(KFYI News) A man and woman were arrested for allegedly holding a 13-year-old Honduran boy hostage and demanding smuggling fees from his parents.

Fraces Salas, 27,  and Jesus Millan-Rodriguez, 31, were charged with kidnapping and possession of marijuana.

Salas is a U.S. citizen, Rodriguez is a Mexican national.

A woman in Florida called Homeland Security agents to report her son was being held by smugglers in Phoenix, fearing for his safety.  The boy was recently smuggled into the United States and she said they demanded more money.

Agents found the boy unharmed in an apartment on I-17 and Bethany Home Rd. They also found a pound of marijuana in a plastic bag.
