"El Pelón in Custody


Violent Day in Zacatecas leaves a balance of ten dead criminals, a criminal arrested and three policemen detained by the SEIDO.

After 24 hours of intense armed confrontations between antagonistic groups of organized crime in the North border with the municipality of Fresnillo in Zacatecas, military authorities reported ten suspected criminals shot dead, 8 during Thursday´s shootout between zetas and CDG.
Two additional criminals were killed today by members of the Mexican army, and the arrest of an alleged criminal nicknamed "El Pelón", who was wounded by a bullet impact.  Also reported is  the arrest of two agents and a commander of the Municipal police, who were transferred to the city of Mexico by agents of the attorney specializing in investigation of organized crime (SEIDO).
The violent day started on Thursday afternoon, June 20, and has forced the mobilization of troops of the eleventh military zone of the Mexican army, the 97 motorized infantry battalion, the navy of Mexico, Federal Police, Federal Ministerial police, State police and staff and experts of the forensic medical service. 
They maintained an operative on the 45 Federal road on the stretch of the municipalities of Fresnillo to Rio Grande as well as the roads of the state´s Northeast and the connection to the States of Coahuila and Durango, fearing new clashes between members of organized crime, who are mobilizing in the area according to reports from locals.
After the joint operative, four recent model vehicles, fire weapons of exclusive use of the armed forces and sophisticated radio equipment were secured.
 
It´s been confirmed that on Friday 21, at 4 pm, there was a clash between soldiers from the 97 infantry batallion and members of organized crime that started in the heart of the urban area in Fresnillo, the chase started by the Chedraui supermarket towards the colonia Lomas de Plateros and up to the exit to the community of Plateros.
By the CECYTEZ (college for scientific and technological studies) 2 criminals were shot dead by the military. The remaining criminals managed to escape through dirt roads leading towards Cañitas de Felipe Pescador municipality.
This vehicle laden with suitcases, clothes and 6 dead Golfos-in the same clash 2 dead Zetas
Amid a total secrecy about the events, it became known that the military personnel deployed on a dirt road nearby the community of Plateros arrested members of the Fresnillo Municipal police attempting  to take in their patrol car a local zeta leader (possibly the new plaza boss in Fresnillo after the recent arrest of el Cachetón) to a hospital to be treated from a bullet injury, in a failed attempt to evade the check points of the federal authorities.
Another version of this scenario is that after the military learned that the officers had transported El Pelón to the hospital for his injuries they immediately dispatched to the hospital.  Seeing the officers were very nervous they opted to interview the men where it was determined they were accomplices of the wounded narco. (Updated information has the number at 8 police accomplices of Zetas)
 

two dead sicarios
It´s worth mentioning that on June 7, after a threatening message signed by CDG left with 3 executed bodies and addressed to the municipal police in Fresnillo (warning them against working for the zetas) only 40 agents in the whole municipality showed up for work.
Authorities of the Attorney General of Justice in Zacatecas PGJEZ, and the Attorney General of the Republic PGR, keep silence about the details of these clashes and the result of the anti-crime operative’s arguing that there is an ongoing investigation
ARMED GROUP KILLS FORMER MAYOR IN SAIN ALTO, ZACATECAS
In the middle of a political meeting and almost in front of dozens of PRI militants, a heavily armed command stormed to kill former Mayor, José Ramírez Román, who was a teacher and a well-known politician in the municipality of Saín Alto, which is located in the Center - North of the State 120 kilometers away from the city of Zacatecas.
The preliminary report from local authorities and Civil Protection indicates that the attack occurred at 20:10 hours on Friday 21.
José Ramírez Román served as Mayor of Saín Alto in the triennium from 2001 to 2004 and since then remained as an active militant of the PRI and promoter of local politicians.
The Attorney General of Justice of the State still has not issued an official report on the assassination.
SATURDAY
Unofficial reports of two men dead and a woman seriously wounded is reported  the balance of a clash between suspected members of the "Zetas" and the CDG in Fresnillo.
 
Close to 11:00 am, clashes between members of opposed groups of organized crime, which are currently disputing the Plaza of Fresnillo, Zacatecas.
 
The groups clashed in the streets of Fresnillo, ending in Carrillo Puerto Street, near La Vacula, in colonia Esparza, where a navy blue Saturn, manned by several criminals, crashed into a parked truck.
 Criminals had already shot the sedan and the wounded occupants crashed into the pick up, witnesses mentioned that they opened fire on the vehicle again and then left the place.
Inside the car there were two criminals dead and a woman was seriously injured.
A rescue unit arrived, attending the wounded woman who was transferred immediately to a hospital, while paramedics certified the absence of vital signs in the other 2 car occupants, leaving the authorities to conduct investigations.

Wow. Look's like the Zetas have more power in Zacatecas then previously thought. And here cheerleaders were screaming the Zetas had totally lost control of Fresnillo.

>6 golfos dead
>2 dead zetas
>local police/city goverment/transit police etc on Zetas side.

I wouldn't be surprised if the military was on their side too.

Sounds like the military is doing their job killing the bad guys, but they should of shot the corrupt cops instead of wasting time arresting them; the cops will only be back on the street.

when they are done killing each other how long do you think it will be till they turn their homicidal tendencies on the regular folk?
one consolation "any dead cartel is a good cartel".

stop calling them criminals when reporting on the dead. you are just as bad as the Mexican Government when you do this. there was no investigation to determine this. And just because you label them criminals do they deserve to die?

I wonder where Los Chapos are in this fight are they staying put or joining CDG because its weird how well financed CDG is in Zacatecas after Talibans capture...

I guess thay perfer the lesser of the two evil

Mexican army seems quite good at its job. If it wasn't for the corrupted officials, top-brass and others, they could probably do MUCH more. I still hope they get help from another nation though. Who and when, i dunno. Not the US for sure.

Anonymous said...

This is why people like CDG, they know how to get rid of Zetas, they do it and they love it. Much like CDS, they have good accuracy rate. They know the difference between organized and unorganized crime. They are all criminals, but I prefer my criminals being more dangerous to their enemies and less dangerous to the public. Zetas are unorganized making them more dangerous to the public and less dangerous to their enemies.

CDS is going by CU in most of Zac, and yes they are involved but laying a bit low, in one of the recent shootouts (don´t remember which one, too much stuff going on to keep track of all the details) trucks marked as CU were involved, their trucks have been seen in other clashes but the press and the authorities keep silent about it. And I also believe they are financing the CDG Talibanes or at least providing men and guns.

Any info on El Pelon's real name? That's a very common nickname.

Anonymous said...

June 23, 2013 at 2:20 AM

Actually it looks like the other way around, the municipal police is definitely with the zetas, lots of municipal policemen in different municipalities have resigned as CDG went gaining ground, and that shootout where 6 golfos and 2 zetas died (plus probably many more from both cartels who were taken before the army arrived) was between cartels, killing each other.

Most action you hear about from federal forces is against zetas...which made sense at first, but now that CDG is dominant in more areas it makes you wonder why the arrests and killings by militars and federal police are still mostly against one cartel while the other(s) go pretty much untouched...

zetas are a bunch of pussy whipped cowards that show their dominance by killing innocent civilians and migrants. fuck those assholes. kill them all.

"I guess thay perfer the lesser of the two evil"

The lesser of the two ? Lol. Are we talking about the same CDG who beheaded a young girl and a young honduran boy ? Yeah right.

Some people here seem to have completely lost their mind. There are no better cartels than others, they should all be crushed to dust, and above all, none of them have ever given ANY reason to stand beside them. They all pretend X or Y kill innocent people, but that's exactly what they do too, except they try to hide behind lame excuses such as "they worked for the enemy".

Anonymous said...

Hitler caused more deaths than 11million bro. He and Nazi Germany killed 27million Russians, Ukrianians, Belarussians, etc. The interesting part about that was that the Russians did'nt return the favor. They just took away territory from them. I'll tell you who did though. The Brithish incinerated Dresden causing 800,000 deaths. Payback for the bombing of Brithish cities during the Battle of Britain.



Anonymous said...

Mexican marines are awesome. The motto for them should be "mess with the best then die like the rest". Since the cartels always seem to be running away. If it was ever a face to face fight the cartel knows they would lose.

My question is why don't the mexican soldiers ask for U.S. help. We have so many trigger happy lunatics in the U.S. we'd be glad to lend a hand. Not only that but we can send in seal team six to take out high priority targets.

Can you believe that the governor of Zacatecas -Miguel Alonso's PRI party recently lead a campaign to get more people to go out to Zacatecas night life? He said organised crime does not exist in Zacatecas and we should all enjoy without fear. What an idiot! That closet homo needs to open his eyes and start to ACTUALLY do something of benefit for the people.

Navy SEALS have been taking out drug lords for a long time, they are instructed to kill everyone on the property and keep the drug lord alive. Everyone including family if they are there, trust me, if the US wanted to, any given Mexican and those closest to him will go down. They never fail. I personally know someone who accidentally killed the drug lord too, he got a slap on the wrist, went home and enjoyed the rest of the holiday. Laughing about it.

@ 12:12 am Ugh don't make me get started on the governor, who spent well over a million dollars to "update" the official residence (with public funds, of course) while over 60% of the population in the state lives in poverty, he has been retaining payments to retired migrant workers and when they went to protest he sent all the police corporations to beat them and arrest them, the same corporations that are nowhere to be seen when cartel shootouts happen, he has been pressuring locals in Malpaso to keep buying land for his luxurious ranch there, has bought many buildings in the historic center and ranches around the state,...it pisses me off, yet another corrupt politician doing nothing but filling his pockets and on top of that launching campaigns about how safe is Zacatecas and how nothing happens here.
