A Bend resident is facing charges of extortion relating to an alleged threat made against a Redmond landscaper last summer. The Deschutes County District Attorney’s office says 61 year old Thomas Schlossmacher sent a text to Cuauhtémoc (qua-TAY-moc) Cardona threatening to turn him in to immigration authorities if he didn’t pay 15-hundred dollars on a truck that was used as partial payment for Cardona’s landscape work. The D-A’s office says it’s unlawful to threaten to report someone’s suspected immigration status to compel them to do something. Officials say Cardona is a legal U-S resident.
