During a press conference at the Attorney Generals Office (PGR) in México City, Monte Alejandro Rubido García, National Security Commissioner, informed that La Tuta’s brother, who was linked to five ministerial inquiries, was arrested in Merida, Yucatán without a single shot. The suspect was found in possession of two weapons, a rifle and a gun, and an undetermined amount of drugs.
Eight federal special agents, part of the Specialized Crime Investigation Office (SEIDO) of the PGR, arrived to the Merida Airport on the early morning hours of Friday, February 27th to carry out the operation, just a few hours after the detention of “La Tuta” in Morelia, Michoacan.
According to the information provided by Federal authorities, Flavio Gómez, was in charge of the Criminal group “Caballeros Templarios” in the municipality of Arteaga, Michoacan.

Some sources state he was living in Merida since May 2014, where he apparently received and distributed drugs.
