Investigators say at least one of the men claims to have been locked up for almost a decade
(Houston, TX) -- Four men are now at a Houston hospital after apparently being locked inside a "prison room" for about a decade. Police say the men were found this morning in a garage filled with trash. They're still trying to sort out details. The victims are said to be between the ages of 54 and 80. Investigators think they may be homeless, and could have been plied with beer and cigarettes in exchange for their Social Security and VA checks. Four women were also found inside the home. It's not known if they were prisoners. One man is in custody, but no charges have been filed.
