CAF: Narcos extort narcos in Mexico, Victims of their own methods

Original article available at VICE
Translated by El Wachito


In less than 72 hours after the assassination of his son, Ms. Reyna Gonzales was notified: the dismembered body of a dog has been thrown next to the tombstone where his son was buried.



The dead body of the animal left a purple color and the blood fell between the trenches that form the marked letters "Efrain Alvarez Gonzalez".

Over the ribs of the dog a narcomanta was left for the family: "The whole family is next". The message was quickly fading away due to the decomposed body of the dog.

The Alvarez Gonzalez knew that the message was not for the deceased. A few hours after his assassination, the rumors were quickly spreading like gunpowder. Efrain had been assassinated by the Cartel Arellano Felix -also known as the Cartel de Tijuana-, one of the most violent cartels in the history of drug trafficking.



'The forms of execution of their victims were brutal'

The Alvarez Gonzales didn't know any details, however they knew that Efrain got involved with drug-traffickers and in a short period of time, he became a Lieutenant in charge of the East Side of Tijuana, which was known for being one of the poorest areas in the border between Mexico and the United States.

The assassination of Efrain in March of 2012 was brutal: ambushed in a mechanical workshop. He was about to start his Silverado pick up truck, when a man approached the driver window, pointed at his face and shot him at a close distance. 

Five shots were fired. Two bullets hit him in the face; the other bullets made a hole in his head, arm and waist. The handgun .380 caliber was able to make a hole in his left cheekbone.

There was blood coming out of his mouth and ears and while Efrain was losing blood, his partner, a young man named Abel Gonzalez, was able to get off the vehicle, however the bullets reached him while he was trying to escape. 

Document of the 'Luz Verde' Investigation by the FBI

The Alvarez Gonzales family rapidly received a second warning: the tombstone of his son and his friend were removed from graveyard and abandoned in the patio of Ms. Reyna.

The drug traffickers stole the tombstones from the graveyard and cautiously placed them in the front patio of Ms. Reyna. According to the investigations, Efrain owed large amounts of money to the Cartel de Tijuana and their next move was to scare his mother in order to extort her. 

"I will make them suffer and they will leave the house", said a sicario of the cartel to another group of sicarios, during a phone call. 


The telephone "tapping" was part of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation of the United States (FBI) known as "Luz Verde(Green Light)", an demonstrated how the Cartel Arellano Felix, extorted Ms. Reyna, in order to take ownership of her house.

According to information recollected by VICE News -documents of the Federal and State government of California, FBI investigations, the DEA and experts in matters of drug trafficking-, extortion between cells of drug traffickers is an strategy used to finance the so called "war on drugs".

In Tijuana, the north border of the country, the dispute started due to an internal conflict in the Cartel Arellano Felix. After the arrest of his leader, Francisco Javier Arellano 'El Tigrilllo' in August of 2006, resulted in a dispute between the leaders in charge of the AFO(Arellano Felix Organization) cells.

Since then, the AFO instituted a new method of extortion: Narcos extorting other enemy narcos, and years later everything came back at then, when their own leaders fell victims of their own methods.

The "Palillos" extort the Arellano


Since he was a young man, Cesar Uribe had been involved in the sale and distribution of marijuana in the border. In the 1990's, when the Cartel Arellano Felix converted Baja California in their Plaza, Uribe was already trafficking for them.

When 2006 came, he already had move up the ranks of the drug trafficking organization: he bought a house in Eastlake, which was one of more expansive areas to live in San Diego back then, and he distributed drugs to several states of the west coast of the country.

After Felipe Calderon declared the war on organized crime, other drug traffickers, like Uribe, decided to move their operations to California.

There he met David Valencia, a drug trafficker that commanded an independent cell known as "Los Palillos". He was a strong man, 42 years old and with an intimidating look. They made some business, and Valencia sold cheaper drugs to Uribe.

Later on, during June of 2006, Cesar Uribe received a phone call: Valencia accused him of owing him 70,000$ of a shipment of marijuana. Uribe was confused and rapidly realized: it was an extortion and he couldn't report it to anyone, because, how was a drug trafficker supposed  to call the police to report an extortion?


'The Palillos were motivated by vengeance and greed'.


The Palillos gained fame among drugtraffickers and sicarios for being extremely violent and for the brutal assassinations of those who didn't pay their fees of extortion. Uribe knew what happened to another local trafficker, and was terrified. The body of the other trafficker was found in the trunk of a stolen car in San Diego and wooden sticks(Sticks translates to Palillo) were left on top of his body, along with a message to intimate others and to let others know what would happen if they didn't pay their fees to Los Palillos. 

The Uribe family paid 50,000$ of the 70,000$ to Los Palillos of a debt that never existed.

According to declassified archives from investigators of the State of California, The Palillos were a cell of the Cartel Arellano Felix who became independent.

Everything happened when their leader, Victor Rojas Lopez, Alias 'El Palillo', nicknamed like that because he was extremely skinny, was assassinated by members of another Cartel Arellano cell, in a dispute. Jorge Rojas Lopez, his brother, became their new leader and decided to separate from the cartel, and decided to take vengeance with everyone that was part of the Cartel Arellano Felix.

According to a report from Pandillas Sin Fronteras, published in 2014 by the State of California, 'The Palillos' were a transnational criminal organization dedicated to extortion, drugtrafficking, thief, kidnapping and murder. Even though they are well known by American authorities, in Mexico there is no registry of them.

"Los Palillos were motivated by vengeance and greed. Their victims were people identified as operators of the Arellano Felix Organization, who they believe that had large amounts of money and drugs."

Extortion: As profitable as the sale of drugs


"In the last decade, extortion became profitable as the same level of the sale of drugs, that narcos ended up extorting each other. The end of the code of honor between drug lords", said Gilbert Gonzalez, who worked more than 20 years for the DEA.

Before "extortion was only limited to business. They came into a bakery saying 'I like your place, you have done a good job, it would be terrible if something bad happen to you, your family or your business, the only thing that you have to do is pay me a small percentage of your profits, and I will give you a life insurance and a business insurance", said Gilbert, who was able to infiltrate several cartels and was a witness to the evolution of drug trafficking organizations.

Since the 'drug war' of Felipe Calderon started, drastic changes in the movement and sale of drugs were reported and "if it doesn't move, it doesn't sell" said the ex-DEA agent that is in charge of the Association of Narcotic Officers of Texas. "If the workers are not able to move the product, it will generate a crisis in the criminal organizations".

"Drug lords had to rely on extortion to generate profits. The first victims were merchants and businessman, then they ended up extorting each other", explained this Ex-Agent, who was part of the team that investigated the assassination of undercover agent Enrique Camarena 'Kiki' in hands of the Cartel de Guadalajara in 1985.

'The first victims were merchants, then they ended up extorting each other'.


 According to Victor Clark Alfaro, an expert in drug trafficking and extortion issues of Mexican citizens, the crime of extortion is extremely profitable for criminal organizations because there is a low number of  criminal complaints due to death threats. 

Intimidation is a key element for a successful extortion. "The forms of execution of their victims were brutal, because they stopped using firearms and started dismembering their victims and dissolving them in acid. This created a climate of fear.

"And everybody knows that the threats of drug traffickers are real death sentences", according to an investigator from the University of San Diego.

-Why is extortion among drug traffickers more profitable?

-Because they handle their finances in cash and because if the majority of the population are scared of filing a criminal complaint through the authorities due to fears of retaliation, imagine how the narcos are even more aware of the capabilities of their enemies. They are also unavailable to justify the legal possession of cash, jewelry and cars. 

With the beginning of the 'war on drugs' of Felipe Calderon, the extortion in Baja California were on a rise, according to an analysis of the statistics of the Semaforo Delictivo Nacional.

According to the database of VICE news, in the year of 2010, extortion's duplicated in the entity of Baja California. In 2006 we had a total of 329 and in 2010, authorities reported 506 cases of extortion.  The years of 2011 and 2012, continued with high levels of extortion and match with the levels of cartel related violence of those times.

Extortion in Baja California

They fell for 50,000 dollars 


Eduardo Tostado Gonzales, a 33 year old male that had the body of wrestler, arrived at his home in Chula Vista, California in May 22nd. He inserted his house key in the lock and opened the door, then a white sheet on the floor of his house caught his eye.

"Urgent, call this number".

For his neighbors, Tostado was a successful Mexican businessman. He was born in Ensenada, Baja California and attended the best schools, in which he was able to socialize with the sons of the most prominent people of the state of Baja California. At a really young age, he became the owner of a seafood restaurant called Mariscos El Pacifico.

That night of 2007, before he called the number that appeared on the sheet that he found on his doorsteps, he checked the recordings of the security cameras that he installed in his luxury residence. A man knocked the door twice and when nobody responded he proceeded to slip the message through the door of the house. Tostado reviewed the video twice, however, he was not able to identify the individual that left the message.

Intrigued by the message, he left his home and called the number from a public telephone. A 'Robert' was on the other side of the line and straight forward warned him that he would be kidnapped if he didn't pay 50,000$ the next day.

"I will call you tomorrow, wait till tomorrow", responded Eduardo Tostado Gonzalez.

Documents of an interview of the FBI with Tostado

That same night, he crossed the border and made his way to his restaurant in Tijuana. He showed the pictures that he took of the monitor of the cameras, to his clients and waiters.

Several people recognize the man: his name was Juan Arvizu and he was a dangerous drug trafficker that had worked for the Cartel Arellano Felix and now was operating for "Los Palillos". Mariscos El Pacifico was the perfect place to speak -among loud and live narcocorridos music and bottles of Buchanan's- about drug lords.

Eduardo Tostado was a really simple man with good manners, however, he was one of the principal money launderers of the Cartel Arellano Felix, and the restaurant had the perfect facade.

At the age of 33 he was a close friend of the sons of Benjamin Arellano Felix, who at one moment was the leader of the Cartel de Tijuana, and was incarcerated in the maximum security prison of Mexico.

Tostado was also the owner of several car dealerships, restaurants, two houses, and an all terrain vehicle valued at 150,000 USD, who had been given to him by Ismael Higuera 'El Mayel', a veteran money launderer of the Cartel de Tijuana.

'El Mayel' 

Eduarto Tostado was a perfect victim for extortion from Los Palillos, the organization that extorted druglords who could never be denounce to the authorities. Their 'reputation' back them up, that's why Tostado immediately offered them 5000 USD as a first payment, however Los Palillos perceive that quantity as an offense and they hung the phone after threaten him of the consequences.

FBI documents

Months later, Los Palillos accomplished their promise: they utilized a beautiful law student. She had thick lips and curly hair. They infiltrated her into the gym that Tostado often visited, and with her charms he quickly fell in love.

Nancy Mendoza, the law student used by Los Palillos to catch Tostado . Nancy Mendoza received life in prison 

According to declassified information of the FBI, after several encounters in the gym and phone calls, the young lady asked him to meet her in a house on Point Dume Street of Chula Vista, in June 8th of 2007.

Nancy was an assistant of the Secretary of the municipal Government of Tijuana while she was a student. This is a picture of her taken before she heard her sentence. She received 2 life imprisonments and 20 years.

At the moment he arrived at the house, he was beaten and when he fell on the floor he dropped a bottle of coñac and a box of condoms. The following days he was tortured and Los Palillos threaten that they would murder his wife if he didn't pay them one million dollars. His family quickly reunited with a team of FBI agents.

Eight days after he was kidnapped, Eduardo Tostado was liberated and even though he confessed to being a member of the Arellano Felix Cartel, he was put in a witness protection program, in exchange of information that could lead to the capture of Los Palillos.

In the year of 2014, the leader of Los Palillos, Jorge Rojas, was sentenced to 12 life imprisonment sentences in California. During the court hearing, the defense argue that he was forced into the cartel because of extreme poverty. Rojas grew up in a dump yard, his parents were trash pickers, so he decided to traffic drugs and relied on extortion in order to ascend the social ladder. Rojas was able to avoid death.

According to PGR, the Cartel Arellano Felix operates in Baja California through 3 cells: El Chan, El Jorquera and El Kieto.

Juan Lorenzo Vargas Gallardo 'El Chan'


The statistics of extortion grew in the last decade by a 61%

When Felipe Calderon came to power in December of 2006, he declared a "war on drugs". After 11 days of taking power, he promised to dissolve the structures of organize crime and to eliminate crimes, such as extortion: "Its about preserving the safety of the Mexican families so that their children can grow up in a safe climate". A decade later the statiscs revealed that the situation of crime has not change for the better. 

In 2006, there were 3157 claims of extortion and in 2013, 8196 claims were reported. 


This is just the tip of the iceberg, because this are only the reports that the authorities have received.  Unfortunately, extortion is one of the less reported crimes. 

According to statistics of the Semaforo Delictive, the states with the highest incidence of extortion are the State of Mexico, Mexico city, and Nuevo Leon.

The other day one our readers was asking about "Los Pelones", who were a group of sicarios that worked for El Teo and for "El Guero Camaron" of the Cartel Arellano Felix.... The following is a video were "El Guero Camaron" orders local policeman to abandon the area of Colonia Libertad so his group of sicarios "Los Pelones" could executed AFI Agent Eduardo Reyes...

Eduardo Reyes was an agent in charge of combating small scale drug dealing in Tijuana, he was executed in his own office. Later on the AFI (Federal agency of investigation, has now been disolved) arrested 12 municipal cops for their participation in the execution.

  14. Regarding the question "Are Los Pallillos still operating? No. "Los Palillos," after terrorizing San Diego County for over 4 years, were put to rest by the SD District Attorney's Office and a group of law enforcement officers from several local, federal and a state agency who came together and realized we were being victimized by a rogue cell of the AFO targeting anyone in SD associated with the AFO. They abducted dozens of SD Residents and killed more than half of them before being arrested in June 2007. The SD Prosecutors, unlike their counterparts across the street, prosecuted these twenty or so criminals so that they will never see daylight again, even going death penalty on some of them. They were a microcosm of the larger AFO, but paid a much steeper price than those prosecuted in the federal system who never went to trial and received sweet deals. The DA's Office sent the right message to those who bring their cartel practices over the border. thanks for protecting us!

  18. This story is totally different from what I read long ago about los palillos. According to what I read los palillos where not about extortion but instead the where out for revenge. The move from Tijuana because the leader was killed by orders of Ramon Arellano. And they decided to take revenge on anyone working on drug distribution for the Arellano Felix in San Diego. Extortion had nothing to do with it.

  23. In 2002 Cholo and one of Victor's subordinates in the Los Palillos cell got into an argument in a bar club over a girl, which caused friction between the two AFO cells. Victor intervened in the argument. As a consequence of the argument, the AFO ordered the murder of Victor. After Victor's murder in late 2002, his brother─Jorge Rojas-Lopez, who was a member of Victor's Los Palillos cell─fled Tijuana, and he and the cell split from the AFO and relocated to San Diego. The cell kept its name, Los Palillos. Los Palillos was connected to kidnappings and homicides committed in San Diego between 2004 and 2007, including a triple murder in August 2004, the murder of a man 7 nicknamed "Camaron" in August 2005, and the kidnapping of Abelino Inzunza-Uriarte on April 13, 2006. The victims of the triple murder were drug traffickers working for the AFO. They were lured to a home, where they were killed and their money and drugs were stolen. The victims' bodies were left in a vehicle that was driven from the home and parked on a residential street in Chula Vista. Warning signs to the AFO were written in the dust on the vehicle. In June 2007 the members of Los Palillos included Jorge Rojas-Lopez (nicknamed "Palillo" or "Jorgillo"); Guillermo Moreno-Garcia ("Memo"); his half-brother, Carlos Pena ("Morro"); Jesus Gonzalez Trujillo; Juan Francisco Estrada-Gonzalez; Jose Carlos Rangel Hernandez, Jesus Lopez-Becerra; his brother, Gerardo Gabriel Lopez-Becerra; Jorge Moreno; Juan Laureano-Arvizu ("Chaquetin"); Ernesto Ayon; Juan Frausto-Lopez; Ponciano Lopez-Frausto; Pedro Corrales; Eduardo Monroy ("El Arquitecto"); Nancy Michelle Mendoza-Moreno; defendant Jose Olivera-Beritan ("Chino" or "Asere"); and defendant David Valencia. Many of the members also used aliases, including Beritan, whose aliases were Onel Jimenez and William Smith. Beritan was born in Havana, Cuba. 2. Properties connected to Los Palillos a. The Garber Avenue safe house In 2006 Emmanuel Nwagbo owned a two-story, five-bedroom residence located on Garber Avenue in the Paradise Hills area of San Diego. Nwagbo testified that on October 16 that year, a man named Ignacio Peredo and a woman named Norma Berumen 8 signed a one-year agreement to rent the property. Berumen was with two children and another man she said was her husband. In December 2006 Berumen told Nwagbo that Peredo was her brother. Suspicious about who was living in the residence, Nwagbo went there and met Peredo. However, Nwagbo was not allowed inside the house. The rent was paid regularly until January 2007, when the payments stopped. Nwagbo called Peredo, who sent by overnight mail a rent payment in the form of a money order for April and May 2007. The package was from a UPS store and the return address was in the name of Onel Jimenez (Beritan's alias). b. The Point Dume Court safe house On May 26, 2007, a real estate agent rented a residence located on Point Dume Court in Chula Vista to a Mexican citizen named Luis Armando Gonzalez-Perez. The agent knew Valencia, having rented a different home in Eastlake to him on an earlier occasion. c. The horse ranch In 2007 Gilberto Corral owned a 15-acre horse ranch in Imperial Beach less than 10 miles from the border. Corral leased some stables to Fabian Gonzalez, and Gonzalez subleased stables to others, including Valencia, Uribe, and Gonzalez's brother, Adrian.5 Ernesto Ayon slept at the property Gonzalez rented from Corral and helped clean and feed the horses. 5 Gonzalez's brother, Adrian, is not the major league baseball player with the same name who once played with the San Diego Padres.

  25. Just because it is part of a case it does not mean it actually happened that way. This is where we learn that history does no tell the truth, it only shows the point of view of the one who tells the story. The few of us that know how that feud got started know that it happened just like J said on 1/23 at 6:24 pm

  29. you people act and comment like narco historians always looking for minute information on people who would piss on you and smile even though they dont even know you.you moan about trevinos etc handing christmas presents but what do you do?nothing.you could set up crowding funding and help your people and still report the news for the people mexico.if you love your country prove it to the poor souls of your country many of whom dream of internet connection which most of the posters here have in there homes.the freedom of press comes with a duty of care both to its contributors and its readers but also to offer the downtrodden,the weak and innocent charity. cudaite
