Alleged Tijuana Cartel member Luis Miguel Gonzalez Mantari at the moment of his arrest.
Huamanga-Ayacucho, PERU.- An alleged member of the Tijuana Cartel was captured on May 9th by members of the Territorial Police Directorate of Ayacucho(Direccion Territorial Policial-Dirtepol).

The suspect identified as Luis Miguel Gonzales Mantari aka “Chanchamayo”,42, is a former Peruvian National Police third level non-commissioned officer, his records show an arrest warrant dating back to 2005 for his involvement with the Tijuana Cartel, among other drug related charges.

The arrest took place near the 28 de Julio and Carlos F. Vivanco streets. When the officers approached the suspect he locked himself inside his car along with his wife, the suspect demanded the agents to be shown the arrest warrant.

Gonzales Mantari also demanded the presence of his lawyer and that of the Attorney General in order to be detained; meanwhile he refused to step out of his vehicle. The officers ordered “Chanchamayo” to step out of the vehicle and show them some ID but he refused. This refusal prompted the presence of Hinostroza Barrionuevo, Sheriff of Huamanga and that of Jose Antonio Muñoz Rodriguez, Dirtepol director, who also tried to convince Gonzalez Mantari to step out of the vehicle to no avail.


The Attorney General arrived about an hour later, asking “Chanchamayo” to show his ID and vehicle documents but again, Gonzalez Mantari refused cursing at him and the officers. After this, the Attorney General ordered the officers to take Gonzalez Mantari out of the vehicle and arrest him.

The police officers broke the car´s door locks and opened the door, at that moment Gonzalez Mantari fired his car and tried to flee but was taken into custody by the officers.

The suspect was taken to the Judicial Police facilities where investigations will continue.

Dirtepol director Jose Antonio Muñoz Rodriguez mentioned that this capture was the result of more than one month of intelligence work by Dirtepol officers.

Gonzalez Mantari acussed one of the officers of asking money in exchange of setting him free, “Chanchamayo” claims he offered the officer 500 US Dollars but the officer refused the amount, he also claimed he had been intercepted before but was set free on several times in exchange of money.

Luis Miguel Gonzalez Mantari is accused of smuggling cocaine out of Peru into Central America for years, even when he was a police officer.

BACKGROUND INFO

Vladimiro Montesinos alongside former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori.

The Tijuana Cartel has been in Peru for some time now, according to the reports done by former DEA agent Elizabeth Viviana Rosales Linares, who was able to infiltrate the organization, the Tijuana Cartel was allied with Vladimiro Montesinos, right hand man of former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori. In her statements, Rosales Linares claims the Tijuana Cartel once bought 19 tons from Montesinos, Those tons were then sold to an Egyptian identified only as “Duvall”, she also claimed the late drug lord Ramon Arellano Felix was at some time guarded by 3 Egyptians by the names of Abdel Baset, Jalifa Rima and Ali Almegrafi, all three of them lived in Tijuana.

Port of Paita in Peru.
Drug Lord Jose Maria Aguilar Ruiz aka “Shushupe” told Peruvian congressmen about an island located near Pisco, Peru in which the Tijuana Cartel had a cocaine lab.

In July 2006, Judge Hernan Saturno Vergara was killed in Lima, Peru, Peruvian authorities claim the Tijuana Cartel is responsible for his murder, a claim that is completely believable since at the time Saturno Vergara was in charge of the trial against 26 Tijuana Cartel members arrested in Peru.

Peruvian Police guarding a cocaine shipment from the Tijuana Cartel.

Fast forward to May 2012, the Peruvian authorities seized a drug shipment in the port of Paita. The shipment was disguised between organic bananas and had Belgium as destination. Authorities identified the Tijuana Cartel as the one responsible for this shipment. More than 3700 lbs of pure cocaine were seized that day. Authorities said that if that shipment had reached Belgium, the Tijuana Cartel would have made more than one hundred million dollars in profits.

In that operation three Peruvian business men were arrested, police identified them as Harri Luzardo Balcazar, Mauro Javier Arcela Perez, Hebber Max Becerra Zapata, Luis Angel Serra Sandoval and Guillermo Gamarra Rios.

Walter Sanchez Bermudez, Director of the Peruvian anti-narcotics agency (Direccion Antidrogas-Direndro) called them “one of the biggest and most important cocaine trafficking networks”.

For all the different cartel fans out there,i guess this answers the question of whether or not the TJ/CAF cartel is in trouble or big decline.2012 and 3700 lbs of pure cocaine was theirs?That is a lot of power and money.What other crews have seizures like that?1.8 tons if i,m not mistaken,before it is even cut?Serious money.

The extent and reach of the Tijuana Cartel narco empire is exerted with its presence in Peru. They not only control the distribution of their cocaine in the U.S. market, but also its production. As far as Ramón A.F.'s use of Egyptian bodyguards, it is not surprising at all; in fact, it was reported that the Tijuana Cartel employed Iraqi and Iranian commandos to train their Logan Heights hitmen.

I wonder which Mexican mafia because la eme formed in California prison system is completely different from the Mexican mafia formed in texas prison

Anonymous said...

I doubt he was a member of TJ Cartel; he's a supplier / producer. The South Ams don't join others, others align with them if they want cocaine & heroin (white). Its a bit complex. In Mexico Drug Lords buy Senators and such. In South Am., the Politicians / Generals ARE the Drug Lords ...

Off to a Peruvian pokey their Incan friend goes. Those are really really shitty too. When they get overcrowded, the guards burn them down. Riot and the military lobs missiles. That's what he gets for dealing with 'Vlad the Mad'. Public servant - Public nuisance.

Peru has been supplying better coke than Colombia for the past few years. And Tijuana has been their business partners while everybody fights over the dirty Colombian coke Tijuana has no middle man ,straight up the coast to Tijuana. Yes tijuana cartel leaders were captured but the Arrellano family still and will always control tijuana.

You are wrong I am a south sider, which means I belong to a gang in Los Angeles that is under orders from the Mexican mafia. Which the big homies carnales have the connects with the Tijuana;Somalia;michoacan;jalisco cartels. So San Diego still gets orders from the same Mexican mafia. In Texas there is two Mexican mafias and you do not even know but get your info right first before you believe crap you read online.

La M or Mexican Mafia IS connected with the Tijuana Cartel, that´s a known fact.

About Russians training TJ Cartel members, it happened before, in the 90´s some of the so called narcojuniors were trained in Russia and Israel, that was before the convoys of hundreds of bodyguards, when 1 or 2 hit men were enough to get rid of your competition.

INot just CDT Tijuano. CDG/Zetas had Guatemalen Kaibiles train some of their hitmen in Tamps. in the early 2000's. And who trained the Kaibiles and original Z's? U.S. Army special forces in Georgia. Who would be best in training people to become sicarios(hitmen) than professional soldiers, regardless of nation. Russian(Spetsnaz) and Isreali commandos know how to kill and, or capture people. Just ask the Afghans and Arabs, and in both cases the Nazis(war criminals). And one more anecdote to the story. I'm sure their is some Mexican-American, Chicanos, and Central American former and current U.S. Army/Marines who have joined, probably a small percentage, the ranks of the ranks of the cartels, gangs, mafias, and
maras. After all, there is a lot of former and current U.S. Army/Marines who happen to be Chicanos, Mexican-American, Central Americans Puerto Ricans, and Cubans.

Exactly, Juarez and I think Sinaloa had the Colombians train their squads, it´s not just one group.

About former soldiers, not only former, when I was searching information for this article I found one stating the Tijuana Cartel had about 50 marines in Camp Pendleton receiving their shipments in the coast of San Diego and smuggling weapons for them.

I guess corruption is everywhere.

Western Hemisphere Institute for Security and Cooperation formerly known as U.S. Army School of the Americas located in Fort Bennning, Georgia. Famous alums: Vladimiro Montesinos and ex-Panama dictator Manuel Noriega. Trained soldiers from Latin American countries in counter insurgency, torture tactics, surveillance, etc. You train some soldiers, they return to their native countries and pass on that specialized training to other soldiers.
