Dummy of the Week Award Goes to the Cat Bandit

A Rhode Island man is accused of extorting more than $20,000 from his elderly mother by repeatedly threatening to kidnap her cat unless she paid him. Garry Lamar was arrested last week and released on $200 bail. He has been ordered to stay away from his 78-year-old mother.Police said he started threatening to kidnap his mother’s beloved pet just over a year ago, when she kicked him out of her home.

According to authorities, Lamar allegedly kidnapped the cat once during the past year and made kidnapping threats on an almost weekly basis. Police don’t believe the cat was harmed, but they were still investigating.

Police said the mother made at least two dozen payments.
