One of the men accused in last month's kidnapping that police say has ties to the Gulf Cartel was arrested by Brownsville police this weekend for allegedly molesting a child.
Brownsville police spokesman J.J. Trevino said police brought Hector Primitivo Salinas, 39, of Brownsville, from the Cameron County jail to the city jail Friday after investigators determined he was wanted in connection with an incident reported in February.
A 9-year-old girl told a teacher in February that Salinas touched her inappropriately. Police declined to release the girl's relationship with Salinas or the circumstances surrounding her contact with him.
The school filed a report with Child Protective Services and Brownsville police on Feb 29. Police eventually obtained an arrest warrant for the man, Trevino said.
Harlingen police have charged Salinas with aggravated kidnapping and engaging in organized criminal activity in connection with a March 9 kidnapping in broad daylight at a Harlingen McDonald's.
Court documents allege that Jose Antonio Gonzalez, 42, hired Salinas and at least three others to kidnap a man who owed money to the Gulf Cartel for a stolen drug load.
Gonzalez, along with Brownsville residents Pedro Francisco Garza, 36, and Alexander Hernandez, 19, are currently held in the county jail on the kidnapping charges.

“Illegal aliens do not change their stripes just because they cross the border: Why should we be importing rapists and sexual predators who hold barbaric attitudes towards women? Do we need to add to the pool of home-grown criminals? Why should American females be sacrificed at the altar of multiculturalism? “
All good questions.
