Keep Boston Clean: Dominican Kidnap-gang chief gets life in Prison
The ruthless leader of a Lawrence kidnapping crew that targeted drug dealers was sentenced to life in prison yesterday for his role in “predatory” abductions.

 

 

Danny “Maestro” Veloz, 41, remained stonefaced as he was placed in handcuffs following Judge Richard G. Stearns’ decision to sentence him to life in prison. Veloz’s family — including his mother and younger brother — waved goodbye as Veloz was hauled out of court by U.S. Marshals.

The case short:

Skeleton mask torture gang dressed as cops stalked man by tagging his car with GPS tracker before kidnapping him and burning him with hot irons 

 

  • Specialty gang known as 'Joloperros' - Spanish for 'stick-up guys' 
  • Will go to trial this summer over an elaborate July 2012 kidnapping
  • Dressed up as police and wore skeleton masks to abduct a 'drug dealer'
  • They held the victim for ransomtorturing him in a safe house
  • Victim finally escaped and called police, who arrested the gang
  • The plot was one of many underground kidnappings taking over Boston

The FBI says the 'Veloz Crew' - headed by Danny Veloz, who is known as 'The Maestro' - went to elaborate lengths to kidnap a man they believed to be a major dealer of homemade Percocet pills, which deliver a heroin-like high.

The plot was one of many underground kidnappings that police say targeted dealers in order to obtain large ransoms of cash or drugs, believing that going after criminals reduced the risk of involving authorities.

 

The Joloperros tagged the victim's car with a GPS tracker and monitored his movements for months on a big-screen TV inside Veloz's house,The Boston Herald reported.

The tracking device would call Veloz's cellphone once the target's car started moving. 

On July 12, 2012, they were ready to pounce.

The gang had a kidnap bag full of police shirts, skeleton masks and guns.

According to The Herald, Jose Guzman, Henry Maldonado, Thomas Wallace, Luis Reynoso, and Gadiel Romero all suited up and got into  a white Toyota minivan. 

Veloz, the leader, was on the phone to Guzman from another location. 

As the victim pulled into his driveway about 7 p.m., the abductors pulled in behind and came out with guns.

Both the target and the man he was with were abducted.

The target was hit in the head with a handgun, causing 'blood to spray throughout the van,' according to an affidavit. 

The two were taken to Maldonado’s apartment in Manchester, N.H., where the crew demanded payment.

The target victim refused to cooperate, and was beaten and burned with a hot iron, the affidavit said.

He suffered several burn injuries.

However the victim was lucky enough to escape through a bathroom window and found his way to a neighbor's house for help. 

Police descended on the property arrested three suspects who were leaving the premises.

Another suspect was found hiding, according to Fox 25.
