The extortion case involves a male victim who answered a
Craigslist ad relating to an in-home massage service that involved

victim of going to law enforcement after the victim was told he had
sexual contact with a minor, said Sergeant Doreen Jokerst with
Parker police. The victim ended up paying $250,000 in extortion
money after the suspects threatened to contact law enforcement.
All suspects are being held on a $100,000 bond and the
investigation is ongoing. The Parker Police Department is asking

suspects in relation to a similar ad or have any additional
