Julián Leyzaola Pérez, the chief of the Municipal Public Security of Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, made some strong statements after learning about the arrest of the four gunmen who executed José Manuel Rivas, the police coordinator of the Municipal Police station Benito Juárez.
The chief said he is extremely angry about what happened, "let them threaten me those dogs sons of bitches" (Que me amenacen a mí esos perros hijos de la chingada), he said while challenging the members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
Also in the last days Leyzaola has worked from the station Benito Juárez, after police officers said that they were afraid to work on this particular police station.
Leyzaola said there is no doubt in his mind that his police agency still has bad cops working for organize crime, "That makes us vulnerable to any attack, we cannot have corrupt people in the Police and soon I will fire them."
Four sicarios of the Sinaloa Cartel arrested in the execution of the police commander.
Four suspected gunmen belonging to the criminal group of the Sinaloa cartel led by Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman Loera were arrested within minutes of killing the police coordinator of the station Benito Juárez in the city of Juarez, José Manuel Rivas López .
The detainees were arrested after having committed the murder in the neighborhood of Oasis Revolución and were in possession of two rifles, numerous rounds of ammunition, radios and mobile phones.
The alleged killers were identified as Miguel Hernández Hernández, 21, Miguel Marquez Estrada, 23, Jesús Adrián Ramírez Hernández, 23, and Luis Lorenzo Irigoya, 31, who claimed to belong to the criminal group of "Chapo" Guzman.
According to the Coordinator of "Operativo Coordinado Juárez" and man in charge of federal forces, Raul Avila Ibarra, said that the gunmen killed the police commandeer because he had interfered with their criminal acts in the southeastern sector of the city.
They were also found in possession of two vehicles reported as stolen: a 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier and black 2003 white Trail Blazer pickup.
