Servando Gómez Martínez (born February 6, 1966), commonly referred to by his alias La Tuta (or The Teacher) for once being a teacher, is a Mexican suspected drug lord and former leader of the “Knights Templar” Cartel, a criminal organization based in the state of Michoacán. He is a former leader and founder member of “La Familia Michoacana” drug cartel, the split-off group of the Knights Templar.
The PGR offered a reward of 30 million pesos (2 million USD) for information that could lead to his detention.
On Wednesday, February 25th, suspects linked to “La Tuta” were arrested in a police operation across Arteaga and Tumbiscatío municipalities, in the state of Michoacán. This series of operations led to the leader’s arrest.
There will be a press conference on the next hours to give details about his detention.
