Extortion claimed in case of company information

Two former employees tried to extort money from their former boss in exchange for important company information, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.

Agents detained a 28-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman in the case Friday afternoon. The 48-year-old businessman is a U.S. citizen, they said.

Agents said that the pair demanded $1,800 for the return of the business information. The businessman delivered the money at a specified location in west San José Friday afternoon, and agents picked up the suspects after the transaction.
