Cops: Mom Duct-Taped Daughter's Boyfriend

Authorities say a San Bernardino County woman has been arrested for allegedly trying to kidnap her daughter's boyfriend and haul him away to Northern California.

A sheriff's spokeswoman said Tuesday that Anna Gaffney and Linda Chevalier went to the young man's home on Saturday afternoon and tried to tie him up with duct tape. The victim told authorities the women said they were taking him to Northern California to get him away from Gaffney's 21-year-old daughter.

Authorities say both women were arrested on suspicion of attempted kidnapping.

Officials say the girlfriend was later arrested for investigation of dissuading a witness and extortion for allegedly trying to get her boyfriend to recant his statements to authorities.
