Ramirez was at a party at a residence on the 3400 block of Queretaro Loop in Las Americas neighborhood in south Laredo, Texas. “Witnesses stated that Ramirez also bragged that Ramirez stole approximately $50,000 from the Cartel Del Noreste,” states the affidavit.
Witnesses overheard Ramirez telling a female on the phone that he was in Laredo and was not in danger or afraid of her because he was in the United States, the affidavit states. Ramirez gave the female his location on Queretaro.
A blue four-door Dodge Ram truck arrived at the location on Queretaro. Two to three masked men armed with firearms exited the vehicle and assaulted Ramirez. Then, at gunpoint, they forced Ramirez into the truck.
The Ram truck, with license plate PRT-1578, then crossed into Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Mexico via the Juarez-Lincoln International Bridge. Authorities determined that the vehicle was registered to Jonathan Cavriales’ mother out of the 200 block of Palo de Rosa Loop by the Laredo Ranchettes area, the affidavit states.
