MONTERREY, NUEVO LEÓN
A nine year state police officer has been arrested for his involvement in the attack on the Casino Royale, in which over 60 people died.
A federal employee with the Federal Electricity Commission was shot and killed Friday morning.
It was a bloody Thursday in Torreon, with a total of eleven killed. In two separate incidents, burning vehicles led to the discovery of the homicides. More than one was beheaded and either left in the street or in one of the cars.
Two bodies were found in a vehicle along the highway to Monterrey. One was Eloy García Lerma, an active agent of the Bureau of the Ministerial Police. The other man was Samuel Flores Borrego, better known as El Metro Three and / or M3, in charge of Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas for the Gulf Cartel. He was also a police agent some years ago, and the partner of Eloy, and they had remained friends.
At about 4 pm Friday afternoon, a man was hung from a bridge in plain view of dozens of witnesses. He had been tortured and shot multiple times. A narco message was left with a warning to women and taxi driver ‘hawks’, which are cartel lookouts.
The state police announced in a press conference that 31 Zetas had been arrested. Of the 31 arrested, 14 were police officers for various municipal departments throughout the state. The officers admitted to being paid 8,000 pesos a month (about US$641) to provide protection.
On Saturday, several gunmen came to a well known fish market near the port, entered and opened fire on customers and merchants like. Two men and a woman were killed, and three were injured, one a 14 year girl.
Gunmen were in the process of cutting the head off a man when he jumped up and ran outside. One of the gunmen shot and killed him, and then they all fled. Inside the house, police found pools of blood, torture utensils and the tool with which they tried to saw off his head. A vehicle at the scene was also seized.
On Friday, three banners were hung around the city. They appeared to be from citizens and asked President Calderon for help to end the “wave of violence that is sweeping our beautiful harbor and the nightlife of it, upon which the livelihoods of thousands of families” depends. It was signed by Acapulco United Families.
