The Benjamines of the Cartel Arellano Felix

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

Subject Matter: Los Benjamines, Los Pilotos
Recommendation: No prior subject matter knowledge required

The Criminal Investigation Agency of the PGR is investigating Los Benjamines, one of which is 26 years old, one of 19 years and one of indeterminate age, sons of the oldest and youngest of the Arellano Felix brothers. Among them, the Federal Investigators seek to identify "El Piloto", who has been designated as the actual head of a cell of the Cartel Arellano Felix that operates transiting drugs through Baja California. This month this cell has been linked also to kidnapping and extortion, the CAF have returned to kidnapping and "cobro de piso".


Reporter: Zeta Investigations
It is said that there are three new Arellanos visible. With the detention of Fernando Sanchez Arellano in 2014, the criminal dynasty of the cartel had been cut, until now.


Investigators of the PGR have shared information, including with United States authorities, about the identification of three sons of the Arellano Felix brothers, who are being investigated for their participation in the cartel.

According to the names proportioned by the Mexican investigators, they are Fabian Arellano Corona, Benjamin Francisco Serrano and Javier Benjamin Briseno Arellano. According to Federal information, they are the sons of Bejamin Arellano Felix and Francisco Arellano Felix, both currently detained, the first in 2002 and the second in 2006, both imprisoned in the United States.

In coordination with officials of the American Union, the Federal investigators have arrived at the determination that the sons of the Arellano Felix, were born in that nation and maintain residence there in a legal manner.


Currently there are no existing arrest warrants for the descendants, they and their families, mothers, uncles and brothers, appear in criminal organigrams of the group for bi-national coordination of the army, the navy, the pgr and the Federal police, as well as the DEA among others.

Unlike that which happened to the family of Joaquin El Chapo Guzman Loera, and exhibited by the government of the United States, with children apprehended in Mexico or on or over the border, the Arellano Felix clan have remained in the shadows, until the report surfaced a few months ago and was shared by the Mexican and United States agencies.

In Baja California, State investigators had located Fabian and thought his nickname was "El Piloto", but now they are investigating the three mentioned family members to determine the level of participation for each of them, and the hierarchy in the families criminal organization, because "El Piloto", as they have assumed for the last few years, is named as the moral and financial leader of the Cartel Arellano Felix.

Mafia cell leaders, it was reported unofficially to the coordination group through infiltrators; they held a meeting at the end of January of 2018 and agreed to "de-heat the plaza", which meant no more damage to people outside of the drug trade. But they did not comply.

Despite the absence of official complaints, inside the security council they recognize a rebound in the "extortion and kidnapping" in Tijuana. The deprivation of liberty and the "cobro de piso" committed against merchants was the easy way that some CAF cells used between 2006 - 2010 to capitalize or recapitalize, when their finances were affected by internal conflicts, homicides, detentions and seizures. Recent information still under investigation indicates that they have returned to these practises.


One of the local investigators referred to Zeta: " It seems that they found the list of objectives of "El Teo" - Eduardo Garcia Simental, detained in January of 2010, or the list of the CAF, and they are exploiting it, with lists of those kidnapped, or those who had agreed to pay for protection, receiving calls.

"In some cases they are kidnapping former Laundrette owners, people who previously operated with the CAF, but right now they are with their established businesses", said another researcher, "the issue is that the victims are not reporting the crimes, and are paying immediately, and indeed they said they know of cases where owners of small businesses have paid up to 1.5 million pesos to be released from being kidnapped.

Another detailed that returns Tijuana to its former terror days, is the presence of a group of men dressed in dress pants and shirts with the logos of the Attorney Generals Office of the States (PGJE). They arrive aboard a white Dodge Ram truck with flashing lights, they enter premises, and rob, extort and kill.

The most recent case was that of Gerardo Gutierrez Pereida, an employee of the municipality of Tijuana, kidnapped on the night of March 3rd at his home in Las Playas delegation. Witnesses said that ministerial agents took him away under arrest, and he went quietly, family members were told to go for him at La Zona Rio.

However his dismembered body was found hours later, on the morning of the 4th of March in the Sanchez Taboada delegation, the body was narco manta with the following written on it. " This will happen to all the ministerial fucking ball of rats".

Inside the coordination group they raised an alert to the evident return of the organized crime cells to kidnapping, because of the crime committed against a merchant, a member of a family that owns a chain of restaurants - greengrocers, who was kidnapped on January the 23rd and rescued on the 28th.

While he was with the kidnappers, the criminals let him speak with the boss of the cell by phone, who identified himself as "El Padrino", the first inquiries reveal that this subject is part of the CAF, and that his alias known so far had be "El Kado".

According to an organization chart held by the coordination group, there are two men with that nickname, and both identify with the same name, but they have different ages. Hector Manuel Gil Garcia, the older of the two is identified as a relative of the brothers Garcia Simental - and identified as CAF in 2006 -2010, loyal to the cartel and serving Luis Escudero, Isaac Ripa and Roberto Parnas whose name first came to light in 2008. In 2008 Gil Garcia was between 18 and 20 years old, and he became a direct operator for Fernando Sanchez Arellano " El Ingeniero", detained in June of 2014.

Eight years after, on the 10th of August 2016, the State Preventative Police announced the capture of a member of the CAF: Hector Manuel Gil Garcia, 19 years old and presented him as "El Kadito", arrested carrying a 9mm pistol and four thousand dollars.

Junior Arellanos

"El Piloto", as an alias was known to be a leader of the CAF since 2014, months after the capture of the nephew of the Arellanos, Fernando Sanchez Arellano "El Ingeniero". Almost four years later, authorities have still not been able to put a name or face to the alias.

Since the start they have thought that El Piloto is one of the other nephews, and have previously applied the same nickname to various Lieutenants of the CAF, as was the case with Jose Luis Esucdero Escandon.

To follow up on this lack of knowledge, in its recent crime work in Baja California, the Criminal Investigation Agency of the PGR established an organization chart of the Arellano family heirs, locating in detail all the children, men and women, but only of Ramon, Benjamin and Francisco Javier Arellano Felix.

Of Ramon, Paulina 29 years old, of Benjamin, Benjamin Francisco, Fabian, Alicia and Ruth, 28 and 31 years old; Francisco Javier, Javier Benjamin, Cinthia and Lizbeth, 24 and 23 years old.

In some cases, the sons of the Arellano Feliz brothers have managed to change their surnames, particularly the Arellanos, staying with either the mothers surname or a different name altogether.

In the case of the girls, the authorities of the United States and Mexico consider them outside the clans criminal activities. Virtually all Arellano descendants identified by the bi-national criminal investigation group were born in the United States, and therefore, legal residents of that country.

According to the organization chart of the AIC, the identity of "El Piloto" is one of three possibilities:

* Benjamin Francisco, the 26 year old son of Benjamin Arellano.
*Javier Benjamin, the offspring of "Tigrillo", barely 19 years old.
*Fabian Arellano Corona, son of Benjamin Arellano.

Los Pilotos

Below the family, Federal investigators are looking at a series of characters that are being investigated to analyze the possibility of establishing solid case files to charge them, because as was claimed to the former Secretary of the Interior, Miguel Angel Osorio Chong, none have arrest warrants against them.

These are the lead characters:

JOSÉ MESIEN. They place him as operator and brother-in-law of "El Ingeniero".
CRESCENCIO MURILLO BELTRÁN. "El Chencho" is one of the "elders" who made rounds with the Arellano brothers, cousin of Manuel Arturo Villarreal Heredia "El Nalgón" (arrested in 2006, prisoner in the United States) and Armando Villarreal Heredia (arrested in 2011, prisoner in the United States), a member of the Sinaloa Cartel in the wing of Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada in the 1980s, who he betrayed and joined the CAF in the 90s, where he has maintained great profits with the transfer of drugs to the United States ; one of the main promoters of the CAF alliance with Rubén Oseguera Cervantes "El Mencho" and his Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG).

    7. 3:19 that why so many arellanos now are cold or chilling in the tank, and it is not getting any warmer no matter how much lumber they get in the oven,
      but cardinal Posadas Ocampo was not murdered by the arellanos or El chapo, it was Carlos Salinas de gortari, his procurador de justicia Dr. jorge carpizo mcgregor and policia federal commander rodolfo león aragón el Chino león,
      they say El Mon and his gang but arrested El benja, for killing posadas while trying to kill El chapo, also arrested El chapo (and put him in prison for 5 years until he escaped) for being attacked by the arellanuses...
      Pinchi justicia mexicana puras pinchins mamadas.
      Now they are inventing a new devil to blame the chingaderas happening on the BC like "el piloto" and his dangerous gang.
      Wuuuh

  7. Fake News, there’s no CAF anymore! These guys are just menudistas that report to Mencho people out in Tijuana. The arrellanos are doing way better in high society nowadays, CDS has a very big presence here in Tijuana still and are fighting away other groups that bring the extortions n kidnappings as their methods. Tijuana was peaceful up until el chapo was caught the first time in mazatlan. Say what you want but that man held the peace in Mexico.

    4. Chapo took control of The Juárez plaza. The Carrillo’s were still operating but not through El Paso. Mayo took Tijuana. Once that happened the peace was restored and kept in ordered for a while. You didn’t have all this violence all over Mexico. Cabo San Lucas, La Paz, Cancun were the safest places in Mexico. Guerrero, Oaxaca ,Jalisco ,Sonora and Zacatecas never had the violence They have now. Michoacan has always been crazy but was kept under control while chapo was on top of thing. Not like now were its a war zone in every Pueblo. Facts!

      Delete
    5. Chapo did not take control of the Juarez plaza. Murders in the city dropped because the federal police left the city as well as the Army. Murders are back up again as of now but innocent casualties are down to a minimum even with Juarez cartel precense.

    10. Hahaha. Haci como Sinaloa le pidio ayuda a los Federales, y luego a el ejercito de Mexico y hasta la DEA de E.U. para poder entrar a Juarez ahora lloran porke CJNG tal ves les este ayudando a los de Juarez. Pinche niñas!!!
      CJNG no tiene soldados en Chihuahua. Si les ayuda es con droga y alomejor armas y estrategia. Aparte de gente ignorante y o chismosa que cuentan historias falsas no se a sabido que deberas esten peleando gente de Jalisco en Chihuahua en ningun periodico. Quiere decir que la Linea solos acaban con los de Sinaloa.

      Delete
    11. 12:48 acaso tu vives en Juarez?
      Pinches Aztecas solos no dejaron que Sinaloa conquistara Juarez por completo. Si no me creen lean esto en otros sitios como Insight Crime o otras paginas web que describe como estos nunca dejaron de existir y despues volvieron a ayudar a La Linea a introducirce en Juarez y poco a poco ganar mas de la mitad de la ciudad. Ahora Juarez controla tal ves mas de 2 terceras partes de toda la ciudad y el estado.

  14. El cartel mafioso mas misterioso de America Latina. Es un poco complicado cortale la raiz a una empresa enraizada en la comunidad fronteza desde los 80. El dinero AF hasta ahora sigue teniendo palanca politica y empresarial en la region. Hay vieja guardia que no se expuso con el gobierno americano. Todos los carteles mexicanos ni a los talones les llegan a las estrategicas y logisticas del Cartel de Tijuana en su tiempo. Por hay dicen que el Min ya mero sale.

  17. Who keeps this “Piloto” crap going? There is no Piloto. The offspring of the brothers are in the US hiding because their fathers ratted. The rest of the information here is good, but it applied to when Fernandito was in Tijuana. He’s done now and turned in by his own guy. The old CAF loyalists are now with Sinaloa and Guadalajara.
