Mexican Marines seized a large cache of weapons allegedly belonging to the violent Zetas drug cartel — it’s the third seizure in a week and the largest.
Officials say they took 358 rifles, 11 handguns, 17 grenades, and almost 118,000 rounds of ammunition from where they were buried in a vacant lot near the city of Monclova.
Marines at a highway checkpoint stopped five people with weapons and military uniforms who led them to the stash.
