Mexican authorities working with the FBI unearthed two bodies near a ranch allegedly controlled by a local gang.

The bodies of Eloy Rivera and Juan Garcia, both of Nuevo Laredo, were found near Jimenez Ranch in Nuevo Laredo, said Ignacio Salinas, an assistant prosecutor for the northeastern state of Tamaulipas.

In a raid on the ranch, police arrested Antonio Rodriguez, a Mexican who had been living in Laredo, Texas. Also taken into custody were former Mexican military officer Gonzalo Garcia, Elpidio Martinez and Victor Paez, all of Nuevo Laredo, and Jorge Martinez of Irapuato.
