El Molca: My name is Ramiro Pozos González I was born April 7, 1970. I'm originally from Guadalajara, Jalisco.
Official: What's your nickname?
El Molca: El Molca or El 7
Official: What organization do you belong to?
El Molca: Milenio
Official: When did you enter into that organization?
El Molca: I always worked with my compadre. Milenio started like in 2000 after the capture of Armando Valencia. That's when they took the name Milenio. And I was always part of these people. Later there was an alliance with El Lobo's compadre Luis Naranjo and we started working on a larger scale. We started sending like 2 or 3 tons working our way up to 35 or 40.
Official: How often?
El Molca: We would do 4 "jobs" per year.
Official: 4 "jobs" and the amount?
El Molca: From 15 on up. Minimum 15 tons.
Official: Did your status in the organization change because of these activities?
El Molca: I was always a trusted man of El Lobo and I never gave a fuck about ranks. I would only worry about mine and I didn't give a fuck about the rest. My compadre Lobo was detained and I left to Manzanillo, Colima that's when my compadre Tigre was detained and the war starts vs. Los Menchos or Torcidos.
Official: That's how the Cartel del Milenio was divided?
El Molca: That's how the Milenio was divided around May 2010.
El Molca: Tigre was captured and the way things go is Tigre's and Lobo's trusted man was Pilo. Eric wanted to put Mencho. Mencho wanted to be leader and we say no because the only one who knew how to run things for Lobo and Tigre was Pilo. They asked us to turn in Gerardo Mendoza "El Tecato" or "Cochi". We didn't want to. Gerardo kills some of Mencho's people in Tecoman and that's how the war started.
Official: That's the separation?
El Molca: We didn't hang out anymore. After Tigre was captured they never showed their face because they were the ones that turned him in.
Official: What groups were created?
El Molca: The fight starts for the Milenio name. They wanted to call themselves Milenio. We're Milenio. People begin getting arrested in San Cristobal. There was like 40 of them and they were saying they were Milenio but really they're Eric and Mencho's people. The killings start. They start picking up our people and killing family members and friends. We left Jalisco and Colima. Then the Familia Michoacana sent help and a group was created named La Resistencia. It is made up people from Los Altos, Colima, and people from Guadalajara, Jalisco.
Official: You're the leader?
El Molca: Right now, yes.
Official: Who is fighting in Guadalajara?
El Molca: Right now the war is between Sinaloa and people from CJNG. CJNG is Mencho's people.
Official: What was the agreement with La Familia? How where they going to help you?
El Molca: Well you know there was two leaders in Michoacan. There was El Chango, who was the only one that helped. He's a real friend that even helped with money. And the idea was to regain what was ours and hit Mencho. El Loco came in and wanted us to fight with the PFP and the Negros. We've never fought with the police. We didn't agree, so we went with Don Chuy (Chango) and that's how the problems started. There was a meeting and then they got Papirrin then Don Chuy.
Official: At this moment, who were you trying to align yourself with?
El Molca: I wasn't looking for help. I was waiting for Mencho to get arrested because I think their gonna get him soon. It's a fucking war with no end and no point.
Official: What is left of La Resistencia? How is the Resistencia?
El Molca: La Resistencia doesn't exist anymore. The only one left is Lupe Vega. But he left with the Torcidos (Mencho's people).
Official: Since 2009 how did you move around? How did you protect yourself? How many people did you have with you?
El Molca: The best protection is one's self and I didn't move around with other people. I was always alone. I would go into a plaza and ask for help from the person in charge. He would help me with Don Jesus. I had a good friendship with Don Chuy.
Official: What did they help you with? What did you ask for?
El Molca: I would just let them know I was on my way or I was going to pass by. They would accompany me or I would just hang out with them. I would try to spend my time in the sierra because of how heated things were. I would come down to Uraupan or Zamora to spend a day or two with my family then head back to the sierra.
Official: Were you armed?
El Molca: Yes.
Official: What kinds of weapons?
El Molca: A matapolicias (cop killer) and a 6.8
Official: Were you still using drugs?
El Molca: No. Only marijuana.
Official: How often?
El Molca: Everyday. It's the first thing I do when I wake up.
Official: How long have you been moving around from place to place?
El Molca: Since 2009. First Manzanillo then Colima then Villa Victoria. I lived in La Ruana, Uruapan, Zamorra, etc….
Official: You spoke of some mantas you put up. How did all this start in Guadalajara with the kidnappings and killings. Why is this going on?
El Molca: Sinaloa is pissed because Mencho finished off the people in Jalisco. Everyone that was in Jalisco was kidnapped and murdered.
Official: Who did he kidnap and kill?
El Molca: Everyone that would push dope. If you had a bar he would take it away. He would rob you and if you were "working" you would work for him. If not, you "go". He finished off with the people from Jalisco and then he started picking up Sinaloas. Sinaloa jumped and starting putting mantas and killing people. Then I see that Sinaloa wasn't taking them out so I put up some mantas with pictures of Mencho's people signed by Sinaloa. But the problem with Sinaloa and Mencho is already there. That's the next war.
Official: What's going to happen then?
El Molca: The Z's are going to come in with force. Soon as they (Sinaloa and CJNG) start fighting each other they're going to come in from Michoacan and Zacatecas and Jalisco is going to be finshed.
