When the victims opened the door, the suspects forced their way inside. Police said the suspects demanded drugs and money before kidnapping the two men.Police said right after the men were kidnapped, the woman and the child left the scene and went to a friend's house. Investigators said it was two hours before she called the police. Detectives are trying to determine what happened during that time.1st: they opened the doorPolice said they're not sure if the victims were specifically targeted or if this was a random incident.
2nd: why would the invaders demand drugs?
3rd: suspicious delay on the woman's part; to call police.

Most if not all of these kidnappings are a result of the "victim" being either a competing "coyote" or competing drug dealer. They were involved in an "industry" where these risks are the end result. I am not going to say I don't feel sorry for them but if that is the case, they reaped what they sowed. I only feel sorry for the innocent children who have to live like that.
A lot to the story doesn't add up. They ransacked the place and took the 2 MEN with them and asked for a ransom on the men. Why not take the woman and child? Then the woman goes over to a friends place and doesn't call the police for two hours. The men are released, with the assumption they weren't hurt, and no one could give a description. The whole situation smells fishy to me.

Didn’t call police for 2 hrs – worried about being deported.
She only needed 10 minutes to rehide the drugs.
