Borderland Beat
The federal government's security cabinet confirmed the arrest of Leopoldo Jaimes Valladares, aka "Polo", President of the Asociación de Citrus growers Valley of Apatzingan, Michoacan.  He is a member of the criminal group the Knights Templar in charge of extortion with collections of 30,000 to 60,000 pesos from lemon producers and who is thought likely to have participated in attacks with explosives to the Federal electricity facilities.
Leopold, brother of the ex-municipal mayor of Apatzingan, Jose Guadalupe Jaimes Valladares, was detained on Sunday for his alleged involvement in attacks against various substations of the CFE.
In a joint statement between the Ministry of the Interior, PGR, National Commission of safety, Sedena and the Marines, it was reported that "to follow up on the actions to restore peace and security in the State of Michoacán" Federal Police captured him.

At the time of his capture in the municipality of Apatzingán, the defendant carried a gun AK-47, two AK-47 magazines, 40 AK-47 rounds of ammunition, 31 cartridges 9 mm., 15 .380 caliber cartridges, a fragmentation, grenade  four mobile phones, a vehicle reported as stolen, and credentials identifying him as an officer of the PGR

They reported that Leopoldo Jaimes is likely responsible for the offenses of possession of weapons exclusively used by the armed forces, extortion, car theft and they are investigating his possible involvement in the violent acts committed against the facilities of the Federal Electricity Commission".


He was transferred to the specialized attorney in investigation of organized crimeto make a statement before the public prosecutor of the Federation, who has to define his legal status within 48 hours.

"Indications are in that this person was one of the main generators of violence in the region, since he is assigned as the one responsible for much of the extortion against the lemon producers of lemon in La Tierra Caliente," said the Interior Ministry.

  1. So how large will his velvet lined jail cell be? Will he have WiFi, multiple cell phones, and satellite TV? How much hookers and blow will be brought to him.

    Mexico: clean this crap up. This is disgraceful. At least take him out back and put a bullet in the back of his head.

    2. Honestly, Mexico can't do it alone. The US needs to step in. They did it with Pablo, what's the difference here? the sad truth is that all this is spilling onto US soil and Is no longer just Mexico's problem anymore.

    1. Take it easy, don't be hasty, lest the trail of corruption leads to the very tio levels of government. What would the commoners think if the lawmen were behind the scenes breaking the law?

  5. great!! the federal government is getting rid of CT clearing the way for CJNG. What happens when the native criminals are transplanted by foreign criminals? more murders, more abuse, more extortion, more rape? or will nothing happen and CJNG will respect and improve the lives of the people there? and everything will be peaceful like it never was?

  6. "A leader of a drug cartel was arrested in a municipality that his brother governs..."
    I doubt that means 'arrested' in the traditional sense...

  7. So, do you think this loser instructed those other losers to heave the bomblets at the substations? Or is he a scapegoat the gov. needed to look like they are dealing with the mess?

  10. Gee, connected to evil-common knowledge? Or what? Pretty politically ingrained? Hopeless to untangle. The web only gets more complicated....

  11. Totally a creepy weasel if I ever did see one. Kind of tarnishes the mayor's reputation, but he could have been like the governor and say he doesn't believe in that CT myth even though they are in the organization. Is that how it works? Corruptos galore! Make everyone ashamed, you losers!

  12. Traditionally in Mexico are mayors corrupt? Are there honest ones or is it a job prerequisite that they be on the take from everyone? Curious about that cause so often they steal money and such as they are leaving office and everyone is 'Ni Modo," and i'm the only standing there outraged once again by blatant political corruption in Mexico!

  16. @844 before they are elected, mayors are corrupt. they start with corrupt elections. once elected they take in several ways... rob the public treasury, skim/kickback from public obras and services contracts, mordidas collected at all levels, us of public employees for personal purposes, selling jobs, and on and on. then the plata o plomo of selling plazas and sharing cuotas. there is some Mexican political quotation that goes something like, "a poor politician is a stupid politician". The PRI are the best of the worst... they developed the art of Mexican corruption and impunity.

    Thank you for the explanation- no cure for corruption this ingrained in a country, do you think? Thank you again. I'm one that thinks PRI is the devil incarnate and wrote the mexican handbook of corruption.

  19. Totally corrupt state. I think there are no fixes and I'm a disheartened and disgusted mexican. It is hopeless like the middle east conundrum. People will be discussing Mexico's corruption in 2,500 more years with no changes to curb or to try to fix it just like Mexicans will still have straight dark brown/black hair and eyes and white, strong teerh. It is a troubling scenario for the future of Mexico because it means greed will still be in the driver's seat. So thank you for the story Havana.
