RANCHO CUCAMONGA - The San Bernardino County District Attorney's Office filed criminal charges Tuesday against three men accused of holding captive three illegal immigrants who were smuggled across the Mexican border.
The defendants, all Mexican citizens, kept the immigrants in a Rancho Cucamonga home and told each captive they would not be released until their friends or families paid a $1,000 fee, a prosecutor said.
Before they were taken to the United States, the immigrants - all Mexican citizens - each paid smugglers between $2,000 and $3,000, said John Kochis, a chief deputy district attorney.
The three men were each charged with six felonies: three counts of kidnapping for ransom and three counts of false imprisonment by violence.
The accused men are Jose DeJesus Horta Gutterez, 34, Leonardo Rios Sanchez, 24, and Alvaro Barajas, 38.
They are being held at West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga, and are scheduled to be arraigned this morning in West Valley Superior Court, according to court staff members.
At about 8 a.m. Friday, one of the captives called 9-1-1 using a cellphone and reported that he and others were being held captive, according to a San Bernardino County spokeswoman.
Deputies obtained a search warrant for a home in the 13000 block of Arrow Route, and found eight people inside, Kochis said.
According to Kochis, deputies determined that three of the people were captives, three others were responsible for holding them, and two were illegal Mexican immigrants who had been smuggled but were not being held for further payment.
Kochis said the five immigrants are in custody for a hold by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and may be deported

That doesn't surprise me. They never come to America legally, and they never do anything productive.
