A top leader of the Los Zetas criminal organization in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas was detained following several shootouts in the border city Tuesday, according to the Secretaria de Defensa Nacional  (SEDENA) website.

SEDENA is the controlling agency for the Mexican Army

Carlos Alejandro Guiterrez Escobedo  AKA El Fabiruchis was detained by Mexican Army troops following Tuesday's three hour gun battle which killed six armed suspects.

Guiterrez Escobedo has been with the Los Zetas organization since 2006 and has functioned as a security chief for the organization when the group split from their former Gulf cartel employers.


Guiterrez Escobedo has been Los Zetas' chief in the Tamaulipas municipalities of San Fernando, Abasolo, Jimenez and Mante.

Guiterrez Escobedo is the brother of Salvador Alfonso Martinez Escobedo AKA La Ardilla, the alleged mastermind of one of the worst mass murders by the drug cartels, 193 people killed between August, 2010 and April, 2011 in San Fernando municipality.

Guiterrez Escobedo was the replacement for Geraldo Guerra Valdez  AKA El Guerra,  who was killed in a firefight with a Mexican Army patrol two weeks ago.

The top leader of Los Zetas in Nuevo Laredo, who is also Los Zetas' number two man, Miguel Angel Trevino Morales AKA  Z40, remains at large.  The detention of Trevino's security chief put Mexican security forces a step closer to dismantling the Los Zetas' prize territory, Nuevo Laredo.

  1. Bullshit. This guy was never Plaza head of abasolo or Jimenez. That was the plaza of x-6 before they became ghost towns. Anybody remember the shootout in Abasolo about 18 months ago on an early Friday morning? School sessions were about to start and out of the brecha between Abasolo and sota la marina came 20 zetas and they were gunned down in about 10 minutes. That was x-6. Saludos!

  9. allow the military group or police that catches cartel leaders to collect the reward and the leaders would fall very rapidly.
