Woman fakes son’s kidnapping to get money from ex

Kidnapping staged to get money from ex, feds say:

This sounds like a plot to a bad 70’s sitcom.

Alejandra Arriaza of Miami, Florida told her 17-year-old son that she was taking him to Wal-Mart to buy him an iPhone. Instead he was kidnapped by a ‘masked intruder’. The ‘intruder’ then directed Arriaza to a trailer where ‘El Negro” was waiting. Really? El Negro was the best they could come up with? Why not Senor Grande? The kidnappers called the boy’s father for ransom. He had recently come into money from the sale of a business. Arriaza even told the father that the ‘kidnappers’ were using a blow torch on the boy’s feet.

They might have gotten away with it too if it wasn’t for those meddling FBI agents. The FBI found the location of the trailer. The boy was able to identify one of his captors as Alejandra Arriaza’s penis, Angel Ponce. The penis’ cousin, Joel Boza, was also charged in the kidnapping.

It was all a plot for Arriza to get some money from her ex-husband. Greed really does make people do incredibly stupid things. Kidnapping, faked or otherwise, is a federal offense and the trio could be sentenced to life behind bars.

Thanks to Lori for the tip.
