Kidnap victim's dad faces drug charges
Wed Jan 17, 3:46 PM ET
The father of a kidnapping victim was charged with drug offenses after authorities became suspicious of his agreement to pay a $150,000 cash ransom for his daughter.
Cornell Clisby, 39, was being held Wednesday in lieu of $9 million bail, charged with drug trafficking and conspiracy, a jail officer said. He was arrested Monday, accused with two others of arranging to take possession of 135 pounds of cocaine worth $7 million, authorities said.
Authorities had been suspicious since July, when Clisby's 17-year-old daughter was kidnapped from her home in suburban North College Hill.
North College Hill Police Chief Paul Toth said he was surprised when Clisby said he had the cash to pay the ransom, and he alerted drug enforcement agencies after hearing allegations that Clisby had bragged about dealing drugs.
"The kidnapping put him in the limelight," Toth said.
The ransom drop went awry, but police chased a suspect to a house where the girl was rescued.

A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.
It enriches those who receive it,without making poorer those who give.It takes but a moment, but the memoryof it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that hecan get along without it,and none is so poor but thathe can be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home,fosters goodwill in business,and is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary,cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,or stolen, for it is something that is of novalue to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.Give them one of yours, as none needs a smileso much as he who has no more to give.
