After the detention of Orso Ivan Gastelum Cruz, "Cholo Ivan", the group of criminals that he controlled has fractured into various cells with different leaders, advised a commander of the Ninth military zone, Rogelio Teran Contreras.
The military commander said that the criminals that were under the command of "El Cholo" continued operating in the central North region of the State.
"There has been an area where he has always been working, the group of Cholo Ivan and all the remnants have stayed there".
"The divided groups continue operating, carrying out hydro carbon theft, extortion, vehicle robbery, and crimes of that nature, these groups are still alive", he indicated.
He mentioned that each one of the splinter groups had its own leader, but that they all continued operating for the Sinaloa cartel.
"There are various leaders that are operating there, they fractured, but continue operating in the area of Mocorito and all of Buenavista, Caitime, and all their zones", he indicated.
El Cholo Ivan was captured on the 8th of January in Los Mochis, together with his leader from the Sinaloa cartel Joaquin El Chapo Guzman Loera.
