Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

Jesús Enrique Rejón Aguilar, "el Mamito", is captured

Monday, July 4, 2011 |


Federal Police capture Jesús Enrique Rejón Aguilar, alias "el Mamito", a principal leader and original member of "Los Zetas" and third in command of the organization.

In a press release this morning the Ministry of Public Security (SSP) reports that Federal Police agents captured Jesus Enrique Rejon Aguilar, one of the leaders and founders of "Los Zetas”, in the town of Atizapan de Zaragoza, Estado de Mexico yesterday, Sunday July 3.

Rejon Aguilar "El Mamito” is identified as third in the hierarchy of Los Zetas, under the command of Heriberto Lazcano "el Lazca" and Miguel Angel Treviño Morales "el Z-40."

According to the SSP Rejon Aguilar’s arrest is the result of intelligence generated from various operations undertaken by Federal forces. His arrest order was for the investigation of drug trafficking and the attack on U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents which occurred February 14 of this year in Santa Maria, San Luis Potosi, where ICE agent Jaime Zapata was murdered.

El Mamito is also suspected of ordering a high number of executions in Northeastern Mexico.

Rejon Aguilar was among the most wanted criminals by the Mexican Government, and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) had a reward of 5 million dollars for information leading to his arrest and/or conviction.

It is expected that the U.S. will request the extradition of Rejon Aguilar who is wanted in the U.S for drug trafficking under a 2008 Federal indictment in the District of Columbia.

On April 3, 1993, Jesus Enrique Rejon Aguilar entered the Mexican Army in his home state of Campeche and in 1996 was assigned to Special Forces Airmobile Group (GAFE). In 1997, he was assigned to the Mexico’s Federal Attorney General's Office (PGR) as Agent "C" in the cities of Reynosa and Miguel Aleman in Tamaulipas. In 1998 he was assigned to Saltillo, Coahuila.

El Mamito deserted in February 1999 and in March the same year, at the invitation of Arturo Guzman Decena, known as "The Z1", was integrated into the "Group of 14" (los 14) who founded "Los Zetas" as the armed wing of the "Gulf Cartel”.

This group, also known as first generation Zetas, was composed of, among others, Arturo Guzman Decena, known as "Z-1", who died in 2002; Alejandro Lucio Morales Betancourt, “Z-2", arrested in 2001; Heriberto Lazcano Lazcano, "El Lazca", current leader of the organization; Mateo Díaz López, "Z-6", incarcerated in 2006; Jesus Enrique Rejon Aguilar, “el Mamito”; Oscar Guerrero Silva, "Z-8", who committed suicide; Omar Pitalúa Lorméndez, "Z-9" detained in 2005: and Efraín Teodoro Torres "Z-14", who died in 2007.

Rejon Aguilar’s first criminal activities were providing protection for the safe houses of Osiel Cardenas Guillen, then head of the Gulf Cartel, where money, drugs and weapons were stored.

After winning the confidence of Cárdenas Guillén, Rejon Aguilar was assigned the responsibility for the safety of his family.

After the capture of Osiel Cardenas Guillen in 2003 Los Zetas, led by Heriberto Lazcano Lazcano, assumed a higher position in the structure of the "Gulf Cartel" assuming greater responsibilities and conducting independent criminal activities in areas where the Gulf Cartel was present.

At that time Jesus Enrique Rejon Aguilar, alias "The Mummy" allegedly participated in the following offenses:

◦ The escape of Daniel Perez Rojas “el Cachetes”, Deyanira Flores, Manuel Alquicires García "El Loco Meme" and Enrique Gonzalez Rodriguez, all alleged members of the Gulf Cartel, from a prison in Matamoros, Tamaulipas on December 27, 2002.

◦ Clashes against the Sinaloa Cartel in 2004 and 2005 in the states of Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas.

◦ In 2004, attempted to carry out the escape of Osiel Cardenas Guillen from the Altiplano prison.

In 2007 Rejon Aguilar was assigned to the streets of Nuevo Laredo and Miguel Aleman under the command of Miguel Angel Treviño Morales, “Z-40", where he remained until early 2009.

After the rupture between the "Gulf Cartel" and "Los Zetas" in 2010, Jesus Enrique Aguilar Rejon, was assigned as the regional coordinator in the states of central and northern Mexico.

Rejon Aguilart was arrested along with Pedro Ortega Herrera, 32-year-old native of Mexico City, identified as an active police official with the Ministry of Public Security in Mexico City. Ortega Herrera was responsible for providing security and support for Rejon Aguilar during travel to the state of Campeche.

Maybe if the Mexican people had access to weapons (no hanks to Luis Echeveria who as president decreed as gun laws). I wonder if Madonna wouls sing "Llora por Mexico"?

It's repetitive , but each opportunit y to say it again is welcomed. One thing above all else fuels the drug lords and the killings, and every moment of every day it stares in the face. It is our drug laws pure and simple that causes the price of drugs to sky rocket, which in turn makes officials more corrupt, the dealers wealthy and more murderous. The cartels love our drug laws. And why not; they're making billions of dollars because of them. Despite the best efforts of drug enforcers, our drug laws don't work, can't work and won't work, period. Everyone knows it, but our political leaders and legislator s are pathetical ly paralyzed as no one has the intestinal fortitude to speak the truth! How absurd and scary is this in a free country? If these laws were repealed (except for minors), drug prices would plummet, dealers would find honest employment or starve, users would clean up their act or overdose and die, and the money now thrown away on futile enforcemen t could be spent on rehabilita ting those who sincerely want to be rehabilita ted. Our hope has to be that our political leaders at all levels will eventually be shamed into correcting this never-endi ng scandal.

Ya gotta give the Mexican govt. credit. They sure know how to stage a PR event to get more DEA money. Just look at the time and effort that went into "packaging " those guns in cardboard boxes.

JajajajJAja.... Yeap... The beat goes on... I WAS CHILLING THIS MORNING IN MONTERREY... On Julian Villagran... Mucho carne asado and indios.... Yeap

As long as the United States remains, at its core a violence-based society, it will continue to train the next Los Zetas or Osama Bin Laden. Human Beings are fickle, one day they are friend, the next day foe. With training on how to kill, maim and destroy, it comes back to haunt you.

Those who live by the sword
die by the sword

Those who use violence as a means to and end
become the ends of violent means

The United States is good at great complexities
but not simple truths.

They are working their way up with the Zeta's, mid level plaza bosses, accountants, etc etc. This is a pretty big catch right? I mean, this guy could have info on Z40 and Lazcanco. Funny, the guys who were going back and forth with the narco messages are all finished now. Tocayo y Mamito.

Traveling with a policeman?

that explains everything that is wrong in Mexico.

Send him over to the US or he will escape in 6 months.

A weak judiciary system does not have the laws to keep someone like him in jail.

"cartels seem to get a ton of blows all around except for sinaloa? wtf"

Could it be that Sinaloa isn't killing, kidnapping, extorting, robbing, and raping innocents? They are going after the cartels who are wrecking havoc on innocents first. Why eliminate Sinaloa first just to have Los Z take over?

I have a theory for bbreaders isn't it ironic that once they killed the ice agent now the mexican government knows where all the zetas were before that they were untouchable dwell on that?

@ 3:54 I'm sorry but I fail to see who what you wrote is either a theory or ironic.

@ the july 4 3:51pm posting

even if the cartels lost their lucrative market of selling illegal drugs they would not go back to earning money the way most of us do. there is still money to be made by them thru kidnappings, extortions, weapons trafficking, human trafficking, prostitution, pirated cd/dvd sales, etc.

Good. Another psychopathic, violent leader of the Zetas is captured. You will not be missed, el Mamito. I wish he got the death penalty for killing people...

Next is el Lazca (if he's not already dead) and Z-40...

Anonymous said...

Once they kill el Lasca all hell would break loose. They will split up and infighting will bring them all down. Zetas and juarez are the only cartels that hasn't had a rebel group. Beltranes, cabalos templar, cdjng,teos group, barbies group. They've all splintered from there original group

Anonymous said...

@ 2:07
You're forgetting that Los Zetas sit from Cartel del Golfo so they infact are a " splinter group"

Let me translate for the idiot that said he don't understand theory or ironic it means the mexican government knows where all of them are and unless the usa demands them then they will get em the mexican government let's them operate understand that!

@7/4 11:40PM,

FYI, La Barbie was deported back to the U.S. a short time after his capture. He is a U.S. citizen and is currently being held in a undisclosed Federal facility, where he is said to be cooperating with U.S. authorities. He is not roaming free in Mexico eatin corn flakes, as you put it..

I think mamito will talk and rat out his buddies and then they will all be one big happy family in Jail. They should send them to the united states and give them all lethal injections and do it as a pay per view. I'm sure a lot of people would pay to see that!

I guess if all americans would stop using / consuming drugs.. Mexico wouldnt had this problem.
and also.. how many drug cartels or drug lords do we know in the US? or they are non?
or is the police, border patrol and the rest controlling everything? mmmmm... mexico should do the same, at lease the police would have nice salaries and would have more control..
just a thought..
