Mexico Drug War Corruption: 279 Police Officers Found Linked to Cartels
Justice in Mexico: " From Veracruz to Monterrey, a small corruption investigation has created a domino effect in arrests of police officers with ties to cartel activity. A major police corruption ring was dismantled today after an investigation exposed eighteen municipal police officers were working for the Zeta cartel in the areas of Acultzingo, Huiloapan, Rafael Delgado, Rio Blanco and Mendoza City, Veracruz. During a similar operation, Monterrey also dismissed 261 local police, arresting 66 of them for suspected links to drug gangs."
