Kidnapper and Extortioner Captured
On Thursday the kidnapping unit of the state police in Juarez arrested Roberto Gallegos Reyes, alias “El Beto,” 32, shortly after police in Chihuahua captured four men charged with kidnapping a businessman on August 28. They apparently named Gallegos as the leader of a gang responsible for multiple kidnappings of prominent medical doctors and may have given information about his whereabouts. The gang was also responsible, according to authorities, for a series of extortions in Chihuahua city and Juarez.
