Mexican Marines Arrest Zeta Leader "El Bam Bam" in Veracruz

By Rafael Carranza
Valley Central
The Zeta leader for the embattled port city of Veracruz, Mexico is in federal custody following his arrest on Tuesday.

The Mexican Navy received an anonymous tip regarding the whereabouts of Carlos Arturo Pitalua-Carillo, also known as “El Bam Bam.”

Soldiers arrested him with five other men, and seized several high powered rifles and ammunition.

The Mexican Navy is linking all six men to two separate attacks on military checkpoints near the city.

Pituala-Carrillo is believed to be the Zetas’ leader for the port of Veracruz.

The city that has reached notoriety in recent weeks for the large number of killings targeting Zetas cartel members, by a group known as “Los Mata Zetas” or the Zetas Killers.

Back in September, the bodies of 35 suspected Zetas members and allies were dumped in the middle of a busy intersection.

Several days later, Mexican authorities uncovered the remains of 32 other people at several homes throughout the city.

Again, the group calling themselves the “Mata Zetas” also claimed responsibility.

The State of Veracruz, some eight hours south of the Rio Grande Valley, is the latest and one of fiercest battlegrounds between rivaling cartels.

The fighting can be traced to the ruthless Zetas cartel and the powerful Sinaloa Drug Cartel, which battle for control of profitable trafficking routes, especially along Mexico’s gulf coast.

  7. I agree, very few of the military tactial guys left. They have all been popped but most have been killed. The Z's you see now are not nearly as equiped or trained as any military. Let alone Americas!

  9. I think it's better if they wear military style clothing then the Marina could kidnap them easier right? if they are wearing civilan clothing they could pass by a convoy like nothing.

  10. Like it was stated by a few of y'all already the original zetas were ex GAFE (Mexican Special Forces). Now days they just have a bunch of greedy wannabe's. Why do you think they are the fastest expanding cartel in mexico? Because they just take anyone who wants to join or they force people to join. Just look at how many of then they have been killing and catching lately. When do you ever heart about any of them bring ex military? RARELY if so.

  11. why do they continue saying the Boca Del Rio 35 slaughtered were suspected ZETAS?

    the PGR has made it clear TWICE that only 6 had any type of criminal record and were not narco related....

  14. I think they were halcones/retail street corner dealers probably, and others of them were relatively innocent, boyfriends or social friends of Zetas, I don't believe they killed 35 strangers and tried to pass them off as Zetas.

    I don't know if 18-25 year old retailers and lookouts are going to have extensive criminal backgrounds, a lot of them were probably new at the whole thing. Killing innocents for propaganda on this level isn't as beneficial as actually hitting their street level operators. It's war of propaganda, sure, but a regular war as well.

  15. I dont know why people think the Zetas stopped recruting active military or ex-military in the late 90's.It makes me laugh dont they know the zetas are and have been recruiting ex-military all this time.The fact is right now there probably taking in ex militarys and not just from mexico,they got kaibiles from guatemala and even some U.S army soilders in there ranks!!!!!

  16. The strategy that the Sinaloa Cartel has been using for quite awhile is simple:KiLl INNOCENTS and say they belong to a group,or KILL INNOCENTS and blame it on a rival.
    Maybe with the goverment on their side,maybe not.

    Theres sooooo Many reports and accusation by family of the innocent victims against specially GENTE NUEVA and now recently MATAZETAs,or better yet MATAINOCENTEs because thats exactly what they do MOST of the time. You guys should look more into REALITY and stop hearing their music,Narcocorridos.

    Remember the execution of two Chapos,the Sicarios mentioned: Chapos people are not how they say they are.
    Do you guys still believe that in a war against zetas Chapos gonna play fair??????????

  18. @4:28PM (10/27),
    Really? Ex-American soldiers joining the Zetas cartel in Mexico? Never heard that one before...where did you get your information and where is the link that substantiates your comment because I doubt it! Freakin "La Barbie" was American born and the media made a huge deal about this fact..so if there were any ex-American Soldiers fighting for the Zetas in Mexico..it would be all over the news not just in Messico! Stop pulling BS out your ass and making comments that have no facts backing them. The "rank and file" that make up the Zetas are nothing more than poor, dug addicted, petty thugs, who have absolutely no combat training..are there ex-military personnel serving the Zetas? Sure..but they are far and few between and just because they were a part of the Mexican military at one time doesn't make them some sort of "bad asses!"

  19. Well, Mexican Marines killed 8 zetas 10/27/11 in Nuevo Laredo. Among the dead was Nuevo Laredo Plaza zeta boss Basurto aka El Grande. Looks like if the Marines are doing a magnificent job with whatever equipment and weapons they have. Omar Trevino Moralez Z 42. aka El Patuleco designated La Ardilla a zeta from Piedras Negras, Coahuila the new plaza boss. Looks like Z 42 does not trust his sicarios and went into hiding. Basurto's remains were at Funeraria Vazquez, lots of marines and soldiers in the outside waiting for zetas to arrive at the services to take care of them to no avail. Zeta bosses, sicarios and halcones did not show up. Marines and Soldiers still outside Vazquez Funeral Home waiting for them!!!!!!!

  20. Yeah! Basurto is a nephew of Alfonso Pena aka El Poton , and Antonio Pena aka Tony. El Poton Pena is a zeta boss and business partner of Don Felipe Garcia a former Cartel de Sinaloa associate turned zeta. And Antonio (Tony) Pena is a zeta that turned DEA informant after he was caught with a huge load of cocaine and charged with possession with intent to distribute and conspiration to tansport, distribute and sale of a controlled substance (cocaine) Mexican marines and soldiers, federales and DEA agents are doing a great job in the south border.

  22. Mexico Drug cartels are going to screw around our border for so long, U.S policy makers are going to send Rangers,Navy Seals,Delta Teams when they've had enough. It will be catastrophic for Mexico.U.S Military has a history of war-like behavior.They love to fight and they're very good at it.As we speak,they're probably analyzing every incident occuring in Mexico.El Chapo...HA...The SEALS could find him in 2 months!
