Can't be charged with grand larceny if you only demand $800.

*taps temple*

A 3' gator is not that impressive, and if the suspect wanted an iPhone 8 that badly, I am sure there had to be easier ways to get it.

It's impressive for Connecticut.

THREE FEET IS MORE THAN ENOUGH

$800? I would feel kind of insulted.

Crockett and Tubbs have fallen on hard times.

I think the kidnapping charge is enough.

$800? Can't you get that much for the gator itself in certain markets? I mean, I haven't price checked in awhile but there was a time alligator skin boots etc. could be kinda up there cost-wise.

How can this headline not have the Florida tag?!

I'd pay that much for the 3 foot croc.

"It is an outrageous case, but it is clear from the evidence that this young man's life was in danger,"

Ehh, in danger of being gnawed a bit.  Maybe lose a foot.  A 3 foot gator is not much of a threat.  I mean you could probably kick a 3 foot gators ass if shiat got real.

This is actually one of my greatest fears to tell the truth.

That I would be kidnapped and find out the only ransom I was worth was $800.  I'd like to imagine I'm worth at least one years salary, but to be low-balled like THAT.

Man, talk about adding insult to injury.

"I gotta three-foot gator here an' I'm not afraid to use it."

A three foot gator sounds kind of scary.

Sounds like a BS shakedown orchestrated by the guy and some stupid friends courtesy of *drrrrrruuggggssssss*[sp?]

A. That's not an uncommon crime.
#2 A three foot gator isn't likely to try to take on a full-grown human, especially if it has been kept as a "pet"
d) $800 sounds like an oddly specific amount of money the perps knew the aunt would have; think SS check

d) iii[1] Or the amount the victim owed Garcias. There's definitely more to the story.

Now I have to rewatch the episode of Archer where Pam gets kidnapped.  Great.  My morning is officially shot.

Like I said, it sounded like someone wants the money for a purchase, and the iPhone 8 was what leapt to mind.

Surprisingly not florida....huh...

If it was corked then it was a warning gator.

Maybe the 21 yro doesn't work, and still lives with mom.  $800 would be a bit steep.

No, not for a three footer. Not enough useable hide, and very little meat. A person could/would make more selling its feet and head as individual curios.
