Boy's grandfather sought in drug-related abduction, police say



LAS VEGAS, Nevada (CNN) -- Police said they are looking for the grandfather of a boy who was snatched from his Las Vegas, Nevada, home Wednesday by men posing as police officers.
A nationwide Amber Alert has been issued for Cole Puffinburger, 6, of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Clemens F. Tinnemeyer, 51, is being sought for questioning in the case of 6-year-old Cole Puffinburger.

Police Capt. Vincent Cannito said Tinnemeyer has been involved in "significant drug dealing" worth millions of dollars.

Tinnemeyer owns a sightseeing motor home service and works as a driver, police said in a written statement.

He was last seen in Las Vegas on May 21, 2008. At the time, he was driving a white Dodge extended-cab pickup with Mississippi license plates KA6251.

He last contacted his family in August and was reported missing in September.

Authorities said Thursday that the case is related to "illegal narcotics activity" and that the family was targeted; Cannito said Friday that Cole was kidnapped by drug dealers attempting to recover lost money and property.

"These are extremely dangerous people," Cannito said. "This is as bad as it gets."

At least two of the three suspects posed as police officers to enter Cole's home about 7:25 a.m. Wednesday, police said. They tied up the boy's mother and her fiancé and ransacked the house before kidnapping the boy when no money was found, they said.
Don't Miss

In a story published Friday, The Las Vegas Review-Journal quoted unnamed sources as saying a member of the boy's family owes a Mexican drug cartel between $8 million and $20 million, describing the relative as an alleged money launderer for the cartel and saying the person was in hiding.

A search for the boy spans much of the American Southwest, and a nationwide Amber Alert was in effect.

Cole is described as being 3 feet 11 inches tall and weighing 48 pounds, with blond hair and blue eyes. He was wearing a sweatshirt, dark jeans and silver-rimmed prescription glasses, authorities said.

The kidnappers were described as three Hispanic men who spoke with heavy accents.

National and local authorities have said that such drug-related abductions are occurring more frequently in communities near the Mexican border.

Anyone with more information is asked to call Las Vegas Metropolitan Police at 702-828-5678.

Ain't that the sad truth...and makes the grandfather's actions worse 'cuz he's got to know what they could, and will, do to the boy. moping frustrated very mad

I know what I'd like to do to the grandfather...and believe me, it's neither sexy nor pretty. It would equal what they'll do to the boy...and maybe exceed it.

(Sorry...the protective mother in me. Grrrrrr.)

Abducted Boy Found in Las Vegas



By STEVE FRIESS

Published: October 19, 2008

LAS VEGAS — A 6-year-old boy kidnapped from his home early Wednesday was found late Saturday walking along a street in “extremely good condition” a few miles from his house, Las Vegas Police Captain Vincent Cannito said early Sunday.

Officers received calls from people who saw Cole Puffinburger wandering a sidewalk four days after three men trying to collect drug money from the boy’s grandfather burst into the home claiming to be police officers.

“Cole’s home,” said a tearful Robert Puffinburger, the boy’s father, at a press conference outside of police headquarters. “Cole’s back. I’m just glad he’s safe and back home.”

The boy was being checked out at a local hospital but police said he did not appear to be injured.

“Cole Puffinburger has been found, he is safe and he is in our custody,” Captain Cannito said.

The men who entered the home on Wednesday demanded money from the boy’s mother and her fiancé, police said. When the couple said they didn’t have it, the men ransacked the house and vanished with the child.

Federal marshals in Riverside, Calif., arrested the boy’s grandfather, Clemens Tinnemeyer, 51, early Saturday. Mr. Tinnemeyer, who had not been heard from by family in several months, is not charged with a crime but was being held in hopes he might lead police to the boy’s abductors. The police captain said Mr. Tinnemeyer had “stolen a large sum of money, all proceeds from illegal drug activity,” possibly involving a Mexican drug cartel.

The disappearance launched the first national Amber Alert in Nevada’s history, but that alert was called off early Saturday because police said it had run its course.

Police remain on the hunt for the kidnappers and are looking for Jesus Gastelum, a Mexican national in his mid-30s, as a “person of interest,” Captain Cannito said.

“The investigation now moves on to the drug dealing and the potential extortion issues,” hesaid.

Captain Cannito offered few details about the boy’s condition or the status of the rest of the case early Sunday and did not take questions from reporters. Mr. Puffinburger had not yet seen his son when he spoke to the media, but was effusive in praise for the police and the community that rallied behind his family.

“They called me and they said, ‘We got him!’ and I said, ‘You got who?’ and then I realized and was like, ‘Oh my God!,” the father said.



Now I just hope the grandfather gets his just desserts...stealing from a drug cartel.....I would say he's in for a death sentence no matter which way you slice it...if not the justice system...from this cartel for sure!!!!!!!!

No the family isn't to blame...the grandfather is...he was the one who was into laundering money for the drug cartel...then he stole from them...so they in turn went to the boys parents home and demanded money and when they ransacked the house and couldn't find any...they took the little boy..while the grandfather was hiding at the time...this rests solely and squarely on his shoulders and his alone...wave wink hug teddybear hug bouquet mumbling

Yes and quickly , cause less chance of his health having been destroyed or something. I am sure he has a long ways to go for mental health tho over his ordeal. But luckily it doesn't sound like he tortured or anything, so most likely this will not be a big scar on him later.applause wink applause

Wouldn't we all? One of the few things that makes me mad is people who do crap like this (those that put their family in danger, and those that bring people that have nothing to do with this kind of situation into it). At least the boy is okay, just gotta keep hope.
