Aztecas Apprehended while Attempting to Place Narco Manta

Thursday, July 14, 2011 |


The federal police in Ciudad Juarez were able to arrest three members of the street gang "Los Aztecas" when they were getting ready to place a narco-banner directed at the Sinaloa cartel. The arrest happened at around 2030 hours when the three gangsters were travelling in a stolen vehicle and were in possession of the banner.

The men arrested were identified as:

Jose Rosario Flores Morales “El Escaso” 23 years old, who has a record of crimes for auto theft and possession firearm, and served a sentence of six years and four months in prison before being released just 15 days ago.

José Miguel Hernández Venegas "El Cholo" 23 years old.

Lozano Jose Luis Meza “El Negro” 31 years old, this person was detained in the United States while entering illegally and was deported to Mexico just two weeks ago.

Through further investigation police determined that the three men belong to the street gang "Los Aztecas" and work for the criminal organization “La línea” for the Juarez cartel and were to receive 100 dollars for every banner they placed in public. The men were aboard a blue vehicle that had been previously reported as stolen and were in possession of a banner that directed threats against the members of the Sinaloa cartel and was signed by "La línea.” The men were apprehended on the streets Cerro de las Cruces and Segunda Queretaro, in the community of Lomas de San José, the exact place where they were going to place the banner.

This will not be an easy time for these three in jail. We won't hear about it but my guess is they won't come out alive or with all body parts intact. Wouldn't want to be a cellmate.

OMG! $100 for every banner? These guys need to reconsider their career choices or form unions to promote collective bargaining or something Jeez Louise... I wouldn't risk my life to post some banners when wages are these low.

Btw, Rosario is just a kid who reminds me of my friend. Damn, some people are just having bad luck.

Haha brian what is he gonna do? They will be alive for sure!First maybe you should ask how they're getting their ass kicked down there before you say chapo this and that! Why do you love him so much?With a name like brian i doubt you're even from mexico?

they're going to do them like they did la pelirroja..."rescued by the cartel" than "found hung on the same bridge the manta would have been hung from"

and $100 pays a hitman over there too, people are poor and it looks like these people would not get a job at a decent place, not the way they look and with the criminal history they look like they have...so nobody in their right mind, in the USA would do this deed for $100, but in Mexico, it is a different thing...

poverty creates structural violence, and you'd have to live it to understand it.

Funny thing to me is, these guys don't look like this is their first day in the life, they look more like they should be doing hits or kidnappings, not hanging banners, which a 14 year old kid or two could handle. I wonder if they were on some sort of punishment or light work or something. And, yes to the comment about poverty, theres much more to it, esp. in a place like Juarez, and in times like this, but thats still the basic cause.

The banner said the same thing all the other ones do ATTE: TO OUR ENEMIES, WE WILL RAPE, KILL, BEAT, TORTURE, DROWN, STAB, SLEDGEHAMMER, ELECTROCUTE, EAT, DISECT, HANG, SHOOT AND ROB YOU AND YOUR COUSINS AND THEIR COUSINS TOO. AS FOR THE 17 PEOPLE EXECUTED IN THE BAR LAST NIGHT WE DIDNT DO THAT, REMEMBER WE PROTECT YOU, UNLIKE EVERY OTHER CARTEL. SINCERELY ABC40

just an update for everyone reding this story. It was reported on the news that these three men were released by authorities on the basis that it is not a crime to hang banners on prosecutable crime to hang banners on the right of way as apparently either the justice system is saturated or some influence was exerted over the justice system. Anyway they are free and no executions recently have matched their noticable tatoos
