The four men had their hands bound with tape and were blindfolded, the state prosecutor’s office said in a statement.
Nuevo Leon has seen an increase in drug violence that authorities say stems from a fight between the Gulf cartel and its former ally, the Zetas gang of hit men.
Mexican and U.S. officials say the Gulf cartel has aligned itself with the Sinaloa and La Familia gangs, which are seeking to wipe out the Zetas in northeastern Mexico.
In the Pacific coast state of Guerrero, police said that they found the body of a man Thursday whose head and fingers had been cut off.
The body was found in a plastic bag in the state capital, Chilpancingo, and the head was found next to it.
In the coastal resort city of Acapulco, also in Guerrero state, drug traffickers left a banner on a boulevard accusing local police of protecting Edgar Valdez Villarreal, a U.S.-born enforcer known as “La Barbie.” The banner was signed “B.L.,” an apparent reference to the remnants of the Beltran Leyva cartel, which split with Villarreal.
Also Thursday, the Mexican navy reported it found 8 metric tons of a precursor chemical used to make methamphetamines in shipping containers at the Pacific coast seaport of Manzanillo.
Drug traffickers have turned to phenylacetic acid after Mexico effectively banned imports of another precursor, pseudoephedrine.
