Three members of the Los Zetas cartel who were arrested during a recent traffic stop confessed to killing bodyguards protecting the governor of the state of Nuevo León in June, a federal prosecutor’s aide said on Nov. 28.

The aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said Arturo García Celaya, 24, José Daniel Hernández Guzmán, 25, and Nicolás Yepes Álvarez, 34, admitted to killing two of Gov. Rodrigo Medina’s bodyguards and a bodyguard for a mayor last November, in addition to three police officers in May.

The subjects were arrested at the intersection of avenues of Pablo Livas and Carlota in the community of Progreso in Guadalupe, when they were driving aboard a Tsuru.

After they were taken in to custody elements of the federal forces found a high powered rifle AR-15, a .12 gauge shotgun, as well as fully loaded magazines.

Authorties also seized marijuana, cocaine packaged for distribution, Nextel cellular devices preferred by organize crime and at least three notebooks with data related to Los Zetas criminal organization.

The detainees confessed to working as "estacas" and "halcones" (informants and lookouts) for the criminal group and said they participated in the execution of police officer Carlos Alberto Reyes Almaguer, head of bodyguards for the mayor of San Pedro, Mauricio Fernandez. They also confessed of being responsible in the execution of three policemen from the municipality of Guadalupe, which occurred on May 18 of this year in a mall of the main plaza.
García and Hernández had escaped from prison in December.

Halcones sent to kill the governors bodyguards? Wouldn't they use professional sicarios for a hit against a governor? Something not right about this.

I bet you can get them to confess to anything if you tablazo them long enough. These guys probably don't have a full brain between the three of them.

For the person responsible for translating the word "estacas" is another word for sicario. I live in mexico and am familiar with the word.

they should have given them the penalty of hang or shot ive seen the mexican prisons and they are not that guarded. the prisoners dont even have prison uniforms they were their own normal clothes
they have to buy their own food. mexico has to bring back the death penalty.

While we broach the subject of ignorance and stupidity, reference your generalization of Americans; especially considering the fact that you have no idea where these people are from. Well done, moron.
