Police: Parking ticket helped solve kidnap plot

VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) — A parking ticket helped police unravel what they say is a bizarre kidnapping plot in a tony Philadelphia suburb.

Radnor Township police say 76-year-old John Felder staged a flower delivery at the victim’s Villanova home last week and hit him with a stun gun. The victim managed to close his door and call police.

Police Superintendent Bill Colarulo says Felder was arrested after a parking ticket linked his rental car to the flower shop where the flowers were purchased.

Colarulo says Felder had a “hit list” of possible ransom targets and a rental property in the Pocono Mountains to keep his victims.

Felder, of Miami, was arrested after trying to purchase a gun on Saturday. He’s being held on $175,000 bail.
