criminal operators of the Jalisco, Sinaloa and Arellano Félix cartels


By recruiting David López Jiménez
alias “El Lobo” or “Cabo 20”, Pablo Edwin Huerta Nuño “El Flaquito” and Roque García, from the Arellano Félix Cartel (CAF),
managed to grow in number their cells of hitmen and drug dealers, and with This
will gain territory from the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel (CJNG) in Tijuana.

“Los Cabos” are a group
of thugs formed from 2015 by the CJNG in Tijuana, but many of them changed to
CAF, and are currently facing death with the Sinaloa mafia and their former
colleagues from Jalisco, generating a high percentage of the more than 1,570
murders that have been committed so far in 2020 in Tijuana.

López operated with Jalisco until
2018, when he confronted Héctor Manuel Morales Guzmán “El Gallero” -disappeared
on May 5, 2019-, leader of the CJNG who, drugged, ordered to kill left and

In 2019, “El Lobo”
allied with the CAF and was arrested in Querétaro in March 2020, and as of the
night of July 18, when thugs murdered Mario Delval Barocio alias “Cabo
33”, “Tony” and / or “Mariola” on Alba Roja street in the
Hipódromo Dos neighborhood, La Mesa Delegation, the rout was accelerated.

with the CAF”, and “those who still remain with Jalisco are afraid and stay
away from Alfonso Trapero”, the CJNG operative leader in the Baja California
Coast Zone who remains hidden in the mountainous area of

“In Tijuana, the CAF at this
time recovered a drug dealing zone, thanks to its allies, who have those from
Jalisco cornered in Natura.”

groups last week, after the capture of “Los Cabos”: Édgar Pérez Villa “El Nier”
or “Cabo 89”; and Víctor González Ochoa “Cabo 85”, whose investigations found
accounts of changes in criminal alliances. Both were indicted for possession of
a weapon and released under trial.

Elías Alberto López Gastélum and José Alberto Souza Montero, since January
Pablo Edwin Huerta Nuño, head of CAF, paid a guarantee of 10,000 pesos and
obtained a protection from the federal justice that protects him from an
“apprehension, arrest, presentation and/or any issue that tends to deprive me
of my freedom, violating my individual guarantees enshrined in the Political
Constitution of the United Mexican States.


Last week, the Secretariat of
National Defense (Sedena), the National Guard and the Municipal Public Security
Secretariat of Tijuana received reports that Óscar Antonio López Arellano,
alias Rodolfo López Arellano “Solecito” and/or “Cabo 30”
would have an important family celebration, which opened up a possibility to
stop him.

According to the organization
chart and the information held by the Coordination Tables for the Construction
of Peace and Security, the CJNG is the main generator of violence in Tijuana
and has an arrest warrant against him for homicide.

The coordinated forces waited for
information of time and place, but it did not arrive. Instead, patrolling the
area of
​​Sánchez Taboada and Los Pinos, the information
they received led them behind
Cabo 89, who could provide them with details of the
location of their supposed boss

all with cardboard that says the same, leave them about four ceviches on the
cock now”.

found another black bag, it contained a human head and a card with the same

In this context, “Cabo
89” became a priority target, however, upon locating him – according to
the police report – they only found him in possession of a weapon.But the audio
in which they mention the dismembered, the murderer himself speaks of the
corruption of the special operations group of the Tijuana Municipal Police,
which the criminals nickname “Las Vaquitas” and the criminal claims
to have controlled:


“Erre, check if they are ‘Vaquitas’ to open them, everyone in general if the ‘Vaquitas’ are bothering
you, write down the unit number and let me know in private, the data is not
useful if they do not give me the unit number , so that they are aware ”,
information that also led to an internal investigation.

Tijuana Municipal Public Security Secretariat, headed by the Mexican Army
