Suspected members of a Mexican drug cartel disguised as federal police entered a state prison in the northern state of Zacatecas and freed 59 inmates, police and army officials said.

Most of the prisoners who escaped are believed to be members of the armed wing of Mexico’s Gulf Cartel, one of the country’s most powerful criminal organizations…

The early morning jailbreak was carried out by heavily armed men dressed in the uniform of an elite federal police force.

The men, who arrived in 15 vehicles and a helicopter, gained entry into the prison after claiming they had been ordered to transfer a prisoner to another location, state police officials said.

Well, hey – they said they were “official”…even had real badges.
