Grandfather Held in Kidnapping Case

Police arrested the grandfather of a kidnapped 6-year-old Nevada boy, saying they believe the kidnapping is tied in with the man's drug connections with Mexican nationals, according to MSNBC News.

51-year-old Clemons F. Tinnemeyer was apprehended by police in Riverside, California. It is suspected that he stole millions of dollars from the drug traffickers, although it is not clear what role he played, ABC News reported.

Police say three men posed as police officers and broke into the boy's home and tied up his mother and her fiance. After searching the house, they then took 6-year-old Cole Puffinburger, CNN reported.
