KRGV-TV is reporting that police in La Grulla, Texas found a member of the Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) gang among several illegal immigrants. The undocumented immigrant was arrested after some tense moments.

The police officer said he was shocked to find a member of the hyper-violent gang among the immigrants. He said the 26-year-old illegal immigrant from El Salvador was covered in tattoos linking him to the criminal organization.

"I observed that the rear passenger had some tattoos on his elbow. Once I confronted him about them, he stated he was a gang member. Once I asked him to lift up his shirt, that's where I observed he had MS-13 tattooed on his chest and his back," the officer said.

MS-13 members are notorious for their use of violence, merciless revenge and cruel retributions.
