Emergency Message for U.S. Citizens: Quito (Ecuador), Widespread Forest Fires
The U.S. Embassy in Quito advises U.S. citizens visiting or living in Ecuador that there have been an unusual number of forest and vegetation fires throughout the country this season. Some of these fires have come very close to urban areas, including Quito, and one required the evacuation of several houses. There have been no deaths reported, but smoke inhalation has been a problem.
Ecuador’s firefighters are responding to these fires and the government has declared an orange (2nd highest level) alert in the following provinces: Carchi, Imbabura, Pichincha, Cotopaxi, Chimborazo, Cañar, Azuay, El Oro and Loja. This alert level requires that emergency operation centers are manned 24 hours a day and makes national resources, such as firefighters from other areas, available to respond to local hotspots. U.S. citizens should monitor local media and follow the instructions of local authorities if asked to evacuate.
Please be extra vigilant when using any fire source-matches, cigarettes, BBQ, etc. If you live near dry vegetation keep the plants and area near your house moist. Clear away any dead brush or garbage that can help create a fire ladder to your property. Make a plan for what to do-have your “go bag” ready, know your potential escape routes-should fire threaten your house. Fire moves very fast and is very destructive- it should be taken very seriously.
El Heraldo (Honduras)
In the Mexican state of Tabasco, police intercepted 107 “undocumented” Central Americans. Eighty eight were traveling by bus and 19 were found at a railway facility. 52 were from Honduras, 30 from Guatemala & 25 from El Salvador. According to Mexican government data some 140,000 Central Americans enter Mexico each year with the hope of reaching the northern border and crossing into the United States.

SALINAS VICTORIA, NUEVA LEÓN
The executed man found yesterday in Salinas Victoria was identified as Jesus Eduardo Reyes Garcia, “The Gomas”, former leader of the Zetas in the citrus region. Through fingerprints, the state attorney general’s office confirmed that the deceased is the criminal who was involved in the kidnapping and execution of Raul and Fortino Garza, brothers of the state leader of the PRI, Sergio Alanis. The brothers were abducted on May 7 in Allende and although the family paid the ransom, their bodies were later found. He was identified as responsible for many kidnappings and executions, and also as identified as ordering the execution of his accomplice Jesus Landin Gladin or Vargas, “El Diablo”, found on 6 June in Galeana.
“The Gums” fled the citrus region after state and military authorities conducted a “sweep” in those municipalities. He was found dead along the side of the road. A .223 caliber case was found.
The report starts with ‘Blood runs in Nuevo León’. On Saturday, the deaths of 5 people were reported in various incidents and locales. Of note is one in Apodaca, where the victim was dismembered and beheaded. His head was found elsewhere in a phone booth, and the torso in a square. The arms and legs were left a few blocks away.
CADAREYTA, NUEVO LEÓN
State police arrested a leader for the Gulf Cartel on Saturday, identified as José Inés Medina Rodríguez, 36 yrs, and the plaza boss for the town of Juarez. Later, a man identified as Rigoberto Medina Salinas, 25, who claimed to be his family, arrived at police headquarters. He attempted to bribe the officers to release the boss with over 200,000 pesos (US $15548.48), and was arrested. When arrested, the plaza boss had tried to hide a gun, which when found, was a 9mm pistol with the embedded image of Santa Muerte and with 24 bullets. He was found to have a warrant from 1993 when he shot and wounded a man. (Indicating he’s been in the narco business a long time, and thus a good source of intelligence.)
Federal police were attacked by gunmen in a house while on patrol on Saturday. The ensuing gunfight killed 5 badguys, who were armed with 3 log guns and 2 pistols. The house appeared to be uninhabited, with only a small table, bed and small refrigerator.
The Mexican Army caught 8 members of the Guerreros Unidos criminal group in the vicinity of Jojutla, Morelos , on the border with the state of Guerrero. The 6 men and 2 women tried to escape by running across the fields, but were apprehended without shots fired. Soldiers seized 16 AR-15 and AK-47 type rifles, five pistols and drugs, ammunition and tactical vests. The criminal cell operates in the region of Tierra Caliente and northern Guerrero, and in several towns in Morelos.
Authorities says that there are about 47 vehicles used daily by organized crime in different parts of the country to commit robberies, kidnappings and abductions, and to transport drugs, among other crimes, such as gunfights. From 2007 to August, federal authorities have seized 98, 646 vehicles used by organized crimes, most reported as stolen. In states like Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas and Coahuila, auto theft has picked up due to the war between criminal gangs for control. From January to August 2012 there have been 41,701 complaints of vehicle theft with violence, and 96,536 without violence, mostly as the cars were parked.
