Kidnapping Turns Out To Be Extortion
The Sullivan County Sheriffís Office investigated a kidnapping that turned out to be extortion. Jesse Robinson and Zachary Marshall confessed to fabricating the kidnap story as a way to get money from Robinsonís family. Robinsonís sister got the call from her brotherís phone explaining that she should pay 15-thousand dollars or her brother would be harmed. She thought the voice of the male was that of her brotherís friend Zachary Marshall and that he would settle for 25-hundred dollars. Detectives found out that Zachary Marshall was in fact with Jesse Robinson. When Marshall was contacted by phone he offered to pay the sister back if she chose to pay the kidnapper. When she agreed, Robinson called her back and named Eastern Star Road in Kingsport as a meeting place. Officers then found Robinson and Marshall parked in a church parking lot. The two 19-year olds were placed under arrest, charged with Extortion and transported to the Sullivan County Correctional Facility. (bg)
