'Toto', who was arrested Sunday morning in Coahuila, has also been accused of the February 3, 2011 killing of the Public Safety Protection and Nuevo Laredo, General Manuel Farfan Carriola, and three others, as well as the escape of more than 150 Nuevo Laredo prisoners last December .

Together with Mora Cortes were arrested five suspected Zetas members, including a Honduran citizen. Six grenades were seized as well as 15 thousand dollars in cash and several vehicles.

At a press conference, Semar spokesmen, José Luis Vergara Ibarra identified Mora Cortes as the leader of Los Zetas in San Luis Potosi, and confirmed that he was the boss of Julian Zapata Espinoza, alias 'El Piolin'

'Toto' is said to also have direct links to Miguel Angel Treviño," Z-40", one of the top leaders of Los Zetas.

Vergara said the detention of 'Toto' and his accomplices took place in a hotel in the city of Saltillo, Coahuila, following intelligence from U.S. and Mexican authorities.

On Sunday, Federal Police arrested Luis Miguel Rojo Ocejo, "El Oso Rojo". 27 year old Rojo Ocejo is accused of managing the financial operations of Los Zetas in San Luis Potosi.

WOW!!! Even though for some, this is not that good, in my opinion, it great! First, "el piolin". After the putiza to "el piolin" by mexican navy, he give up, "el toto". Another putiza a "el toto" who, (according to mexican authority) is link to z40, gave "el oso rojo" and I bet my money, z40's day are numbered.

...just a theory!

another one,

"el Lazca" is talking to the mexican authority and giving the whereabouts of this scumbags. I bet "El Lazca" want "z40" to be on mexican nay's hand.

Its funny how no crimes are solved until the U.S .intervenes. Sorry to say , but it looks like U.S .could help the crime rate drop over there, but the TOO PROUD mexican people, don't want foreigners helping them. So.....let the mayhem contiue.

retired DEA Agent Celerino "Cele" Castillo said, that the Zetas were trained on a farm in south texas by US Agents. These "war on drugs" stuff is a smokescrean, it goes back to Iran-Contra during the 80's.

U.S. Marines???????????????????

Anonymous said...

What is this rambling about marines? Sure they might have received some intel but that is about it.

This is just the Mexican side saying "Look we are doing all we can! Now give us more money"

Much like our law enforcement agencies hype up various threats in order to get more funding.

why do we have to pay to change messyko's diaper

US provides intel. Mexican Marines are the go to guys who secure the arrest. Good teamwork on both sides...lots of arrests these last several days.

Hope they stay focused. Shouldn't have taken a US casualty to gear this thing up.

DALLAS — Three people suspected of smuggling guns to Mexico were arrested in a Dallas suburb on Monday after federal investigators traced the gun used in the killing of a U.S. agent in Mexico to one of them, officials said.

Agents of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives arrested the suspected gun smugglers in morning raids in the southern Dallas suburb of Lancaster, Texas, ATF spokesman Tom Crowley said. Crowley referred questions on other details to the U.S. Justice Department in Washington. The agency planned to issue a news release.

It's a great thing that's happening with all these arrests of "top" criminals in mexico and also the scum that help them here in the US but like I read earlier it is sad it took the life of an American Ice agent to really get this ball rolling! I know we have our own problems here but I still believe we are the best nation and that we need to show the whole damn world "DON'T FUCK WITH US!"
