This last week, members of the Federal forces, supported by members of the Ministerial Police, conducted a major operation in Monterrey International Airport, where they managed to capture a leader of the Gulf Cartel.

The boss was identified as Osiel Azael Gonzalez Salas, who was accompanied by 11 offenders of his criminal drug cartel.  They arrived at the airport, returning from the beaches of Cancun, where they had enjoyed the Easter holidays and were taken into custody.

But Salas Gonzalez and the other criminals did not travel alone, as they had brought their family to enjoy Cancun as well. Authorities said that besides the 12 members of the CDG, together they traveled with more than 80 people.

The traffickers had bought tickets on two commercial flights,  had organized a dream vacation, not knowing that would be the last because upon his arrival in Nuevo Leon they would all be taken into custody.

It was noted that Salas is related at least 17 executions and more than 20 kidnappings in which they ransomed large amounts of money to free the kidnapped millionaire businessmen.
