Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

El Coss Captured?

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 |

Jorge Eduardo Costilla Sánchez, El Coss, was directing operations for the Gulf Cartel along with Mario Cárdenas Guillén, “El Gordo” who was arrested last week by Mexican authorities.

 There are reports coming out of Tampico Tamaulipas that Mexican Marines have captured Jorge Eduardo Costilla Sánchez, aka "EL Coss," leader of the Gulf Cartel.
Numerous Mexican media outlets as well as internet social networks have made reference to this possibility and El Coss is expected to be presented to the media tomorrow in Mexico City, that should enable the Mexican people to finally see El Coss.

The office of the Mexican Naval Intelligence or "Secretaría de Marina Armada de México" is claiming the capture was made without a single round being fired.

Jorge Eduardo Costilla Sánchez was born August 1, 1971 in Tamaulipas and was a former police officer in the city of Matamoros between 1992 and 1995. He was a Lieutenant (lugarteniente) for Osiel Cárdenas Guillén, and after the arrest of Osiel, Coss became a top capo.

CDG should never of trusted Chapo,he's a piece of shit.

Supposedly the NX military is turning up the heat on cartel bosses. And not to be a dick but it's "enable" not "unable" the Mexican people to finally see Coss. I'll believe it when I see it though. Sounds like government propaganda. They could've tracked him thru his contact with the guy they caught in Columbia because you know they were directly linked.

I think that accepting Z-50 "El Taliban to join forces was a bad idea from the Gulf Cartel now I also believe that Eduardo's capture is fake, Costilla being caught without a single shot? No fucken way when Tormenta was going to get captured the scorpions responded for him now Costilla had Cops, Military, and several groups protecting him and their was no shots. Something is about to go on now the CMDTE Diablo that was caught a while back is not the famous Diablo its some one else lets see what happens I think Mario Cardenas was the snitch since Costilla and Cardenas still had different groups operating for them this is really weird!

The Gulf Cartel will continue making billions a year in drug traficking because the next guy in line is waiting and as long as we consume a 100 billion dollars a year in drugs (#1 in world) they will never disappear and Mexico and all the Central American countries have to suffer the consequences from these powerful cartels.

Every one talkin about cds snitching are a bunch of wanna be know it alls sitting at home somewhere in the u.s.a that have no clue about how shit goes down out here in mex. Idiots stop believing everything you read... if coss got caught just like many of you have said CDG is not going anywhere there are plenty of top rank ppl still at large...

Anonymous said...

You want these guys caught and you ridicule a man who you accuse with no evidence whatsoever ?? How hypocritical is that!? The truth is you sick bastards get off on seeing these damn kids being slaughtered like dogs. We as America take no responsibility for our nation consuming all these drugs. We take no accountability that the only reason they're in Mexico is to get.them to our demanding generations. We sit in comfort and judge these people that most of the time have to choose between starving or deserting there families to try to get to America or selling drugs which would you pick?? I'd love to see you go from starving to the best of most and not kill to protect it. These people are wrong but so are we. Look what we did when alcohol was outlawed! Anyone can resort to this it's sad so if people have to snitch I praise them. Everyone taken easily is one less good marine police or federal agent lost. These people are sons daughter mothers fathers friends uncles husbands and wives. Have some damn respect not one person on here has lived a perfect life do fix your self before you demonize an oppressed people . I know some like diablo are just sick bastards but most would give it up in a heart best for a legal equivilant.

here is some real info..... costilla was not a leader he was just hiding from the metros he was protected by the mexican marines he was a enemy to zetas and to sinaloa cartel he was on the D.L since he took out SAMUEL FLORES BORREGO EL METRO 3 he lost power back in Sept, 2011 he was just a scared little fat rat

The capture is confirmed

Golfo does not make billions, not even CDS makes billions you have to understand that just because they get a 10,000,000$ load doesnt mean that's what they get, that's street level 50-70 gs a key in Mexico at a wholesaler like cds cdg etc it's between 4-8 gs a key. So that 10,000,000 Turns into less than 2 million not counting lost loads transport cops politicians ammunitions weapons trucks customization of the vehicles and security etc. Escobar only got to the billions numbers a few years before his death. A little $ goes a long way in Mexico do they net a billion?? Some years yes definitely not these past 6 years, but they'd be lucky to see 30% of that money and after all the moving and bullshit that's another 10% on a high estimate so 200,000,000 in the pocket is a fair estimate.

You people are so stupid thinking that Sinaloa snitch him out. What makes you people think that Sinaloa knew his whereabouts just because the were working together fighting Los Zetas. You people are acting like a bunch of little girls.

Fuck you! Everyone knows the code of the streets! Your probably some punk geek that runs when it gets tough. Only in Mexico is it cool to be a snitch. If he were ever locked up in population in the states with us he'd be ate alive. He's the only fagget that keeps turning on his own people and allies. It must be a huge coincidence that the only guy that hasnt is el miado! Trust me thanks to the second amendment he isnt slapping anybody.

Hey you fucking sheltered run of the mill punk. I ME MYSELF NOT MY UNCLE OR FRIENDS DADS CO WORKERS GARDENERS BROTHER, have done business in Mexico. YOU get your facts together Mexico is a part of the drug trade. Just because you pay 50$ a gram on the street which is probably out of your price range, doesn't mean CDG gets 50. A key costs 4000 in Mexico at the right time if you buy enough then the cycle goes on till you end up with a 60k brick of good that has been chopped to hell. If you would read what I wrote you would understand but being that you have probably never been in any kind of business I wouldn't expect you to understand how much $$ is lost from all the expenses. Back in the good old days a billion or two was possible with 365 24/7 distribution, but it's IMPOSSIBLE. In today's circumstances they have billions but in savings they dont net that anymore I did 6 years 5 months and 12 days In S.Q to know what I know, don't fucking correct me because you educate yourself by unofficial news stories.

@September 13, 2012 8:59 AM not really they say that cause some retarded people think chapo is a saint and is like another pancho villa. and they are trying to prove that chapo isn't a "hero" but a piece of crap who doesnt give a damn about people but making money. your probably a cheerleader of snitchaloa im a cheerleader for peace unlike you.

I already said something similar to fools who think this Coss has billions stashed away?You must be fuckin cracked,or have never sold even brick dust in your lives.This guy must have costs just to run his crew of security.Most people here never sold anything,done time,violence,fuckin anything,anyway im out.

@8:59 wrong!!!! i hate chapo because he broke the peace deal,his greed i believe has caused most of this bloodshed due too CDS pushing into other cartels territory. he is a tyrant in do what i say not what i do,he states he dont harm innocents thats are lie,he informs the dea of rival cartels movements and most likely his allies...yeah Chapo Snitchaloa.greedy filthy rat chapo.
