Mexican Marines rescue 12, bust 10 in Nuevo Laredo

A Mexican Naval Infantry unit raided a location in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas Monday rescuing 12 unidentified individuals and detaining 10 others, according to a news release by the Mexican Secretaria  de Marina (SEMAR) or Mexican Navy posted on the official website.

The marine unit had been dispatched to the location based on an anonymous complaint, had been patrolling the general area and found a residence where 11 men and one women were being held hostage.  The victims has been kidnapped from various areas in Nuevo Laredo.

The 10 detainees are reportedly members of the Gulf Cartel criminal group.



At the location marines also seized a large cache of munitions including  two grenade launchers, 17 AK-47 rifles, one machine gun, six handguns, five explosive charges, 18 40mm grenades, 25 hand grenades, 241 weapons magazines, 16,500 rounds of ammunition, two vehicles and communications gear.

Nuevo Laredo is in the grip of a bloody battle between the Gulf Cartel and Sinaloa alliance, and Los Zetas.  Nuevo Laredo is considered to be Los Zetas' home territory, but their rivals have been conducting a competition which include kidnapping innocent victims, butchering them and displaying them as rival gang members.

Look at those bastards with their heads up with so much pride. Pathetic they think that any one looks up to them. Have fun getting killed in the pen. Death is coming one way or the other.

@ 10:09. Hey, pendejo. Nuevo Laredo is in Tamaulipas. Stop licking CDG nuts. How do you know they were Zetas? I don't see you risking your life. Congrats to the marines for a job well done.

Finally we are seeing information about how CDS and CDG operate kidnapping innocent people and killing them as if they are rivals. Chapo did this for years and the blame always fell on CDJ. It use to amaze me how naive all the Chapo nut huggers were to this thinking that he was such a cool good guy that was so powerful and was getting rid of the bad guys. You don't hear them chirping as much anymore.

So, lets think about this a minute. These 12 CDG were in Nuevo Laredo to kidnap innocent people, kill them, and say they were Zetas. The military rescues them from the brink of death. Why? And who is really the bad guys?

Lol, if they were Zetas, would the military intervene? Who is really the worst? Is it the ones that say they are good guys yet slaughter innocent people mercilessly over and over and blame it on others? Or is the poor ones that are trying to survive and climb the ladder? Or the military that whores itself out to the highest bidder? The answer, President Calderon.

if cdg gets innocent people and kills them saying they are supposedly zetas that is an act of desperation. The zetas aren't losing foot soldiers. The cdg are a bunch of scumbags as well they kept bragging that zetas kill innocents and they dont. Well look at them now they are hypocrite assholes.

I think you went too far Badanov stating that killed people in Nuevo Laredo are innocent. It's true, there is no evidence that these guy were cartel members, but at the same time no one can say they were complete innocent

Where in the post did it say they were innocents? No one here truly knows whether they were zetas or innocent people.

Hmmm CDG kidnapping residents off the streets of Nuevo Laredo. 3 months ago they would not have come close to doing this. Sounds like CDS and CDG are gaining ground in the 1 city the Zetas have had on lock since they've become public enemy number one.

CDG wouldnt have kidnapped them if there wasnt a reason for it. The captured must have been working with their rivals and they were trying to get intel on them possibly.

Man,i don't know what video you goin on about.
The vid i meant is where they had the kid in the truck,and he is swearing he is not in any crew,and the other kid who got a soccer shirt on.
One of Diablos crew show a little baggy he took from the kid.So i don't know what you mean.No-one talks on the other video i meant,diablos crew are cutting heads off and dismembering,and then they kill one dude with a shot to the head,and behead the fat old taxi driver.We all know about the taxi drivers,yes,but they aint talkin about no hitmen and trucks?No-one talks in that video,except the hitters,and they gonna say any shit,like kidnapping innocent people and sayin they cartel hitters.Man,it is proven that they kidnap anyone.Every cartel kidnaps innocent people.

Why do these guys have their head up like they are untouchable? Is it because they know they'll be out soon anyways??

That depends if it is a .357 mag, a .44 mag I have never seen a .40 Desert Eagle. The .44 mag is the first auto and was built in Israel back in 1979, then came the .45 mag Grizzly. Before that was the .454 mag Lee Jurras that sob packed some punch, and was a six shooter the sob packed an amazing punch and penetration that could go thru a 1/2 in thick steel plate.

Is there a way to tell the difference between the marina & the army? I see the soldados driving around all the time but don't know which is which?

Let me correct my last post. It is the Casull .454 magnum designed by Lee Jurras.

@anon 5:25 am....
As Tyrone said, most times the marines will have uniforms (or their vests) that say MARINA across their chest....

It varies from state to state, but sometimes the marines will have sand/khaki colored or grayish camo and drive similar colored vehicles (when not in seized unmarked ones) while Army uses dark green or light military green camos and same colored vehicles.

Pero los marinos son gachos bro... they always drive in light colored green trucks, o andan en las camionetas blindadas que decomisan... what is kindahh wierd is that they stole my brothers truck at utpa and we saw the soldiers driving it after a shoot out with los zetas back in 2008 .... Pero ahorita los marinos andan en pura dlindada... saludos cabron!
