“Polizetas” linked to the death of Moreira are captured
Note: They were called polizetas because they were police officers but worked for the criminal group zetas.
Secretary of Federal Public Safety presented yesterday the alleged kidnappers of Jose Eduardo Moreira Rodriguez, whom were municipal police of Ciudad Acuña and are accused of giving protection to the criminal group Zetas.
“These elements of the Munucipal Police gave protection to the Zetas and among them are identified as “Polizetas” which the leader was Victor Landeros”, Said Luis Cardenas Palomino, director of the Regional Division of the Federal Police, in a press conference in DF.
Victor Landeros Sifuentes, known as “La Iguana”, was arrested along with the now former police Jorge Tenorio Takajasi, “El Taka”.
Both admitted before the SSP of being those who turned over the son of the former governor of Coahuila, Humberto Moreira, to three unknown people on October 3rd.
“Victor Landeros Sifuentes refers that on the day of the events, he sustained communication with Rodolfo Castillo Montes, sub director of operations of the Municipal Police in Ciudad Acuña and direct boss of the people involved, which held direct communication with the victim to meet in a convenience store”, pointed out Cardenas Palomino.

He added that Moreira Rodriguez was given to Carlos Arnulfo Flores, aka “El Flaco”, alleged chief of plaza of the zetas, and to his subordinate, Ruben Sifuentes Cadena, aka “El Shaggy”.
Landeros had been signaled by the Attorney office of Coahuila as one of the alleged intellectual authors of the homicide of the son of the former governor and former leader of PRI Humberto Moreira.

According to Cardenas Palomino, one of the strongest line of investigation about the cause of the kidnapping and execution of Eduardo Moreira is focused in the vengeance “for the actions of the Government of the state against that organization.
Along with the alleged kidnappers, it was presented Roberto Clemente BArcenas Cepeda, of 30 years old, who presumably lend his house to the “polizetas” with the purpose of protecting them from the authorities.
