The presumed kidnappers are in the public jail in Cabo San Lucas.

Colectivo Pericú published that the three men and a woman were arrested by the Los Cabos municipal police when they were plainly identified by the tourist, who they had kidnapped last Tuesday night, and beat and robbed him of his cash and bank cards he was carrying.

Unofficially, it was reported that the woman was used as a “hook” to attract the foreigner who was staying at the Marina Fiesta Hotel in Cabo San Lucas. As he was talking with her, three men approached who kidnapped the tourist and took him to an unknown home where he was tied up and tortured, according to the source. It was not until Thursday night that the victim was dumped in the tourist zone of Cabo San Lucas and he went on his own to the police station in Sector 1 to report the crime.

Christian pastor knocks up two sisters, he told them his dick was the Holy Spirit

Translated by Fulano from an article in HechoInformativo.com .

This afternoon a pastor from the Luz del Mundo church was sentenced to prison for raping a pair of sisters in Oaxaca.

He is Alfredo Huerta Zavala, 56 years old, and he could be sentenced to a term of up to 35 years.

Attorney Rosaura Sánchez worked with the Oaxaca State Attorney General, and explained that the pastor physically abused the girls since they were 13 and 14 years old, for at least four years, more than 100 times, and he was with them for at least three days a week.

Evidence exists which proves the pastor used religion to manipulate the girls, making them believe that he was selected by Christ, and because of that, they should rely upon him. The pastor planned his activities for a long time, including knowing when the girls were menstruating, as well as their periods of fertility.

The girls were abused in a little studio in the congregation that the pastor led, always using protection to avoid they become pregnant.

Translated by Fulano from an article in BCS Noticias.

Ciudad Constitución, Baja California Sur (BCS). Police officers Jesús Manuel Cisneros Macías and Alejandro Núñez Quintero, were fired from the ranks of the municipal police of Comondú, accused of extorting money from two  journalists of the well known National Geographic, who were recording material for documentaries in areas of Baja California Sur.

This week they were reported to the Commission for Honor and Justice for these acts, and were finally terminated, which was published in the local news media, which also said they had demanded 2,300 pesos (US$140)from the journalists.

The money had to be repaid when they were called to give an accounting by Benigno Murillo, Chief of Police and Humberto Gutiérreaz Briseño, Secretary General of the Municipality of Comondú, as Mayor Francisco Pelayo Covarrubia gave instructions to fire the police when he learned of the events.

Although the location of where the presumed extortion was not given, nor the tricks used by the police, it turned out that the two police officers had been identified by citizens for committing similar corrupt acts, but it could not be proven.

Federal Electricity Commission loses millions in power thefts

Translated by Fulano from an article in El Mexicano.

MEXICALI – The Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) has energy thefts every day, and using sophisticated methods, and it is done by people with economic power who live in luxury residences as well as businesses. Those popularly called “diablitos” is a small thing and for low income users, the largest theft is among the people who have money and their objective is to avoid payment.

This was reported by engineer Humberto López Guzmán, superintendent for distribution for the CFE in Mexicali.

He estimates that the CFE has losses of some 250 million pesos per year (US$15 million), which is added to the ordinary losses from power outages and that is added the deliberate theft of power. That figure is only for Mexicali and represents around 5% of the total power generation distributed in Mexicali.

Every day, he said, we discover that somebody is stealing power, it is a serious problem and even more serious is that the power is not being stolen for lack of money, as these are people who live in high-end residential zones.

These people know what they are doing and contract with energy systems professionals to redirect power with hidden installations, leaving only minimal power consumption’s visible on the power meters.

He warned that sooner, rather than later, the Commission will detect these frauds. One can fool them for six or eight months, but not all the time.

The official said there are new legal rules the CFE can uses for power theft. It is a serious federal crime, he said, and can warrant criminal penalties.

However, for now, he added, the CFE is is making adjustments. That is, they are calculating the real consumption that was not paid for the power theft and then send large bills which are difficult to pay.

CFE EMPLOYEES COULD BE INVOLVED

López Guzmán said that although there are no documented cases, CFE employees could be making hidden installations to steal energy. The installations which have been discovered are done by professionals, by people who know it is possible that there are employees involved in these disloyal activities, although he insists there is no documented case of this.

Recommend deparasitizing twice a year

Translated by Fulano from an article in AFN Tijuana.

ENSENADA BC – November 8, 2015 – Poor hygiene, inadequate washing of fruits and vegetables and not properly washing hands are some of the main causes why people suffer from parasitosis, said Dr. Jesús Salinas Méndez, director of the Family Medicine Unit of the Mexican Social Security Institute.

A person with parasites can have symptoms of tiredness, lack of concentration, pain and inflammation of the stomach, diarrhea, constipation, flatulence and headaches.

One effective and preventative measure is to deparasitize children and adults at least twice per year and children two and older up the three times per year, as they are more exposed to dust from playing outside and in contact with pets.

Parasites, said the doctor, have their own life cycle, and in the case of those in the intestines, they can survive up to 10 years, reproducing over and over again, as is the case with Ascaris (worms).

Salinas Méndez warned that failure to take necessary measures will eventually have serious consequences, mainly in children, which cause nutritional deficiencies and anemia as they cause frequent diarrhea.

He reminded people to use preventative measures and be aware of the reinforcement measures in health campaigns and use the Albendazon which is supplied in the Medical Units and schools punctually.

Mexican Supreme Court allows recreational use of Marijuana

Translated by Fulano from an article in Frontera.info.

MEXICO CITY – Ministers José Ramón Cossío Díaz, Olga Sánchez Cordero and Arturo Zaldivar Lelo de Larrea voted for the recreational use of marijuana. Minster Jorge Pardo voted against it.

With that, the First Chamber of the Supreme Court of the Nation declared as unconstitutional five articles in the General Health Law which prohibit the Secretary of Health from authorizing acts related with the personal use of marijuana for recreational purposes, such as to plant, cultivate, harvest, prepare, possess and transport that plant.

In addition, the ministers decided to issue an injunction from prosecution, that is for the recreational consumption of the drug, but only for those members of the association which brought suit against the articles which prohibit the recreational consumption of marijuana.

Minister Olga Sánchez Cordero voted for the issue brought forth by minister Zaldívar. “The absolute prohibition is excessive and does not protect the right to health. The recreational consumption should be authorized to respect personal rights,” she said.

Atrocious murder in Tijuana, baby cut from mother’s womb

Translated by Fulano from an article in Zeta Tijuana.

November 2, 2015 – A pregnant woman was murdered and, unofficially, the police at the scene said it could have been by hanging. The police at the scene said that after being killed, one or several persons cut open her body with a sharp instrument to remove the baby from her womb.

According the press release from the Chief of Police, the crime occurred the night of Friday, October 30, in Tijuana.

The bulletin detailed that those presumed responsible were arrested afterwards when a woman named Nancy Carrasco Pérez came to the Seguro Social Clinic 1 for help. She supposedly had given birth at her home located in colonia Mariano Maramoros.

However, after an examination, the doctors detected she had no indications of pregnancy nor having given birth.

Municipal police discovered it was a ruse and the biological mother of the newborn had been murdered and the police rescued the baby. According to police sources the baby was in good health.

Police data indicates that on the day of the murder, the victim was accompanied by a two year old child, who was just left on a street by those who had attacked his mother. With the help of neighbors, the child was found walking in the area.

Reyna Isabel Muñoz Guzmán, Ramón and Vanesa Ortega Garibay and Francisco Javier Torres Cubias were arrested at a home on avenida Chalqueños for the crime and are being held by the investigating authority.

Police Chief Alejandro Lares Valladares said in the press release and interview that another woman said they came to the home and found blood stains, which they followed and saw there was a female body covered up with clothing.

“This person called for the municipal authorities, who secured the crime scene as well as the five people that were with her. The police went to the hospital where Nancy was being attended to and spoke with the doctor treating her, who gave them vital information,” said the press release.

The report added that a knife was found at the scene of the crime which appears to have been used to remove the baby from the womb.

The state attorney general is now investigating the crime.
