(Kidnap victims rescued)….Seven were rescued in Mexicali.
150 others were rescued across the border from McAllan, Texas. In Mexicali, police arrested four suspects after they found one suspect brandishing a firearm. Later, a patrol officer heard cries for help coming from a house. He investigated and found two men tied up and beaten. That led to the discovery of five more victims being held elsewhere. Police say the victims were attempting to cross into the United States illegally when they were kidnapped and held for ransom. The suspects are reportedly members of a drug cartel, conducting the kidnappings, as well. The Mexican Army freed 150 from a two-story house along the Texas/Mexico border. The Mexican Government says the Zeta Cartel is involved in those kidnappings.
