El Boxer Arrested
Juan Miguel Valle Beltrán, alias El Bóxer has been arrested today. The details of the investigation reveal a violent man with mental problems and sexually deviant nature, according to Julián Leyzaola Pérez, SSP for the state of Tijuana.
El Bóxer and his gang "los Chaneques" were surrounded by military personnel during their presentation to a group of journalists. Leyzaola Pérez stated that El Boxer, who was the lieutenant for “Güicho” Eduardo Guajardo Hernández, was a “mugrosillo” (scumbag) who wanted to be famous and had the blessing of the Sinaloa cartel.
When his former boss “Teo”, Eduardo Teodoro García Simental was arrested, he took his rogue contingent of sicarios and allied himself with Güicho and El Tomate, Jesús Israel de la Cruz López.
Valle Beltrán, has been fighting alongside Alfredo Arteaga (a) el Aquiles for control of the plaza. According to SSP Leyzaola, El Boxer “is a murderer who consumes 14 to 18 bags of crystal meth on a daily basis. This persistent drug use has caused him to be mentally unbalanced and develop a sexual deviancies, the extent of which includes an incident in which he abducted and raped of a 14 year old girl."
Leyzaola said the victim was later released by El Bóxer, who had escaped to previous attempts to capture him. After three months of police investigations, the sicario was located in a rural area of Rosarito. The ensuing gun battle led to the death of one cartel members.
Since the arrests, his crew has been giving the investigators statements that indicate El Bóxer was in charge of ordering executions and he would often decapitate targets himself. He was dedicated to eliminating the proprietors of rival "tienditas” (drug retail outlets) who were insubordinate to El Güicho. Once located, the victims were abducted or murdered on the spot. Often these people were dealing crystal meth.
This individual (along with el Güicho), is also a major source of corruption among local police elements.
The SSP went on to explain that it was difficult to say that “we are going to put an end to the cartels anytime soon." He did state however that the fight against organized crime was important “and even these events” show that the state is doing everything it can to combat the scourge of drug gangs.
“Now we have to move forward and go after these delinquents directly. We can't keep arresting them by sheer luck, or scrambling to find them after they have committed a series of crimes. I insist these arrests become the fruit of the labor of our investigations; such as this one. This will eventually lead us to Güicho."
“And now that these delinquents are going to whatever fate has in store for them... They can see they have no power over society or the government; we must treat them like the common criminals that they are, so that we may show society that the narcos are not invulnerable to justice."
El Ingeniero is not psychically here.
In Tijuana, the cells of the Sinaloa cartel maintain a strong presence. There are still remnants of the organization led by the Arellano Félix brothers. These groups are now controlled by “El Ingeniero” Fernando Sánchez Arellano, and although he doesn't stay in the city, it should be said that he controls most of it.
“He continues to control Tijuana by overseeing most of the drug shipments that are headed to the U.S. through his city. He has contracts with la Familia Michoacana, and although LFM's presence hasn't really been felt, they "paga lo que se llama piso," (they pay-to-play) for the privilege of operating in the area."
Leyzaola explained that although the arrest was significant, it didn't qualify as a "high impact" event against the criminal organizations. The smaller groups operating here will likely be fighting for positions now that there was a temporary vacuum of power.
Authenticity of the Pictures of El Inge Questioned Once Again.
On October 11 of last year, a vigilant reader of BB in the comments section gave us a link that showed vacation pics someone who resembles El Inge. We argued back and forth about whether or not it was him. A few days ago, some of the news agencies and the Mexican government got a look at the link and the debate continues. I won't bother translating the stuff they have written about it but here is the Pic off his wanted poster and the video for comparison.
Judge for yourself.
