PUEBLA — The Deputy Prosecutor for Specialized Investigation of Organized Crime (SEIDO) and the Secretary of the Navy arrested in Puebla the alleged leader of the Cancun cartel, Leticia Rodríguez Lara, known as ‘Doña Lety’ or ‘La 40’.
Although the authorities have not officially confirmed the fact, it is known that her presence was detected by the intelligence services of SEIDO, and she was captured in a hotel located near Puebla City.
Leticia Rodríguez Lara is 48 years old and served as a federal police officer until she allegedly entered the ranks of organized crime, linking with the Sinaloa cartel. Authorities believe she created a crime network in which she included the police through acquaintances inside the department in which she worked, those who she corrupted to carry out various crimes.
For example, alleged crimes included extortion to bars and restaurants in Cancun and Playa del Carmen, being able to manage the whole Cancun tourist zone where she carried out several attacks against opposition groups or civilians who did not pay the fees demanded.
She is accused of having created a growing network of street drug sales that turned itself into one of the most violent cells linked to the Sinaloa cartel, where deserters of the criminal groups Los Zetas and the Gulf Cartel were recruited.
