3 Fugitives Detained (El Sol de Tijuana, 12/1/12 by Manuel Cordero)

Tijuana, BC - A historical precedent was recorded in the arrest of three suspected criminals of Sinaloense origin who were fugitives from justice, each for committing violent murders on different dates and since then had hid in Tijuana.

The first of the fugitives was identified as Martín Salazar Félix, alias "Guadalupe Gastelum Rios", 44, accused of depriving the lives of brothers Mark Antony and Andrés Vega Lindoro by firearm.

The Office of the Attorney-General reported that according to data provided by their counterparts in Badiraguato, Sinaloa, the double murder was perpetrated in January of last year while the deceased were talking at a family party.

Suddenly, several subjects stormed the place, among those Felix Salazar, wielding high-powered rifles and shouting to those present to get on the floor then proceed to strip them of their wallets and valuables. Then with force they took the brothers to an address in a Ford pickup, owned by Andrés Vega, and without more complete information, killed them with numerous gunshots.

Investigations by the local authorities allowed them to identify Martín Salazar as one of the assassins by a warrant from the first court of criminal of Badiraguato. This subject was apprehended by agents of the State Ministerial police and he was located in the Northern Buenos Aires neighborhood, in the Cerro Colorado delegation.

Another apprehended, Jesús Alberto Velarde Torres, alias "El Moco" and/or "El Oaxaca, 21, faces similar justice for taking the life of Briza Violeta Lopez Toledo, 24, killed by gunshots in the city of Mazatlan, Sinaloa.

In August of last year, he is accused as the criminal who was drinking alcoholic beverages along with another individual, in a home where he arrived with the decedent and two females. Leaving the party "El Moco", his companion and the deceased observed several subjects of a rival gang and therefore began to shoot back at them with a gun, resulting in aggression and inciting a shootout.

In the crossfire, one of the bullets hit Birza Violeta in the head and expired immediately so both initiators of the brawl fled. An arrest warrant was filed for Jesús Alberto Velarde for the commission of the crime of intentional homicide by the fourth Court of criminal of Mazatlán, Sinaloa. He was finally arrested it in the Northern zone.

The remaining fugitive murderer is Francisco Campaña Acosta's, nicknamed "El Chico", 42, who was wanted for the crime he committed against his own brother Lucio, in 2007.

The State unit only indicates that the fratricide was carried out in the municipality of Mazatlán, Sinaloa, where both were vying for a plot in which corn grew. After verbally assaulting the victim, he tried to attack him with a machete, then shot him with a 12-gauge shotgun and since then fled from their place of origin away from the authorities.

In collaboration agreements between agencies of the national territory, the Ministerial police in Tijuana seized him while he was wandering in the Los Olivos neighborhood in the La Mesa delegation.

In all cases the alleged murderers were already transferred to the State of Sinaloa and handed over to judicial authorities to process them for the crime of homicide.
