It appears the war of the mantas between” Z40” (Miguel Angel Trevino) and El Taliban (Ivan Velazquez Caballero) other monikers are; Z50, L50, and 50 has been halted. The Secretary of the Marina announced the capture of “Taliban”. The apprehension occurred today in the capital city San Luis Potosi in the state bearing the same name. Authorities report that he had been recently conducting criminal activities in Monterrey, in the state of Nuevo Leon.
Interesting is the fact that in the announcement the Marina stated that he was a leader of “Los Zetas” cartel, despite the recent indications, and narco manta declaring that he had left the cartel and joined the Cartel del Golfo (CDG), the archenemy of the Zetas. This was said to be from an internal conflict between Z40, another leader with greater status than El Taliban, and the captured narco.
Violence erupted several weeks ago in locations such as SLP, Zacatecas, and Torreon attributed to the conflict or possibly a conflict between Z40 and the other top leader of the Zetas Heriberto Lazcano Lazcano, aka"El Lazca".
No other information was given today other than the presentation will be in Mexico City in the coming hours, at that time certainly details will be released.
The reward offered by Mexico for information leading to the location of El Taliban was 30M pesos, no word if anyone will be collecting the funds.
