358 kilos of cocaine seized in Tijuana

358 kilograms seized in Tijuana


In the largest seizure of this year to date, more then a quarter ton of cocaine was found by SEDENA (Secretary of National Defense) , based on a citizens complaint in Otay Mesa, Tijuana, near the border crossing. These type of seizures based on the help of citizens have become common in Tijuana. Groups of criminals cells operating in the city, engaging in trafficking, kidnapping, and extortion are often arrested because of phone calls made to the authorities due to suspicious activity. It has become an essential tool in seizures and arrests in the city.

One vehicle with Baja plates, and 22,430 dollars in US Currency were seized as well, but not arrests were made, and no mention of who the shipment belonged to were made available to the public. Less then two weeks ago a similar operation captured 232 kilograms of cocaine, and one man, allegedly in the service of the Sinaloa Cartel. It's probable that the drugs seized today also belonged to Sinaloa, as these kinds of operations have become commonplace in Tijuana, as criminal groups in the service of cartels have returned to trafficking at a higher level, then in previous years, as larger and larger amounts of cocaine and marijuana are intercepted before crossing the border. Those responsible for the cocaine may have fled moments before authorities arrrived, due to broken tiles found on the roof of the house. Many of these complaints stem from witnesses viewing packages being loaded into vehicles, or carried from homes, as is probably the case here.

Because of the way it was presented, and the location found, it's likely this shipment was to be sent across the border, and not used for domestic sales in the city. A portion of a shipment like this would remain in San Diego and surrounding counties, with a majority headed for destinations like Los Angeles, and further north. Also, the cocaine had not yet been processed, or 'cut', further indicating it was headed across the border. Across the city violence continues, there have been 8 murders in the last three days, including an incident in Playas de Tijuana where during a party, gunmen rushed the home, and fired on the guests and the house itself. One was wounded, but there were no deaths.

    Really? A brick for yourself?
    Attitudes like yours are part of the problem.
    Let's take a stand AGAINST drugs like cocaine, not encourage it.

    You are an idiot! I bet you drink a case of beer and smoke a pack of cigarettes each and every day! But you feel that those are not drugs so you think of yourself as a patriotic American. What a crock of shit people like you are to talk about taking a stand against drugs.

    Attitudes like yours are causing all of the problems because the stupid governments have not opened their eyes and reaized that to keep some drugs (cocaine, marijuana, herion, etc.) illegal while others (beer, whiskey, cigaretts, etc.) are legal but "restricted" is plain stupid and illogical. If someone wants to get "high" they can buy paint thinner, glue, gasoline and many other items that will provide a short term fix for their need to get "high"! And nothing you nor the government can nor will do is going to change their mind. So making a statement like "Let's take a stand AGAINST drugs like cocaine, not encourage it." is a statement showing your stupidity to the world. Think before you post your comments because there are intelligent people who read BB and some of the comments that are posted here after the articles.

    I agree that using cocaine is bad but there are other drugs which the governments have legalized and these "legal" drugs cause more problems worldwide than all "illegal" drugs combined. So get with the program of using your brain for the purpose of thinking and not just making idiotic statements.

    In my opinion if you want to eliminate a lot of the violence associated with the selling of "illegal" drugs then the governments need to change the laws so that they are the ones regulating these sales and making the lions share of the profits. This will eliminate a lot of the violence because there will not be a need for people to buy their "illegal" drugs from someone who has an AK-47 around his shoulder. The typical "illegal" drug seller uses guns for protection because he cannot go to the police when he has a problem for fear of arrest.

  8. This isjust like that huge marijuana plantation seized and burned like 6 months ago in the tijuana area. If I'm not mistaken, it was the biggest marijuana bust in mx history. This load was huge alot of people are going to die unfortunately over this seizure. Everytime huge shipments are caught, they usually belong to chapo or mayo since they have a truce with arellano felix organization in tijuana, I doubt any other drug cartel is stupid enough to hide that much in enemy territory

    Maybe this is what happens when someone doesn't paga plaza. Just like that semi truck too, and all those other seizures.. CAF is a dto, why haven't they seized any of their shipments? Or you guys think they aren't involved in trafficing drugs? LoL. Bless Ingeniero for the peace that he has brought to his city.

  15. Whatever they seized would be crossed in 20's or 40's maybe even tens. I think the seizure will be given back. But many agents and military officials will be given a nice cut. The organization responsible will have to modify their distribution structure to keep everything away from the public eye.

  16. What really caught my attention in this story is the observation that, " ...Groups of criminals cells operating in the city, engaging in trafficking, kidnapping, and extortion are often arrested because of phone calls made to the authorities due to [citizens’ reports of ] suspicious activity. It has become an essential tool in seizures and arrests in the city."

    Here we have another encouraging example of citizens' "constructive" activism in combating crime. Apparently, the tortilla has flipped from the old days when good Mexicans kept quiet or even tolerated or abetted drug trafficking crimes aimed at gringos. Now, with all kinds of costs and hurts by cartels and the ruthless criminals it spawned that Mexicans now realize they raised a Mexican Frankenstein.

    The various acts of citizen activism and even violent vigilantism (still hard to document, verify, or study) in Mexico is encouraging... But, this will only work if politicians and others in power support, terminate their complicity (however defined or distorted as in money laundering, frauds, etc.)with criminals.

    So, to me, the bust and the one two weeks before, are happy indicators that decent Mexicans want their wonderful civilization back.

  17. I laugh when I read that someone called in because they are a concerned citizen. They know who runs mexico and its not the SEDENA!!!!! This bust is to show that they making a dent in the drug war and they are doing there job. Question for all of you how many tons of cocaine make it to U.S.???? Its alot!!!!

  18. If I had to guess, I'd say Sinaloa, it just fits the profile of recent arrests/seizures definitively linked to them. La Familia has been caught with some heavy amounts of product too, but less then this, and CAF, there shipments (assuming the exist) are almost never intercepted, or it is never publicized. They may coordinate with Sinaloa though, and I remember reading that for awhile El Inge didn't work at all at drugs, just was collecting plaza.

  19. Noel Salgueiro 'el Flaco Salgueiro was arrested. Now I will like to see what people will say about Calderon not arresting Chapos people.

  20. This could be as simple as a token bust for media attention on the War on Drugs as they ship 9 more just like it through. Usually it is back in the hands of the owner in 2 weeks or in the hands of another cartel. At $25,000 a kilo, nobody is going to burn it. It could even be someones up the chains cut and will be replaced with sugar and burned on public display. The media will be held at a distance of course.

  28. 12 52 Your a idiot idolizing a dying cartel. Most of la baja is cds. There loosing influence without a fight

    ReplyDelete
  29. @12:52 r u serious? CAF is a bunch of faggots that bow down to CDS...The only reason they exsist is because CHAPO prefers buisness over war. Everyone knows an ultimatum was given either they give up control and collect thier nickels and dimes comission or loose thier heads. Chapo even got rid of that scumbag el teo and his cells. Also el inge did not bring peace to tijuana.Chapo did...just like he has in every other place CDS has control.

  30. @J true CDS is the one passing the most drugs and they rarely get touched/intercepted, LFM in like 09 was getting busted with tons of Meth and Coke but they have gone down in that and Arellano is now just taking the job of playing landlord to other cartels CDS, CT , and independent traffickers

  31. @ 8:01 so are you in favor of legalizing drugs? On a side note I found the comment about drug Sellers using guns,AK-47, for protection hillarious.
