveland area, could be capable of abducting three innocent teenagers from the street and tying them up with chains in his basement.
Castro's Facebook page depicts a man with a passion for motorcycles and the bass guitar.
His last post to the social networking site on May 2 says: 'Miracles really do happen, God is good :)'
The man who came to Amanda Berry's rescue, Charles Ramsey, expressed disbelief that his neighbor could be capable of such a disturbed and shocking crime.
He told NewsNet5: 'I've been here a year. I barbeque with this dude, we eat ribs and what not and listen to salsa music. Not a clue that that girl was in that house or that anyone else was in there with.
'He's somebody you look and then you look away because he's just doing normal stuff. You got some big testicles to pull this one off because we see this guy every day.'
Sources close to local station WOIO said the women were reportedly tied up during their captivity and police found chains hanging from one of the ceilings
They also reported there were signs that dirt had recently been moved in the backyard of the house, though police continue to investigate whether or not the dirt will lead to any new evidence in the case.

Guys like this are why we used to have whipping posts and public floggings.
Are they illegals? I see the whole street was full of them. I wonder what secrets these neighbors knew and decided not to tell?
Try to wrap your head around that.
How much did he get in welfare? $100,000 or $200,000?
CNN is running like the devil with this story; it’s taking the focus off their Dear Leader and Benghazi.
It’s guys like this that run on the democratic ticket.
Use to. Now thanks to liberals he will get full medical and dental, a college education (in which a job will be waiting for him at Columbia if he ever gets out) music recreation, internet, TV, food, shelter, clothing, eyeglasses, eye care, drugs, and he gets to sue the state if something doesn’t agree with him.
Ariel Castro---just one of our new American citizens.....AND he votes.
Here's another new citizen.
House painter nabbed in priceless art theft.
A bigger story than finding the three women is finding Eddie Anderson.
No need for whipping posts or flogging when a rope would work just as well, unless the flogging happens first.
I am sick of crap like this. The guy will be looked up to with envy in prison.
A Puerto Rican flag was hanging from their front porch...
Look at those two members of the far-right fringe. They probably don’t even like the government and never, ever, take a hand-out.
Was this guy being supported by Bammy’s gov’t?
More like public hanging I would say. Drawn & quartered would be even better.
When did Mr. Castro arrive in the United States from his home country?
How much in taxpayer funds were expended in raising Mr. Castro and his siblings? What Federal programs administered the distribution of the taxpayer funds?
Was Mr. Castro given a preference over an American in hiring when he bothered to work as a bus driver?
Did the taxpayer provide the succulent ribs Mr. Castro and his neighbors feasted upon?
Did the taxpayer provide the funds used by Mr. Castro to feed the girls he so enjoyed?
Cynical ain't I?
CNN is running like the devil with this story; its taking the focus off their Dear Leader and Benghazi.
And I can already hear the Evening News on NBC and ABC: “We lead tonight with the amazing story of three girls kidnapped ...”.
NOTE The survivalist instincts of illegals DO NOT correspond to freedom and democracy----bedrock America principles we consider sacrosanct. To these individual---its all about "what's in it for me, and who do I payoff to get it."
I don't believe in a quick death for such people, or that there is such a thing as cruel and unusual punishment for their crimes.
if they’re puerto ricans, i believe they’d be natural born citizens of usa
