Templarios boss arrested in western Mexico

Borderland Beat posted by Mars220 Republished from Latino Fox News

The suspected leader of a gang involved in kidnappings, drug trafficking and extortion rackets was arrested by the Federal Police in western Mexico, the Government Secretariat said.

Marco Antonio Esparza Hernandez, also known as Miguel Angel Zapata Moreno, was arrested in Morelia, the capital of Michoacan state, the secretariat said in a statement.

The gang boss was living in the Jardines del Toreo district of Morelia.

Officers confirmed the suspect's identity and "established a security perimeter, arresting this person while he was driving a private vehicle without a single shot being fired," the secretariat said.

The suspect had worked as a gunman for Arnoldo Rueda Medina, one of the leaders of the Familia Michoacana drug cartel, and ran a network of informers for the drug trafficker, the secretariat said, citing information gathered by investigators.

Esparza Hernandez reported to Enrique Plancarte Solis, one of the leaders of the Caballeros Templarios drug cartel, who provided him with orders on running extortion rackets, carrying out hits, distributing drugs and stealing fuel in Guanajuato, a state in central Mexico.

The suspect parted ways with Servando Gomez Martinez, the only Caballeros Templarios leader still at large, when the cartel was weakened.

The 41-year-old suspect was carrying two loaded rifles and 500 grams of a substance that appeared to be cocaine at the time of his arrest.
The suspect and the evidence seized in the case were turned over to federal prosecutors.


  1. Hope he rots in jail. Thank you DD.

  2. No arrest just execute.

    1. Send them to the cia they will torture the shit out of them.

  3. I bet you he will get like 5 years if that....In mexico money talks. Some of the charges won't stick. Trust me....they pull some bull shit...

  4. Michoacan cleaning house the rurales/viagras with crooked ass papa pitufo and americano trying to take over the drug and other illegal businesses with help from Castillo and cjng. Michoacan, Sinaloa, Tamaulipas are all about cartels and is going to stay like that. Too much money their making on illicit business but can't invest in legal business so same game diferent players till the supply in demand stops. Real

  5. Mexico is trying to host the 2026 world cup what do you guys think

    1. They hosted the 2014 world cup in brazil and brazil had a lot of violence but not as bad as mexico or honduras but 2026 is a lot of years from now and things can change

  6. They shouldn't be allowed to host shit

  7. Put a bullet in his skull and charge his family for the bullet and the executioner's labor.

  8. Mexico is as powerful as a caca de cucaracha in futbol, penanieto is just trying to distract from other problems with this fucking bullshit, as far as i am concerned, they can go and stick the whole futbol ball up the ass of their putas madres que los parieron.
    The fabrication of presumed guilty parties cntiues, and even if they are really guilty, nobody is asking the government to catch any sicario narco-drug trafficker...
    What the people want is:
    -- Dr Mireles released...
    -- all the political prisoners released, includingncommunity police and autodefensas...
    -- 43 ayotzinapos the government took away alive, they are wanted back alive...
    -- the guilty parties to be found and prosecuted...
    -Nobody is asking for any more watery atole con el dedo

  9. RIP
    M1, R5 ,El Bravo and MP
    10.4 con los patrones

  10. Penanieto must have ready all the chinese credits for another mansion in heaven, futbol stadiums will cost by then about 26 trillion dollars, and will be aother excuse to park the US navy on the gulf of mexico to protect the amerikkkan tourists, "a la kiev"...
    Mexico can't be just taken, too many infiltrados will be demanding human rights and minimum wages of $8.00 USD an hour, compare that with the weekly 20 to 30 USD lucky mexicans who bust their ass six days a week make now...
    --No no no no, before taking it over, the global conquest of the world must be carried out, then we go back to 'you can have your own country' politics...of i don't think so...
