From this AM:
Yesterday Taliban was captured in San Luis Potosi (read post bey using hyperlink) . his presentation was this morning. The presentation is displayed on video below, I have extracted the criticial information given by the Mexican Marina here in the video narrative for the video at the bottom.
Information from SEMAR:
The Secretary of Navy Marines managed the arrest of Ivan Velazquez Caballero (a) "El Talibán" or "the Z-50", identified as regional head of "Los Zetas" in Aguascalientes, Zacatecas, Guanajuato and Coahuila, since 2007.However, Velazquez Caballero had challenged the second in command of "Los Zetas", Miguel TreviñoZetas", Miguel Treviño Morales aka Z-40", for control of the plaza de San Luis Potosí, because of that dispute “Z50” left the criminal organization and sought an alliance with the Gulf Cartel, according to information from the Secretariat of Navy SEMAR.
"The Taliban" or "the Z-50" was arrested last Wednesday, September 26, around 18: 35 hours, in the colony Tangamanga San Luis Potosí along with Manuel Antonio Guerrero, 27 years old, originally from Monterrey, and Carlos Uriel of Santiago Hernandez, 19 years old and originally from San Luis Potosí.
The three were brought before the media today Thursday September 27.
Vice Admiral José Luis Vergara, the Navy spokesman, confirmed the capture of Velazquez Caballero who was ratified as regional head of "Los Zetas" in the cited entities of Aguascalientes, Zacatecas, Guanajuato and Coahuila.
He explained that "some sources point out that the “ Z-50 "defied Zetas second maximum leader, Miguel Treviño Morales, initiating a struggle to individually control the square of San Luis Potosí, by which it is presumed that this challenge resulted in the recent execution of 14 of his supporters in San Luis Potosí, in the month of August this year".
A break between "the Z-40" and "the Z-50", separating the latter from "Los Zetas", in search of an alliance with the Gulf Cartel, according to the first investigations was given.
The capture of the "Z-50" was in follow-up to an investigation initiated last January, which showed the location of a home of this alleged criminal leader in the Tangamanga colony.
When the Marina arrived at the site, they were surprised to three armed subjects out in front of the property, but seeing them, they returned to the interior of the ranch.
SEMAR not only captured three suspects, they also secured 2 vehicles, a firearm long, 4 grenades, communication equipment, $ 20,000 in cash, 4 cell phones and 12 pounds of packaged marijuana.
Velázquez Caballero, now 42 years old and born in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, he began his criminal career at the age of 14 in his hometown, where he stole and sold auto parts.
At age 22 was imprisoned for theft of vehicles in the La Loma prison. He was sent to work with Heriberto Lazcano more than a decade ago and would later become a leader of "Los Zetas".
Later, he was appointed as Chief of plaza in Nuevo Laredo and later was in charge of Monterrey, which he oversaw from Fresnillo, Zacatecas, until the year of 2007, when he had 400 people under his command.
"Z-50" was also identified as the likely co-financial operator of "Los Zetas" even before their break and was also responsible for the activities of the organization money laundering as one of his responsibilities. .
"The Taliban" aka “Z-50", along with two other detainees were put at the disposal of the Public Ministry of the Federation affiliated to the Attorney of investagations of organized crime "SIEDO " for the corresponding investigations.
The capture of Velazquez Caballero, El Taliban, by the officers of Special Forces occurred yesterday at 6:35 pm, as a result of "naval intelligence job initiated since January of last year.
Taliban was alleged regional chief of the zetas in Zacatecas, Aguascalientes and parts of Guanajuato and Coahuila since 2007.
However, sources point out that Taliban defied the second maximum leader of the zetas, Miguel Trevino Morales, Z-40, which started a quarrel between them for the control of the square of San Luis Potosi, " which is presumed that, as a result of that challenge, the recent execution of 14 of his sympathizers in the capital of that state on august of this year, occurred."
That rupture caused Taliban to seek alliance with the Gulf Cartel. The video did not include the charges for Taliban. It just says that he has several previous investigations on offenses against health. (society)
