Gangsters use truck fitted with ram in prison breakout of Mexican boss

Mexican gangsters used a convoy of vehicles to ram into a prison in Tula, north of Mexico City, and set free nine people. Several vehicles, including a truck with homemade armor-plating, were used as part of the dramatic breakout.

The Pueblos Unidos Cartel is dedicated to the theft of fuel in the Hidalgo region.
Soldiers, police, and the national guard launched a manhunt to find the escapees. Freedom found José Artemio Maldonado Mejía, "El Michoacano," leader of a local crime group Pueblos Unidos.

Mejía had been in custody for only a week before the breakout.
