Diamond-Studded Guns Part of Mexican Drug Lord's Haul
Police in Mexico's Jalisco state got quite a surprise when they raided a hideout that they believe belongs to Valencia drug cartel boss Oscar Nava Valencia, they found 31 diamond-studded handguns. The gold and silver plated handguns were studded with diamonds and ornately engraved. Some bore the word lobo (Spanish for wolf) and others are decorated with wolf pictures. One gun bears a Ferrari logo. The federal authorities found a total of 38 guns, 75 magazines, several hundred cartridges, Rolex and Cartier watches, a Cadillac pickup truck, marijuana and some cash. Valencia (sometimes called "El Lobo") is the presumed operating chief of the Milenio Cartel. He is currently being held at the Altiplano prison, Mexico's highest security federal penitentiary.
