A total of four unidentified individuals have been killed in ongoing drug and gang related violence and and around Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, according to Mexican news accounts.

According to separate news accounts on online editions of El Diario de Coahuila and Milenio news dailies, an anti-kidnapping unit of the Nuevo Leon state Agencia Estatal de Investigaciones (AEI) had been conducting searches  since Sunday of the Cadereyta-Jimenez area immediately east of Monterrey based on complaints of kidnappings taking place and reports of armed suspects in the area.

According to the El Diario de Coahuila account, on Monday AEI agents encountered armed suspects travelling aboard a Cadillac Escalade SUV and a Chevrolet Suburban SUV in a break that leads to Los Herreras municipality, where gunfire was exchanged and two armed suspects were shot to death. 

Three other armed suspects escaped that encounter with two more dying in a separate gunfight a few minutes later near a winery where four female kidnap victims were found and released.

Among the victims were two minors.  AEI agents also seized an undisclosed number of weapons.

A separate counternarcotics operations took place along Mexico Federal Highway 40D in China municipality Monday where Policia Federal (PF) agents seized a quantity of marijuana, according to a news account on Milenio.

The PF unit had set up a checkpoint and stopped a Ford box van type truck.  Police agents discovered a false bottom in the truck where 93 packages of marijuana were hidden.  The total seizure was 735 kilograms.

The driver identified as David Aquino Rosas was detained at the scene. The truck was bound for Reynosa in Tamaulipas.

Buen trabaja AEI. Que sigan las aprehensiónes de estos delinquentes secuestradores asesinos para que regrese la paz a la Sultana del Norte. La única guerras que los gustan son las del los rayados y tigres y la aficion brava de ambos equipios. Y que viva los rayados Vamos hacer campeones otra vez America la liguilla es de los rayados Al 100% y que viva Monterrey.

If CDG are rumoured to be in charge of Monterrey now, what's the deal with the penal de topo chico? Will CDG eventually take over the prison?

I went to Monterrey these past week to renew my work visa. We drove back on Monday.I had to takke my wife and kids as they have to get their visas renewed. It was very uncomfortable to drive down there. we entered in miguel aleman and the town was very lonely. Cuidad mier was like a ghost town and same for general trevino...drove in cerralvo and alot of suspicious people standing around in the streets I think they were halcones. Same for dr gonzalez.

In Apodaca and the rest of
monterrey is active. People going on about their business but you see the same activity of people up to no good. I cant believe how this has come to these standards. I drove the autopista on my way back in it was scary we had to cars tailgate us in different occassions. I would highly suggestvto not go unless you have to go.

Thanks for the update dude,it helps to hear from people who are on the ground.A lot of the time people just want to talk shit to each other instead of being grown up.Be safe bro,you and yours.

Why would you travel through Miguel Aleman? Laredo is much safer plus you have the Toll Road. MA is totally off limits have you not seen the reports about Mier?

Monterrey is divided no one is in charged in that State.Part of Guadalupe is Z and the other part is CDG same goes for Monterrey city.San Nicolas it's CDG turf.Apodaca is CDG too all the way to Miguel Aleman, Tamaulipas.Escobedo is Z an all the little ranches going to Nuevo Laredo,Tamaulipas.
