One of the suspects arrested on Monday at a cocaine lab is Alex B., who was recently convicted of his involvement in the controversial kidnapping of two second cousins at a car company in Breda in 2015. That writes BN/De Stem.
The perpetrators of that kidnapping posed as a police arrest team and took the two victims in a van. The two spent several days in a small trailer in a closed shed in Ulicoten. There they were barely fed and had no toilet.
B. was sentenced to three years in prison together with two other men. He had been seen several times at the warehouse in question.
The police suspect that B. had ties in the past with the so-called Juliët gang. This group of West Brabant criminals became active in the 1990s and engaged in extortion and kidnappings, among other things.
B. was arrested in 2006 on suspicion of kidnapping a businessman from Oosterhout. In 2012, the police searched his home for (DNA) traces of the liquidated Amsterdam criminal Senol Tuna.
