“Sol Prendido” for Borderland Beat 

We are told that authorities are investigating the appearance of narco messages attributed to an organized crime group on Sunday morning in the municipality of Pedro Escobedo. There are at least two banners which contain a message warning against detractors or “traitors” of the criminal group. 

We are told that these banners appeared very early in the morning in the town of San Fandila and that it was the municipal police of Pedro Escobedo themselves who became aware of the facts. However, at the time of going to press there had been no statement from the state authorities, nor from the Attorney General’s Office, Citizen Security or the governor’s office.

Narco messages read as follows:

The purge begins against traitorous government personnel and scumbags. The state of Querétaro belongs to Mr. Mencho. 

Sincerely, Commander Castro
