Mario Alberto Garcia-Balderas was sentenced to 10 years in prison for possession and sale of illegal arms


Texas: A Mexican citizen, who according to authorities sold grenades to Federal Agents who were undercover in South Texas, was sentenced today to 10 years in prison for crimes of possession of fire arms and explosives according to the Prosecutor.

Mario Alberto Garcia-Balderas, 45 years of age, had been deported two times previously from the United States but he later returned and he awaits deportation again after he has finished his sentence in an American prison, informed the Prosecutor of McAllen in a communication.

In February, members of the jury found Garcia-Balderas guilty for being an illegal foreigner in the United States in possession of fire arms and 9 improvised devices typically grenades.




The Judge of McAllen district of Texas, Ricardo Hinojosa sentenced Garcia-Balderas to the maximum sentence of 10 years in prison for his crimes.

Hinojosa also sentenced Garcia-Balderas to 8 years in prison, of which 30 months will be completed consecutively after the charge of fire arms, in a separate case in which he plead guilty to entering the country illegally after being deported.

"Today's sentence sends a clear message to those individuals that buy, transport, or facilitate arms, munitions and other related articles", said James Spero, Special Agent in charge of investigations of National Security.

The Prosecutors said that the investigation commenced in 2009 after the Agents received information about a person selling grenades.

Witnesses testified that Garcia-Balderas gave improvised explosive devices to undercover Agents on three occasions in September of 2009 for which he received a total of $25,000.

    3. I don't think the value of the explosives is why he received a 10 year sentence.

    4. Fire arms are ok, even promoted, legal, protected...
      --explosives, IED's, posession, asking for them or about them, missiles, bombs, posession of instructions are all forbidden...
      --but I saw Netanyahoo showing explicit diagrams of an Irani atomic bomb on session with the US Congress, readily armed, ready to explode...no problemo...

    2. Why follow the rules when you can make them up as you go.

      I hope MORE firearms go down south to kill off all the Zetas.

    3. I think the madrinas of the zetas who also benefit from their crimes and all they do is take their mordidas are the politicians...
      --the politicians are also more visible, they are guiltier of the crimes for allowing and enabling criminals, they should be the first to fall...

  5. As much as we put down narcotraffickers, arms dealers are far worse and contribute more directly to the violence in Mexico. If the narcos didn't have guns, how could they continue operating in the same manner?

    1. Definatly Not. Those weapons is what protect them from other opponents, and at the same time helps them make the rules.. Reason why the stupid governments can't control them in many places. Without weapons they would not stand a chance...

      --no real damage caused, just some low level chicharronero down for ten years...see, game?

    3. The problem is the Government has the guns and they would make sure many of the Narco groups would not be short of weapons. That is how many of the people in government make their money. It is very evident. So if you can also take out the corrupt government that would also be a plus.

      Delete
    4. Criminal groups from both sides those with suits in gov offices. and those from the streets go hand to hand, they can not just take out one side and leave the other side "replacing", it has to be both sides at the same time thats how you take down those big ugly monsters. But they don't do it like that... they eliminate one side and leave the other one alive. Just replacing the animals with others.. mx government (Mafias) at its best.

      MX IS AN INTERNATIONAL PROBLEM. How the hell do criminal groups get all those weapons?? All the rifles, grenades, rpg's all of that? By corrupting government agencies like millitary bases for example? thats one... National & International. LatAm & others alike.

    5. The NRA is an international problem...
      --the US is THE INTERNATIONAL PROBLEM, the US "forces of dark" are always creating problems around the world to make benefit, trafficking weapons, oil, war persons and drugs is their most favored source of money, all duty free non tax paying, except for a kick back here or there...

  10. I get the committed a crime but I'm just thinking to my self..... they can find Osama hundreds of miles away but they can not stop the sale of explosives or know how they even were able to obtain them to get put on the black market just puzzles me why not just stop it from the source I'm sure the guy didn't bring them in from Mexico to sell in the USA. What I do not understand is how the great American people do not see how crooked this country is to begin with just like every other country is and complain about mexicans being here mexico has never bombed or flew planes into buildings in the USA. Just saying it's annoying reading dumb comments about mexicans being garbage the whole DEA was built as a way to make money for the government if all they got was drugs from Mexico and no assets like homes, cars, boats etc. Etc. Or money in cash they would have stopped and shut that down ASAP

    1. In case you forgot how things are. The US has hundreds of thousands of soldiers some of them are retired, some of them are still serving the country supposedly. What makes you think that X.00% of them are not bad apples, that aren't in it just to benefit from their "service", oh and many of them have that blood... Know what I mean?? ... Same thing with that waste they call DEA. And other agencies. No country is perfect, much less if it has certain types of humans in it. Go back to school ms./mr. donkey.

      Delete
    2. The DEA can do as they please, except do not steal their drugs or arrest el chapo, because the CIA will order somebody to murder the DEA agents and teach them a lesson or two and repeat the dose once in a while...
      --CIA bosses are in control 100% all the time...they make sure it is 90% profit margin for their buddies and handlers...pablo escobar and el "señor de los suelos" know what are the consequences for crossing the CIA...
