A suspected hitman accused of more than two-dozen murders and several kidnappings is behind bars in juarez.
The Mexican Military tells us Eduardo Vera Arias is a suspect in at least 30 execution-style murders and 14 kidnappings.
Vera Arias is from Chiapas, Mexico and authorities say he is part of the La Linea gang.
Meanwhile, new signs are up across our sister city.
Mexican authorities say whoever put them up painted them on walls so it wouldn't be easy for police to remove.
The signs are reportedly from a group who blames another criminal group for killing innocent people.
Almost 1,800 murders have been recorded in Juarez this year.
