El Marro and El Señor de la Silla, the huachicoleros behind the Guanajuato violence

Chivis Martinez for Borderland Beat from Silla Rota


In the past two years, violence in Guanajuato  has exponentially increased by 160%.  In January of 2016, 60 murders were registered.  In the month of  February, 2018 there were 156.  [ population of Guanajuato is 6M]. 

The reason for the violence? The so called “Triangle of Guanajuato” or “Triangle of Bermuda”, a corridor that goes from León to Los Apaseos and passes through Salamanca, Irapuato and Celaya.

In this corridor passes pipelines of Petroleos Mexicanos (PEMEX), the main source of the “huachicoleros”, or gas thieves.

Data reveals that Guanajuato is the state with the largest clandestine fuel intakes.   
In the first 11 months of 2017 it was recorded that there are 1,696 fuel retrieval points in the state. This makes it a most valuable commodity for cartels to capitalize on.

The triangle is disputed by two organized crime groups: Cartel Santa Rosa de Lima and Cartel Jalisco New Generation.  (CJNG)


The Cartel Santa Rosa de Lima, is a reference of the town of the same name, located in the municipality of Guanajuato.  It was there the the criminal organization was founded. It has since expanded to parts of the neighboring states of Queretaro and Michoacan.

This relatively new criminal organization was unveiled last October, when a video surfaced  with  several armed men appearing with their faces concealed.   

In the video a subject is shown in front of the group threatening CJNG, it is Jose Antonio Yepez Ortiz also know as “El Marro”.  El Marro’s name appeared in threatening cartulinas,  left with the dismembered body and signed by CJNG over the weekend.  The body was the son  of the police commander of Irapuato.

What is known about El Marro’s criminal history, is that he was arrested 10 years ago in 2008, accused of robbery and organized crime.  Unfortunately, he disappeared after paying bail.

Fuel theft is the mainstay of Cartel Santa Rosa de Lima, they also engage In drug trafficking and vehicle theft.

The threat that El Marro issues in the video, is due to the advancement of CJNG, led by Francisco Cerda Guillén, alías "El Señor de la Silla".

CJNG is one of the main cartels involved in fuel theft.  Both in Guanajuato and Veracruz, are the main entities where this crime is carried out. “El Marro” and "El Señor de la Silla" have maintained a vicious dispute over the territory of the “triangle”, a war that has caused immense bloodshed in the streets of Guanajuato.   

In the last year a total of 84 people were murdered, while in the first two months of 2018 there were 328 cases of intentional homicide.

The presence of these cartels is also reflected in the number of complaints of drug trafficking.  A crime that almost doubled in Guanajuato, from 3684 in 2016 to 6567 in 2017. 

And in 2018, there were in the first two months 1436 cases.

With no end in sight.

    2. Yes that is him they also mentioned El Cachas the guy that got caught around the same time Mencho's wife got caught. He was in charge of Morelia for a few years rumors have it that they discovered or more like a person they thought was dead came to see him and so he left. That was around the same time they killed el burrito de punta de agua. Who knows as those were just rumors.

    1. Michoacanos have been there and even have people from guanajuato working for them. CT and la familia michoacana and now cjng. All cartels are in that state tonto. Zetas, golfos and Beltranes too. Marro is small time and will get killed or run from there soon

      Delete
  6. El marro was identified as a member of el cholo's group. El cholo who was menchos right hand then killed el colombiano a main financial operator of the cjng and mencho went to war with him.

    Replies
    1. He’s not a member of cholos group. They’re probably working together to take out cjng but he’s not under cholo. He’s running his own cartel

      Delete
    2. This is a different marro one from Guanajuato and the other one from jalisco

      Delete
    3. He has no choice but to ho with cholo, either way marro is stuck in the middle of it and would be a bigger target if he went with mencho because cholo would be encouraged for bring a chapulin. Either way marro is a goner

      Delete
    4. This guy and el marro are not working together.. theres another marro thats workig with el cholo or was until he got shot

      Delete
    5. 5:09 - Marro definitely is a bigger target, you see how plump that dude is?

    2. no, Marro and his thoeves are stealing fuel, CJNG announced theyre going after those that steal fuel because like every cartel they have this code where stealing is a no no (but its bs because they all steal)

    3. Your favorite Sinaloa cartel steals gas too. Sinaloa is one of the areas where more gas gets stolen

      Delete
    4. do you realize how much money can be made and how easily its sold to foreign buyers,im not talking about paisas selling 5 gallons on the side of the road

    5. Estado de Puebla was shown on a map recently on BB, it had more illegal fuel outlets than any other state, about double than 2nd place.
      After Mario Marin, La Pantera Rosa alias governor Rafael Moreno Valle went bat shit crazy stealing and getting the state in debt for his presidential run that went nowhere, still nobody voted for his ass, but his wife "won" the governorship with chanchullos, the election proved to be a fraud, poll annulled and given to former PRD and federal senator Barbosa, now with AMLO and MORENA PARTY who may continue the fuel theft or not...

    the mexican government hit these scumbags for taking their petroleum.

  12. Can’t the government patrol the pipelines? Don’t they have helicopters and an army to do so? Like AMLO said, they don’t give a crap.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I watched the video and it is ridiculous that more than 1000 people got arrested for stealing fuel and the judges set them two days after their arrest. AMLO has said the judges are a big failure in the process. YO ESTOY CON AMLO. Juntos haremos historia.

    ReplyDelete
  14. if a group steal fuel and their main income is from fuel theft, are they even considered a Cartel? does Santa Rosa even engage in smuggling drugs outside of Mexico? Theyre not Narcos if theyre not trafficking narcotics.

    theyre 1 group with no plazas outside of Guanajuato so technically by definition they are not a cartel, just a band of thieves.
    nowdays every group of criminals wants to call them selves a cartel

    1. 12:32 the obvious impunity comes from above, that is why the problem can't be solved by the government or its melitary or poolesias, it also leaves the problem to private security corporations that will also take over the huachicoleros job once they get "their contract".
      Stealing from PEMEX will go on steroids if AMLO keeps the top burglars on the job with contracts with foreign RATAS that never even get to smell a drop of oil.
      The huachicoleros pipe tankers and plastic totes on stake trucks keep being invisible even to the cops.

      Delete
    2. @8:34, I always wondered how no ones ever sees most of these guys. I understand that they operate at night but have a few police patrols in those areas. Gasoline transportation requires some big containers/vehicles. Then again, Pemex is government owned and most of these so called cartels are really another branch of the government. So they steal from themselves, write it off as a loss and probably get insurance money from the theft. Talk about a win win win situation!
