Saturday morning at least two "narco-banners" addressed to President Felipe Calderon and Governor Rodrigo Medina were hung from pedestrian bridges in Nuevo Leon.
Shortly before 6:30 a.m. 15-20 gunmen, dressed in black, created panic and chaos in the Buenos Aries neighborhood of southern Monterrey by stopping the driver of a semi-trailer at gunpoint and using it to block all three northbound lanes of Revolution Ave.
According to witnesses, gunmen fired their weapons into the air and intimidated unsuspecting motorists and pedestrians as several others performed the task of hanging a banner from a nearby pedestrian bridge.
Extra-officially it was reported more than 80 spent assault rifle casings were recovered from the scene.
An identical banner was found hanging from a pedestrian bridge in El Cercado, Santiago, Nuevo Leon, 30 km. south of Monterrey.
The banners read:
Mr President: Felipe Calderon Hinojosa
Mr. Governor: Rodrigo Medina
There needs to be more attention paid to the prisons of Nuevo Leon, especially the Apodaca prison where certain prisoners have the privilege to come and go. In days to come there will be a massive prison-break. There are people on the outside interested in rescuing "FITO" from the Apodaca prison. This person has a warrant for his arrest in the United States for cocaine distribution and works for la "RANA", the man currently in charge of Los Zetas in Nuevo Leon and a primary exporter of drugs to the United States.
The real name of "FITO" is:RODOLFO PEÑA TERCERO and the name he is listed under in the Apodaca Prison is: ABELARDO GARCIA PEÑA
