SUMTER, S.C. —Police in South Carolina say a 19-year-old blackmailed his own mother, leading her to believe he would be killed if she didn’t pay $130.

WLTX reports Emmanuel Franklin, of Sumter, was arrested on Jan. 24 and charged with blackmail.

Deputies say Franklin’s mother received a call from Franklin and an unknown man on Jan. 22. The unknown man reportedly demanded she put $130 in a mailbox or her son would be hurt or killed.

Franklin reportedly later told officers he made up the story to get $130 from his mother. Source
