Zeta Leader "Mataperros" Apprehended, Suspected of ordering Casino Royale Attack

Thursday night federal authorities have captured one of the suspected leaders of the Zetas cartel.    Balazar Saucedo Estrada, who’s known to use the moniker  “Mataperros”, is suspected of being one of the leaders of the Zetas that ordered the attack of  the Monterrey Casino Royale last August.
 
Saucedo Estrada was apprehended while driving a stolen Windstar Van, in Monterrey,  bearing Nuevo Leon license plates.  He along with an accomplice tried to pass themselves off as “ halcones” , however the feds knew exactly who he was as they had him under surveillance for weeks.
Confiscated during the apprehension were; weapons, cocaine, marijuana, radio frequency equipment, a stack of lottery tickets, data containing names of professionals and business men, and  44 thousand pesos  in cash.
The criminals set fire to the casino causing the death of 52 persons, mid-day at an hour when women are known to frequent the casinos, consequently the victims were mostly women.  According to the surviving witnesses the perpetrators entered the casino and opened fire indiscriminately into the crowd inside the casino.
If anyone is awarded the 15 Million peso PGR reward for the capture, that remains to be seen.

UPDATE:

More information is coming in, here from the Washington Post:

Saucedo, nicknamed the “Dog Killer,” was shown to reporters Friday in Monterrey in what has become usual procedure in drug war captures.

Jorge Domene, security agency spokesman for Nuevo Leon state said the suspect acknowledged he was involved in the Casino Royale arson and other high-profile crimes in routine confessions that may be permissible as court evidence.
The suspect told police the cartel targeted the casino because its owners hadn’t paid extortion money, a theory officials confirm. At least one of the casino’s owners has denied the claim to reporters.

And still people on this blog want the zetas to win. Imagine we all are going to dress like this without money. Only lascano and miguel trevino are getting the money. But if chapo wins thats economy. When have you seen a will respected nice dressed zeta ? People really ask your self when did the economy go down and when did the zetas first appeared in nuevo laredo make the math. You ask your self why the zetas ? Because before them everone was workin for himself if they deal with drugs im not saying they are good but they sold there drug and bought them selfs cars,furniture,houses,sound system for cars. Wheels,clothes,jewelery,night clubs,restaurants and etc ok. Now that money wasted on those things workers of this stores or restaurants got paid with that money. People tell me how was nuevo laredo and laredo's economy before the zetas got to nuevo laredo? You are goin to say great .

I can't believe these guys. The guys in the shirts with the big Polo logos were tacky but the last bunch are just slobs. What do they do with their money? They need to see pictures of Al Capone and John Gotti. These guys had style.

The Zeta leaders in N.L aka "comandantes" are hundreds because every cell has one neighborhood comandante all the way to zones, to citys aka plazas, to regions last states.

That's why there's so many Z leaders some looking like el matapedos.

Anyways I'm out
