According to Montgomery County Police, Najie Walker, 21, is the worst kidnapper in the world. Walker is accused of kidnapping a poodle named Scrappy and a golden retriever named Scooby and then holding them for ransom.
He then arranged for a drop at what appears the favorite spot for all hardworking dognappers: TGI Fridays. When he failed to show up, he kept calling and then arranged a drop at a McDonalds. He fled upon seeing the cops but was found hiding in a restroom of a nearby business.
He is facing a theft charge. Unfortunately, pets are still considered mere chattel or property — often resulting in charges that are lowered than what such conduct demands. With the death of Scooby, one would expect an animal cruelty or other charge to be added.
