TIJUANA — The Mexican military Friday announced the capture in Ensenada of a suspected drug trafficker who confessed to having dissolved the bodies of 300 victims in acid.(UNION TRIBUNE)
Santiago Meza López, 45, was among three men and a girl detained by members of the First Amphibious Group Special Forces Unit and the Federal Police near the toll road between Ensenada and Rosarito Beach.
In a brief interview with reporters in Ensenada, Meza said he was a former construction worker who worked for a drug trafficker named Eduardo Teodoro García Simental, who is known as El Teo. Law enforcement authorities say García is a one-time member of the Arellano Félix cartel who broke off from the organization this year and is believed to be behind much of the brutality in recent months as drug gangs fight over territory.
Meza said the victims were already dead by the time he received them and that he didn't know their identities. He said it took about 24 hours to dissolve them in barrels filled with acid. A military communique described the victims as García's enemies and debtors.
Dedicated to classics and hits.

The rich n' powerful of the LA hills have been plagued by some big ticket res burgs in the last several years. The police finally arrested someone in the case- an alleged "ring leader" no less. Press conference to follow:
Police in Los Angeles have arrested a man they suspect of leading a crew of burglars who stole more than $10 million in cash and property from the empty homes of wealthy Southern Californians.(AP)
Police said Tuesday that they have arrested 45-year-old Troy Corsby Thomas, one of two suspected leaders of a group authorities dubbed the "Hillside Bandits."
Corsby is being held on $2 million bail after pleading not guilty to two charges of residential burglary in a brief court appearance Tuesday.
I'm interested to see how the cops got to Thomas- buy my money is on "snitch."
