Santa Rosa news, California news.

Two brothers were reportedly kidnapped after they failed to pay an amount of pot they purchased from a drug dealer who asked for ransom from their family.

The suspect, Juan Canchola, 24-year-old, was charged with kidnapping for ransom and false imprisonment after he allegedly kidnapped the brothers, tied them using duct tape and zip ties. He allegedly told authorities he did so in order to get the ransom and pay for the amount of marijuana they didn't pay.

Police were able to track the suspect down following a call he made to the victims' mom asking her for ransom. He was apprehended at his residence on the 4200 block of Sebastopol Road.

The identities of the brothers were not revealed.
