The Mexican Army reported the seizure of multiple weapons and tactical equipment Friday night in the municipality of Cuernavaca, Morelos. The city is located south of Mexico City and is considered a stronghold of the Cartel del Pacifico Sur, a small but powerful criminal group composed of the remnants of the Beltran Leyva Organization and led by Hector Beltran Leyva "El H".
According to military authorities 19 mostly assault type weapons, 8 pistols, 153 magazines, approximately 4,000 rounds of ammunition, tactical harnesses, 1 kilogram of heroin and what appears to be a set of U.S. camouflage fatigues with U.S. hook and loop patches were discovered by soldiers inside an abandoned stolen vehicle that was located with information from an anonymous tip.
No arrests directed linked to the weapons were reported.
