"Here you have the untouchable Gera or G1, and I am going for all the rest of the dogs, this is the ultimatum whoever does not want to come to this side better grab their dick I am coming with everything and against everyone. Sincerely Guardia Michoacana"
The heads were identified as belonging to Gerardo Serafín and a relative, Pedro Serafín, both commanders of the Fuerza Rural in the municipality of Uruapan. Family members reported that they had been kidnapped the day before while conducting a patrol.
In March of this year it was claimed that Gerardo Serafín, known as "El Gera" and "El G1", was a former member of Los Caballeros Templarios that had joined the then emerging group H3, which put him in charge of their synthetic drug labs. Furthermore, it was said that he had called a meeting in Uruapan to impose charges on those involved in crystal methamphetamine: two kilograms were to be given to him for each barrel produced and $200 per kilogram from traffickers.
It is worth noting that La Guardia Michoacana has previously been identified with Los Caballeros Templarios.
