The federal and state police of Nuevo Leon today dealt a huge blow to Miguel Angel Trevino Morales, El Z-40, second in command of Los Zetas cartel, arresting in different incidents; a money launderer of the criminal organization and his nephew.

In the first case, the Mexican Marines in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, apprehended Erick Jovan Lozano Díaz, El Cucho, alleged financial operator of Los Zetas, in possession of 41,111,650 pesos and more than a million in US currency.

According to the agency under the command of Admiral Francisco Saynez Mendoza, the detainee would be linked to the operations of Jose Trevino Morales, who was arrested in Oklahoma, United States, after being identified by U.S. authorities as a financial trader for the Zetas and is suspected of laundering about a million dollars a month through the sale of thoroughbred horses.

El Cucho was presented today to the press on the premises of the SIEDO. During the press conference, the Navy spokesman Jose Luis Vergara said that Lozano Díaz confessed to being the financial operator of Los Zetas, directly providing the money from illegal activities to Z-40.

He also confessed to owning a company dedicated to the import of vehicles, which charges a commission.

After his capture, which occurred yesterday in a safe house in Nuevo Laredo, authorities secured 36,111,650 pesos, plus $1,480,919  in US currency.

Elements of the Semar said that in the office where El Cucho was arrested they found another 5 million pesos, making a total of 41,111,650 pesos.

In addition to the large sum of money, police also seized 10 doses of cocaine, two handguns and 300 rounds of ammunition of different calibers, along with different firearms, a vehicle and computer equipment.

The SIEDO UEIORPIFAM/AP/148/2012 opened a preliminary investigation against Eric Jovan Diaz Lozano on charges of participating in organized crime with illegal procedures and crimes violation of the Federal Firearms and Explosives act. SIEDO requested a hearing with a judge to present a case and bring an injunction against the detainee to commence the investigation.



Another alleged associate of the Z-40 voluntarily surrendered to American justice. Veracruz entrepreneur Francisco Colorado Cessa, Pancho Colorado , who is appointed by the Treasury Department United States as a money launderer for Los Zetas through equestrian business, connected to the operations of Jose Trevino Morales, brother of the Z- 40.

Miguel Angel Trevino Morales and Heriberto Lazcano Lazcano directed the organization of Los Zetas, considered by authorities in Mexico and the United States as one of the most violent and powerful, with connections to criminal groups in Italy.

In another police action in the state of Nuevo Leon, the State Investigation Agency captured Juan Francisco Treviño Chavez, El Quico, nephew of Miguel Treviño Morales, El Z-40, who is second in command of Los Zetas.

El Quico leader of Los Zetas in Nuevo Laredo, was arrested with his cousin Jesus Chavez Garcia who heads the cartel in Sabinas Hidalgo and is one of the 141 inmates who escaped from prison in New Laredo on December 16, 2010.

At the time of his arrest in the parking lot of Plaza Rea in ​​the city of Monterrey, the detainees were carrying two rifles AR-15, a Beetle  and an  Avalanche

Treviño Chavez is wanted by U.S. authorities.

El Quico is the son of Juan Francisco Treviño Morales, brother of the Z-40 and the suspect that was recently arrested in the United States.

Also on Tuesday, another brother of the Z-40 , Jose was captured in Oklahoma, while another of the brothers, Oscar, Z-42 , is considered a fugitive from U.S. justice.

  6. I think that the one that snitched this guy was Jesus campos. He was the guy from Laredo that was on the run that was caught by la marina. I think he wasn't caught I think he was the one that called the US marshals on him self so he wouldn't look all gay and made a deal with the US I think he was a sindicato

  8. I have no firsthand knowledge of this war that's taking place in Mexico, I've just read for years on this subject and have my own private assessments. Its just amazing to me how money and violence parallel one another, they act as a catalyst to one another. Money is what speaks, when you have pocket change in the $10-15 mil of US currency and some more than others, or a ton of scama, either way that's $$ And from top to bottom foot soldiers hasta los jefes, do what you gotta do to make money, survive. I really don't give a fuck about these inocents that are caught at wrong place wrong time or these sicarios that cut off heads y todo (though I have true first hand knowledge of losing family y pos you see alot of tears I just wish their next of kin que life goes on that's that so what can you do?) But no sympathy, those are facts of life. I mixed money and violence due to this forceful assault by Guzman on Z40. Money is apparently talking cuz all of a sudden alot of Z40's structure is taking a desmadre. Idk what pissed off Chapo to start signing his name and start ordering car bombs and limb chopping, calling out the #2 Z. I think within the near future something drastic is gonna happen w a "capo" getting lit up by a drone or Marinas or caught by one or another due to Sinaloa/CDG vs Zetas just because I'm sure there are alot of political struggles in Mex that none of us have no clue about that have arisen due to Sinaloa v. Z. But once that happens, another cycle of violence is gonna take off and that could easily put another 30k bodies on their statistics. ? Never commented before just thought I'd share a somewhat modest opinion on literally a war in Mexico and the US to to an extent. If someone agrees w me that Z40 ain't sleeping at night or at least w a finger on the trigger at all times, then I accomplished my task. We'll see how it will all turn out sooner or later, money talks and bullets talk just as well. My thanks for allowing my opinion.

  14. The govt is really kickin the zetas ass.. Viva mexicoooo. I just pray and hope that once these fags are gone the killings stop. I hope the ones posting that tje zetas are the problem are right. Mexico deserves better. I've wanted to move back for a while. I can't trust these criminals i have a really bad feeling about the cartels never being able to control the maniacs they created. Once there is a an agreement of peace what are the sicarios gonna do?

    "I really don't give a fuck about these inocents that are caught at wrong place wrong time"

    Bro did I read that right? WTF kind of opinion is that?

    You've done research for "years" and this is what you've come up with?

  17. If they have sufficient evidence of these guys then they should just kill them on sight. Why show them any mercy? Would they show it to you?

  18. Wouldn't surprise me at all if Lazca got rid of him. He is attracting too much attention.

    ReplyDelete
  19. My thoughts exactly...

    ReplyDelete
  20. He may wish he stays in jail instead of getting out and facing the music from Z-40 and Lazca. That will be unpleasant.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Nuevo Laredo will definitely be heating up-just you watch. BTW Good story. I didn't see this one before

    ReplyDelete
  22. Good job Mexican Marines get this trash of the streets one at a time they will all go down

    ReplyDelete
  23. I wonder if Lazcano does a good job at keeping a low profile or if he has been edged out of making the major decisions. You rarely hear a thing about him any more.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I guess the military divide up the money among themselves or give it to the cartel they are working for once the media leaves.

  25. Mid-level and some high level Z's are shifting residential locations now. Do not want another week like last week-detentions lead to more detentions like falling Zeta dominoes

  26. "He also confessed to owning a company dedicated to the import of vehicles, which charges a commission."

    Yes for $600 yu can import ANY car from the USA. No police check. This is a cover for stolen car operations.

  35. This particular story is just another small tile placed into the big mosaic picture what is developing in the US, Mexico, CA and SA.

    In time, we will forget the suffering, deaths, people, and particulars as new problems and to issues arise to push it into the heap of lost memories.

    While this particular "tile" is fascinating and useful for many purposes, I am curious about the Big picture. Standing back, I can dimly sense the "Big picture" and see other tiles that seem logically connected. But, what most disturbs me are those tiles that are show connected relationships into corrupt, quasi-corrupt, and sanitized activities such as those in business, money laundering, political corruption, law enforcement and judicial, drug abuse / mental health, the media, etc.

    One major concern from my POV, is that the US and Mexico are caught in a mutually destructive Calaca type "Dance of Death" to the tune of people addicted to drugs and money.

    What I am driving at is that America has a huge appetite for "illicit" psych "meds" and is willing to buy them at any cost even if getting them creates misery and bloodshed elsewhere.

    Finally, Since the early 1980s America has drifted into a state of tolerance for drug addicts, in part, due to the medical model of drug abuse ... which defines addicts as "sick" (and not anti-social deviants to be ashamed of). This attitude change has even made going to treatment fashionable and not stigmatizing.

    Using psycho-active illicit drugs like heroin, cocaine, meth, pot, pharmaceutical, etc. and getting hooked is hardly a moral issue anymore. There is no shame (so to speak) in being a drug addict. This pervasive American attitude contributes greatly to the consumption of addicting drugs .... which Mexico (and others in the Third World) jump into supply.

    And, in this Calaca "dance of Death" there is the huge "Drug Abuse Treatment" industry raking in many millions of dollars to (ineffectively) treat and re-treat "sick" drug addicts.

    So there you have it. I see the tiles forming a picture of a sleazy barrio bar where Gringo and Raza come to dance to hot and sweaty narco-corridos while outside in the streets and alleys miserable people die to maintain the system that keeps the bar open, the musicians and bar, pimps and whores, cops, lawyers, car dealers, horse breeders, movie makers, weapons dealers, churches, morgues, politicians, and Santa Muerte busy.
