they used fake ID’s. Border Patrol agent down. Trio Busted Buying Guns For Drug Cartel: ATF Friday, March 18, 2011 In my opinion: Fort Worth, Texas -- Ruben Ramirez, Romeo Ramirez and Ernesto Manzanarez are illegal aliens from Mexico. They were arrested and charged with being aliens unlawfully in possession of firearms. They used fake ID’s to buy 4 semi-automatic rifles that cost around 3 grand from a gun store. After the arrests the rifles were obtained by the police. The authorities also confiscated about 5 grand found in their car and about 2 grand on Ernesto Manzanarez’s person. Mr. Manzanarez told investigators that the notorious Zeta Drug Cartel gave him $10,000.00 cash to buy guns for the cartels use in Mexico. Luckily the Manager of the gun shop called the Feds and reported them. When they came to pick up the guns the feds followed the illegal aliens and arrested them. “The Zeta Drug Cartel was founded by former Special Forces soldiers in the Mexican Army, the Zetas are one of Mexico’s most violent drug cartels. Once the enforcers for the notorious Gulf Cartel, the Zetas branched out last year and formed their own drug-trafficking organization, according to American drug agents.” The Zeta Drug Cartel killed U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Special Agent Jaime Zapata, and wounded U.S. Agent Victor Avila in Mexico on February 15, 2011. LINK The weapon that murdered Agent Zapata was sold in Texas and was smuggled into Mexico. The Feds offered a $5 Million Dollar Reward for any information leading to the arrest of the people responsible. So, far they have arrested 3 men who bought and smuggled the weapons into Mexico that killed the Border Patrol agent and wounded the other. The Mexican government has put up a Reward of 10 million pesos for any information about the ambush and murder. The two agents were believe to have been targeted as they were driving in a Chevy SUV. “Mexico's drug cartels frequently set up roadblocks and ambushes to steal large SUVs and pickups.” It’s said that Agent Zapata and Agent Avila were deliberately attacked in an attempted assassin by the Zeta drug cartel. “Dallas is believed to be a “command and control” center, a hub where the Zetas and another cartel known as “La Familia” coordinate drug shipments throughout the United States, according to drug agents.” SOURCE: Trio Busted Buying Guns For Drug Cartel: ATF $3,000 in semi-automatic rifles were destined for the Zetas, federal agents say http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Three-Men-Busted-Buying-Guns-For-Drug-Cartel-ATF-118246884.html $5 Million Bounty Offered for ICE Agent Killers http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/5-Million-Bounty-Offered-for-ICE-Agent-Killers-118937319.html .
