Mexican Police Chiefs Arrested

EFE, Posted: Jun 02, 2009

MONTERREY, Mexico -- The Mexican army arrested the ministers of public security for the cities Escobedo and Guadeloupe on Tuesday, in the metropolitan area of Monterrey, Mexico, as well as several local police commanders, military sources said. Those arrested joined the 37 officials arrested Monday in greater Monterrey, the capital of the Mexican state Nuevo Leon. They are under investigation for the alleged infiltration of drug cartels into state and local police. In Guadalupe, the military arrested the city's secretary of public security, Jos Santos Almaraz, the city's chief of police, Hctor Gonzlez de la Garza, and police official Jos Guadalupe Alemn. In Escobedo, the military arrested the secretary of public security, Fernando Torre Cuevas, and chief of police, Victor Manuel Silva. The Mexican army also raided police headquarters in Juarez on Tuesday. The army's actions in the area are based on a list of officers who allegedly collaborated with drug cartels, discovered last week after the arrest of several alleged drug traffickers.
