El Imparcial (Hermosillo, Sonora) 3/31/09
A dozen aspiring illegal entrants from the state of Tlaxcala with hopes of being transported to Sacramento, CA, to work on a chicken farm were abandoned by their smuggler in a hotel in Hermosillo after paying him 3,765 pesos each [about $265 US]. The smuggler inadvertently left his voting credential behind, which identifies him. The police are now seeking Ricardo Lujan Aguirre.

El Diario en Linea (Chihuahua) 3/31/09
A gun fight between police and narcos took place in Chihuahua City and resulted in the arrest of three of the criminals. The circumstances were nearly the same as the story above from Tijuana, except these three had an AK-47 assault rifle.
An armed group gunned down two men in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, after chasing them. The attack happened in mid-afternoon. Witnesses said the two were taken at gunpoint and made to put their hands on their heads. When they submitted, the armed group executed them with coup de grace shots to the head, and then drove away.
