    Police say there are new developments in a bizarre attempted kidnapping case in Radnor Township.
    John Felder, 76, was arrested back in November after police say he posed as a flower deliveryman and tasered a homeowner in an attempted kidnapping. Police say Felder had plans to kidnap other victims in an attempt to get cash.

    Felder was later released after posting his $175,000 bail, according to court records. Police announced they discovered Felder was renting a storage unit in King of Prussia, Montgomery County. A judge signed off on a search warrant on Wednesday and investigators searched the unit.

    NBC10 cameras rolled as police used a K-9 and then bolt cutters to enter the locker. When they finally opened it they discovered it was completely empty except for a 9mm long barrel gun, according to investigators. Police are currently trying to track down where the weapon came from.

    NBC10 reached out to Felder’s attorney but he did not comment.
