DO YOU KNOW WHO Jose Treviño Morales IS?
Jose Treviño Morales and several associates were detained in a massive federal operation that included raids on his Oklahoma ranch and on the Tremor Enterprises stables in Ruidoso, New Mexico.
Jose is the older brother of Miguel Angel Treviño Morales, the top enforcer for Los Zetas, which has earned a reputation as the most brutal of Mexico's drug trafficking organizations.
Quarter horses from Tremor Enterprises stables have earned more than $2.5 million at racetracks in the U.S. Southwest.
Jose Treviño recruited Ramiro Villarreal to locate and purchase horses for the operation, which attracted the attention of U.S. authorities in 2010, when Tremor Enterprises spent more than $1 million of Los Zetas money for breeding stock, The Times said.
