An inexperienced band abducted Wilson Ramos, authorities say
Venezuelan police officers studied the behavior of kidnappers operating in the area and found clues to solve Washinton Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos case
A string of mistakes made by inexperienced criminals who wanted to jump from the low minors to the major league of the criminal world allowed authorities to solve the kidnapping of Venezuelan professional baseball player Wilson Ramos in record time.
Police investigators examining the case were struck by the fact that the criminals decided to kidnap the Venezuelan catcher who plays for Washington Nationals in a closed area where any incident may have occurred. The kidnappers acted with their face uncovered, which allowed authorities to draw composite sketches of criminals. The abduction was made at a wrong time (7:15 p.m.) when there were a lot of pedestrians and vehicles in the area.
The fact that the police found the van employed by the gunmen who kidnapped Ramos was a key factor to find the major league baseball player.
Other five people involved in the kidnapping were arrested on Sunday night, authorities said.
