Sinaloa Cartel Takes Another Big Hit. Cesar Gastelum Captured

Borderland Beat posted by DD, Republished from El Universal and Yahoo News

                                          César Gastélum is arrested in Cancun.  

Cesar Gastelum Serrano and his brothers
Mexican marines and police have arrested a man authorities describe as a leading cocaine
trafficker for Mexico's Sinaloa drug cartel, authorities said Sunday..  Monte Alejandro Rubido, Mexico's national security commissioner, said Cesar Gastelum Serrano was arrested Saturday in the resort city of Cancun.


Along with three of his brothers, he is accused of large-scale cocaine trafficking through the Colombia-Honduras-Guatemala route to Mexico, with final destination to the United States.  Rubido said he worked with Sinaloa cartel leader Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada — one of the
last of the old-style drug capos still at large in Mexico — and with Damaso Lopez, who has been mentioned as a possible successor to arrested Sinaloa drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.  (DD; El Universal reported the authorities identified him as a partner with El Mayo).

 Authorities said Gastélum operated a family company specializing in scaffolding, which allowed him to move "multiple tons" of cocaine per week and added that he was carrying a pistol and 700 grams (24.7 ounces) of cocaine at the time of his arrest.  

Rubido said that when Gastelum Serrano was in Cancun, "he moved around the area with a low profile, without bodyguards. He did not carry any identification, not even false ones, to avoid detection."






 Rubido said Gastelum Serrano had operated in Honduras, and had been linked to the killing of law enforcement officials there. He said he operated for a time in San Pedro Sula, Honduras' most violent city, and moved Colombian cocaine through Central America to the U.S. market, as well as distributing drugs in Central America.

In December 2013 the U.S. Department of the Treasury designated Gastélum as a Specially Designated Narcotics Trafficker pursuant to the Kingpin Act along with three of his brothers: Alfredo, Jaime, and Guadalupe Candelario Gastélum Serrano.  

 “With support from his brothers, César Gastélum Serrano has been able to establish himself as one of the most prolific cocaine suppliers for Mexico’s Sinaloa Cartel,” OFAC Director Adam J. Szubin said at the time.  
The Treasury added that Gastélum used a vast criminal network to lead a cocaine trafficking organization capable of moving tons of cocaine per week through Honduras and Guatemala to Mexico.  
 
Consequently, all assets of those designated that are based in the United States or in the control of U.S. persons were frozen, and U.S. persons were generally prohibited from engaging in transactions with them.

    1. I think Mayo is cleaning house for the betrayels of everyone. CDS is having an internal conflict that's taking everyone out yet they don't let it show to anyone outside Sinaloa. There's too many families all over Sinaloa that are involved in the game. Decades old alliances are being broken and new ones made. Once the dust settles I still see Mayo on top. He has nothing to lose anymore by dropping dimes or taking out what's left of those who ain't down with him anymore. All his sons are in jail prob PCd up so no one is going to touch them.

  11. everyone thinks El Mayo is next, well if you guys think that i'm sure El Mayo might have it on his mind this guy might rat him out so i'm sure he's taking the precautions

  20. No one knows shit here! It's all speculation unless you have inside information. With that said, a successful drug trafficker will not have an address listed easily. Your close allies might know your general location as far as what city they might be in. But other than that, they keep on moving. Not just from their enemies and law enforcements but their own allies that wants to take them out for what ever reason. Mayo didn't know where Chapo was at all time nor did he want him to. Betrayal is big in this business!
