Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico - On Wednesday, the Mexican Secretary of National Defense (Sedena) reported that the military arrested four alleged Zeta members including two that were implicated in the August 25, Casino Royale massacre. The two suspects were identified as Ameríco Orlando Soto Reyes, aka, "El Junior or El Bam Bam" and Saúl Becerra Reyes, aka, "El Pelon or El Chueco," both served as lookouts during the Casino Royale attack by Zetas that claimed 52 lives in a deadly blaze. Two other alleged Zetas were also arrested along with the suspects, but are considered minors.
The military confiscated a high power rifle, one magazine, eight bullets, 500 small packages of marijuana and a vehicle equip with radio communications system, according to Sedena.
So far, 17 Zeta suspects have been arrested in the Casino Royale massacre and are awaiting prosecution for multiple crimes, including homicide charges.
The Zetas set the Casino Royale on fire because the owner failed to pay $10,000 U.S. per week to the criminal organization. A member of the Zetas poured several gallons of gas in the entrance of the casino and set it on fire trapping patrons inside. Most of the exits were illegally locked or chained with locks and the casino patrons couldn't escape.
