The Kidnappers Called Back!
For the past 2 nights, 7News has been telling you about the kidnapping which happened in Copper Bank, Corozal. The captors managed to get with $15,000 in cash, but it seems that this amount wasn't enough. Supt. Andrew Ramirez, the officer commanding Corozal Police, confirmed to our colleagues at CTV3 News that the assailants made contact with the family today demanding more money.
Viewers may remember that when the 4 men stole the money, they took Eduardo Nah's cell phone and gave him a chip which they would use to contact him. They did so today. Corozal Police have been busy today tracking down leads, trying to find out who these individuals are, but they have not made any progress as yet.
As we reported, Eduardo Nah; his common-law, Roxannie Cruz; and his brother, Sabino Nah were ambush on Monday night at their house when they arrived. The men ransacked the family house, and too Eduardo and Roxannie hostage. They drove the couple out to a cane field in San Estevan Village and interrogated Eduardo about the location about cocaine he had allegedly found. He told police that he didn't know what they were talking about, it wasn't until he handed over 15 the large sum of cash that he and his wife were released.
