"NORTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. — A 47-year-old man has been charged with extorting more
than $20,000 from his elderly mother by repeatedly threatening to kidnap her
cat and demanding ransom, police said. Garry Lamar was arrested Friday and
released on $200 bail. He has been ordered to stay away from his 78-year-old
mother, Mary Lamar Grancher."
This is just sad, sad for the old lady that her pets were threatened, and sad that this pathetic man would lower himself to such a level.
