319 kilos of cocaine seized in Tijuana

319 kilos of cocaine seized

Cerro Colorado, Tijuana
This morning in Tijuana, Mexican Army working in a counter narco operation seized 290 packages of cocaine, containing 319 kilos of cocaine, and 162,000 in cash.  The money and product was in a safe house in the Lake Gardens private upscale community, in Cerro Colorado.  

The operation was performed quietly, and efficiently, with no shots fired. Interestingly, no detainees have been named or announced at this time.  This is the largest seizure in the last 2 years in Tijuana, according to General Gabriel Garcia Rincon, commander of the second military zone.  The kilos are assessed at roughly 21,000 per, before crossing the border.  The last large seizure of cocaine was the 325 pounds seized from the narco tunnel discovered in fall of 2013 , in an industrial warehouse in Otay Mesa, along with 8 tons of marijuana. 

In 2015, 400 kilos of cocaine, more then 400 kilos of methamphetamine, and 3.5 tons of marijuana have been seized in Tijuana.  Last week, at the Otay Mesa crossing, 19 tons were confiscated by US Border Patrol and Customs agents, one of the larger marijuana seizures in recent years.  

As a whole cocaine trafficking has declined slightly, as consumption has ceded slightly in US markets, making overseas destinations more desirable to traffickers.  Prices in the US remain high, even in border cities.

 No information was given on a particular group, or individual the product belonged too.  Due to the circumstances, it is likely the seizure was derived from information from a suspect in custody, through (very) enhanced interrogation techniques, or even likelier a tip, that may have come from a rival group or organization.  The General offered little commentary on the success, except saying 'they are taking drugs off the streets that harm our children".

  1. I wonder to what criminal organization this cocaine belonged to. From what I've heard in Tijuana there are a few different groups operating like Sinaloa, Caballeros Templarios, and whats left of the Tijuana Cartel. The good thing is that innocent people aren't being killed or extorted in TJ.

    3. No way Franky works with CDS. He wouldn't stab Benja his father in the back like that. Till this day that bad blood between the Arellanos and chapo/mayo is fresher than ever. Only because the street capos make truces which is beneficial and booming for the business does not mean that all that war from the 90s was resolved. The only reason Mayo gained territory in Tijuana was because Fernando "Inge" didn't have the muscle nomore since he disobeyed his uncle Benjamin. The nephew and uncle are not in good terms And yes Ramon had a son in the late 80s with all that partying and hooking up he was into.

  7. Whats worse for them than to loose their merchandise. But it was probably just a small hit for them, if they are able to stash hundreds of kilos like if it was nothing. Must be some group moving a lot more than that. Maybe just the leftovers that nobody wanted.

  11. Time for prices to go up in the Los Angeles area. CDS has been taking alot of hits these last few months. A bird in Los Angeles last year would run about 20k right now they are going for up to 30k. Supply and Demand my friends.

    2. Los cuadros limpios estan ha 32-36K en chicago. All depends on who you know and how many hands it goes through. Supply has been steady the last month but your going to pay for the clean work.Todos los carteles and heavy independents land work in Chiraq. Crystal has taken over most of the country but here and the east coast demand is high and will always b that way. The order is pretty much sold before it even lands, and they say that demand has lessened, not here in the windy, business as usual.But gone are the days when a brick was 18K, its now double that.Guess inflation has hit everybody across the board. The show goes on like 10:49 ain't lying supply and demand. Streets are even paying 40 to 44K in the Twin Cities. Crazy, but we're talking clean work, keep that in mind people. be safe out there
