A local Los Zetas security chief was detained Wednesday by a Mexican Naval Infantry detail in Xalapa, Veracruz, according to a news release posted on the website of the Secretaria de Marina (SEMAR), the controlling agency for the Mexican Navy.



The unit was dispatched to a location in Animas colony based on an anonymous complaint of shots fired.  The suspect, identified as Luis Alberto Perez Casanova AKA Casanova, was aboard a sedan, and attempted to flee the area as soon as he observed the marine unit.  The road unit blocked his attempt to flee, then detained him.

Marines seized one rifle, three handguns, 15 weapons magazines, 242 rounds of ammunition, two fragmentation grenades, 16 kilograms of marijuana, a quantity of cocaine divided for retail sale, communications equipment, the sedan, and miscellaneous contraband.

Perez Casanova is said to be the security chief for the central region of Veracruz, specifically in Xalapa.

Im just throwin this out there but I think the mexican army n police have a bunch of confiscated guns and dope enough so they can catch a dumb bandido like this guy and set him up in front of tha cameras with all that shit to sell a good bust. I hope they really did get all that shit off this guy but it trips me out when they present these dudes like its tha first round of tha NFL draft

Argentina consumes more coke than the usa. And go to any cantina in mexico or the usa and coke is everywhere so stop acting like Americans are the only ones that consume drugs. Drugs are used world wide, but not everyone acts like savages
