The Capture of El Marlon de Los Aquiles
As Sanchez Tadoaba and other colonies are bloodied by the day in a barrage of killings, faces and names are revealed...The shadowy names that are whispered, written in federal charging documents, fingered by informants and snitches, sang in corridos outside homes on both sides of the border. 'El Marlon' is said to be a top lieutenant of El Aquiles, whom has seen his fortunes reversed, in the last few years.
Marlon, of course, is not his closest known lieutenant, but allegedly a top subordinate, and one charged with the January killings at the cockfight ring in Ensenada, which has had a messy narrative construction, but now has seemingly fallen into place.
The arrests have been linear, and centered around the Ensenada area, which is apparently an Aquiles stronghold, as many of his command have been arrested there, in addition to large crystal and marijuana seizures recently. Another lieutenant of El Marlon was captured in Febuaury and accused of directly participating in the cockfighting killings.
Marco Tullio Carillo, 'Marlon' is a former municipal police officer, formerly affiliated with Arellano Felix, as recently as 2010, which may mean under the Los Teos banner. Nearly all of the Aquiles/Tigre factions are made up of these, Teos soldiers became the Sinaloa lieutenants, and their subordinates, in the fall out after 2008. Marlon, like many others in similar positions had multiple arrests and warrants for weapons possessions and drugs, and was released several times.
