Federal Police Raid Two Drug Cartel Warehouses

Posted: Updated:

MEXICO CITY_ Mexican federal police say they have seized more than nine tons of marijuana, 370 pounds of crystal meth and a large amount of weapons this week in a northern border city caught in a bloody turf war between two drug cartels.

A citizen's complaint led officers to two underground warehouses near a highway that links Monterrey with Reynosa, a city across the border from McAllen, Texas.

Police found five tons of marijuana and the crystal meth in one warehouse and 20 automatic rifles, thousands of bullets, 10 bulletproof vests, 20 uniforms, radios and tire spikes in the other.

Authorities didn't say where the other four tons of marijuana were found or what drug cartel owned the weapons and drugs.
