PUPPY KIDNAPPED, HELD FOR US$500 RANSOM IN BOSTON
BOSTON -- A man whose truck was stolen with his 11 week old puppy inside said the thief threatened to kill his pet unless he paid a $500 ransom. Instead, the dog owner brought the police along to the planned rendesvous and a suspect was arrested.

Timothy Connors, 30, left the keys in his pickup truck, with the dog inside, when he stepped into a convenience store Monday. That's when Michael Cyr allegedly stole the truck and Dakota, a two pound Pomeranian Maltese mix.

After discovering the trusk was gone, Connors called his cell phone, which he had left inside the vehicle. He said Cyr answered and demanded $500, threatening to kill the dog if police got involved.

Made $43 look $500

Connors eventually agreed to meet the suspect at Boston's Downtown crossing shopping district. He put $43 in an envelope -- padding it with napkins to make it look like $500.

Cyr did not count the money before handing over the keys to the truck and fleeing, authorities said. Police, who had staked out the area, arrested him nearby after a struggle.
