Federal Police arrested five alleged members of the criminal organization Guerreros Unidos in the state of Morelos. The five were involved with the disappearance of the 43 normalistas in Ayotzinapa last September.
Among the detainees was Luis Adrián La Wicha Vega Rueda, who has a long criminal record as a hit man, kidnapper, and narcomenudista. He also worked for the criminal cell headed by Irving “El Harry” Hernández González.
According to federal authorities, the detainees were carrying weapons, drugs, masks, gloves, and clear plastic bags with marijuana.
The arrest took place at kilometer 118+000 of the Cuernavaca-Chilpancingo highway at the intersection of the Puente de Ixtla-Iguala highway.
The alleged gunmen were traveling in a Honda Accord with Guerrero plates.
