MORELIA, Mexico (AP) — Police in western Mexico have found 13 bodies at a gas station in the state of Michoacan.

Michoacan state prosecutors' spokesman Jonathan Arredondo says the bodies were dumped Monday near a convenience store on the gas station lot in the town of Zitacuaro.

Arredondo said threatening messages were found with the bodies, but he wouldn't comment on their content or give any other details.

Michoacan is home base to The Knights Templar cartel, a pseudo-religious gang specializing in methamphetamine production, drug smuggling, extortion and other crimes.
