US Soldiers Drugged and Kidnapped by Columbia Crime Ring

Two US soldiers, while in Bogota, Columbia, were drugged and kidnapped by a Columbian crime ring.

The two men were at a local sports bar to watch a soccer match.

While distracted by women, who were accomplices of the robbers, drugs were slipped into their drinks, reports the New York Post.

The Con

The ringleader goes by the nickname of “Harry Potter,” but his real name is Jeffersson Arango Castellanos. He claims to make his living by buying and selling clothing, but this robbery scheme is his bread and butter.

In this case, the Department of Justice is charging him with charges of conspiracy, kidnapping and assault targeting internationally protected persons, reports Fox News.

Castellanos and his co-conspirator will face life in prison if they are convicted.

The report stated that after they were drugged, at least one of the men was conned into giving Castellanos his pin number for the ATM. He did this under the guise of providing the man with a payment. Castellanos later his the bank account via an ATM machine.

The men were taken from the sports bar, robbed of their wallets, phones, and other valuables, as well as apparently being beaten, as they were both covered in bruises. Neither of the men had any recollection about what happened due to the drugs they were slipped.

Castellanos was arrested in a similar robbery, then confessed to police that he had also kidnapped and robbed the two soldiers.

The same ring is responsible for the death of Yuddith Alexandra Anaya Pacheco, the sister of a former prosecutor in Bogota. She passed away after being drugged by the ring.

A similar ring was caught in New York not long ago. In those cases, they were using fentanyl to drug their marks and rob them. The thieves were then using facial recognition software to drain their marks accounts.
