Caught on video illegally selling assault rifles and sensitive information to undercover informants, a former officer of the year has also been accused of secretly working for Los Zetas cartel in a drug trafficking conspiracy in operation since 2006. Although the cop allegedly provided the cartel with firearms, bulletproof vests, luxury vehicles, police scanners, and database access, recently filed court documents revealed at least two convicted coc aine traffickers are cooperating with the government against the disgraced cop.
Fired from the department following his own arrest, Juarez claims he had no idea that his nephew was a member of the Zetas cartel. But as the evidence continues to pile up with undercover surveillance videos and co-conspirators testifying against him, Juarez appears to simply be another cartel associate who successfully infiltrated the Houston Police Department.

If this story is true, I'm not surprised in the least. The whole reason the 2006 Mexican Cartel Wars happened is because the Mexican law enforcement agencies were so heavily infiltrated by the cartels. So the Mexican President sent in the military to both fight the cartels and to clean out the corruption.
It ended up being an entangled 3 way war between the military, police, and cartels. Some LEOs were helping the cartels ambush other LEOs & military, while some were helping the military. And this was in addition to the cartels that were fighting each other.
