An 18 year old living in really filthy conditions in Pebble Beach with his 85-year-old great-grand-mother was arrested April 4 on suspicion of extortion, elder abuse and being under the influence of toluene, according to Monterey County Sheriff’s Sgt. Scott Ragan. Addicted to the inhalant, Jim Ferris reportedly threatened his great-grandmother if she didn’t purchase more for him.
She has a few cats and a couple of dogs, and he held one of the dogs with a pair of scissors like he was going to stab the dog if she didn’t go out and get his aerosol can of choice, which is spray-on deodorant, Ragan said. So she left, went into Pacific Grove some where and called 911.
Way to go grandma.
