Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

CDS Durango Plaza Boss Captured in Culiacan

Friday, February 15, 2013 |

Borderland Beat:  BB reader "Tijuano",  contributed this post and translation


Alejandro Cabrera Sarabia, who is identified as the supposed plaza leader in Durango for the Sinaloa Cartel was detained this past February 10th in Culiacan, Sinaloa. This was informed by the Mexican Army and corroborated by Mario Lopez Valdes, Sinaloa´s Governor [in photo at left].
Cabrera Sarabia operated in the state capital and mountain range of Durango and the south of Chihuahua, according to unofficial information he is linked to Los M´s group, this groups has ties with drug smuggling, extortions and with various clandestine graves found in Durango.
[Felipe Cabrera Saraba (el Inge/Señor de la Sierra) in photo below ]
Cabrera Sarabia is one of four brother linked to CDS, Jose Luis, Luis Alberto (killed January 2012 in a shootout with the army) and Felipe Cabrera Sarabia aka “El señor de la sierra”(Sir of the sierra), this last one was apprehended in Culiacan in 2011.
Alejandro´s brother, Felipe Cabrera was at the time thought to be one of Joaquin “Chapo” Guzman´s bodyguards.
Felipe Cabrera´s power started a wave of extortions, kidnappings, executions and the disappearance of many people that would come to January 11th, 2011 with the discovery of a clandestine grave in Fraccionamiento Las Fuentes in the Durango state capital.
Alejandro Cabrera´s apprehension was hours after the capture of Jonathan Salas  Avilez aka “El Fantasma” in Costa Rica  Sinaloa and days after the reassignment of the military region of “La Laguna” to General Moises Garcia Ochoa who is also in charge of the military intelligence coordination of the “Laguna Segura” operation.
When asked about the detention, Governor Mario Lopez Valdez just confirmed the news and said that he was apprehended in Culiacan by Special Forces and was taken to SIEDO in Mexico, DF.
Even thou days before we had the confirmation of El Fantasma´s capture and now of Alejandro Cabrera, two of Sinaloa´s cartel strong men.
 
 Governor Mario Lopez Valdez ruled out a spike in drug-related violence in Sinaloa stating only police agencies should be on alert by this.
 
In clandestine "fosas" of Durango hundreds of bodies found
Thank you Tijuano!

Wasnt M-10 the one that arranged the meeting between DEA officials and Vicente Zambada somewhere inside the US?? Where their objective was to reach an agreement that if they provide information about rivals Cartels than Cartel de Sinaloa would be allowed to traffick in the United States without interference from authorities. And theres witnesses that have declared this


My point, is that M-10 has more pull than we think.M-10 and his brother M-11 almost finished off the Cabreras Sarabia by themselves.Now they split from CDS because M-10 believes Chapo betrayed him

The reason Mario Valdez, the Sinaloa governor says that authorities are gunna be on alert is because when Felipe Calderon was around Chapos ppl was off limits, but now things have changed.Theres never been many special operations in Culiacan(chapos/mayos homebase) i can think of a couple, Flaco Salguiero, Cabrera Sarabia, Manuel Torres but theres been a huge mobilization and number of operations in Guasave, and Mazatlan Sinaloa( beltran Leyvas plazas).

Maybe now the authorities will treat each criminal organization as a criminal organization instead of an enterprise or some of sort of buisness ( Sinaloa Cartel),or maybe not.

I'm just glad that the Special Forces got yet another criminal off the street. Great job Mexico. Wasn't it the twins who made the deal with the DEA or are they the same people? Once they get brought over the border to the US,they just can't stop talking. Could be the idea of 40 years in a Super-Max cell that gets them motivated! Another awesome article BB, keep them coming! Thanks, Texas Grandma. Peace to all innocents.

I think you are right. This was sent to me long ago and I had it in a folder. But the Logo and the type of vests bother me. The logo should be dirty like the car, and what type of vehicle is that?

Picture appears to be a Ford F-250 and it seems to be armored with whatever that white looking board is. As for the men, they don’t seem like your typical Mexicans, mercenaries? They are well equipped and uniformed. Very professional look, examine their body and hair styles; very similar to our military.

Mid 2000's Ford F250 or 350. Probably 350. Chivis thanks for all you're hardwork with bb. God bless you and have a good weekend. Salu2 desde Chicago

@chivis do you know if the brothers M-10 and M-11 still work for El Chapo?? I hear a lot about them not working for El Chapo.

"That first picture is photoshopped .. they american"
Its an old one alright,they look the part so stick some words on it.
I have also saw this particular one being used as if its Gente Nueva,no two ways about it.US private security or ops.I wonder if one of the Nunez Meza bros are going down any time soon?They have caused some major trouble and deaths in Durango.Are they the new owners as they say?

Agreed I shit all over that 1st Photo when it first came out about a year ago. Thats a fucking Dyncorp Security Detail in Basrah. I may or may not have worked with 2 of those guys. These are not dog-shit CDS or Zeta hacks these are professional soldiers. Left to right C-4 is even wearing his USG Contractor ID on his arm. Narcos would shit a brick if professional US PMC's start banging on their doors. Assclowns

Only hours after Jonathan Salas Aviles “El Fantasma” was apprehended in Sinaloa, Authorities in Durango detain Alejandro Cabrera Sarabia who is believed to be CDS Durango plaza Chief. He is one of four brothers Jose Luis Cabrera Sarabia, Luis Alberto Cabrera Sarabia and Felipe Cabrera Sarabia aka “El Senior de la Sierra”, “El Inge” (caught December of 2011).
The latter brother, Felipe, is believed to have been part of El Chapo’s inner circle, is linked to the narcofosas (narco grave) that were discovered in Durango in 2011. Univision reports that there were up to 332 bodies found in different locations in Durango. Many are believed to have been innocents who could not pay ransom.
Also, No drought the first photo is Photoshoped.

M10 and M11 where kicked out of durango plaza by los caberra who where supported by el chapo and el mayo. M10 and M11 started to kidnap and extort alot of people and the kidnapped one of the caberras nephew and that started a war. The caberras told the federal police where the narco fosas where at. As soon they where found that was the proof that M10 and M11 where kidnapping people for profit. el chapo and mayo found out and they threw there support behind the caberras .M10 and M11 where kicked out of durango and went to relocate .

If you only knew how corruption Mexico works then you would understand why such a rich country with so much to export has so many poor people? You 6:46pm are very stupid and just a finger pointer you can blame the USA all you want but we dont cut off people heads we dont kill and dump 50 bodies off on mothers day..in fact mexico has lots of good people and then we have uneducated people like 6:46pm the chunt

Chivis will post up anything she thinks will give her credibility but all she does is show she is uneducated and has zero journalism skills. This is what happens when you lie about your life and pretend to know everything that happens in the world. What a fake.

P@RR@ND3RO you might be correct cause mochomo wasn't the one who started the war he knew what was up. Arturo his brother was the stubborn all drugged up.

Get your trash talking self off this site. You owe Chivis an apology for all the hard work she does,even when sick. But, I'm sure you won't man up and do it, considering you seem to be a whiney bitch. Texas Grandma, peace to all innocents.

Mochomo joining Mayo and Chapo again? Not likely, if this were true then BLO would have stopped the atacks against CDS long time ago, Mochomo is the one running things from the joint, Mochomo will likely try to take back all that was taken from them and get rid of Chapo. BLO will most likely become the new Cartel de Sinaloa, Chapo and Mayo´s days are numbered, if Mochomo gets back on the street more than likely he will fight these guys off Sinaloa.

Carrillos still control Juarez much to Chapo´s nuthuggers denial.
CAF is still strong in TJ and the low profile tactics seem to be working for them.
BLO is still BIG in Sonora and the north of Sinaloa,
Those bastards known as zetas have also made incursions in Sinaloa.

You can´t fight everybody, Escobar paid for that and so will CDS...

Blo has more territory in sinaloa then el chapo and mayo. everyone in culiacan knows that they just dont mention it. el chapo people are afraid to venture out culiacan area. The furthest they dare to go is los mochis.

Lol at all the sinaloa haters. Chapo was last seen in Los Cabos, Its pretty damned safe to say he can travel outside of Sinaloa and Mexico for that matter. Not sure why everyone is on Blo's nuts..Arturo basically started the war. Mochomo isnt going to do anything when he gets out, he will be watched like a hawk if he isnt extradited last minute via DEA. Im no Cds jocker just stating facts, cds still runs Mexico.
