Boy- Still Missing

Dispatcher: Grandfather found in abduction case

Six year old Cole Porter is still missing in a kidnapping case that rivals a plot from the big screen. Now his grandfather, who had been reported missing in September, has been arrested in Southern California after police named him a "person of interest" in the abduction. Investigators say they believe the child's kidnapping may be linked to his grandfather's drug dealings with Mexican nationals.

The boy, Cole Puffinburger, was abducted from a Las Vegas home earlier in the week by three men posing as police officers. Police said they believe the men were Mexican drug dealers and that the kidnapping at gunpoint was a "message" to the grandfather.


College students who stole identities

In Pennsylvania, a college student who with her boyfriend stole the identities of friends and neighbors was sentenced to five years in prison and ordered to pay more than $100,000 in restitution. The girl and her then boyfriend stile the identities of their friends and neighbors to fund expensive salon visits, exotic vacations and fancy dinners. The scheme unraveled when an employee at an upscale salon told police that a check for the girl's $2,250 hair extension job had bounced. About the same time, a neighbor of the couple told police a package she did not order had been sent to her.


Watch out for that E-Ticket

The Tulsa Police department has come up with an e-ticket system. They say it is their way of eliminating the cost and paper wasted on regular paper tickets. Officers will use a hand held computer to issue the tickets. No word on how they will get the e-mail addresses to notify the violators.
