Death in Durango: 2 die in San Dimas

Tuesday, June 11, 2013 |

Two men were found shot to death in San Dimas municipality Tuesday, according to Mexican news reports.

According to a news report posted on the website of Milenio news daily, a Mexican Army road patrol found the victims near the village of Minitas.

They were identified as Mateo Perez Guzman, 25, and Israel Niebla Perez, 28, both of Tayoltita in San Dimas.  The victims had been shot about the torso and left aboard a Jeep Cherokee SUV.

San Dimas municipality has been the focus of some drug related violence in recent years.  Government workers have suffered threats and vandalism at the hands of local criminal gangs just this past spring.  Several executions and deaths in gunfights have also been reported by Mexican press in San Dimas since 2010.

Meanwhile in Durango city, Durango state police seized 160 kilograms of marijuana in a raid Tuesday.

According to a news report which appeared on the online edition of El Siglo de Durango operatives with the Durango Direccion Estatal de Investigacion (DEI) served an order or apprehension at a residence on calle Canoas in Zona Centro.

Detained at the scene was Gustavo Hernandez Nava, 53.  It is unclear in the report if Hernandez Nava was the object of the detention order.

CDS vd CDJ itsjust CDj is very quiet. and Mayo has a large part of the government on his side but CDJ,BLO,and Z have shown to not be easy prey.Very violent and dangerous state if you are involved in drug trafficking or an outsider.Media is under control by CDS

The Herrera clan have been with the Juarez cartel for over30 years. Juarez controlled durango until chapo. Mayo and the rest form. Sinaloa cartel. Sinaloa control west of the Sierra to tepehuanes. Armando corral (head of Herrera clan and brother of poncho. Herrera (green shoes killed in club in Juarez in the 80's)corral and Juarez invited zetas to Santiago area. Chapo cleaned up the area. Juarez now with the zetas are attacking chapo in sinaloa. In the near future an attack to get the golden triangle will occur. If zetas. Get durango expect the same treatment like the border towns. Chapo leaves durango alone so I prefer chapo.

DURANGO is not important to broke ass pendejos like you.
For "Some" people, is an important state.
I'm leaving a link that has some important names there, people that have been with the Cartel for a long time 9Few generations).
