NORTHEAST POSTER "DUMPED" CARRIED ON THE BRIDGE 9 TONS OF MOTA and the SOLDIERS TUMBARON ... blatant on this side and some corrupt on the other.
More than 9,000 pounds of marijuana belonging to the Northeastern Cartel, were secured by Mexican military on this border when the operator of a trailer wanted to go through an international bridge to Laredo, Texas.
The drug was loose, that is, nothing was used to hide it, according to state authorities from Tamaulipas to Breitbart Texas.
The drug was distributed in 420 packages of different sizes and were transported in a closed box truck. The unit was registered to a company named "Reséndiz SA de CV".
Mexican soldiers who were on the bridge ordered the driver to stop the unit for a review, but when they opened the trailer box, they were surprised to see the drug exposed. In some of the packages some annotations were appreciated like "K", "F", "J" and an acronym in the form of "popcorn".
It is believed that they could be passwords for those who were going to receive it in the United States.
The drug belongs to the Cartel Del Noreste (CDN), a split between the Los Zetas criminal group and those who are fighting for control of the territory of northern Mexico.
The drug, the driver and the truck were taken before federal and state authorities so that the necessary investigations could be carried out and the corresponding charges presented.
The CDN group that controls Nuevo Laredo and the surrounding regions has received heavy blows from the Navy and the Mexican Army. Since the beginning of the year, Mexican authorities have managed to confiscate from the CDN quantities of drugs and cash as well as weapons, Breitbart Texas reported.
