The capture of "R-2" damages the leadership of Los Rojos

Translated by Otis B Fly-Wheel for Borderland Beat from a Milenio article

Subject Matter: Cartel del Golfo, Marco Antonio Haro Rodriguez "El R-2"
Recommendation: see link to article on R-2 capture by BB reporter Lucio R

This past week Marco Antonio Haro Rodriguez was detained, leader of  the armed wing of the Cartel del Golfo, and to whom is attributed a great part of the violence in Tamaulipas and the North of Veracruz.



Reporter: Ignacio Alzaga
Altamira* The Federal Police have affected the structure of the command and operations of Los Rojos, the violent armed wing of the Cartel del Golfo, whose members were identified as allegedly responsible of the kidnapping and homicide of the father and son of Cinema Director, Alejandro Gomez Monteverde, in September of 2015.




The Federal Government gave out an intelligence report that Milenio had access to, in which it indicates that one of the principal objectives of the authorities is to degrade the cartel and its group of sicario's, to whom they attribute a large part of the violence in Tamaulipas and the North of Veracruz, together with Los Zetas.

They estimate that Los Rojos control the major part of the earnings obtained by drug trafficking and other crimes perpetrated by the Cartel del Golfo.

The document details the capture of the leader of this group of gunmen, Marco Antonio Haro Rodriguez, "R-2" or "Tonin", and his two Lieutenants, registered this past week in Altamira.

R-2 operated principally plaza boss of the South zone of Tamaulipas and the North Zone of Veracruz; was arrested together with Eloy Fernando de Angel Hernandez, R-7, allegedly in charge of ordering kidnappings and extortion.

According to the Federal Government,  the latter participated in a direct manner, in the planning and assassination of Juan Manuel Gomez Fernandez and Juan Manuel Gomez Monteverde, father and brother of the Cinema Director, on the 4th of September last year.

Also apprehended was Omar Garcia Torres, "Cabo R-12", "El Panzon" or "Netas", security chief for Marco Antonio Haro Rodriguez.

Tuesday, the three members of Los Rojos were transferred to the installation of SEIDO in Mexico City, then to Cefereso #14, in Durango.

They will face charges before a Federal Judge for the crimes or possession of firearms, illegally detaining someone in the modality of kidnapping and being members of organized crime, among other charges.

Intelligence work

According to investigations and intelligence work of the Federal Police, the detained were part of the leadership of the armed wing of the Cartel del Golfo, Los Rojos control a major part of the illicit product profits of drug trafficking to the United States, kidnappings, extortion, business extortion ( cobro de piso) of business and impresarios, as well as pipeline hydro-carbon theft from Pemex.

The aliases and nicknames of these three subjects corroborate to the level of command that they occupy inside the structure of Los Rojos, of whom they identify with the letter R, followed by a number that assigned according to their criminal activities.

According to the report, after the capture and extradition of Osiel Cardenas Guillen, who was the top boss of the Cartel del Golfo; and the death of his brother Antonio Cardenas Guillen, Tony Tormenta, and the later arrest of Eduardo Costilla Sanchez, El Coss, the criminal organization has registered a fracture that has prolonged for years.

This situation has led to a series of confrontations between antagonistic groups, as well as the separation of Los Zetas, who were their armed wing before they formed their own cartel.

In the South zone of Tamaulipas and its frontier with Veracruz ( from Villa Manuel to Panuco ), there operate no less than six different criminal groups. They are "Dragones", "Calimanes", "Freisitas", "Camellos", "Escorpiones" and "Los Rojos".

Silvestre Haro Rodriguez, R-1, or "El Chive", brother of R-2, has achieved taking command of five of these organizations, except "Dragones", who since 2014 have sustained violent conflicts for control of criminal activities.

R-1 operates as plaza boss of Tampico, Altamira, Ciudad Madero, Miramar and Gonzalez, in Tamaulipas; as well as Pueblo Viejo, Tampico el Alto and Panuco, in Veracruz.

He was captured by Federal forces on 14th of August of 2015, and his place has been filled by Marco Antonio Haro, detained with his two accomplices on 8th of April of this year.

The arrest was made in an operation in which participated elements from the Intelligence Division of the Federal Police, with support from the Marina as well as the PGR.

The authorities confiscated two pistols with eight magazines of different calibers, and AR-15, a fragmentation grenade, four telephones and a Wrangler Jeep with circulation plates of XHM1517.

Investigations link R-7 with the planning and murder of the family members of Cinema Director, Alejandro Gomez Monteverde, Director of the film "Bella", that had left the International Film Festival in Toronto, where it won "Peoples Choice". He also directed the film "Little Boy", as well as producing films for the actor Eduardo Verastegui.

The two were kidnapped by and armed group and their remains were found days after they asked for and received part of a million dollar ransom.

They were kidnapped after leaving their house in Tampico, their bodies were found on the waste ground of El Chachalaco, Pueblo Viejo, in the North of Veracruz.

    2. Yea right! How's Quintero doing on his sentence? Evidently everyone knows that in Mexico money talks and bullshit walks. What that means is Mexico has the best judges money can buy in Mexico's corrupt judicial system. Unless this guy is extradited to the USA he'll be out in no time. High value target is like winning the lottery in Mexico.

    3. @5:31 Quintero was one of the original Godfathers, had a WHOLE lot of money, and a very powerful man. He served 28 years of his 40 year sentence.
      So he did get out early

      You referenced Quintero so I guess when you say R2 will "get out in no time", you consider 28 years as "no time".

      Delete
    4. Can you imagine 28 years in solitary confinement or even in prison. These guys are getting caught or killed at a much younger age. They get infamous and make a lot of money for a short time. After they are caught they can no longer have the touch and comfort a beautiful women. No one to sleep with them by their side each night. No one to laugh with and hold hands. Not be able to enjoy their offspring. No sitting around a fire at night and drinking with friends. No hearing Mariachi's live. I would rather be dead. So go ahead and see how far you get, have some sex with some hot girls that are not really interested in you in the first place, and then be placed against your will in a small room with 4 walls, a ceiling and a floor. You will lose your will and your life will have been wasted. Best to work hard, make a little money and be happy.

    1. Says someone who is obsessed with chapo or is only knowledgeable of what the media allows them to see about Cartel news. I think it's funny how people swing on Chapos nuts because he is the poster child for Cartel violence in the USA. Here's a little truth for you....Chapo is only worshipped by his own people. Itd be like Tookie Williams the founder of Crips having a poster of Suge Knight(a Piru..Blood) on his wall. Get a grip. Not everyone cares about Chapo

      Delete
    2. Chapo didn't control all of Mexico especially Eastern Mexico. Tamaulipas & Nuevo Leon have always been in control by Zetas & Golfos for a very long time, way back since when Don Juan Guerra back in the 30s then Don Juan Garcia in the 70s. Chapo used to dream about having Tamaulipas & Nuevo Leon back in his hands. He only own them for a little while before el Sr. Osiel beat the heck out of el Chapo.

    3. Agree with 9:54 who cares about these low level drug barons they don't push as much weight as Chapo Trevino and the list goes Chapo is True Narco History (compare his story with others) have a lecture for the day Chapo Escobar Amado Carrillo Al Capone al 100

    4. Da FBI was following Tupac the night he was murdered, and recording him on camera, as usual, but the cameras malfunctioned somehow...the FBI has posters of Suge, and they are not "WANTED" posters...

  8. Tijuano or Chivis , in a official Facebook page " Puros De La Tía" a post was featured tonight regarding the status of the AFO in Tijuana. The scripted interview was ansewered by an active Arellano Felix crime family member. Maybe that can shed some light to the obscured mafia agenda in the Tijuana underworld.

But there's been more shootouts since then so who knows what's going on.

    4. Reynosa and moros should be one whole group and kick los zetas out of tamaulipas bit instead were trying to kI'll each other when it was metros vs ciclones pretty sure Cortez doesn't want to join them since they killed his son Cortez jr

  16. According to recent developments there is a multi fragmentation and re-organization in the east coast of mexico regarding previous held establishments, cdg seen in deep disarray though zetas seen much more reinforced and in control of the area, however it goes without saying that narco flow on the other side continues unabated, cds seen operating in pot shipments recently a sign clear degeneration ftom the hard stuff to light products, best regards from a friend in Taiwan!
