Arrested Mexican man confessed to have "dissolved" 300 bodies
Tijuana police arrested Santiago Meza López who was one of the 20 most wanted criminals in the FBI list.
He says " I didn't feel anything" I just disposed of the bodies dipping them in acid". " Hacerlos pozole" which the expression used among them to refer to the procedure. Pozole is a traditional Mexican stew, therefore he was known as "Teo's stew maker" " El pozolero de Teo".
Teodoro Garcia Simental is battling to control over Tijuana routes after defecting from the Arellano Felix cartel.
ENSENADA — Gunmen fired more than 200 rounds at a police station early Monday morning, but no one was injured, according to the Baja California Attorney General's Office.
The attack took place just after 3 a.m. at the La Misión station and left bullet holes in the walls and damaged five patrol cars, according to the Attorney General's Office.
Nearby, authorities found three assault rifles and bullets inside a Chevrolet SUV and a pickup, both of which were reported stolen from California.
Authorities do not have a motive, but they believe it may have been in retaliation for the arrest of Santiago Meza López, 45, who confessed to dissolving more than 300 bodies for a drug cartel, according to the Mexican federal Attorney General's Office.
