In diverse points of the zone known as Occidente, narcomantas appeared this morning pointing to a new alliance of the criminal cells of Los Antrax and Neuva Generacion.

According to Judicial Authorities, the narcomantas have appeared in diverse points of the towns of Jacona and Zamora, where a dozen of them were located on bridges and other public places, such as the Monument a la Fresa, located next to the motorway from Jacona to Jiquilpan.

Other mantas appeared in the community of Santiago Tangamandapio, at the same time as the ones in Zamora were being hung on the health centre,  a kiosk in the community square of La Rinconada and some pedestrian bridges.

One of the narco mantas was directed at Romualdo Albiter Rebollar, director of Public Security of Zamora.

The mantas were removed by police authorities after an alert that mobilized security forces from both Federal and State municipal forces.

One of the criminal groups was founded and commanded by El Chino Antrax until he was arrested in Holland on December the 30th of 2013. After the capture of Chino Antrax, Luis Eduardo Zambada, El Venado, become one of the leaders of this cell.
