A Couple is Arrested For Kidnapping a Handyman, and Forcing Him To Do Home Repairs
As hard as it is to find a good repairman, there have GOT to be better ways than KIDNAPPING ONE. On Monday morning, 36-year-old Jason DeJesus and 33-year-old Chanelle Troedson called a 50-year-old handyman over to their house in Morgan Hill, California.
The house is 4,600 square feet and has five bedrooms, a pool, a tennis court, and a beach volleyball court. But it's not clear at ALL how Jason and Chanelle had the money for it, because they're apparently just petty criminals.
When the handyman got there, they BEAT HIM UP and threatened to KILL HIM if he didn't do a bunch of repairs for them. They made him work for six hours, fixing everything from a dishwasher to a broken door. Then they made him get in their truck, so they could take him to a relative's house to do some repairs over there. Fortunately, when the couple stopped for gas, the man made a run for it and called the cops.
Jason and Chanelle were arrested and charged with several felonies, including false imprisonment, kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon, criminal threats, and conspiracy.
