Carlos Montemayor González was detained last night, after an operation in Santa Fe. He has been presented as the person responsible for the abduction and murder of 20 tourists from the state of Michoacan, who disappeared in Acapulco, Guerrero, earlier this year (Covered here on Borderland Beat.) This information was given by Ramón Eduardo Pequeño García, head of the anti-drug agency within the Federal Police department.

México City.- Federal Police have confirmed that Carlos Montemayor González, alias El Charro, and operator for Édgar Valdez Villarreal, La Barbie, is in their custody at this time. They also believe he ordered the initial abduction of the 20 missing tourists from the neighboring state of Michoacan who were found buried in a shallow grave, earlier this month in Acapulco, Guerrero.

At the press conference, Ramón Eduardo Pequeño García, head of the anti-drug agency within the Federal Police department, informed members of the media that Montemayor González was indeed the father-in-law to Édgar Valdez Villarreal, alias La Barbie.

According to Pequeño García, El Charro presented himself as a business man, but in reality he was the one in charge of leading La Barbie's criminal organization .

"Carlos Montemayor González assumed the leadership role within the organization, this was ordered and indicated to us by La Barbie himself. We have uncovered evidence that a relationship was forged through the marriage of one of El Charro's daughter's to Valdez Villarreal," explained Pequeño García.

Information gathered from the investigation reveals that Montemayor González started his criminal career back in 2003 when Sergio Villarreal Barragán (a) El Grande, at the time a friend and business associate of Édgar Valdez Villarreal, introduced the two men during a family get-together.

Shortly afterwords, Valdez Villarreal was married at the Acapulco port to one of Montemayor González's daughters. This situation favored the fledgling cartel because the merger that would increase the productivity of their organizations.

Pequeño García confirmed that Montemayor González (who also used the name Alejandro García Treviño,) confessed that the abduction of the 20 Michoacan tourists in Acapulco had been a mistake; they thought the men were members of La Familia Michoacana, who were there to take over the plaza.

In his declaration, Montemayor González said that he personally knew Arturo Beltrán Leyva, and his brother Alfredoas well as José Jorge Balderas Garza, El JJ, who is wanted for the murder of professional soccer player Salvador Cabañas.

Montemayor also stated that Valdez Villarreal gave him control of the criminal organization the moment he was arrested on August 30th of this year.

Also arrest with La Barbie's father-in-law; David Garza González, 34 years old, and Alex González Martínez, age 45, who were helping Montemayor in his illicit activities.

I read in another article that C Montemayor was the leader of CIDA(Cartel Independiente de Acapulco), but yet it was CIDA that was leaving narco-mensajes saying this is what will happen to those who are associated with C Montemayor! Now I am really confused, was there internal fighting in La Barbie's organization?

El "JJ" is not wanted for the murder of Salvador Cabañas because he didn't kill him. He did shoot Salvador in the head.

Hang him upside down by his ankles and break out the CHAINSAW.

Only a matter of time for this guy, Beltran's wanted him out, Zeta's want him out, La Familia wanted him out, and the C.I.D.A, rag tag crew that it is. All fighting over Acapulco, not even a border city.

When CM took over, there was a faction of La Barbie's cartel that didn't side with him. They have been leaving him messages on bodies:

"This happened to us because we killed innocent people on the orders of Carlos Monte Mayor, Tilde Toribo, El Erizo and all those other bastards. ATTE El Cida p.s. This is going to happen to all the municipal police who support Carlos Montemayor, EL Erizo and Los Calentanos ATTE - C.I.D.A."

Carlos Montemayor is from Nuevo Laredo, and soon after Barbie's Capture, he and Brandon Balderrama "El Brandon" from Laredo Texas took over La Barbie's Gang but ended splitting up weeks later and ended up as rivals. This is what I was told from a very reliable source in Mexico City
