Update: "El Atlante" Rumored to Have Been Arrested in Jalisco


As reported by Uriradio, Alfonso "El Atlante" Lira Sotelo, a member of the Sinaloa Cartel was allegedly captured Tuesday, September 17 in Jalisco. "El Atlante" is reportedly in charge of retail drug sales in Tijuana, Tecate, and Playas de Rosarito, as well as trafficking to California.

Borderland Beat reporter J wrote in August in the article "Blood & White Gold in Tijuana" that "El Atlante" has been fighting against fellow Sinaloa Cartel member Alfredo "El Aquiles" Azarte García for power in Tijuana and Rosarito, ignoring calls from leadership to keep the plaza calm. It is also worth noting that deelucky1 has said multiple times on the forum that "El Atlante" is currently aligned with Jose Antonio "El Tigre" Soto Gastelum and José Luis "El Güero Chompas" Mendoza Uriarte in the fight against "El Aquiles".

Update:
Additional information is being reported by Zeta. It writes that "El Atlante" was arrested around 2:00 PM by federal forces in Guadalajara, Jalisco.  He was accompanied by two bodyguards and was arrested for possession of a weapon of exclusive use of armed forces.  He was turned over to the public minister due to an order of presentation in August stemming from declarations given before SEIDO (Deputy Attorney General Specialized in the Investigation of Organized Crime) by three criminals who were arrested on August 12.  Surprisingly, no arrest warrants exist for him in the state of Baja California, although federal sources stated off record that he is wanted by the United States.  In a coordinated action, some of his operators were arrested in Tijuana, but no additional information has been given.

It further stated that his name began to be heard in declarations of arrestees in 2012, which placed him as a member of Los Teos. Thereafter, he was reported to have become a cell leader under the command of "El Aquiles". Over the past two years he rose in power and notoriety through death threats and killing of drug dealers and distributors that refused to work for him.

AFN reported much of the same details, but added that the announcement of his arrest was delayed pending him being positively identified as he had undergone several surgeries that had changed his appearance.  He was taken to Mexico City, were he is being questioned by agents of SIEDO, and operations in Sinaloa and Baja California have already been conducted based upon information given by him.

He is further reported to have controlled the majority of drug distributors in eastern, southern, and northern Tijuana, particularly the area of the  communities near the Corredor 2000, which include the colonias of  Sánchez Taboada and Camino Verde, la Zona Norte and parts of San Antonio de los Buenos.

  2. Alfonso Lira has been rumored for quite some time to be aligned with CJNG and in the last ZETA magazine article they mention he made a pact with the remaining cells of CAF in Tijuana. If confirmed, this capture will no doubt affect the violence that has been felt in Tijuana in the past months.
