REYNOSA, MEXICO- Mexican authorities arrested a man who was trying to smuggle assault rifles and ammunition into Mexico from the Pharr International Bridge.
The Mexican Federal Public Ministry accuses Juan Enriquez for doing that act earlier this week. He was stopped at the Mexican check point where soldiers found three assault rifles along with thousands of rounds of ammunition and 100 magazines. The weapons were found in his 2007 Kenworth tractor trailer.
Enriquez was arrested and expected to be sentenced by Mexican authorities in Reynosa.
