  • Description

    Armed detectives are maintaining a close guard on the family of England soccer captain, Bobby Moore, after a threat to kidnap his model wife, Tine, and hold her for 10,000 sterling ransom. The round-the-clock watch started after an anonymous letter, sent to a London newspaper, was passed to the police earlier this week.

    Although no attempt at a kidnap has been made so far, police are still not certain the letter was a hoax. The guard is being maintained. Detectives have been helping Mrs. Moore with her shopping and the Moore children--Roberta five, and Dean three-have been playing cops and robbers, with real-life detectives.

    The writer of the letter claimed he was revealing the plot because Moore had suffered enough already. This was a reference to accusations that the England captain stole a 600 sterling emerald bracelet from a hotel in Bogota, Colombia, while staying there with the England World Cup team, last May.
