Two suspects were arrested in the kidnapping of a German immigrant to Israel.

Following an extended undercover investigation, Israeli police revealed Tuesday that the 30-year-old immigrant was held for two weeks in February until his family paid a ransom of $320,000.

Police are seeking three other suspects.

A lawyer for one of the detained suspects described the incident as the result of a business dispute.
