SAN LUIS, Ariz. -- A man wanted on a warrant for attempted murder in
Nevada has been arrested at the southern Arizona border.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers said Ever Geovany Vivar
Jr., 20, was taken into custody Monday to the San Luis Port of Entry.

CBP officers referred Vivar for additional questioning when he
attempted to enter Arizona through the pedestrian area.
After officers ran a routine records check and discovered an active
arrest warrant out of Reno, Vivar was turned over to the Yuma County
Sheriff's Office.

Authorities didn't immediately provide additional information on the
Nevada warrant Tuesday and they didn't know whether Vivar has a
lawyer yet.

Blog: Report suggest narcos have 'enslaved' engineers in Mexico
José Antonioi Robledo Fernández disappeared in 2009, and his parents
suspect he was put to work by organized crime in Coahuila state.
Tim Steller, Arizona Daily Star


Late on the night of June 19 2009, a group of armed men went to a
home in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas and kidnapped nine men.

The nine were members of a team from Sinaloa in town to install
telephone towers.
Hours after the armed men took the technicians, the attackers
returned and took their equipment.

Nextel officials brought the case to the attention of President
Felipe Calderon, but it is still unresolved. The men are gone.

The case is one of several highlighted in a new investigative report
by Mexican news site Animal Politico and InSight Crime. The thrust of
the report is that over recent years, at least 36 professionals have
disappeared in Mexico under circumstances that suggest they may have
been forced to work for their captors.

Specifically, the piece argues, engineers, technicians and others may
have been put to work building communications networks. It notes that
in the last few years, authorities have dismantled more than 400
antennas and repeaters set up by organized-crime groups.

One network, operated by the Zetas in northeastern Mexico, consisted
of 167 antennas and 155 repeaters that linked 1,450 radios and 1,300
cell phones and 1,350 Nextel radioes, all controlled by 70 computers.

Have these kidnapped professionals been put to work building the
networks? The report doesn't prove that, but it poses an interesting
question: Why so many of the kidnapped professionals have disappeared
without a trace. That is, no bodies have been found, and no ransom
has been demanded.

The report gives the greatest attention to the case of engineer José
Antonio Robledo Fernández, who was kidnapped on Jan. 25, 2009 in
Monclava, Coahuila, while speaking to his girlfriend on the phone.
Robledo Fernández was working for construction firm ICA Flour Daniel,
had experience installing antennas and spoke perfect English.

Three days after he disappeared, his parents were in a hotel in
Monclova where they had gone to find their son. A knock came on the
door, and it was the company's the security chief, accompanied by two
members of the Zetas organized-crime group.
"They told us not to go to the police, that they were controling the
police in Monclova and in Saltillo, that they would help us and our
contact would be ICA's security chief," Robledo Fernández's mother,
Guadalupe, said.

The parents went to the police anyway. It turned out the firm had
been paying protection money to criminals, and the security chief was
involved with the Zetas, the report says. Several engineers and other
employees had been kidnapped anyway.

The young man's father, also named José, said: "Sometimes my wife and
I have slapped our foreheads thinking it would have been better to
negotiate with them, with the criminals, instead of wanting to do
things the legal way."

InSight Crime, Animal Político and others are putting out a series of
pieces on those "enslaved" by organized crime in Latin America.
Here's a piece in English on women enslaved by traffickers, and a
piece in Spanish on children.

Note: Have to wonder if el chapo's stuff or someone else's. Could
