Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

Was Cartel Kingpin Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada Captured?

Saturday, May 26, 2012 |

Neglected War report:

There have been multiple rumors about the capture of Ismael “Mayo” Zambada, number two in the Sinaloa Cartel criminal organization.
The most formal source is Diario de Sinaloa, who states:
The Mexian Army managed to capture the leader of the Sinaloa cartel, Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada, in the town of Aguaje Sinloa,

The operation took place around 0700 Hrs. (Thursday). Zambada was captured along with several members of his bodyguards. Cocaine, guns, and cartridges were seized.

The Mexican Army transported the detainees from Sinaloa to the Office of Special Investigations for Organized Crime (SIEDO) in Mexico City. The prisoners will give their ministerial statements within 48 hours and their status will be defined. At that moment, they could be sent to a high security prison, or to a detention house for further investigation.
Update
Mexican Marines tried to corner Ismael “Mayo” Zambada in the limits of Sinaloa and Durango states, but were unable to catch him.
Official sources from the National Defense mention Zambada Garcia was able to escape through the mountains, together with at least another 10 people.
The Marines tried to hunt him from the air, but “ El Mayo” had vanished.
The event took place Thursday afternoon in the Mountains of Sinaloa. The operation, say authorities, "was close to being a success."
Note from Ovemex: Although the account of his capture and subsequent escape have been all over the internet, I, personally, have been unable to find any credible news agency report much less any statement by Mexico authorities or military to confirm or deny the facts.

One hundred million reasons why he escaped!!!!!!!no pun intended..........cash money rules the world......

Its like Roswell in 1947, first the have a UFO and then hours later when higher ups devise a plan they retract the entire story and say that they do not have a UFO... Same thing here... For what ever reason they do not want the public to know that he is captured, maybe it has to do with the election and the laws of the government not being able to use info such as that to influence people so close to voting? -CHIVO

I think they start these rumors just to make the cartel cheerleaders soil their skirts!!!!

i heard chapo and mayo are out of the country.. so im pretty sure this is just to help the elections..

He got away, what a coincidence..............yeah right. Can anyone spell corruption ???

I for one hate to admit that I am relieved if he did escape. In a billion dollar a year industry that is conceded to criminals and not going away soon thanks to prohibition laws in both countries, I would rather have it run by the quiet and more professional old timers than these crack heads running around kid napping people . I remember it used to be fun to go over the border from Az when I was a teen. Now you couldn't pay me to go to those places. Mayo and co were in biz then. The govt needs to sit down and figure out what's changed between then and now, and change it.

This story is a fairy tale. Him, Chapo, Coss, Lazca, el Azul, those are all buddies. They hang out like The Hangover movies. Américas most wanted actors,The murder is real, people are really dying. But the way the portray these flesh and bone humans is whats horrible, the narco corridos narco películas is what drives the uneducated people who live in poverty to make money by any means. Its easier to give an addict drugs than it is to help him get reahabilitated. Its all a psy-ops leading to civil war in México, where a massive influx of migrants will flee north, into the US where they will have a big facility to house them, make them work, factory line labor buiding parts for war.

I don't think they let him go, He just escaped. These guys have lived in those mountains for years, No one knows them better than them.

The cops are really the corrupt ones, You really can't play with those guys in the Army or Navy.

Anonymous said...

I agree with this.

This is why people like El Chapo, El Mayo, and El Azul so much.

Because these guys are old school.

Well he is the most powerful guy in the unite stayed & mexico hahaha

Supply and demand. He demanded to be free and he supplied the marines with money to let him be so. God bless the entrepreneurial spirit of Mexican law enforcement. If everything that you read is true, and it probably isn't, the Sinaloa cartel keeps the parts of Mexico where it rules, free from kidnappings and extortion by penalty of death. Not like the zetas. If its true, than they are the lesser of the various evils. But who knows if its true or not?
