Heavy drug shipment falls in Ensenada

Heavy drug shipment falls in Ensenada

Less then a week after the arrest of rival cell leader in Ensenada, El Mass de Los Aquiles and El Tres Animales de CAF, a shipment worth millions was seized by Los PEP, the same agency that made these arrests, and similar arrests in Tijuana in recent weeks. 

A single 24 year old man was arrested in connection, and possession of the shipment, Solomon Rafael Arriga, of Culiacan, Sinaloa.  Though, seeing that a single man could not even transport 1/3 of this lost product, it should be assumed others were involved.  Circumstances of the arrest and seizure were not available, but the figures are impressive.  

634 kilos of crystal, 48 kilos of cocaine, and 80 kilograms of heroin, white or black is not specified. The crystal likely straight from Sinaloa is worth an easy 2 million, at roughly 1500 a pound.  The cocaine would be around 20/kilo in Culiacan, and 24 in Tijuana, is another million, in the upper 20's upon importation.  The heroin, which has flooded through Southern California, and the United States in recent months, and years, is around 30,000 a kilo in San Diego.  Likely 15,000 or so at cost price, after the purchase of opium, and the conversion process into black tar heroin.  (Anyone wants to weigh in with purchase price of opium, plus converting into tar)

* I made an error, calculating the meth kilos, as pounds.  I've corrected that.  

The 1100 kilos seized of the three drugs are worth an easy 2 million at a conservative estimate, far from the kind of staggering loss in the tunnel found late April in Tijuana/Otay Mesa, but a heavy loss nonetheless. The shipment was likely being bound over for transport through Ensenada and up to Tijuana, to be held briefly, and crossed in smaller loads.  Some of the crystal and heroin may be sold to retail outlets in Tijuana.  

The role of plaza bosses is to coordinate and assist in the transport of product  that comes through their city, by using their local contacts to ensure the loads safety.  Product that falls, reflects badly on the plaza bosses, and many are dismissed (with prejudice) after one too many accidents.  The loads are often seized when rivals inform, bribes are not paid, or larger bribes by rivals are paid.  

The chatter will read CJNG, but, the shipment is so closely aligned with other Sinaloa shipments, it's much more likely it belonged to a group operating within that structure.  Also, the recent arrests of two people who would have some knowledge of a shipment like that, isn't likely a coincidence.  Note the markings on the kilos, 'Machin', or 'heavy' as in 'working heavy'.....

  4. I think your price on meth is wrong because at a one million or 800 thousands puts the price per pound at 650 to 750. In San Diego you can not even get an oz at less than 1000 bucks.

    5. Meth goes for around 1100-1300 (per lb) before it even crosses the border from TJ to SD. Once it hits SD and goes up to LA, it'll be anywhere between 2300-2800(per lb) depending on the purity.

  5. It's probably CJNG but you never know it might be cds. CDS lost all expects of the Tijuana plaza and it's ovious because of all the big resent busts. Either it's CJNG or CDS drug being busted since CJNG started to claim that plaza with CAF.

    2. TJ newspapers reported it as belonging to CDS. They are still the ones that move the most weight. They take hits like this all the time and just keep going. It's been happening for decades. The war on drugs is a joke that has caused Mexico hundreds of thousands of lives.

  6. @7:33 the mark up on it is phenomenal, that is why they are super lab-ing it themselves. You have to wait how many months for poppies or ganja to grow? This stuff takes only days & hours.

  9. How is 634 kilos of meth only worth 800k to a million? is there a super sale on meth?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Probably wasn't too difficult to find the load. All they had to do was look for the flatbed with 800 Tupperware containers in the back.

  12. Meth hasn't been 1000/OZ in Southern California for years, I'll just quote the AG report which puts it at 3,000/pound in San Diego, roughly 400 an ounce.

    They are like 150 in Tijuana.

  13. I'm amazed by the fact that soo many people talk crap about CDS and that their loosing this and that.Most of the comments are from people who are not mexican,do not live near or within the plazas,yet they read Blog Del Narco and seem to know it all.Jejeje.None of them would dare speak badly about CDS within any Plaza,correct,any Plaza in mexico.No matter who's Plaza it is because they would not make it back from their vacation,hotel or house after doing so.Real deal to the fake haters that do not know what's up.Tough guys,go record yourself talking crap about CDS or any other cartel and post it on BB or Youtube.None of you would do it keyboard warriors.Analysts read the comments and laugh,as I do.Maybe I do not like Mencho,Zetas,Etc, but I do not talk sh!t as they are in every Plaza just like CDS.Learn to respect people as you never know who they are affiliated with.Waiting patiently for the videos cartel nut huggers.Have a great day and go read a book that is recommended by the 1 of the best BB reporters-Chiviz M.

  14. Something that was very interesting to me was that price of the heroin I had no idea it cost 20k a kilo to produce heroin considering the profit margins on other drugs if cost that much to produce you would think it would be wholesale much much higher than 30k more like 70-80k is that accurate that it cost 20k to produce a key of h?? Also if the Coke is worth 20k in culican and 24 in tj how much is it worth once crosses? Not the end price in ny or something but the price for first person to touch in us? I always thought Coke was much much cheaper than that in Mexico. I Remember years back maybe 10 years ago a buddy was into that stuff and was 8-9 k in northern Mex and 5 in southern.

    1. True enough. But since the late 60's big H prices have plummeted while purity has increased dramatically. I am no expert in agribusiness, but I supect that your ROI is much improved if your purity is higher and you have larger areas under grow...one would think that as with marijuana in Canada, etc. you have more indoor grows with year around production.

  16. Like I said the only reason CDS is having an internal struggle over Baja California Sur is because there has to be a new SUPER LUCRATIVE smuggling route thru that desert/peninsula and also the 2000 plus miles of coast line Baja California has including the sea of Cortez. Thats the only route left that has minimal federal police presence. Also if CDS had no presence in TJ why would there be so many cartels fighting over the Baja plaza? Makes no sense to deny CDS in TJ folks.

    1. Thank you for your post. FYI....as the 'crow flies' (como se dice in Espanol?) it is ~792 miles from Tj to Cabo. This is assuming that the "crow" has GPS and is not tweeking. Viva Mexico
