Zacatecas Balacera: Zetas Regional Chief Killed in Fresnillo

Saturday, May 4, 2013 |

Borderland Beat


Thursday night into Friday was another episode of terror as clashes between Golfo and Zetas cartels, the Mexican Army and SEDENA erupted in several points of the Zacatecas city of Fresnillo. 
The shootout lasted hours reportedly passed through;  Paseo de El Mineral,  la avenida Huicot before advancing to colonias Plutarco Elías Calles, Lomas de Plateros, Ampliación Azteca and Emiliano Zapata among others. 

A barrage of calls to the 066 emergency system was made by citizens awakened in the various areas by gun blasts.  Not until 2 hours into the conflict a Special Forces convoy arrived to give support to soldiers.
The gunfire ceased at approximately 1:40 am on the road leading to the town of Valparaiso.
Zetas and the Golfo Cartels are vying for Fresnillo.

While officials did not give a number of dead and wounded, it was confirmed that a leader of the Zetas was killed, David Alexander Loreto, aka “El Diablo”, the regional chief of the plaza in Zacatecas, Nuevo Laredo and Coahuila, also killed was identified only as “El Gordo Chaires", known to be Zetas Fresnillo chief.

In related news Zac reports the following:
“Just yesterday "unidades regionales de seguridad" were inaugurated in Rïo Grande and Villa de Cos, north and east from Fresnillo respectively, good thing because they are covering heated areas, there´s another one under construction in Sombrerete (where there were reports of shootings last night too, but no confirmation or any press note about it) and another one being built in Malpaso (south of the capital), so once all these are operative looks like many of the heated areas should have much more protection, the exception being the west side of the state, Villanueva comes to mind since a lot has been happening in that area”

There were reports on B.B earlier that the Golfos have become weak but now we read that they are taking on the Zetas with some success...It's confusing & looks like there are no real winners except losers like the common innocent Mexicans caught in the cross fire...Sad.

They didn't protect their commanders very good did they?They got caught sliipin or just overwhelmed by numbers?More Talibs causin havoc on their ex compas,givin up names,locations,safe-houses,the way they can get to some of these people?Oh yeah,another Diablo.

In nuevo Laredo if call 066 they won't even send anybody.the army says don't call that number because they get your number on caller I d and they tell the zetas.plus the transit people help the zetas also.if you ask the army the will give you there direct line.I know because my brother is a soldier and they hate the zetas.

It's interesting (distressing too obviously, but interesting) to have read the article the other day about reporters' being afraid to report on exactly this kind of stuff in this region. I appreciate the willingness of whoever released this report.
Hopefully for the time being one side will come out on top so that the violence slows, and in the longer term Pena Nieto's development strategy will take root so the violence ends forever...though part of that will have to be his being eventually replaced by another president with a development plan, but who is not a corrupt billionaire.

You wrong all the way! In Nuevo Laredo you don't see that many halcones in the streets making calls about the location of army patrols. Now is citizens beating the shit out of halcones and zetillaz, state and federal police shooting kidnappers (yesterday they killed two and arrested the other two) soldiers and marines shooting halcones on the spot. Z40 is hiding and not in Nuevo Laredo, 40's friends are also hiding, they ain't running anything any more.

The supposed "commander bebe" video was old and not even him. Even the other picture the CDG uploaded of a supposed zeta commander executed turned out to be fake. CDG are #1 at propaganda and have the biggest online presence.

Anyways, the only reason CDG still has life to put up a fight is because of Talabin+Crew defectors. Z-50 had around 500 guys under his command. Now most of them are putting up the fight in Zacatecas, Nuevo Leon, and Tamaulipas. They're numbers are dwindling though since a lot of them have been killed or arrested. The Zetas have lost a few municipalities, the biggest one being Monterrey. But still, that's nothing compared to all the territory they hold in MX. Plus, more Zeta re-enforcements are being sent to Monterrey, Zacatecas, and Nuevo Laredo. So prepare for a bloodbath.

Also, remember the CDG main-holds where they have complete control are only Reynosa, Matamoros, and a little bit more then hal of Frontera Chica, Acapulco(only because of the Pelones alliance and the cell of Zetas that switched to CDG) , and Monterrey(this one they only control%75). And they're at their weak state and are only trafficking fractions of what they use too. I mean, they're freaking extorting motorists using the highways for 100 pesos, that tells you a lot. Even the scummy zetas don't extort motorists, way too much heat.

The mexican gov't needs to hire private contractors like the once blackwater. They won't be full of corruption whatsoever. They then need to allow them to gather their own intel and conduct raids without approval from the mex. Gov't to stop any leaks to the cartels. And the U.S. gov't needs to start shooting on site anybody that crosses our border illegally and that will make'em think twice b4 crossin. TF TAMPA, FLORIDA

Most of the zetas were taken without firing a single shot, when Lazcano went down there was only one shot fired by a Marine and hit him right in the ass.

Zetas biz plan is stupid. As they terrorize communities by extorting and raping and kidnapping and murdering the honest citizens, in time the honest citizens will band together and destroy the zetas. Zetas are despised and in time they will be destroyed.
Pablo Escobar who had more brains in his dick than all the zeta leadership has in their pea brains, would feed the poor and build homes and soccer fields. He was loved in the areas he controlled. He made his money by drug dealing, and he spread it around.
