On the early morning hours of Tuesday, March 10th, 2015, Federal Forces deployed an operation on Calle 35 (between 64 and 66), on the east end of Progreso, the main port of the state of Yucatan, where Victor Aguirre Garzón (aka El Gordo), was arrested.
“El Gordo” is considered the leader of a criminal organization known as “Acapulco Independent Cartel” (Cartel Independiente de Acapulco).
Federal government sources reported that the arrest was carried out by elements of the Federal Police as part of a monitoring intelligence investigation operation.
The detainee was immediately taken to Mexico City and made available to the Federal Public Ministry of the Attorney General’s Office (PGR).
According to unofficial reports, this dangerous criminal, allegedly a cousin of the former Governor of Guerrero, Angel Aguirre Rivero, used to be a federal police officer, and is believed to be the drug supplier for the inmates of “Las Cruces” State Prison in Acapulco, Guerrero; where he trafficked illegal substances in complicity with his alleged family and state authorities.
