Two Laredo men are now facing charges in a kidnapping for ransom scheme.
A Wichita, Kan., man told police last week he got a call from some guy in Laredo telling him he has the man’s son.
The guy said he’d only release the child if the man sent him a $2,000 Moneygram.
Federal prosecutors say FBI agents went to the house — two men ran out and jumped a fence.
The Wichita man’s son was there as well as another victim who has family in Baton Rouge. The captors wanted $4,000 from the Baton Rouge family.
They found John Pavon and Juan Ancira — both 21 years old.
They each face charges of interstate communications containing demand for ransom and could each face up to 20 years in federal prison if convicted.
