El Paso: Fingerprints led to the Narco Billboard Suspect

 Hmmmm...I am not sure I am buying the report  of no connection to film makers....but here you go..thanks to the reader sending the heads up....


El Paso Police's Department of Homeland Security Unit arrested the man who allegedly vandalized two billboards last week.

According to EPPD officials, 25-year-old Ryan Edward Jean from Las Vegas (NV), was tracked down via fingerprints left at the scene of the vandalism. When law enforcement ran the fingerprints through the FBI's database, they matched Jean.

Officials say that Jean [in photo below] had flown to El Paso, and had scheduled a flight back to Las Vegas.  They said that the intent of Jean's messages on the billboards was unknown, so EPPD's SWAT Unit, Airport Police and detectives went to the airport and were able to arrest him Sunday afternoon before he left El  Paso.

Detectives then interviewed Jean and found out that there was no connection to Mexican drug cartels or any movie and TV productions. They added that Jean "vandalized the billboards in an effort to make a political statement."

According to police documents obtained Tuesday afternoon, Jean admitted to the crime.

According to complaint affidavits filed by El Paso Police, Jean told investigators he jumped the chain-link fence of E.F. Building Materials INC. on the 9400 block of Gateway East, near Americas in East El Paso, after the business closed on Wednesday. The affidavit said Jean then climbed 10 to 15 feet to access the ladder of the billboard and proceeded to paint the message "plata o plomo" -- which roughly translates into "money or bullets" -- and hang a mannequin from a noose.

The documents said Jean cut a hole in a chain-link fence at L Tune Automotive to get to the second billboard located in Central El Paso at 5220 Gateway East, near Raynolds.

Investigators said Jean's left middle finger print was found on a plastic bag used to line the head of the Eastside mannequin.

NewsChannel 9 has learned Jean has a lengthy criminal history in Las Vegas dating back to 2007, including several traffic offenses, a DUI conviction, and a graffiti conviction from 2010.

Jean was booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility on two counts of Graffiti, two counts of Criminal Trespass and one count of Criminal Mischief. He is being held on a total bond of $21,800.

  7. 5:27 "potencia mundial" my ass, the US is up to its neck in debt, and sinking deeper, borrowing from its enemies to fight their wars for them, charging the american taxpayer for toilet paper like it was made of gold. they catch this guy quick, but they can't ever catch anything BIG, and real corrupt...

  8. So now I need to listen to criminal's political statements? I live right down the street from this. Was he planning on paying back the owner for the fence he ripped up? Someone's got to pay for it. Hero? jajaja no, es inutil.

  9. This guy has been to graffiti expos in cuernavaca and guadalajara.He's very good i've seen his work.

  10. Hmmm... He says its a "Political statement". If so, kudos to him. The American people needs a hard reality check. They need to know about the ongoing war with our neighbor to the south. 200,000 plus dead, extortion and terror in every state of Mexico.

    If this draws attention to the public, then we need more of this kind of guerilla tactics. It's clear the traditional media of newspapers and television has failed. Well, maybe not failed, but is wildly successful in keeping the American people ignorant.

    I wished we could advertise the Borderland Beat blog on large billboards too.

    Peace,

  13. They should make another billboard saying "Dear Mexican police, we used fingerprints to identify one of your guys. You have to do the same before you say 'Ay, no evidencia, we ignore this case of murdered child now' ".

  15. uff! i remember people menacing the mexicanos about coming to chingar en el paso, but i remember the brother of sergio rafael barraza bocanegra, killer of rubi and marisela escobedo threatening doña marisela's son in el paso, and the police "couldn't do anything", the state of chihuahua, could do anything either in spite of his being accused of being the shooter of la señora marisela right outside of the state palace of government in chihuahua...after she persecuted sergio rafael barraza's ZETA ass from cd juarez to fresnillo and rio grande, the zetas were something in chiguauguau back then, with the governor protecting them, from el paso to fresnillo zac. until sergio died on guadalupe zac, where there is a big military army base, but nobody knew there were any "zetas" there...
    --el pasojo chotazzz never pushed anything there, thank you...
    --the mexican police or soldiers just shot to kill el "bambino" in zac. end of story...
    --it's funny how some guys just can't be caught alive...
    --not that i give a rat's ass about el "bambino", but da police makes me wonder...

  20. I knew it, what did I say, a graf artist....wassup jean...

  21. Notice, prints taken off a bag to line the mannequins head, now hows come the police cannot do that type of work to catch purveyors of dismemberment I mean they always leave a sloppy scene

    ReplyDelete
  22. Traffic violations are misdemenors, as is your first two DUI's, graffitti isnt really a huge crime, most of the good work requires a shit ton of skill..

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think you are right... why would he fly in just to do that, most graf artists are broke, paint is exspensive and so are plane tickets just on a jaunt...

    ReplyDelete
  24. This is why cartel statement killings dont happen so much here in the states, evidence is always left somehow and if they are willing to throw this much resources behind catching a graf artist then you could think what they would do for a decap or dismemberment... to fix a fence is no huge deal. It just is like sewing a stitch, a toddler can mend a fence...

  25. china needs a lot of oil and gas, the conquest of ukrainia, mexico, the arab remains of OPEC, the gas of tamaulipas, will go to the master of the paper tiger, who armed with their communist slave labor force is conquering the world for their masters, the global vultures of capitalism, not the US, the US only furnishes the necessary mercenary to back it all up while being taken for a ride...

  27. If we can track down someone playing a prank in the U.S. imagine what would happen if you were a cartel member and we were looking for you.

    You can run but you will never hide in this country. The U.S. will find you one way or the other even if it takes 30 years.

    1. Not if the cartel related guy is here illegally (most likely to happen) because he won't be found in the database

  29. U.s. is the strongest cartel!

  30. That's quite a stretch to pad a "lengthy criminal record" with traffic violations, and then have one graffiti violation that barely qualifies as "criminal" in the first place.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Amazing that in the U.S. - vandalism and hanging mannequins gets this much law enforcement resources. On the other side of the border - the people hanging real humans on billboards are hardly caught.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Good job el paso cops making your city a lot safer one graffiti artist at a time. Getting swat involved when someone spray paints a billboard

    ReplyDelete
  33. Congratulations FBI and El Passo pigs. You just signed a young American's death warrant.

    This political statement should've been left annonymous. These cops are responsible for this guy's head. The cartels won't take kindly to someone bringing international awareness to cartel business. And not one cartel in particular. All of them. This guy could be murdered by anybody.

    I think El Paso police and FBI agents involved should be jailed for exposing this graffiti artist to an ultimately unnecessary fate. Complete ignorance of justice.

  34. Why did he fly from Las Vegas to El Paso to pull this stupid prank? I guess he craves attention.

  35. makes perfect sense to me. I knew it was a street artist from the jump.

  36. Now that this horrible crime has been resolved I urge the auhorities to focus all their efforts on finding that monster who tossed his cigarette stub on my driveway.

  38. ..."the saudis give three billion dallers to lebanon's defense forces"
    the money was promptly sent to france who will supply lebanon with all the weaponry the money can buy, after the customary commissions get paid left and right of course...
    --then the lebanese can carry on with helping bring down the syrian government, for the global vulture capitalists, with saudi arabs money, because president Obama will not send america's children to do the dirty job once again...what the saudis don't see is that they themselves have too many trillions of dollars, and that they are tightening the ropes around their own necks, omar khaddafi only had about 40 billion dollars in the global bankers banks, hillary only needed one billion for her presidential campaign, the global vulture capitalists woll be happy to keep the other 39 billions, the libyan and the syrian people will get nothing back, maybe a loan or two for the concessions to exploit their patrimony, enough to feed their camels...
