A criminal judge of Piedras Negras issued formal arrest of the former mayor of Allende, Sergio Alonso Rodriguez Lozano, for crimes committed in the Los Zetas slaughter that occurred in that municipality, in March 2011.
The former mayor of Allende, Coahuila, is charged with aggravated kidnapping and complicity in the massive disappearance of inhabitants of the municipality.
He is also charged with having knowledge of the crimes that "Los Zetas" were going to commit in later days, as he and another official attended a meeting with the group and agreed not to intervene to facilitate their actions.
He was arrested last Thursday November 17, in Piedras Negras.
According to the Attorney General were 28 people killed during the slaughter, although eyewitnesses who have filed lawsuits in the United States, claim they were about 300 people from different families, men, women and children, who were kidnapped and killed.
To date 15 people have been detained for these crimes resulting in nine arrest warrants and two convictions with sentences of 75 and 80 years.
