REYNOSA, Tamaulipas — Gulf Cartel gunmen stormed the headquarters of Mexico’s Attorney General’s Office in this border city knocking down the front gate and shooting up the building before making their getaway.
The attack took place Monday early morning when various gunmen in two SUV’s rammed the door of the building and then fired their weapons. No one was injured, information provided to Breitbart Texas by Mexico’s Attorney General’s Office revealed.
The brazenness of the attack led the public in this city to initially believe that it may have been a rescue attempt. As reported by Breitbart Texas several times this year, cartel gunmen have caused chaos in order to carry out rescue attempts whenever their leaders are captured.

Two alleged gun-runners were arrested in Spain on charges of buying military-grade weapons for drug cartels in Mexico. The controversy over how high-powered weapons get into the hands of Mexican drug cartels has been raging for years. US suppliers are often in the cross-hairs, so the recent arrest of individuals buying military-grade weapons for the cartels in Spain put a twist on perceptions of weapons trafficking to Mexico.
According to Fox News Latino, two gun runners in Barcelona were allegedly selling, among other things, anti-tank rocket launchers, grenade launchers and sniper and assault rifles that drug smugglers could use to protect drug shipments from Mexico to the US. A police statement indicated the investigation began when police uncovered evidence of money laundering and drug trafficking.
More disturbing is the fact one of the individuals allegedly selling the weapons is a 40 year-old man from Iran. The other suspect is a 44 year-old Swiss national, and the two were arrested in November after a surveillance operation gathered evidence of meetings with buyers in a hotel. Authorities were able to seize detailed notes of the weapons being ordered. The police statement made on December 13 also indicated the investigation was conducted in collaboration with the US Drug Enforcement Administration.
