Police Arrest 21 Members of Criminal Organization in Northeast Mexico

MEXICO CITY Federal and state authorities arrested 21 suspected members of a criminal organization that operated in Valle Hermoso, a city in the northeastern Mexican state of Tamaulipas, the Tamaulipas Coordination Group said.

The arrests were made in response to complaints from citizens about drug dealing, extortion, threats and other crimes being committed in the city, the agency said in a statement.

The Federal Police, army troops, marines, military police and state police participated in the operation, capturing the suspects on the Santa Apolonia-Rio Bravo state highway.

The Gulf and Los Zetas drug cartels have been fighting for control of Tamaulipas and smuggling routes into the United States for years.

The federal government deployed additional security forces units in Tamaulipas last year and purged law enforcement agencies in an effort to stop a wave of drug-related violence in the northeastern state.
