BreitbartTexas: SAN JUAN, Texas—Authorities near the Texas border continue to hunt for several Gulf Cartel members believed to have been behind fierce shootouts along a U.S. highway.
Beginning last week and into this weekend San Juan Police along with their federal partners have arrested multiple cartel gunmen and continue tohunt down additional gunmen, said Police Chief Juand Gonzalez in an interview with Breitbart Texas.
The shootout took place on October 9, when a crew of Gulf Cartel gunmen dressed in police tactical gear attempted to steal a drug load that also belonged to the Gulf Cartel, Gonzalez said.
The drug theft resulted in a rolling shootout and as authorities responded to the area, the gunmen fled resulting in a police chase and a large manhunt, court records obtained by Breitbart Texas revealed.
During the pursuit, the gunmen were throwing drug bundles, weapons, and cell phones out of the window before making their way onto a sugar cane field. The manhunt resulted in the capture of one Gulf Cartel gunman identified as Arturo Guadalupe Saldivar Borrego, who at the time was in the country illegally and did not known English. MORE
