Piedras Negras: Zetas Sergio Heredia (aka “Keko,” “Sobrino”) sentenced

Press release from the Department of Justice

Los Zetas Cartel Operative Sentenced to Federal Prison for Cocaine Trafficking

In San Antonio today, 44-year-old Sergio Heredia (aka “Keko,” “Sobrino”) of Piedras Negras, Mexico, was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine announced United States Attorney Richard L. Durbin, Jr., Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent in Charge Joseph Arabit, Houston Division and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Special Agent in Charge Shane Folden, San Antonio Division.

In August 2015, Heredia pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine. By pleading guilty, Heredia admitted that from January 2007 to May 2015, he conspired with others to distribute more than five kilograms of cocaine in the United States.

According to evidence in this case, Heredia and others trafficked cocaine and marijuana for distribution in San Antonio, Fort Worth and elsewhere. It was done, in part, through a San Antonio-based network of drug distributors and money launderers led by 34–year-old San Antonio resident Walter Jacobo. This investigation revealed that the source of drug supply to Jacobo’s organization, as well as several other organizations involved in this scheme, was the Los Zetas Cartel. Together, they were responsible for the trafficking of more than 180,000 pounds of marijuana, hundreds of kilograms of cocaine, in excess of $18 million in U.S. currency, dozens of firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition.

This investigation has resulted in the conviction of 18 individuals on federal charges. Twelve (12) have been sentenced; six (6) remain in custody pending sentencing. Sentences range from 20 years in federal prison to probation. On January 19, 2017, Jacobo was sentenced to ten years in federal prison followed by five years of supervised release for his role in the scheme.

This case resulted from an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) investigation conducted by a High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) San Antonio group comprised of investigators from DEA, HSI, Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigation, San Antonio Police Department, Hollywood Park Police Department and the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.


The principal mission of the OCDETF program is to identify, disrupt and dismantle the most serious drug trafficking, weapons trafficking and money laundering operations, and those primarily responsible for the nation’s illegal drug supply.

  2. Light sentence! Definitely cooperative circumstances led to this outcome. Is this justice? Many may dispute the courts verdict. However being said and done, many indictments were probably attained.
    Leaving us with the conclusion that justice did prevail. Moreover, hopefully wiser choices will be a factor upon release.

  5. I think in the next 10 years, or so, all states in USA will legalize marijuana. Here is a very interesting map (animated .gif) showing "canabis legalization"

    2. The mexican pot grown outside is of poor quality compared with pot grown indoors under controlled conditions by experts. Mexican dt organizations have switched focus to glass, chiva, and coca.

    3. Indoor home grown pot fed steroids and forbidden illegal growth factor mutant genes is for pussies.
      Being a mariguanos is about the natural lift, natural grown grifa provides, including the nits, spiders and lice, where the natural nutrients and high are, there is also the rebel factor of it being tax free because of our puros güebos, we don't to feed lazy bureaucrats more money to steal from the public coffers, unless they can use la bacha pa las tres.

  15. This site must have gotten bad approval ratings by some government for it not to post or comment for some days?
    Hope it's not the case here. But unfortunately government censure ships are known to occur.
    Looking forward to your return.

    3. @9:30 No government or big bad censor got us. Unfortunately we have the same kinds of problems regular people do - illness, computer problems, etc. Fortunately I have almost recovered from a bad bronchial infection that zapped me a couple of weeks ago and TelMex tells me that have fixed the internet service interruptions and it should work fine.

      We currently have stories in the pipeline and I am trying to finish a story I started before I got sick so we should be up and running full steam very soon.

  18. Thanks to all the commenters for you kind words and thoughts. As you know we are all volunteers and do this without financial compensation. And I think that is the best way for us to do it. Somehow I feel if I were getting paid to do this it would not be the same. Taking money for doing this would detract from heartfelt dedication that we have for BB. Anyway I am not sure they could pay me enough to do this.

    I tried to explain why I do it in a story I posted a couple of years ago. Sometime when you have read the current stories and don't have anything to do give it a read.

    http://www.borderlandbeat.com/2014/05/mexico-sometimes-i-want-cry-for-you.html

    But I think the best story that expresses why we do it is a story Buggs posted after the first full year of BB after he founded it in 2009. It is worth taking the time to read it. (BTW, you will see "Buela" mentioned several times and some of her comments. You may not have been around when "Buela" changed her name to "Chvis".)

    http://www.borderlandbeat.com/2011/01/borderland-beat-reflects-on-2010.html

    I feel honored to try to follow in those guys footsteps.
