SI says this is a report but two newspapers from Venezuela, El Nacional, and El Universal have already posted more details about the story.

It was a special ops rescue done by officers from the CICPC (Venezuela's equivalent to the U.S.' FBI). The criminals had Urbina's mom in a remote location, surrounded by mountains, in the southern state of Bolivar.

The police report mentions that 12 men were in the place at the time of the operation. Some of these individuals were citizens of neighbor country, Colombia. Two of the criminals were killed during the operation, several others were detained and a couple manage to ran away. Also, the police found some 600 kilos of cocaine in an adjacent building to the one where the woman was held captive.

I hope Urbina can have himself a really good season this year (except when he pitches against us, of course). He deserves it after going through this terrible ordeal.
