Beltran Leyva Gang: Vital Gang Member Arrested in Mexico

The drug barons behind the Beltran Leyva gang have been under pressure of late due to crackdowns by the Mexican government. The deputy leader of the treacherous and violent cartel was arrested recently. Arnoldo Villa Sanchez was nabbed in a top secret operation. He had weapons and drugs on him at the moment of being apprehended by the police.

In a news conference Wednesday, National Security Commissioner Monte Alejandro Rubido Garcia said, "Villa Sanchez, 40, was arrested after an investigation revealed that he would be visiting Mexico City during Holy Week." Rubido also said, "the suspected capo and a bodyguard resisted arrest when confronted by security personnel in the capital’s trendy Condesa neighborhood, but were taken into custody without shots being fired."

Meanwhile, Uriel Chavez Mendoza, who is an influential mayor, has also been held under surveillance by the authorities due to certain suspicions. The narcotics business is a dirty world of brutal violence and naked aggression. 

Many bodies of men riddled with bullets were found recently by the law agencies. It was the work of none other than the Beltran Leyva gang. It has literally acquired a reputation for savage and predatory behavior. Arnoldo Villa Sanchez is a middle aged drug lord whose visit to Mexico City during a holiday led to his arrest. 

Beltran Leyva gang arrested member had his bodyguards along with him and the man tried to escape from the long arm of the law by every means possible. But it was all to no avail and he was finally taken into custody after some struggle. 

It was a good thing though that no gunplay took place during the arrest. The gang has had many top-ranking members arrested or shot dead by the authorities. However, despite these setbacks the gang is tenacious and likely to return to the scene. 

The previous government leaders had boasted of being tough on criminal gangs. But in fact these dubious groups had only split up into several fractals. The present leadership has carried on that policy and is after the gangs with guns and rifles. But the problem shows no signs of abatement. 

Drug-related violence has hit the nation that gave us the Taco and Tortilla in a bad way. The arrest of this drug kingpin who operated from the premises of luxury hotels comes as somewhat of a relief though.
