Grandma's Drawers

OCTOBER 10--A Tennessee man forcibly removed $10 from his own grandmother’s undergarments after she refused his demand for cash, according to a robbery complaint.

Jared Otte, a 19-year-old Memphis resident, entered the 63-year-old victim’s home in late-August and “demanded she give him cash,” according to a complaint affidavit.

Otte’s grandmother told police that when she declined to hand over any money, Otte pushed her onto on the bed and “held her down, raised her dress, and removed $10 from her undergarments.”

The woman, a detective reported, “suffered bruising on her arms and leg during this incident.” The complaint does not indicate why Otte needed the cash.

Pictured above, Otte was arrested Tuesday on a felony robbery charge and booked into the Shelby County jail. He was released from custody yesterday after posting $10,000 bond.

Otte is next due in court on October 15. (1 page)
