An armed suspect was arrested at the Arizona-Mexico border Wednesday, with initial reports saying the man is connected with a cartel ambush that left 9 Americans dead earlier this week.

“The Agency for Criminal Investigation said in a statement on Facebook the suspect was found in the town of Agua Prieta, right across the border from Douglas, Arizona. The suspect was holding two hostages who were bound and gagged inside a vehicle,” reports Fox News.

“This sort of thing shouldn’t go unnoticed,” Austin Cloes, a relative of one of the victims, said. “And these sorts of people shouldn’t just be buried without their names being put out there. These are great people.”

President Trump called for a “war” against the cartels shortly after the deadly rampage.

“A wonderful family and friends from Utah got caught between two vicious drug cartels, who were shooting at each other, with the result being many great American people killed, including young children, and some missing. If Mexico needs or requests help in cleaning out these monsters, the United States stands ready, willing & able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively. The great new President of Mexico has made this a big issue, but the cartels have become so large and powerful that you sometimes need an army to defeat an army!” posted the President on social media.

“This is the time for Mexico, with the help of the United States, to wage WAR on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth. We merely await a call from your great new president!” he added.
