The alleged Plaza Boss for the Valles Region of the CJNG, Geovanni Castro Urbano, "El Duende" was captured together with three of his bodyguards after a confrontation with groups of elite Federal Police and Sedena in the Town of Ameca, revealed Government functionaries.
The operation to capture "El Duende", identified as one of the principal operators of "El Mencho", leader of the CJNG, started a little after 7 am Tuesday.
More than fifty Military broke into a finca located on Calle Educacion crossroads with Calle Emilio Zapata, in the delegation of San Antonio de Matute.
Witnesses declared that the Military were shot at by the alleged criminals.
"I was with my grandsons watching the television and on the point of taking them to school when it all started. I heard the shots from the house, went outside to see what was happening and a Soldier said to me: little mother go inside your house and close the door", said the woman.
The Federal functionaries indicate that during the operation they achieved the detention of Giovanni Castro Urbano who also goes by the alias Juan Carlos Marquez Perez, they also detained three of his bodyguards.
According to information supplied by Federal functionaries, "El Duende" replaced Heriberto Acevedo Cardenas, "El Gringo" inside the criminal organization, when "El Gringo" died during a confrontation with elements of the Jalisco "One" Force in the Town of Zacoalco de Torres, on March 24th this year.

The death of "El Gringo" set off a series of violent acts against the Jalisco Security Authorities, which culminated in the deaths of 15 Security Officers of the Unified Force when they were ambushed at San Sebastian del Oeste.
