Cops Foil Man's Plan to Kidnap and Ransom Former Co-Worker


A Columbus, Ohio, man is behind bars facing charges that he tried to have his former co-worker kidnapped with the intent of holding her for ransom.

Police arrested Carlton Rotach, 21, Sunday night after detectives and SWAT officers pulled off a sting operation posing as potential kidnappers that Rotach allegedly tried to hire for the job. According to police, Rotach initially contacted a local firm, Ronin Worldwide Executive Protection, about hiring the business to kidnap a 30-year-old female former co-worker for ransom.
