El Mayo Zambada's bad night




He felt the Army close, "right over my head" Said el Mayo , but was able to flee.

That dusky afternoon Ismael Zambada Garcia was more restless than usual. His instinct as a man of the mountains notified him that things didn't look so good in the southern hill of Culiacán.

The guards passed him reports that was repetitive in the last couple days, mobilized Army was traveling through the zone. The soldiers installed camps through the helicopters that carried them and supplies.

"Choppers are very active", his people reported to him. "stay focused and ready", he ordered them.

The noise of the military helicopters arrived occasionally to the refuge. El Mayo Zambada's senses intensified when the silence permitted it, some nearby sounds caused him to know that things didn't look well.

And as the ridge began to darkened they received a radio notice that soldiers were near the den. "Leave, they're on you".

Some how, the troops approach el Mayo. Mocking the multiple circles of security that spread around the boss. In highways, roads, paths, hills and thickets were men "sow" themselves, some armed, others disguising them self with the environment. Watching the vanguard and the rearguard of the leader of Sinaloa's cartel.

With little time to decide the elusion, they started hearing the motor of helicopters. They were on their trail in the dark of night, disembarking a commando of masked military men. The branches of trees and abundant bushes protected them. Mayo with three of his bodyguards walked in the half-light, a reflection of survival told him to walk toward the shadows where it was darker.

Feeling the boots of the soldiers stepping their heels. The shouts of "¡There they are, there they go!" and the deafening crash of the propellers breaking the wind. It opted for running while taking cover, grasping the land and seeking that nothing betrayed him, not even the creak of branches.

Immediately after half an hour of running for the hills, the calm arrived. The stealth continued for two or three hours more. Walking on rocks, shrubs and avoiding the branches of mesquites. Not saying one word that could betray them before the almost sure presence of soldiers in the area.

Without knowing where they're going or where they're at, they kept moving to a fast pace. Already without gas the only compass they carried was the foreboding that continued their control to move on and aware that some of the gunmen knew of the situation, were already seeking to find them.

Mayo ordered to turn off the radios and to put the cell phones on vibrate, but without answering the calls. They spoke in a low voice and codes, was the necessary thing for transmitting vital instructions for them.

Directing that he desired going to the height of a community whose name he mentioned. "There we got people that will help us escape". They didn't know the exact place of the location. Almost midnight, they saw the lights of a town. "Lets go there to seek someone that will guide us", they agreed.

While seeking out a man that knew the sierra like the palm of his hands. They found him not to old to bear the walk but not to young either, someone that knew the exact route to escape. "Get us out of here how ever you can and we're going to correspond very well", they told him.

They walked without stopping while the Army of personal security for el Mayo organized the search, inch by inch on the outsides of Culiacán bordering with Cosalá. His top gunmen had already ruled out that soldiers had captured their leader. Also Vicente Zambada Niebla, El Vicentillo, position an up to date with the circumstance in which his father was found. Placed himself in the front of operation to locate him.

Just as el Mayo came upon jumping streams, climbing up and down hills. El Vicentillo asked himself, did they go south of Culiacán? What had failed with the contacts in the Army, Police and the widespread of guards by routes and key points close to the den.

"What a way to begin the year", acknowledge the leader of the Sinaloa cartel, recalling the beginning of 2009.

It was already seven in the morning of the following day when they spotted the population where they wanted to arrive. Their spirit changed, they felt insurance and although the cellphones didn't have a signal by radio they began speaking to their gunmen and family. "We are well, they're coming for us". As for the guide they thanked him and offered to seek him out, to reward him for his service. "Who serves el Mayo gets rich", one of the bodyguard commented him.

And yes, el Mayo escaped from being captured by the Army's Elite Forces sent directly from the Office of the secretary for the National Defense. They would find out later, that the guide received a gift of fortunes.

To this, Ismael Zambada refers it in the encounter that he maintained with the journalist Julio Scherer, in which gives account the magazine Process in its edition 1744:

—¿Have you felt the Army close? —Four times, el chapo more.

—¿Really close? —Up, over my head. I fled for the hills, the one where I know the branches, the streams, the stones, everything. They get me if I stay still or become careless, As for el chapo, if we meet today, I come from far and as soon as we finish, I leave.

  1. it will be huge news when or if he gets caught. but my guess is that he has so much money that if he does he will (supposely escape) just like el chapo.

  5. The war on drugs is a going along as planed, it's not to ever be won but to maintain the economy, billions of dollars are spent fighting the war but more importantly is the jobs it creates, the DEA , ATF , border patrol, prison staff..........
    Yes this is a good war and we the cartels to continue and we will make sure they have the arms they need to bang it out against each other, we also need to stop as many drugs as possible and take as much money as they can, it was never meant to win only maintain it.

    Nice translation....I wonder if they actually did give the person who help them escape a lot of money.

    Funny thing is you never know when the FBI or DEA will come to get you. Good luck righteous capo.

  11. El Macho Prieto is still part of the Sinaloa Cartel! He had a corrido written called "Sigo Con La Misma Bandera" when rumors got started about him leaving the Sinaloa Cartel to join another.

  14. It's amazing how these top tier criminals take on a mythical "robin hood" like status...how even this article paints "El Mayo" as a kind, generous, caring, fearless leader and perhaps, there in lies the problem. Make no mistake, "El Mayo" is a murderer and he has destroyed countless lives, all in an effort to add to his fortune. As interesting as this "turd's" stories might be..he is no hero! A real man..does the right thing regardless, how tough the road to righteousness may be.. a real man values all life and looks after his "brother." A real man has pride in the way he lives his life not by the material things he has gained! No.."El Mayo" is no hero but a coward, who's days are numbered.."Vaya con Dios."

  16. I don't understand some peoples logic. On one hand they go "the war on drugs is a sham and used to create jobs in the DEA, FBI, prisons, blah blah blah" and on the other hand they go "all the government does is screw over its people and all it wants is money from taxes", so which is it? Does the government go through elaborate methods to create jobs, or does it rape its people? And why do both?

  19. This story may be true, some facts maybe slightly changed. But Don Zambada did admit being too close for comfort a few times in regards to the army hunting him down. He has power and billions and I questions his money and power versus Don Guzmans money and power at times just out of curiosity. There have been many to say that Don Mayo works for nobody and Don Guzman is not his boss and I believe it. More of a mutual share of the cartel with El Azul. There is a reason why Don Mayo rolls low profile and his power extends far as the dirty business he strives in like it or not feeds thousands. It's a dirty business but if it wasn't him doing it's someone else. He is in his late 60's in age and I don't see him going to jail if his number gets called. He would go out old school guns blazing. In regards to the old school narcos left it's only him Don Mayo, Don Chapo Guzman, El Senor Azul who again holds alot of power himself and highly regarded in the underworld, el H, el Vincentillo and from there no one else has been in the game as long as these guys. Decades they have been doing what they do. 40+ billion plus a year business and they have always had a piece of that cake, do the math. These guys have plenty of paper but they can't and won't stop what they do for a living. It's what they know they know and succeed at. Just like any businessman that strives for more these guys are no different. It's only turned very ruthless these days with no regard to human life. In Mexico la vida no vale nada compas.

  20. The original Macho Prieto was tortured and killed years back. Is this one you are discussing any relation to the one killed in 2008? If so what, what was the rumor of his defection and to what Cartel?

    ReplyDelete
  21. The Macho Prieto you mention is the one who worked for the Beltran Cartel? That guy was killed on order of Arturo himself from rumors. There have been several Macho Prieto. The one and infamous guy they are talking about is Gonzalo Inzunza plaza leader for Don Mayo Zambada. He was once his head security personnel had the clash with federales in Sonora where he supposedly by himself and another guy with bazooka in hand took them out one by one on a high speed chase. Corridos have made him well known and he is a shadow of a character not many pics of him. He supposedly controls Sonora and parts of Sinaloa with his guys controlling Mexicali. Rumors said that he switched from Sinaloa to Beltran cartel but it was all BS. He would never leave the hand that fed him, they swear an oath to Don Mayo and he who betrays well you know, heads roll.
    Just sayin,,,,

  22. You know this whole cartel stuff is crazy could you just imagine amado carillo fuentes hanging out with chapo guzman,mayo zambada,the beltran leyva brothers,el azul all when they were young and barely getting started.How do you guys think they all organized themselves into practically spreading all over the country,and becoming highly organized drug trafficking groups? These guys as little kids probably had an incredibly amplified vision on how to organize things to keep running and moving(drugs).Either way these guys always had some big boss help them out like in chapos case probably pedro aviles,and the rest,azul,mayo,beltran leyva brothers,all at one time worked for amado carillo fuentes .

    ReplyDelete
  23. You know that whole separation between el macho prieto from his boss mayo zambada could be true,i mean lately the beltran leyvas have been taking zero bullshit from chapo in the states of sinaloa,nayarit,and sonora.Eventhough they have always operated in those areas,they are showing more muscle then usual.But until its 100% comfirmed then thats when i will believe it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. @1:39 Mostly everything you said was right except for the old school drug dealers.Yes the old school drug dealers are: "el chapo","el mayo",the beltran leyva brothers,incluiding hector,"el H",the current leader,and vicente carillo fuentes "el Viceroy",but not "el vicentillo" hes zambadas son hes not old school.I dont know about CDG if they got any old school guys,I think Coss but im not sure.

  25. Where is the video of marines vs zetas taken by a marine?

  26. Hell, there isn't any other old school players because your "Don Chapo" snitched them all out. Now thats a hell of a gangster isn't it. I wonder who taught him that trick? My God, y'all are acting like a bunch of children that got told a bed time story. Damn !!! Hell, the police came and he ran, lol, big deal.

    @ August 24, 2011 5:25 PM probably pedro aviles,and the rest,azul,mayo,beltran leyva brothers,all at one time worked for amado carillo fuentes.

    Pedro Aviles was the first generation of major Mexican drug smugglers and he died on September 15, 1978 Amado Carillo Fuentes was like 22 years old.
    Amado Carillo Fuentes started working under his uncle Ernesto Fonseca Carrillo sometime between 1982 or 1986. Ernesto Fonseca Carrillo is from the Second generation of drug traffickers and Amado Carillo Fuentes is from the third generation. Chapo Guzman started with Pedro Aviles.

  31. Ive noticed now most ppl are hating on chapo because hes a snitch, he snitched el mochomo out,el teo,nacho coronel and who knows who else but if you guys were in his place their is really nothing better,i mean he has an agreement with the US,he makes mad money and doesnt have to trip about the law bringing him down,his real threat are his enemies.What im trying to say is whats better then having the US or mexican goverment helping you out,because if what vicentillo said its true then US basically lets chapo and his cartel bring drugs in.Obviously the US allowed this,only if theirs something in it for them,$$$$$$$,those americans are smarter then how they look.

  32. 2:11 so pretty much you're ok with snitching?If you were a man you would know never to snitch!even if it's your enemies!

    ReplyDelete
  33. None of that is substantiated, in any kind of meaningful way. The only rumor with SOME kind of credibility is the Alfredo Beltran one, but all that Teo and Coronel is all just gossip and bullshit.

    Good story, wish we had more like it, the insight into these guys daily lives.

  34. Although I don't doubt involvement from American agencies for clearance of drugs for some cartels if not all. Some how they find ways to push the product acrross. What el Vicentillo is doing is risky on his end. He is either lying or telling the truth but what has come to light has only brought me heat on their cartel in my opinion. Now with all the limelight of CDS being blessed by DEA agents to push weight with no worries it makes restrictions harder right now. Not everyone agent is corrupt but now the corrupt ones have something to worry about. People are going to be accountable for it. But makes me wonder how this helps him and his cartel and what Don Mayo and Don Chapo think about this strategy? Or was it blessed by them in the first place?

    Interesting comment. It is already written. All of the major cartel bosses have come from Sinaloa and The Golden Triangle. The original cartel was from Guadalajara and now has become The Sinaloa Cartel.

    The government won't even try to enter The Golden Triangle, where it is known to be a place of harvesting marijuana. And the military and police who enter that area are paid by the cartels which means that they are integrated into the cartels.

    The Mexican government and the American government both know this and are assisting The Sinaloa cartel and El chapo. They understand that only one true cartel can exist and that there will be much bloodshed but in the end, it will be the Sinaloa cartel that will be standing. El chapo needed a strong route system in order to gain ultimate power and Juarez is his connection to major U.S. distribution.

    And the U.S. is like a money hungry prostitute with it's legs wide open, welcoming El chapo to enter as long as he acts professional and pays good money.

    All of the other cartels who act recklessly and extremely violent, won't last in the end. El chapo will be the one who is laughing in the end. He has worked too hard as a snitch and backstabber and informant to just give away the Juarez plaza.

    He will only win this war, which will last for many more years, because of the assistance of the U.S. and Mexico.

    One Big Happy Family

  36. @ 3:34 Hey you gotta do what you gotta do,think about it like this if your enemies had the chance to snitch you out,You think they wouldnt?Its a billion dollar game,im pretty sure they would.

  37. Well, I know what happens to patsies used by our U.S. government...they end up dead or out of the picture. Adolf Hitler: helped U.S. corporations gain wealth before during and after WW2 and ends up dead or missingm, President Diem: He helped U.S. go into Vietnam and then ends up assassinated permitted by the U.S., Manuel Noreaga: traded drugs for guns and then ends up arrested by U.S., Sadam Hussein: traded weaponry for info on Iran and then ends up hanged by the U.S., Osama bin Laden: works for the CIA and then ends up dead or missing, Gaddafi: etc. etc. So whean all is said and done you will find El Chupis planking off a cliff looking over the beautifu Sierra Madre.
