An alleged Sinaloa cartel leader arrested in Yucatan last week has reportedly been released from jail in Merida.

Although the Yucatán delegation of the federal Attorney General’s Office (PGR) disclosed in a statement the release of two of the three detainees in Tizimín, the release does not specify who they are.

Unofficial sources indicate that one of those released is Roberto Nájera Gutiérrez, alias “la Gallina.”

“‘La Gallina’ has already flown,” said the source, confirming the decision of the federal judicial authorities to release the alleged member of the Sinaloa Cartel.

Nájera Gutiérrez and another of his companions, arrested on Thursday Jan. 26 at a Tizimín checkpoint with weapons exclusively for the Army, were released from the Cereso jail in Mérida on Sunday Jan. 29.

The only one apprehended who will continue in prison is Romeo Orantes Gómez.
