TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) - Soldiers in Tijuana have detained three
suspected drug assassins with uniforms featuring a skull above
crossed crutches, apparently patterned after the logo of the
"Jackass" television show and movies.
The men are suspected of working for a Mexican cartel operator
nicknamed "Muletas," or "Crutches."
The 15 black uniforms found in the men's SUV in Tijuana, across
the border from San Diego, had arm patches with the logo and the
slogan, "Muletas Special Forces."
An army statement issued Friday said the men were pulled over
because their car had bullet holes in one side.
Soldiers found 20 guns in the SUV and another vehicle and
suspect the men were involved in kidnappings and killings. No
charges have yet been filed.
