Sponsored by:

Two Peruvian men in the country on work visas have been jailed as suspects in the Monday carjacking and kidnap of an area woman. Jose Villar and Alonso Collantes are being held pending charges.

Monday afternoon, the 28 year-old woman was kidnapped at gun point in front of the Sonora Wal-Mart as she left the store and got into her car. She was forced by the pair to drive them to Calaveras County and was eventually released near Murphys. She was unharmed in the ordeal.
