According to United States Attorney Laura Duffy, the last of three men charged in a cross-border kidnapping plan has entered a guilty plea on May 21. Antonio Zermeno Garcia, Luis Miguel Salas Rodriguez and Carlos Alberto Andrade-De La Cruz, have all now admitted their March 2012 plan to kidnap three victims from San Diego and take them to Tijuana to face a drug debt. The suspects were arrested before carrying out their plan due to a confidential informant and wire-taps by the FBI.

According to information released by the FBI, Andrade-De La Cruz admitted to being the organizer of the group and that he had crossed into the U.S. illegally in order to commit the crime. Conspiracy to commit kidnapping can face a potential life sentence. However, the defendants are likely to be given a lighter sentence due to the plea bargain.
