|Alberto Avila "El Chacal" and his brother Jesus Omar|
(Tijuano´s note: In past weeks several corpses have been left in Zona Norte with banners threatening Aquiles and Rana´s people for "coming near Zona Norte", the guy arrested has been continuously mentioned as the one responsible for this)
Alberto Avila Alvarado aka "El Chacal" was arrested yesterday in Playas de Tijuana by agents of the Municipal Police. Avila Alvarado is believed to be the successor of his deceased brother-in-law Manuel Toscano Rodriguez aka "El Mono".
"El Chacal" was captured in an operation done by Tijuana´s Municipal Police Special Forces and members of their intelligence branch. At the moment of his capture, Avila Alvarado was accompanied by his brother Jesus Omar Avila, both of them were in possession of a AK-47 rifle and an undisclosed but considerable amount of drugs.
According to intelligence reports from the Municipal Public Safety Agency, "El Chacal" is one of the main providers to retail dealers in Zona Norte and is currently in dispute with a guy nicknamed "El Alejo".
His brother-in-law was Manuel Toscano Rodriguez, an alleged cell leader from the Arellano Felix Organization and the guy in charge of managing the criminal activities in the famed Zona Norte area up until his execution last month outside the State Court.
Both of the detainees are currently under custody from the State´s Attorney General Office facing charges of illegal gun possession and crimes against health(drug charges).
It is worth mentioning "El Chacal" has been arrested several times before this operation, all of those times he has been caught in possession of weapons, drugs and money and all the time he has been left free, much like "El Mono" was before him.
