Two Kidnappers Hunted
June 12, 2009
There are two men wanted for a May 3rd kidnapping in California.
Mr. Schiff: There are two men wanted for a May 3rd kidnapping in California.
Mr. Roberts: “Liberato Cardenas-Vega, he’s 30 years old, and Israel Ledesma Moreno, he’s 27 years old.”
Mr. Schiff: Special Agent Don Roberts. He’s at the FBI’s Los Angeles office. He says the two allegedly broke into a San Bernardino home and kidnapped a young boy.
Mr. Roberts: “At the conclusion of the home-invasion robbery, they grabbed little 3-year-old Briant Rodriguez, took him from the home, saying they were going to take him to Mexico and kill him.”
Mr. Schiff: Roberts says it’s not known why this happened.
Mr. Roberts: “We really don’t know what their intent was upon entering, and we don’t know whether they knew exactly who was in the house when they broke in.”
Mr. Schiff: Roberts says good police work eventually led to these two subjects.
Mr. Roberts: “Some physical evidence left behind at the home led to the identification.”
Mr. Schiff: You can help find these guys. Wanted flyers are up at FBI.gov. I’m Neal Schiff of the Bureau, and that’s what’s happening at the “FBI, This Week.”
