Man gets 41 months for extorting Guero Canelo business
A Tucson man who pleaded guilty to extorting Guero Canelo restaurants was sentenced Tuesday to 41 months in prison, the U.S. Attorney's Office announced Thursday.
According to the Sept. 20 plea agreement, Eduardo A. Sabori, 36, wrote ransom and demand letters to the Tucson hot dog vendor between July 9 and July 13.
The letters included death threats to Guero Canelo's owners, family members and employees, and demanded $600,000 to ensure their safety, said Bill Solomon, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Sabori was arrested by the FBI after he retrieved what he thought was a bag containing ransom money from a location designated in the first letter, according to court documents.
