Two women created a fake profile on a social network to contact a man in order to kidnap him and demand ¢5 million colones for his release, reported the Deputy Prosecutor of Pérez Zeledón.

Both women and four other men were detained by the judicial authorities as suspects in the crimes of “secuestro extorsivo y robo agravado” (extortive kidnapping and aggravated robbery).

The detainees were identified with the surnames Mora Zúñiga (presumed leader of the group), Fernández Picado, Jiménez Mora, Zamora Corrales, Vargas Delgado and Zúñiga Gamboa (the last two are women).

The detention took place last Wednesday night, on public roads, in the area of Quebradas de Pérez Zeledón.

The judicial authorities raided the house where this organization was staying and it was possible to confiscate important evidence for the investigation.

The Kidnapping

On May 30, the accused had set up a fake profile, in a social network (not identified), so that the victim believed he was being contacted by a friend.

Apparently, he was invited to a house in Barrio Aeropuerto, where he was met by the rest of the accused.

“It is suspected that the victim was assaulted and then his family contacted, to pay ¢5 million colones (US$8,500) in exchange for his release.

However, after some negotiation, an agreement was reached to pay half of the amount requested and the victim was released,” said the Public Prosecutor’s Office.
