Mexican Federal Police presented police officers Victor Landeros, a.k.a "La Iguana," and Jorge Tenoria a.k.a "El Taka," along with Roberto Clemente Barcenas.

The suspects are accused of delivering Jose Eduardo Moreiro, 28, the son of Humberto Moreiro, the former chair of the PRI party, to Zetas drug cartel members.
