On Monday afternoon, authorities from the Secretary of National Defense presented the recently captured Juan Carlos Olvera Acosta—better known as “El Sonrics”—to the media. El Sonrics was one of the top leaders of the criminal organization Los Zetas in the state of Nuevo León.
El Sonrics operated in the municipalities of Linares, General Terán, Allende, Montemorelos and Santiago, and was detained on Sunday along with some of his “business-partners,” including police officer Yesenia Elizabeth Bocanegra Garza and Víctor Manuel Ramos Garza in the town of Guadalupe.
The arrest occurred around 8:00 p.m. on Sunday and also led to the seizure of three rifles; a handgun; 19 magazines of ammo, 370 bullet cartridges; equipment for radio communication; cash; and a vehicle.
Reports indicate that El Sonrics was involved with with Los Zetas for a little over four years and is responsible for a number of violent acts carried out in Nuevo León.
