Colombian kidnappers chose victims on Facebook: Police .

Colombian police on Wednesday captured alleged members of a criminal group that used Facebook to select, kidnap and torture its victims.

The group would contact wealthy men using false Facebook profiles of beautiful women. They kept up online conversations with the men for several weeks before proposing a date.

“When these men arrived at the site, supposedly to meet the women, they were dosed with scopolamine,” said Humberto Guatibonza, director of the anti-kidnapping and extortion unit of Colombia’s national police. Scopolamine is an odorless and tasteless drug that eliminates free will and erases the memory of its victims.

Then the men were taken to a different location and tortured, Guatibonza said. Only then did the group call the men’s families for their ransom.
