Binational crime-stoppers program expands in Texas and Coahuila after successful launch

After a successful early run in West Texas and the Rio Grande Valley, a binational crime-stoppers program is expanding. The “Se Busca Informacion” (Information Wanted) initiative is being rolled out this week in the Border Patrol’s Del Rio Sector and in the Mexican state of Coahuila. The program employs telephone tips line based on the U.S. side, posters and billboards at ports of entry and in Mexico.

The posters feature some jovial, smiling faces that law-enforcement officials say may hide heinous crimes. “Many of the targets that we seek may have an association with several cartels — Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG), Northeast Cartel (CDN) and Zetas Vieja Escuela,” said Martin R. Clark, acting deputy chief patrol agent in the Del Rio Sector.

Other quarries include people wanted for intoxicated manslaughter, the smuggling of cocaine, meth, and marijuana, and aggravated assault. Criminals for more than a century have tried to escape justice by crossing the Mexican border.

The “Se Busca” program aims to end that and has already led to the capture of several fugitives in Mexico. All of them were either murderers or drug traffickers. “I think this program has the potential to allay some of the fears that the community has. We all know the monstrosity that some of these cartels create,” Clark said. “Reporters, politicians, regular citizens are fearful. Anybody can be a victim and the stronger these cartels get, the worse it is for all of us who live (here).”
Three El Paso suspects were arrested with the cooperation of Chihuahua state officials
U.S. and Tamaulipas state officials rolled out the program last October in the Rio Grande Valley. One target was quickly apprehended, but chaos ensued with days-long gun battles in Nuevo Laredo, travel warnings for American citizens, and constant ambushes against Tamaulipas state police units. And while some Mexican residents may be afraid to approach their own authorities in the middle of a drug war, the fact that the “Se Busca Informacion” program hotline is based in the United States may give people confidence.

“We discussed the protocol making sure information that comes in from Mexico goes to a U.S. number,” said Gloria I. Chavez, chief agent of the Border Patrol’s El Paso Sector. “The level of confidence and trust is high, the program has been well embraced. I think that’s why it’s been very successful.”

The El Paso tips line has received 108 leads — 62 telephonically and 46 through WhatsApp. As a result, three of the 10 most wanted international criminals in the El Paso Sector are already behind bars. They include Jesus Alfredo Martinez Mendoza, a.k.a. “El Fredy,” who was No. 6 on the list. The Old Guard Barrio Azteca leader was taken by Chihuahua state officials acting on information from the “Se Busca” hotline as he headed to the Rio Grande with a backpack loaded with 11 pounds of heroin he allegedly intended to cross into the U.S. that day.

Other targets captured to date in El Paso include a leader of La Empresa drug gang and a man who was wanted for the murder of two women. “These three targets have been arrested because of the support of our community, because of the confidence of community members on both sides of the border who courageously called the 1-800 number anonymously and provided information,” Chavez said.

Both Border Patrol officials highlighted the cooperation and “enthusiasm” shown by their Mexican counterparts, particularly Chihuahua Gov. Javier Corral and Coahuila Gov. Miguel Riquelme Solis. Jorge Nava, Corral’s deputy attorney general, said Mexican officials are going after high-profile targets because they’re the ones sparking most of the murders on their side of the border.

One target, says Nava, either murdered or ordered the murders of up to 50 people in Juarez, Nava said. “We are going after the biggest generators of violence,” Nava said, adding that the binational program has provided valuable intelligence that has allowed his officers to effect the arrests.

  2. It is a pity that these northern governors want to secede from Mexico and join the US, even as outsiderrs, because the US is "not ready to accept so many mexican voters even as a 1/5th of a person each", they just want to make sure politics of exploitation fraud and debt contract puts money in their pocket...
    --After these successes, activities will intensify and include US military to support these vendepatria sellouts...

  3. Do they plan on releasing the names of the wanted suspects? It would really help to include more than just a numbered photo.

    1. I was thinking the same thing. In fact, I couldn't even find an official website for the "Se Busca Informacion" program. Maybe you or someone else can help us with that. Thanks!

    3. The individual in my picture is actually Oscar Lopez Olivares, former Gulf Cartel boss from the 1980s. The picture was given to me by a family member of his.

      I'm currently writing a book about the early Gulf Cartel and it will include a lot of exclusive info and photos, including this one in full version.

      That being said, Samuel Garcia is related to Gilberto Garcia Mena ("El June"), another Gulf Cartel figure.

  4. They need to implement this on this in California. I think more criminals that have committed crimes in Mexico hide in California. After all, it is a sanctuary state.

    1. 9:27 there are bigger criminals in hiding all over the US, their Sanctuary is wherever they can find it, some even buy 10 million dollar apartments and call them condos, others just "sell them".
      --Can you name some of your favorite illegal mexican criminals hiding in "california"?

  6. In California these criminals really take advantage of our system. Why is it for example; we as legal residents have to go through a more stringent background check then the criminals escaping Mexico? They get to simply change their name, enter the work force, get benefits that we as California residents do not get? All the while escaping whatever crime they committed in Mexico. Let's not forget all the wives and kids they have left behind. Their is no recourse. Not even a suspension of their drivers license for not paying child support.

    We need background checks now!
