At least 11 inmates linked to Los Zetas escape through tunnel in Zacatecas prison

At least eleven inmates escaped through a tunnel from a prison in Cieneguillas, Zacatecas. According to authorities, they were considered "highly-dangerous" and were linked to Los Talibanes and the Northeast Cartel (CDN) factions of Los Zetas.

The tunnel in question is 50 meters (164 feet) long. The inmates escaped through the tunnel and were picked up by an individuals in three gateway vehicles just outside the penitentiary. Several guards were in the prison's watch tower and noticed when the inmates were escaping.

To prevent the getaway vehicles from getting closer, they fired several rounds to "alert" him to get away. But this action was fruitless since the inmates quickly made their way to the vehicles and fled the premises.

The Zacatecas State Police was able to arrest one person who helped them get away in one of the vehicles. However, the inmates were able to avoid arrest by changing vehicles before this person was captured. In addition to the prison guards, state authorities are also investigating the possible involvement of the state police in this scheme. At least one state police officer is detained for questioning.

Officials stated that the tunnel took between five to six months to build. They stated that those who masterminded the operation took advantage of the construction projects that were ongoing inside the penitentiary to hide the digging they were doing. "The tunnel is of high complexity. It is a multi-way tunnel and it took some time to build", one official said. Interestingly, the tunnel was made through the newest building in the prison.

    3. If by superior you mean, a Narco that suffers a violent dead at a young age, picture showing them splatter on a road, seating dead on a truck, torture to death or always running from authorities, maybe their relatives killed by their enemies, or in prison for life, no money to show or to enjoy. Yea they are superior, all narcos are superior then. Ignorance is killing us

    3. Cdn is the zeta faction that is controlled by the trevino family whom were not real zetas but thru betrayal rose in the zetas cartel. And chivis theyre are morw than a street dealing organization. They do smuggle some drugs thru the nuevo laredo territory a very good territory to have. Lots of weed and some coke and meth. That makes them a cartel. Even if its a small one. And they are extremely violent.

    1. There are many countries were this is legal as well. But you have to pay for the damage and any crimes you commit while on the run. Its not that bad.

    2. during chapo trial i mentioned this to one of his attys. they used it when doing cross on a gov witness. can't recall who it was, maybe vz but whoever it was challenged the atty saying he was wrong...that it is illegal in mexico.

      dummie

      mexico thought behind the law is that to imprisoned a human is against human nature therefore if there is an escape or attempt the person should not be held legally liable. the caveat is if someone was hurt in the process.

      a couple of other countries also hold this legal stance. sweden of course...and germany, austria and the netherlands

    3. 2:38 IDK about other nations but in Mexico if there is a crime committed or anyone hurt then all bets off and you are charged with escaping to commit criminality

      crazy

  6. LOL the corruption is so laughable. Even prosecutors are in on the cash deals. Time to just wipe out the cartels and ‘liquidate’ all prisons in Mexico. Try to get back to a starting point. These fucks have no civil rights after what they have done. Lethal action is needed to arrest or try to arrest them lol.....let them all bleed out.

  9. Original Zetas most ruthless cartel Mexico ever seen. Spanking snitchaloa Cartel so hard they created Carteles Unidos and received assistance from the Mexican and U.S government to fight them and still couldn’t beat the Zetas. Only thing that destroyed the Zetas was the civil war within themselves.

  10. Whats more impressive is that how much this tunnel cost vs how much money chapos tunnel cost. You dont need to pay a million dollars to build a tunnel.
