Ricardo Chaves said his 2005 Bentley was stolen a few months back and now he has received threatening text messages. Chaves said they came from a number he didn't know.

Chaves recovered his car a few months ago, but then the texts came. In the texts, the person asks Chaves for money to ensure he wouldn't steal his Bentley again. It also said it's the nicest car he has "smoked meth in."

According to the police report, the officer tried to call the number but there was no answer.  Now the case will "remain inactive pending further leads."
