Quintana Ro:Former police turned cartel boss its Doña Lety vs. Zetas

Mica for Borderland Beat material from El Universal & Mexico News Daily
"Zetas,  released information alleging that the Cártel de Cancún boss had been detained by police. Cartel members, believing the information, reacted and attacked the Attorney General’s office in that city."

There are no more “gentlemen’s agreements” between authorities and criminal groups in Quintana Roo, a change that has led to increased violence as the latter fight over lucrative territory for drug dealing and extortion.

A federal report obtained by the newspaper El Universal also revealed that an independent gang, referred to as the Cártel de Cancún and integrated by several former judicial officials and members of various other criminal groups, has under its control the nightclubs, bars and hotels in the hotel zone of Cancún, in Puerto Morelos, Alfredo V. Bonfil and Isla Mujeres.

The cartel, said to be headed by former Federal Police officer Leticia Rodríguez Lara, is now attempting to move into Playa del Carmen.

Doña Lety or La 40 as the gang leader is known is believed to have controlled the drug trade in the north of Quintana Roo for at least five years, and has also succeeded in infiltrating police forces and the state Attorney General’s office.

In November Rodríguez, 48,  recruited a senior official from that office who is now her chief enforcer, the report said, noting that “not only has the Attorney General’s office been infiltrated but it looks as if no one wants to investigate her and much less catch her.”

However, the gang has not been happy with that office’s recent changes in middle and senior management, presumably because some of the people who had been moved out were on its payroll.

All this has not gone unnoticed by Los Zetas, one of four gangs with a presence in the state, the others being Los Pelones, Cártel del Golfo and Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación.

The Zetas have been sidelined in recent years but are now moving to regain lost territory by clashing with Doña Lety, the report suggests.

There is a theory that the shootings in Cancún a week ago were triggered by the Zetas, who released information alleging that the Cártel de Cancún boss had been detained by police. Cartel members, believing the information, reacted and attacked the Attorney General’s office in that city.

Official figures from some years ago would indicate that the region’s drug market is worth US $1.5 billion annually, says a researcher at the Autonomous University of Quintana Roo who also believes Mexico must act and get to the root of the problem if it wishes to avoid becoming a failed state.

Juan Carlos Arriaga Rodríguez said Mexico is going through a process similar to what was seen in Colombia and warned that there is currently no light at the end of the tunnel.

“The breakdown of the Mexican political system is tremendous; never in history has there been so much corruption . . . .” he said, claiming authorities are living in a world of illusion in which governability is at risk due to the absence of a clear plan with realistic objectives.

Worries about increased violence will lead to a growing perception of insecurity, Arriaga said, observing that such perceptions were rare in the past because the government could control the information that was published.

But with social networks that kind of control is impossible today, he said.

The researcher said there is no “magic recipe” to address the situation, but pointed to criteria such as the professionalization of security forces, the impartation of justice, realistic plans and citizen participation as necessary elements.

Official response to the shootings in Cancún and those the day before in Playa del Carmen has been to send in more Federal Police.

Many of those will be housed in a new police headquarters in Playa del Carmen, a 2.8-million-peso facility whose first stone ceremony (similar to shoveling first dirt in ground breaking)  was laid Saturday.

El Universal reported that more than 250 Federal Police were deployed to the state last year, 100 to Chetumal and 150 to Cancún. But they were later shipped off to Chiapas, leaving Quintana Roo without federal security.

  1. Read this few days ago. Not surprised, former police . Knows the inns and outs of a ludicrous business opportunity. Took advantage of it.
    Cartel of Cancun. An independent group? Doubt it? Someone bigger is supplying the work and backing for her to operate.

  2. Seems like Mexico is basically a narco state to me. It's almost as if the narcos run the country just as much as the government does.

    I don't live there, all I do is read articles on BB so I am by no means an expert but is it fair to say I am right?

    2. I used to refuse to accept NARCO STATE, but I came to realize that it is true, Cancun and it's surrounding areas were protected from violence due to the visitors from all over the world, but it will soon become another acapulco, killings, beheadings etc. most of the people that live there around mercado 28 colonias are people from other parts of the country, workers if you will, that can easily be sucked into this illegal activity for a quick buck. if you can't protect your best asset, how can we expect Mexico to protect other parts of the country that have less value to the eyes of the world.

    3. I can tell you for sure that most of us who live in Mexico don't get to see much violence on a daily basis.

    5. 12:49 I have never seen mexican politicians get Presidential Pardons for drug trafficking in front of the whole nation, on all the country's tvs, much less using the excuse of "weapons for hostages" and then the US INTELLIGENCE AND GOVERNMENT rogue agents run to deposit THE QUOTAS in the banks...
      no, I have never seen that in mexico, I saw it on the US that so freely judges other nations people as "criminals".

    7. 12:49 IF all of mexico were a narco state, there would be no victims, everybody would be just moving product to the US, which is clearly not the case.

  3. I thought there was ALWAYS incredible corruption in this country. IMHO Mexico was, and still is, the Number 1 on the most corrupted countries in Northern America. The same like Russia is Number 1 in Europe.

      Your own comment contradicts your point: if Russia did control all of its territory their would be no need for Chechen wars. Russia is incredibly corrupt and out of control and it doesn't control all of its territory.

    2. Los pelones no es un cartel, es una celula que fue apoyada por Don A.B.L en sus tiempos de vida. Los lideres eran unos cholos deportados de L.A. Esos mismos fueron comamdados por la muñeca o la barbie. Peliaron un tiempo en guerrero pero no lograron mucho.
      Despues se separaron en 2 grupos los pelones y los rojos. Todas estas son celulas de A.B.L que quedaron sin la cabeza principal y ahora andan dando lastima. Ahorita gracias a eso Guerrero es un cochinero, todas las celulas de ABL se estan dando con todo en ese estado.

      Esa 40 no es nadie, solo comanda una celula, alrato se la fuman.

  10. The lion share of illicit profits are from drugs and it are those profits which is the source of corruption. Legalize all drugs and the situation will get much better.

    Consider: after 30 years of WoD, drugs are cheaper, stronger and more plentiful than ever before. Nowadays ANYBODY practically EVERYWHERE can score ANY dope he/she likes, legalization will not make that accessability worse if implemented sensibly.

  12. "The magic recipe" will never happen because EVERYONE in Mexico has to be fed up with violence and corruption. Similar to the vetting of the cartels in Colombia needs to happen to Mexico for any forward positive movement. Until then it will be the same song and dance in Mexico.

    1. 2:41 touristic centers are failing because of the pinchis turistas mariguanos, same as the US, the main problem is the secret payments and taxes and plaza fees, they leave the grameros killing and ripping off each other, they should be able to sue their bosses for minimum wages, and life insurance instead of getting caught and released by the polesias for "talking".
      By the way, the bikers that attacked the police station after the Blue Parrot murders found only one guard serving as bait and killed him, but the bikers "got caught, arrested and killed by about a hundred polesias" waiting for them, "because" of no "Doña Lety" there, but she may have been behind the polesias attack to BP, las setas are always robbing other people, pinchis maruchaneros corrientes,

  17. Authorities need to get to the root of the problem before it becomes a failed state...

    If tourist weren't looking to get high business would not be be as lucrative for others to attempt a take over. You can't blame it all on the locals. there comes a Point in life where you need to be responsible and while on vacation you need to have self control and not consume drugs. No clients no dealers!

  21. I was in Cancun this past summer and had wanted to go back to an amazing Resort. I will not go back to Quintana Ro since things are heated. It's not worth it. Unfortunately I'll be heading with friends to Jamaica or Dom Rep. Mexico needs to let Sinaloa run Mexico as it did for decades. Mexico doesn't have a drug problem it has a cultural problem and will never be fixed. Bring back the stability...be real about it with real solutions.
