Chilling Google Maps image appears to show creepy Halloween drug cartel members

A group of apparent cartel members wearing creepy masks have been unearthed on Google Maps.

Four masked men can be seen standing on a road in Moctezuma in Sonora, Mexico.

One of them has a harrowing Scream mask on and another a Mexican luchador face covering.

A third is dressed like a werewolf alongside a man in a balaclava and hat.

The men were photographed in the area once known for the Sonora Cartel, one of the oldest and best-established gangs in the country.

They made their name as one of the first cartels to ship cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamine into the US.

The photo of the gang members was shared on the Reddit subreddit r/GoogleMaps with the caption “I just found the masked guys in Mexico.”

One commented: “That’s the cartel. You wanna stay far far away from those masks.”

Another one said: “Oh shoot damn must of been scary for the Google Maps driver.”

Someone wrote: “Did Mario just join Ghostface and the gang?”

Mexican gang violence is well known for being among the most unrelentingly violent in the world.

Since 2006 an estimated 150,000 people have lost their lives in the country due to organised criminal violence, according to the Council on Foreign Relations.

There are around 200 criminal cells operating in the country and at least 130 politicians were killed in the run up to the 2018 presidential elections.
