Cartel Double Homicide (AFN Tijuana, 11/12/12)
TIJUANA, BC - The recent execution of two brothers, which occurred in Tijuana, could have been due to a relationship with the so-called "Sinaloa Cartel". Apparently, problems arose between the cartel and one of them, identified as Antonio Galeana Tostado.
Abel Gallardo Galvan, Assistant Attorney against organized crime of the Attorney General of Justice in the State (PGJE), reported on the case, which was first received as a report of illegal deprivation of freedom against Aldo of the same surname, but found the murders were due to problems his brother had with drugs.
Antonio, according to the Attorney General, was engaged in crossing the border in vehicles with drugs hidden in double bottoms, however the latter was seized by U.S. authorities, which angered criminals who tried to recover what was lost, but finding no recourse, executed them.
The State official revealed that Antonio was cooperating, so the line of investigation is focused on that fact. The mother also knew of the "occupation" of her son and the Attorney General said there is a pattern of cover-up in their relationship as she herself said he gave her $20,000 - 30,000 a week.
The murder of the two took place on the 4th of this month at km 159 on the Tijuana-Tecate free road near a maquiladora in the La Presa area, between at 4a.m and 1p.m., a few meters from one another. http://www.afntijuana.info/seguridad/14104_cartel_responsable_de_doble_homicidio
