Executed: Manuel Garibay Felix aka "El Manuelon"

Manuel Garibay Felix aka "El Manuelon" was executed in Zapopan, he was one of the biggest dealers in Mexicali and a former Arellano Felix and CDS member, apparently he was working lately with CJNG and with Fernando Sanchez Arellano.

One of the most prominent drug dealers in Mexicali was found dead this past Wednesday. Jose Manuel Garibay Felix´s body was located in a road near Zapopan, Jalisco, semi naked and with visible signs of torture his body also showed the coup de grace.
 
Garibay Felix was accused of dozens of homicides, including that of an agent in the Policia Ministerial in Mexicali, a clandestine grave was found in one of his properties by state police some years ago, police suppose that the Garibay clan used this ranch to get rid of kidnapping victims and enemies bodies.
 
 Even after this he was released after a Judge granted him a federal habeas corpus.
Daniel De La Rosa Anaya, Baja California´s public security secretary confirmed that the body found last Wednesday in Zapopan is that of Manuel Garibay Felix aka “El Gordo”.
The Garibays have a long history with organized crime in Baja California, his father, once a powerful trafficker for the Arellano Felix Cartel changed sides and started working with the Sinaloa Cartel sometime in the 90´s. “Los Garibay” as the group is known, seeded terror in Mexicali´s valley, kidnappings, “cuotas” and large shipments of cocaine were their main source of income.
[at left] Manuel´s father, Manuel Garibay Sr. was arrested by Baja Californias Preventive State Police(Policia Estatal Preventiva, PEP) in 2010, when he was apprehended he mentioned that he started working with the Arellano Felix brother´s but decided to change sides when he lost a drug shipment in Los Angeles and refused to pay for it.
At the time of his apprehension he confessed he was one of the main connections between Chapo Guzman and the Colombian cartels. He is currently in Federal prison facing several organized crime charges.
“El Gordo” was recently released  from Puente Grande Federal Prison(Same one Chapo Guzman escaped) and started conflicts with Gustavo Inzunza aka “Macho Prieto” and Cenobio Flores Pacho aka “El Checo” over the Mexicali plaza.
While in Puente Grande he made connections with the CJNG(Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion) and apparently allied with them to gain full control of Mexicali for them, he was also believed to be working with the new leader of the Tijuana Cartel, Fernando Sanchez Arellano.
After he was seen boarding a plane from Tijuana to La Paz alongside Inez Zamudio Beltran leader of “Los Zamudio” and several members of a criminal cell working for Sanchez Arellano.
Some hours after their arrival the plaza leader for CDS in La Paz was executed alongside his bodyguards, police believe it was Garibay and Sanchez Arellano´s people who did it.
There´s not much info right now as with whom he was really working but nonetheless he had some powerful enemies.

"Started problems with Macho Prieto." Bad idea, CDS probably had Sanchez people kill him.

J said...

Thanks for this story, and translation, really interesting....'El Oaxaco' was the plaza leader in La Paz who was killed in August, who was beltran leyva right? Maybe suggesting more to the cds/sanchez alliance. Someone had enough of this guy though.

The little part about the flight to Tijuana -La Paz, and the guy ending up dead hours later is so cinematic.

Macho Prieto wasn´t that big compared to this guy, they were on the same power level, Macho´s people are paying plaza in TJ, besides that, i really doubt that El Ingeniero would kill him because CDS said so...Most likely CJNG used him to get connected with CAF and then got rid of him. CJNG is paying plaza to "El Balas" in Tijuana to smuggle big shipments thru TJ.

CJNG has it bad from all fronts. Could have been CT.

Macho has way more authority than this fatty. Macho prieto has full support of the cds witch would crush Los Arellano cjng. Couldent haven been c.t unless chapo told them two do it low key.

Oaxaco was CDS, he betrayed BLO and some say he is the one who killed Mochomo´s nephew. Zeta wrote about this in Baja Sur some time ago, they said this pig along side Ines Zamudio got to La Paz from TJ and killed el Oaxaco and his men, this was done because when Ines Zamudio got aprehended by the army el Oaxaco took over the plaza and went to work with CDS betraying BLO and Los Zamudio, this last group being the CAF representatives in Baja Sur. Anyhow, El Manuelon had it coming long time ago, many people are happy tonight in Mexicali, including Macho Prieto...

Parrandero is a str8 up chismoso, dude you be BS-ing to much with your "breaking news" that no one on here believes your posts... Dude just keep it real!

Chivis said...

The story was written and translated into English by "Tijuano" in TJ. He used several sources to write the article but mainly Zeta and AFN.

As for the commenter who said he "stole" this from Zocalo, (again) Zocalo was not used and in fact when I checked they still have not published the story.

and lastly for the reader who said he said this a week ago. Well since the body was discovered on Tuesday late afternoon naked in the road, and authorities listed him as a Juan Doe, and it took 24 hrs before they were told to check into the possibility it was Gordo, that makes you a very special clairvoyant. :) Pls send me next weeks news so I can get a jump start...Paz Chivis

Who are los coroneles with and who is cjng with? Its confusing right now and chivis posts contradicting information sometimes

Anonymous said...

Macho isn´t in the best term with CDS right now, he had to leave Sinaloa because of som issues with M1, Macho actually is paying piso in Tijuana to CAF so he can move CDS merchandise BUT he is not willing to go to Culiacan right now, remember what happened to Fantasma, El Animal, Cabrera Sarabia and Mochomo.

Chivis said...

@6:02PM

at the top of posts you will see Borderland Beat..at the bottom will list source. If I write it my name will be at top saying Chivis Martinez for Borderland Beat. The contradiction was authored by others and I leave their opinion alone as it is theirs supported by what they write.

Now if you are ASKING my opinion, CJNG was a huge liability for CDS beginning with the Boca Del Rio Farce. They parted ways and mantas reflected that.

Be a little pro active.
Please

Macho isnt in tijuana anymore. He was. But now hes back in mexicali. The reason why he moved to tijuana was because of the beef with M1..goes to show the power that M1 actually had. But macho is back in chicali
