San Pedro Garza Garcia, Nuevo Leon - Mexican marines today conducted new incursions where they were able to secure the capture of a leader of the Beltran Leyba cartel in San Pedro Garza Garcia, Nuevo Leon. The detainee was described as Alberto Mendoza Contreras, "El Chico Malo," the leader of the cartel in the plaza belonging to the cartel of the Beltran Leyva brothers.
The marine commandos managed to take Mendoza Contreras by surprise along with his top deputy, who refused to provide his name, who were taken in to custody with little resistance.
Previously, the Marines had conducted an operation where they had arrested 10 members of that organization in a safe house in San Pedro Garza Garcia where they seized numerous weapons and vehicles. There was an apparent confrontation but it is still unknown if anyone was killed or wounded.
The Navy Secretariat announced that this afternoon they will present in a press conference the detainees in the municipality of San Pedro Garza Garcia.
This blow to the Beltran Leyva cartel is another action by the Mexican armed forces that they have made since last December when they also managed to kill the top capo of the cartel, Arturo Beltran Leyva, El Barbas.
