A man’s grandson has been arrested by police after allegedly stealing $200-thousand dollars from his grandfather over an 18-month period. 21-year old Arthur L. Porter reportedly told his grandfather at one point that he had been kidnapped and needed money. Another story involved death threats against family members. Both stories were fabricated in order for Porter to allegedly extort money from his 83-year old grandfather. Porter has been arrested and charged with felony theft and elder abuse. There is no word on what happened to the stolen money.
