The expansion and threats of CJNG in Tijuana

Translated by Otis B Fly-Wheel for Borderland Beat from a Zetatijuana article

Subject Matter: CJNG, Tijuana
Recommendation: No prior subject matter knowledge required

The criminal families of Los Arzate and Los Uriate have united in a bid to contain the expansion of the CJNG in the East zone of Tijuana, which has resulted in a war, 443 people have been asassinated in four months. Operating with impunity, the cartels have initiated a campaign of intimidation against Police Chiefs, which they have done publicly with narco mantas.  The protagonists in this criminal struggle have no arrest warrants against them, even on the part of the PGJE of Baja California.


Reporter: Zeta Investigations
There had been an accord between the Cartels of Sinaloa, CJNG, and Arellano Felix. In Tijauana they had divided it up into various zones, but the CJNG have unilaterally changed and have started to move their marijuana and crystal meth through every zone in the City; recently the crews from he Sinaloa Cartel, the brothers Arzate Garcia "El Aquiles" and "La Rana", and Los Uriate have been operating separately confronting each other, they have temporarily combined to recoup the criminal activities, in the delegations of Los Pinos, La Presa, in East Tijuana and Sanchez Taboada. These are the thoughts of a member of the State Counsel for Public Security in order to explain the wave of executions that has shook the City, and the co locations of the Narco manta threats left on bodies.

Not being a major aside, in territorial terms, the jewel in the criminal crown in the delegation of Sanchez Taboada, where for the last three years, the CJNG established its illicit centre of criminal operations.




The investigator has arrived at this conclusion from the recent declarations of detained criminals. The same reports indicate that those of the Cartel Arellano Felix are not going to enter a war between Cartels, because they have diminished operations,  that has been established in the streets by the criminals in the service of "El Karateka" Carlos Garmino Gonzalez who was detained in February of 2016.

Up until now the confrontations have not included Mexicali nor San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora, because these cities are the ports of entry for the drugs of the CJNG. There even though they have a large presence, it only functions as a reception centre for the drugs that are transported to the Costal zone, detailed the investigator.

According to the captured drug dealers, the heads of the Sinaloa criminals consider that Jalisco "has a lot of Government" that is to say complicit authorities in the PGR, and in various states, as well as in the Police and the three levels of Government, which is the reason why in the mafia narco mantas the threats are against members of the Police corporations.


Marco Sotomayor, Secretary of Public Security in Tijuana, received a telephone call from someone who identified himself as "Rene Arzate", who threatened his life and those close to him. In a similar manner, Jose Maria Gonzalez, Assistant Attorney General of the PGJE, was also contacted by a member of the CJNG and threatened.

Security Chiefs, Ministerial Police and the Sub-Secretary General in Tijuana have received telephone threats from narco trafficking groups. This is in spite of the deficient work that the authorities of the Coordination group are carrying out in matters of security, which has generated concern and complaints from business organizations, civil associations, and private citizens.

The only response that has been made by Governor Fransisco de Lamadrid is that he is also concerned about the growing violence; he regrets of not being able to speak about how to combat the strategy of the narco's as stated on March 27:

".... last month I was in Mexico City three times; twice to visit Sedena to deal with the issue and with the Attorney General of the Republic to deal with these things... it is frustrating for myself because I understand the concern of the people, however, this is a very important factor in fighting back".

In four months in Tijuana there have been 443 murders

According to the statistics of the Executive Secretary, in the first three years of the administration of Vega de Lamadrid, homicides have incremented more than 40 percent and the second part of his administration has fared no better.

Crime has intensified with the change in municipal authorities, to the extent in Tijuana, where more than 80 percent of the executions occur, in the first four months the new city councils have surpassed 100 homicides per month, when in 2016 the highest monthly total was September with 88 murders.


In December of 2016, the first month of the Governorship of Juan Manuel Gastelum, there were 112 executions recorded; 103 violent deaths in January, another 110 corpses in February, and 118 near the end of March. A total of 443 murders and still eight months to complete his first year of municipal government.

In 2017 and until the 28th of March, 332 have been killed, 300 men and 26 women and in seven cases of incinerated bodies the sex could not be determined. In addition, 220 have been shot, 33 strangled, 36 stabbed to death, 27 beaten to death, and 10 classified as other.

The delegations with the most murders are La Presa with 47, La Presa Rural with 37, another 37 in Los Pinos and 36 in Sanchez Taboada.

All of these cases show impunity, a circumstance that has been used by drug traffickers of different cartels, to demonstrate their criminal power and threaten officials and police.

Crime reports

On Sunday, March the 26th, a manta was hung on the East Zone bridge, an area that according to the State Security Council, is being heavily contested as the Sinaloa Cartel try and recover it from the CJNG. In the manta the threat was plain.

"Now they are going to know what it is to love God in Agena land, because that is Agena land for you dirty dolls of Jalisco, your fucking chief "El JP" takes it in his lizard ass and makes you call Cabo 8 here, you feel like assholes here, as well as Cabo 96 or Carlos Hinojosa Maldita four eyes, and your Bebe Cabo 39, bad traitor who killed his commander and turned, and you will also put your friend or your fucking cousin asshole, for 3000 pesos, but here they area going to suck together the fucking rat traitors, and pendejos of Meher, like the worst will end up in suitcases, and all your rats. ATTE your Sargento, you know who, fucking shit heads."


According to official reports, Victor Hugo Mejia "El Griego", a sicario of the Sinaloa Cartel, is who in this last year has started to call members of the CAF and ex members of the Sinaloa Cartel who currently work for CJNG as "dolls" in the Coastal Zone of Baja California.


The threats, conclude the investigators, is against Jesus Rafael Yocupicio "El Cabezon", Juan Jose Perez Vargas "El JP" of whom they assure are not in the city. Edgar Herrera Pardo "Cabo 8", "El Caiman" or "El Zame". They also make reference to "Cabo 96, Carlos Hinojosa and a "Bebe Cabo 39" who have not been identified by intelligence analysts.

"El Meher", according to unofficial data is Carlos Enriquez Castaneda, 26 years of age, assassinated by gunfire on 22nd March at Calle Sinaloa, opposite no.9 of the Los Pinos delegation; the bullet ridden corpse was found inside a vehicle of recent model with United States plates.

In respect of the authorities, they reported that Reynaldo Solano Cortez, detained on 30th of June of 2016, is part of the CJNG, and is identified as "El Cabo"; informed that his photos, name and nickname were known, he had decided to change his nickname, as did all the members of the CJNG that operate in San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora, Mexicali and Tijuana, who now have a key assignation that started with Cabo 1, and so on.

Continuing Mafia communications

After the Manta of Sunday 26th of March, the communications from the mafia continued, the following day, Monday the 27th, on the Lomas Verdes bridge, an unidentified man was hung with a manta left tied around his neck, he had been tortured, the manta was attributed to the CJNG, the manta read;

Here no more are the CTNG, dont suck fuckers.



The day of threats continued on the Tuesday the 28th of March, although there were more executions, the manta messages were in smaller scale on placards; that day the Forensic Medical Service carried off six corpses, and only on two bodies were there mantas.

"This is going to happen to all those Cabos of Piolina in skirts, Atte: Joce Luis Mora Samora, this was placed on a dead body in Sanchez Taboada, and "this will happen to those who work with Las Chompas and Los Aquiles, Atte : CTNG, this was left on the body of a man shot while cycling in the El Florido subdivision.

The authorities do not consider these 6 homicides as a noticeable increase due to a new fight between criminal groups, because the output of those killed is constant, and on Thursday, March 23rd, before the mantas there were the same amount of homicides.

On Wednesday, March 29th, the statistics only recorded a single murder in the La Presa delegation, , the authorities did remove a manta, this time in a crowded area opposite the Macroplaza:

"We of the CTNG are not strangers and we fight for Tijuana to bring tranquility to our countrymen of Tijuana. You are dirty and pay you people that's why they switch. You have left the job of Patron to your people and they laugh behind your back because you say you are the Plaza boss of Tijuana but you are not. The people of Tijuana are not stupid, and you know this motherfucker is a cabron, and a dirty cabron does not sit well with the people. With metal and iron we give it to you in the ass, and your words are drowned out, hahaha Here the CTNG is stronger than ever Atte: your worst nightmares".

In this message, Jalisco claim to be victorious in the criminal contest against Victor Hugo Mejia "El Griego", who in his mantas usually signs them as "Iron and Metal".

They claim criminal control of the plaza but have no arrest warrants

To analyze the current conditions, this criminal struggle can only escalate, Cartels can continue to spread fear, terrorizing citizens, hanging mantas, killing people in the streets, leaving tortured or incinerated bodies on the street, and as mentioned none of those people mentioned have an arrest warrant against them or one requested by the PGJE.


Except for Alfonso Arzate, "Aquiles", the Sinaloa criminal jefe who has an old arrest warrant for homicide, the rest, despite being identified, and have been mentioned in previous investigations, enjoy impunity. On the side of Sinaloa, the plaza jefe, Victoria Higo Mejia "El Griego" and "El Uriate", also have no problems, in fact when they have been captured they are set free.

The same situation applies to the identified member of CJNG, who now claim to be CTNG, there are no arrest warrants against Manual Morales "El Gallero", or an arrest warrant against his sicarios, Jesus Rafael Yocupicio "El Cabezon", Juan Jose Perez Vargas "El JP", Edgar Alejandro Herraro Pardo "El Caiman" or "El Zame", or Kevin Gizado, Jonathan Lopez, Erasmo Valadez, Daniel Esparza, or the recently mentioned Carlos Hinojosa and Bebe Cabo 39.

  3. Tijuana has always been a hotbed for violence. But this new wave of violence exceeds that of the AFO. A farmer that lives just off the 201 in Cerro Veladero supposedly houses El Mayo's top enforcers and jefe's. My niece worked there recently. Taking care of hombres that dressed like soldados. She told my sister "estos chicos me dieron el arrastramiento". My neice is tough. Both her padre & marido were killed in the Juarez violence a few years ago. She told my sister, and her exact words were, "Algo está a punto de caer en Tijuana. No sé qué, pero nunca he visto a soldados como éstos antes."

    1. It's a lucrative business.
      Why can't the governments legalize the game already? Think of the revenue it will generate for both countries.
      Privatization of such and management can bring peace to Mexico.

      Delete
    2. With all due respect Unknown, there's a bigger picture than the one you paint. If the government would legalize everything they will not want to share the profits. You think the cartels and the old money families will just take that laying down? Never. Privatization will never bring peace to Mexico because instead of having CDS and CJNG you will have the PRI, and the PAN running things. And for all we know they already are, that's the scary part.

    3. I can see your logic 7.20 pm.
      And yes it's a known fact that government officials are deeply embedded with drug trafficking. The corruption within for fortunes is a common goal for most . Neglecting its constituents from good governance.
      You make a good point!

      Delete
    4. The government should just legalize narcotics and makes money off the taxes. Who cares if it is illegal in the US? It can stay illegal there, but if it is legal in Mexico, this could reduce the violence and the government would still make money. The taxes could take Mexico out of poverty. After all, the drug traffickers invest their money in the US, not in Mexico. Just look at Miami. It's just a thought. I'm not trying to lay the plan, just the idea. Let's get some dialogue started.

      Delete
    5. @ 9:56 am
      Nothing would be solved if narcotics only became legal in Mexico, the real money is in the U.S.

      Let's say you are a politico and I am a old Money extremely well connectedp traficante, not even a capo. I have 4 brothers, 6 cousins, 17 nephews, and 3 sons. Let's say half are in the maña with me, that's 16 well connected traficantes making bank. And that's not even including friends.

      You are a politico wanting to make things right so you decide to put your foot in our business and take our money. You will get your foot chopped off by 16 well connected traficantes.

      Or you are a narcopolitico, like Duarte. I bet 1/4 of politicos in Mexico are in with Narcos, that's why Mexico is how it is.

      The people need to fight back, either by arming themselves with knowledge or guns and righteousness. We gotta pray for Mexico. Saludos from Los Angeles, El Nemesis-

    6. Money invested on the US or just deposited in US BANKS gets claimed by the US government, except if you are very powerful, a billionaire or his partner.
      As for "taxes" the biggest private or privatized mexican corporations are famous.for not paying taxes, what makes you think legalized drug trafficking will be paying taxes, everything involving mexican government loses money too, by the time.drug trafficking for profit or for taxes is made legal, mexican businessmen will have already cornered the market, it will be more expensive too, and leave las mugrosas to their own devices all over again. No welfare or retraining.

  4. Pretty much TJ is free for all until you get smoked. Btw this cartel war in TJ is merely for control of the narcomenudeo NOBODY will ever control these border cities like before.

    So much violence going on and yet no arrest warrants were ever issued for some known criminals. Although some were arrested and released. How convenient!
    This plagued city of corruption and violence has led to an unprecedented number of killings.
    Yet the more I read and gather information, I can truly understand the political elements behind all of such. Being that of corruption within government and municipal officials.
    What Mexico really needs is employment with decent wages. Maybe then some peace can arise from this hell storm.

I get a good laugh on ppls throwing their two cents. No CAF Cheerleader here to anyone who takes offense. just a spectator watching these here onfold from the sidelined. local cells whom for the most part got rolled out/kicked out from the AFO and who now have a war flag to claim (jalisco/sinaloa) decided to turn on each other just as their cell leaders once did on the AFO. lol yeah somebody said it up there in the earlier comments the AFO dont have shit to do with this train wreck. just a bunch of teomuletas remnants who couldn't get there shit together after their bosses got put away and decided to fight amongst each other. the smart half aligned itself with the AFO.

  13. The section titeled "Crime reports" contains the translation of a manta, referencing "loving God in Ajena land." This is a miss translation, the correct translation should be "to love God in a foreign land," meaning to practice one's religion in a country where another religion is practiced.

    1. Amar a dios en tierra ajena just means you get to love God when you come to fack around in a land that belongs to others, like when los zetas catch you in their turf and you start praying to God for help while the zetas prepare the drum for carniasada.
