CANCUN — It was identified that were three cartels that operate at the Center of Social Reinsertion (Centro de Reinserción Social, “CERESO”, in Spanish) in Cancun, both inside and outside the facility: Jalisco New Generation Cartel (Cartel de Jalisco Nueva Generación, CJNG), The Gulf Drug Cartel (Cartel del Golfo, CDG) and “Los Pelones”, which handle extortion and drug trafficking.
“The operators are identified”, commented on his visit to this tourist destination, Minister of Interior Miguel Angel Osorio Chong, who arrived days after the city was reinforced with more elements, both military and federal.
Osorio made the announcement at a meeting of federal and state officials in Cancun on Wednesday April 5.
In Cancún, those who control the interior of the prison are identified as “El Flozer” or “Apa” and “El Zonda”, who belong to the criminal group “Los Pelones”.
“El Jonathan” is another of those who lead a part of this prison, said to belong to the CJNG and held for the crime of carrying firearms for the exclusive use of the Mexican Army.
“El Pipo” and “Reyna” belong to the Gulf Cartel (CDG); they and the rest of those named above operate mainly in the areas of “Almoloya” and “Albatros” in the jail.
At this last area (Albatros) is where the new inmates arrive and remain during 72 hours, until a judge resolves their legal situation.
In the hours that they remain in that place the new inmates are beaten if they do not abide the leader’s orders. The cartel operatives also extort them, and they ask for money from their relatives not to beat them or make them do jobs like cleaning latrines and cells, among others.
These leaders are responsible for the two blankets with threatening messages, which they placed recently in the municipal cemetery “Los Olivos”, which is located about 50 meters from the prison.
The intelligence authorities have information that these capos were instructed by cell phone by members of their criminal group to place the blankets, with a threatening message against managers of the Center.
In eight months, about 70 cell phones have been confiscated from inmates, some from area bosses or from self-government inmates; the devices are delivered to the intelligence area of the State Preventive Police, to empty all the information.
Data such as photographs, conversations, voice audios, have been recovered from the cell phones seized. The information obtained has shown how leaders operate in their areas, for the purchase and sale of drugs.
The latest information is that the inmates were upset because they had detected and arrested the two custodians who provided the drugs inside. As for telephone communication, the inhibitor system does not work.
