Eight suspects were formally charged in the kidnapping of Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos in Venezuela.
Six men were charged with directly participating in last week's kidnapping while a 74-year-old man and 59-year-old woman were listed as accomplices by Venezuelan authorities.
In a statement, prosecutors said charges included kidnapping, illegal possession of firearms, using a stolen vehicle and criminal association.
Ramos was abducted at gunpoint while visiting with friends and family at his mother’s house in Valencia. He was found in the mountains surrounding the area Friday.
Venezuelan police commandos were able to rescue Ramos in a flurry of gunfire in the mountainous Montalban area of Carabobo state, arresting his six alleged abductors in the process.
The 24-year-old Ramos had a strong rookie season with the Nationals, batting .267 with 15 home runs and 52 RBIs in 113 games. He was traded to Washington in 2010 for All-Star relief pitcher Matt Capps.
