CDG Capo, "El Coss" pleads guilty to drugs and 1999 assault on U.S. Agents

Chivis Martinez for Borderland Beat
On right as he departed for U.S. he agreed to extradition 
Jorge Costilla Sanchez pleaded guilty yesterday to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine and marijuana, plus two counts of assault on a federal officer. The 46-year-old Costilla remains in custody pending sentencing in Brownsville.

When  he was arrested “El Coss” was the premier leader of the Gulf Cartel aka CDG. He was arrested in 2012 in Mexico and extradited to the U.S. in 2015.

The infamous attack on U.S. agents

The assault charges stemmed from a 1999 event in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, in what reads like fiction.  Two U.S. agents, one DEA and the other FBI, Joe DuBois and FBI agent Daniel Fuente assigned to the Monterrey N.L.  Consulate, were driving in a vehicle with diplomatic license plates, in Matamoros for a meeting with and transportation of  an informant.  

They were seen near the home of Osiel.  Osiel Cardenas, El Coss and several CDG members noticed the vehicle and later who was riding inside.   The narcos surrounded the agents’ vehicle, where the narco leaders told the agents they were going to kill them.

Using psychology,  the agents talked the capo out of killing them and to allowing them go,  to avoid the havoc that would surely plagued them if in fact they were to murder two U.S. agents.

At first Osiel said he did not give a damn.  But then began listening, to warnings such as Fuentes reminding Cárdenas how the U.S. launched a 1985 massive manhunt and investigation after the kidnap and murder of  DEA agent Enrique Camarena  in Mexico. And that all of the killers and accomplices were captured in that U.S. operation.

The ploy worked and the agents were released unharmed. Yesterday El Coss plead guilty to his part in the ambush. 

Below press release from the United States attorney’s office

Former Gulf Cartel Leader Convicted of Drug Conspiracy and Assaults on Federal Officers
BROWNSVILLE, Texas - Jorge Costilla-Sanchez has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine and marijuana as well as two counts of assault on a federal officer, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Abe Martinez. 

Costilla-Sanchez, 46, was the head of the Gulf Cartel (CDG) for some of the years following the arrest of Osiel Cardenas in 2003 and before Costilla-Sanchez’s arrest in September 2012. Since the 1990s, the CDG has been the lead transnational narcotics trafficking and money laundering organization in Northern Tamaulipas, Mexico.

During his association with the CDG, Costilla-Sanchez was responsible for making strategic decisions and trying to manage various factions within the CDG. From 1998-2012, Costilla-Sanchez helped provide leadership to the CDG which resulted in the importation of thousands of kilograms of cocaine and marijuana into the United States. CDG narcotics enter the country at the Ports of Entry in Hidalgo and Cameron County, along the Rio Grande River and through lanchas arriving along the National Seashore at Padre Island. Once imported into the U.S., traffickers here would transport the narcotics to various cities throughout the United States. Profits from the sale of narcotics were returned to the CDG in Mexico. Money laundering efforts to promote this scheme included bulk cash currency smuggling to Northern Mexico, the use of funnel accounts to wire money into banking accounts for eventual repatriation to the CDG and the purchase of assets to disguise the illicit nature of these drug proceeds.

Other key parts of the CDG drug trafficking organization were the promotion of public corruption as well as the collection of a “piso” or tax from business owners, illegal alien smugglers and independent narcotics traffickers in Mexico which would allow them to operate. 

During his guilty plea today, Costilla-Sanchez acknowledged his participation in a conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute kilogram amounts of cocaine and marijuana. 

He also admitted his involvement in the assault of two federal officers. In November 1999, Costilla-Sanchez was with Cardenas when two U.S. federal agents were seen near a CDG residence. Cardenas called out on a two-way radio to his security team and ordered them to stop the agents. The CDG had at least four vehicles deployed to force the U.S. agents to stop in broad daylight on a heavily traveled street in Matamoros. Costilla-Sanchez also arrived at the stop and carried a pistol to the encounter. Several CDG members also pointed AK-47s at the agents who felt in fear of losing their lives. Cardenas and another co-defendant - Juan Carlos De La Cruz Reyna – also pleaded guilty to the assault and were both sentenced to prison.

Costilla-Sanchez’s sentencing has been set for Jan. 4, 2018, before U.S. District Judge Hilda G. Tagle. At that time, Costilla-Sanchez faces a minimum of 10 years and up to life in federal prison. He is also subject to a money judgement regarding the proceeds he obtained during his participation in the conspiracy. That amount will be determined at the time of sentencing.

The FBI, Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations, Drug Enforcement Administration, Cameron County Sheriff’s Office and Brownsville Police Department conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jody Young, Toni Trevino and Karen Betancourt are prosecuting the case.

Prosecutors say a former Mexican cartel leader could spend the rest of his life in a U.S. prison after pleading guilty to drug and assault counts in South Texas.

    2. 7:57 those DEA AGENTS "assaulted" by osiel and his people were real lucky that no mexican federales were involved as in the kidnapping 3 day tkrtjre and murder of Kiki Camarena and his pilot Alfredo Zavala Avelar, there was also no cuban-americans like felix rafael rodriguez mendigutia americans like oliver north or Hondurans like juan ramon matta ballesteros ordering the mexican federales to murder their arses, the threats the reagan autos threw until kiki's body was returned did nothing to bring out the truth, that according to DEA agents like Hector Berrellez, Phil Jordan and Cele Castillo, the CIA ordered the murder of Kiki Camarena FOR DOING HIS JOB, and the CIA puppet mexican federales obeyed in cahoots with the capos de guadalajara, (sinaloenses), optics say the reagan Government covered up for the misdeeds of their sicarios, there were bilion's and billions of dollars involved

    5. 3:10 conspiracy theories do not get US presidential pardons, criminals do, latest criminal pardoned by a US "prezident" was convicted Felon sheriff Joe El Apache" Arpaio, if he wasn't a criminal he would not have needed a pardon.
      --on the US too many times you only see your case go to court after "arrangements" have been made in advance with the prostiturers, you plead guilty and they promise to go easy on your sentence, I mean, the same old bullshit, "plead" out of respect for the authorities even if you are not guilty in exchange for reduced charges and sentence.

    8. Felix Ismael Rodriguez Mendigutia was also accused of interrogating and torturing Kiki Camarena, don Neto was listening to the recordings until he got caught by the mexican police that needed to look good to the US government accusing, and the secret US government that ran the whole shebangs chose to let the guadalajara cartel down the drain, after all there was the Atlacomulco Cartel, the Hank Gonzalez, the salinas de gortari, the señor de los cielos, the arellanuses and juan garcia abrego and el mayo waiting on the sides...

    9. Guillermo Gonzalez Calderoni a childhood friend of juan garcia abrego, captured of Don Neto, helped DEA investigate the Camarena murder, after extorting millions of dollars from the cartel de guadalajara, helped kill pablo acosta el tigere de Ojinaga for amado carrillo fuentes, the DEA and the FBI HELPED him as a jefe de la policia judicial fedral, he also betrayed carlos salinas de gortari, all of which earned him an early death in tejas.

  2. You don't mess with CIA and DEA, they are the legal cartels backed by the government. You kill one of them they will find you, those agents are right. I tead a story about a guy from the states that was stealing shipments in Mexico and acting like he was working for the DEA but wasn't. He got caught eventually but after many stollen cash and shipments. Mexicans f3ar the DEA after camarena

    1. 8:14 THE DEA IS LEGALLY AUTHORIZED TO IMPORT DRUGS INTO THE US.
      all other agencies and cartels that do it ARE CRIMINALS, including the CIA, in whose name Kiki Camarena got abducted, tortured for 3 days and murdered, for directing the confiscation of their millions of dollars from the bank,
      the US government went to extraordinary lengths to cover it all up, including the DEA, CIA, NSA SENATE AND CONGRESS OF THE USA.
      Senator Gary Hart had the goods when he ran for president of the US, Senator John Kerry too, they may still have reports on the internet, google them, no conspiracy theories there...

    1. Nobody is a wachicolero in Puebla without the governor's say so,
      Mario Marin "el Gober Precioso" has his son "studying in Sweden" and has homes and apartments and exotic cars there, even had a Swedish girlfriend, while he had to make do with the minor aged girls his buddy Jean succar kuri and other mexican arab lebanese egyptian syrian mafia sent him, Rafael Moreno valle "la Pantera Rosa" also made his centavos from huachicoleros, because he was epn picahielo, javier Lozano of el PAN has his share, because he is a mapache that "knows how to get along".
      These politicians and all of the rest are supported by the US with intelligence, money, training, soldier of fortune mercenaries, and weapons, to stay the course, because they profit from the mayhem they have created in mexico.

  19. The DEA, FBI, CIA and NSA really have no business inside of Mexico working from bases on Mexican land as they are all just as criminal as the illegal cartels. Those agents should have been shot dead and their bodies dumped where it would have taken years to find them. Either way the men who captured and released them were going to get caught and get long prison sentences in the USA so it would have been just as well to have killed those agents and sent a real message.
