CANCUN — The Associated Press reported Mexican military and police forces say they have captured a member of the Jalisco Nueva Generación drug cartel suspected of being behind a shooting attack on the office of prosecutors in Cancun.
The attack in January left four people dead and marred Cancun’s reputation as a calm beach resort. It came a day after a shooting at a music festival at nearby Playa del Carmen, which left three foreigners and two Mexicans dead.
Security forces said in a joint statement on Sunday July 23 that the Jalisco New Generation Cartel member was taken into custody during raids on five houses in Cancun. The suspect was identified as Joshua Loyo (aka “EL LOBO”).
The statement called him “one of the main generators of violence in Quintana Roo” state.
It said he was presumably responsible for killing members of rival gangs.
