Martin Juarez Campos, a 24-year-old man arrested Saturday, claimed to be a member of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel on his Facebook page, The Costa Rica Star reported.
Campos posted threatening messages and photos and videos of armed men and luxury cars, according to a news release from the Jalisco state attorney general’s office.
The 24-year-old man last uploaded a video of him opening a gift-wrapped box containing a gold-plated pistol with encrusted diamonds, the Star reported. He thanked “El Mencho,” the nickname of the cartel’s leader Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes.
After his arrest, investigators determined that Campos had no ties to drug cartels or its members and posted the photos and videos to his Facebook profile for fun.
The newspaper reported that investigators discovered Campos is a forklift operator who lived in Guadalajara.
Campos is being held in the Puente Grande prison facility in Jalisco, according to the Star.
