NUEVO LAREDO, Mexico – It was a very public warning to thieves and kidnappers.

The bodies of five men were discovered brutally murdered on la avenida Monterrey y privada Taxco in Nuevo Laredo Saturday morning.

Mexican investigators say the victims had their hands tied, their eyes covered and each had a gunshot wound to the head.

There was also a message found warning thieves and kidnappers that if anyone robs a bank or even steals candy there will be trouble.

The message found on a cardboard sign goes on to say that it doesn't matter who you are.

Mexican officials have been unable to identify any of the men killed or their involvement in stealing or kidnapping in the area.

No arrests have been made.
