Weapons, drugs seized in Miguel Aleman

Friday, November 25, 2011 |




On Thursday Mexico's Defense Ministry announced the seizure of a weapons cache and 2 tons of marijuana in the municipality of Ciudad Miguel Aleman, Tamaulipas.

Ciudad Aleman is located on the U.S.-Mexico border across the Rio Grande from Roma, Texas. Starr county, where Roma is located, is a major smuggling route for drugs into the U.S. in deep South Texas.

The Ciudad Aleman "plaza" is currently controlled by the Metro faction of the
Gulf cartel.

On Tuesday, Army troops seized a weapons cache from an unoccupied building in the small community of Los Guerra. The cache consisted of:

48 shotguns, assault-type weapons and submachine guns
1 rocket launcher (RPG)
2 grenade launchers
8 grenades
10 explosive devices including pipe-bombs
1,165 magazines
37,900 rounds of ammunition
15 radio devices and various tactical gear

On Wednesday, Army troops seized 518 packages in the outskirts of Miguel Aleman containing more than 2 tons of marijuana.

Mexico's military has seized a total of 5 tons of marijuana this month in Miguel Aleman.

There is very little clarity on this whole Metros vs. R's situation. All we hear is that they're fighting each, but the Z's haven't capitalized, so that questions how serious this inner-war in the CDG is. Are they both still fighting Z's? If so I find it very hard to believe that they're fighting each other. And last I heard the Rojos controlled the stretch from Camargo-Mier (this is from people whom actually live in those areas, and see this stuff going on) anyway we'll just have to wait and see how this plays out.

So according to the retarded liberals who says thanks to the NRA for supplying these scumbags. Where in walmart are the grenade launchers and RPGs? Would it be isle 8 or in between the sporting and motor department? God sometimes I wonder how idiots like the ones who say "this is the type of shit the NRA supports" breath and manage to stay alive.
