TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Tulsa County prosecutors have filed felony charges against a man they say tried to bilk his mother out of $10,000 in a kidnapping scheme.
Nathaniel Reid Six, 20, of Tulsa was charged Monday with two counts of obtaining money by false pretense. He is being held in the Tulsa Jail in lieu of $7,500 bail.
Six's mother, Denise Six, told police that she gave her son $10,000 on April 19 after he told her that drug dealers were going to kill him without the money.
Then last week, she found a ransom note on the front door of her home and answering machine messages indicating he had been kidnapped and $10,000 was needed to free him, Broken Arrow police said.
When police arrived at the drop spot April 24, they found Nathaniel Six in a rented limousine with his friends and an empty bottle of champagne.
Officers searched the limo and also found three bags of marijuana and smoking pipes.
The friends were arrested on misdemeanor drug complaints. The limo driver was released.
