4.24.15 Radio formula reported:
Federal authorities have denied that José Silvestre Haro Maya, aka "The Chive", identified as the leader of the Gulf Cartel in the region, had been captured during an operation in the South of Tamaulipas.
This is rather vague, it does not name who exactly is saying this but this is reported by Radio Formula.
"El Chive" is captured? Or still dead?
Ok readers, here is what I have. I recalled in 2014, this guy was supposed to have been shot by federal agents. He was injured from gunshots but alive and police finished him off all caught on video. It sure looked like him. But today when Valor X Tamaulipas, El Mañana and others posting videos of the violence and attributed it to Chives capture, I asked Chivis what she remembered, she replied, “isn’t the guy dead?”
But we could not remember it ever being confirmed last year, it was reported that he was dead, and also that he was arrested.
After a few hours getting emails, and of seeing reports come across, from el debate, Mexico yahoo and so forth, we decided to post something. But I am tentative about the story. (PGR Website has nothing as of yet)
Another possibility is that it may be Chives brother who was captured.
I will leave the post up and continuing checking but I may take it down if we feel it is false. I apologize for the confusion. (Lucio)
Here is my post
It was Deja vu today in southern Tamaulipas, just as it was in Reynosa last Wednesday when “El Gafe” was captured, and members of CDG created mayhem against federal forces with deadly shootouts, and blockades. Supposedly, today after the capture of another CDG leader, José Silvestre Haro Maya alias the Chive"or the"R1", members of his group, sought to prevent his transfer to Mexico City with narco blockades and a wave of violence in Altamira, Madero and Tampico
It is reported to have been confirmed that in a special operation the Mexican Marina managed to arrest José Silvestre Haro Maya alias the Chive"or the"R1", a CDG leader operating in the south of Tamaulipas.
In the aftermath of the confrontation at least 4 elements of the Marina were wounded, there are reports of 5 others being killed, but those reports are not confirmed.
Order was restored and blockades were removed, and the narco leader known as “El Chive” was transferred to Mexico City for a stop at the PGR agency, before his likely transfer to maximum security prison, The Federal Social Readaptation Center No. 1 "Altiplano".
The videos on the following page are of today’s violence, and next video is “El Gafe” being transferred to Altiplano,
The third video is the transfer to Altiplano of Jesús Salas Aguayo alias “El Chuyin”(above in red) one of the principal leaders of the Juarez cartel who was also captured this week.
Interior Minister Miguel Angel Osorio Chong, along with other federal leaders, said today that because of the work of this administration, they have significantly weakened the Cartel Golfo (CDG). By doing so it has succeeded in doing something no other administration has been able to do, crippling one of Mexico’s oldest cartels.
Anyone else smell election time?
