Fresnillo, Zacatecas: Cartel de Sinaloa Interrogates Captured Operatives

The Cartel de Sinaloa released the following videos onto social media between June and September of 2020. In these broadcasts captured operatives for several different cartels in and around Fresnillo, Zacatecas detail the inner workings and pitfalls of their illicit affairs. 

Just as well the common thread between all these recently released videos is the name of commander Villa from the Zacatecas State Police who helped in facilitating their network. Also of note is the mentioning of Carteles Unidos being within the region fighting for the plaza.

Captive : My name is Cuatemo Reyes Ramos, I belong to the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación. We specialize in extortions, kidnappings, buying stolen property, and selling drugs. We work for commander Villa from the State Police. His patrol unit numbers are 622 and 653. 

The person in charge of kidnappings is Mr. Ricardo, he’s the guy who backs up El Panteón. And he has several different people selling drugs for him. We were left waiting to get rescued for money. Our pay is a miserable one. In the end we just weren’t successful at all in our jobs. 

Sicario : What do you specialize in and who do you work for?

Captive : I worked for Cartel del Golfo, Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación, and now Carteles Unidos. I specialize in selling drugs, cocaine, crystal meth, and marijuana. I also buy and sell stolen property. Sometimes they send me to collect money from the extortions or taxation’s. 

I encourage everyone not to believe the lies these scum are saying, they’re no good as individuals. They will leave you thrown aside to fend for yourself. They only thing they would do is obligate us to work for them on the condition that if we didn’t they’d have our families killed. 

The drug dealers are Saul Reyes aka El Niño and Gabriel Segura aka El Cholo. I want to ask my nephew Freddie if you can take me out of this mess. I’d like for you to pay the ransom of 3000 pesos.

Sicario : What’s your name?

Captive : Alberto Perales Vásquez. 

Sicario : How exactly do you help out the Carteles Unidos?

Captive : I sell crystal meth, cocaine, and I also charge taxation’s. I collect money on extortions and taxation’s. 

Sicario : And what all is promised to you guys?

Captive : We’re told that they will help us out. But the actual truth is something else entirely, we’re left to fend for ourselves. 

Sicario : What message would you like the townspeople to know?

Captive : My message for them is not to believe the lies that the Carteles Unidos, Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación, and Cartel del Golfo are saying. 

Sicario : What happens if you refuse to work for them?

Captive : If we refuse to work we’re told that our families will be killed. 

Sicario : Who do you work for and what do you specialize in?

Captive : I work for Cartel del Golfo, Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación, and Carteles Unidos. I sell cocaine, marijuana, and crystal meth. I also buy and sell stolen property. I just want the townspeople to know not to believe the lies that the Cartel del Golfo has to say. 

The same goes for Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación and Carteles Unidos. They get you involved and lie to you. You’re left to fend for yourselves. Just as well I’m also being held here because I raped an underage girl. Freddie is the person who got me involved in all of this. 

He lied to me and now I’m having to pay for his actions. I just want everyone to know not to believe the lies from those rats the Cartel del Golfo, Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación, and Carteles Unidos. 

There’s another drug dealer who goes by the name of Saul Reyes aka El Niño and El Cholo involved. Don’t believe any of the lies the Cartel del Golfo has to say. They won’t help you to progress.
