An elderly couple from Martin County, Florida who spent nearly $200,000 supporting their daughter’s drug addiction went to the police after being kidnapped at gunpoint by drug dealers, according to CBS12.com.

Over the past year, the couple believed that they were helping their 28-year-old daughter out with money while she waited for her bank to refund a fraudulent charge of $40,000. They also unknowingly funded her drug dealer by sending him money, believing him to be a U.P.S. courier.

The daughter, Lanelle Angelucci admitted to police to spending the money to support her drug addiction.

When the couple ran out of money, the drug dealer, Nicholas Reeds and two other men, kidnapped them, threatening to kill them.

The victim, her father, is a U.S. Navy veteran, and the local community has gathered support for the couple who have lost all of their money.

The county Sheriff’s office has asked local churches to help support the couple financially and ensure they can afford to stay in their house.

They are currently receiving help from the community paying bills and buying groceries.
