The secret service says first dogs Bo and Sunny Obama were the target of a kidnapping plot. 49-year-old Scott Stockert from North Dakota was arrested at the Hampton Inn near The White House and authorities say a search of his truck revealed a shotgun, .22

A 49-year-old North Dakota man, who allegedly plotted to kidnap one of the Obama family’s dogs, was arrested in Washington, D.C., this week on a weapons charge, according to the Washington Post.

The Secret Service arrested Scott D. Stockert, 49, of Dickinson, N.D., with a cache of weapons and ammunition in his car, the report says. He allegedly told agents that he planned to kidnap one of the Obamas’ Portuguese water dogs.

From the Post:

[Stockert] made a series of outlandish claims to officers: that he was Jesus Christ, that he was the son of John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe, that he planned to run for president, and that he was there to kidnap Bo or Sunny, the Obamas’ dogs, the Secret Service said in a court document.

According to a filing in D.C. Superior Court, the Minnesota field office of the Secret Service first learned of Stockert’s intention to kidnap one of the Obamas’ Portuguese water dogs.

After Stockert drove his pickup truck from North Dakota to New York to Washington, Secret Service officers found him at a Hampton Inn at 901 6th Street NW, the court document said.

The report notes that Stockert was charged with carrying a rifle or shotgun outside his home or place of business, which is illegal in most cases in the District.
