Washington, This File photo shows Sunny, Foreground and Bo Portuguese water dogs belonging to president Barak Obama A man who plotted to kidnap the Obama family’s pet dogs was arrested in Washington on Wednesday with a cache of weapons and ammunition in his car, the U.S. Secret Service said.
According to a filing in District of Columbia Superior Court, the Minnesota field office of the Secret Service first learned of Stockert’s intention to kidnap one of the Obamas’ Portuguese water dogs.
Upon his arrest, Scott D. Stockert, 49, of Dickinson, North Dakota, made a series of outlandish claims to officers – that he was Jesus Christ, that he was the son of John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe, that he planned to run for president, and that he was there to kidnap Bo or Sunny, the Obama’s dogs, the Secret Service said in a court document.
During his release, Stockert cannot possess any real or imitation weapons, or go near the White House or Capitol, the judge ordered. Man Drove A Truck Filled With Weapons To D.C. To Kidnap Obamas’ Dog, Secret Service Says
