"El Tortas" Drug Store in Mexico City

Yaqui for Borderland Beat from: Nacion321
                   This is how "El Tortas'' drug shop operated in CDMX - Just like a regular store

Jorge Flores Concha, alias "El Tortas" , alleged leader of the criminal Anti-Union Fuerza will remain in preventive detention until a Control judge determines the connection of the case, determined the Attorney General of Mexico City. 

This Friday details were given of how a "narco-tienda" of Anti-Union Fuerza operated.

The specialized journalist, Carlos Jiménez, of Imagen TV and Radiofórmula, reported that a narco-tienda operated by "El Tortas" was dismantled ,  along with six other accomplices. 

The shop that looks like a traditional grocery store in its facade, actually sold drugs too. According to the reporter, the authorities confiscated drug packages at this store located in Colonia Morelos, Cuauhtémoc, in the capital of Mexico. 


The six men arrested were placed at the disposal of the local authorities together with the seized packages of marijuana. 

"El Tortas " was arrested on May 28 and is charged with the crimes of murder, kidnapping and extortion, as well as the sale and distribution of narcotics in the municipalities of Cuauhtémoc, Iztapalapa, Venustiano Carranza and Gustavo A. Madero in Mexico City; as well as in several Mexican municipalities, especially Atizapán de Zaragoza.
The new Accusatory Penal System grants that each accused must undergo a process, but everything must be confirmed in his accusation, have sufficient evidence against him, always respecting his human rights and adhering to the process.

The PGJ of Mexico City informed that once such evidence is collected, these persons will be transferred to a prison and at that moment they will be placed at the disposal of a Control judge, who will determine their relationship based on the ministerial arguments.

    1. Unfortunately, something not visible before. The distribution of drugs from tienditas like these bring nothing but criminal activities.
      I see no beneficial contributions from such other than destroying one's communities.

    2. 5:37; yes kind of like “we accept food stamps” or “drive thru tobacco store” means we sell blow, rock, meth, or dope. Yet from Texas to Maine these stores stay in business unlike Mr. Tortas.

    4. ALOT is an understatement. thousands......right out of houses, garages, auto repair shops, your nearest favorite restaurant or taco stand and on and on........I must have 100 photos w "tiendita" scribbled somewhere on a facade; or the people in the hood just KNOW....that is why dealers fight over corners, etc etcetc.

  2. Mexicans are masters of distribution, retail channels, and micro-sales. Any Mexican market will show you how they compete. From 6-year old ambulantes hawking chiclets on street corners to teenagers hustling dime bags on smartphones to retail shops on the corner like the one in the article - Mexico is a shopper's paradise. The sellers know how to negotiate and bargain, too, making deals left right up and down.

    There are stories about the 1960s and early 1970s when Mexican weed growers would sponsor clandestine markets up in remote mountain sites near the dope fields where all the gringo contrabandistas could sample the latest crops and place their wholesale orders.

    This improved quality. Not much of the bricked, seedy weed made it as far as the Midwest US, but lots of nice green sativas from Michoacan and Sinaloa did. In the early 70s all the high-school dealers had $15 lids, $45 quarter pounds, $80 half pounds and $140 pounds.

    Tucson Arizona was for many years a huge dope town where you could score Mexican bales in large quantities and ship or truck or airline it out. A song from the first Blue Oyster Cult Album 1971 called "Last Days of May" tells the story of a dope deal in the desert near Tucson gone bad, supposedly based on a true story from a friend of the band's. Back before dope-sniffing dogs and before you had to show an ID to ship a package USPS or UPS. I never participated on a huge scale, but I was always amazed at the sheer quantities that would pass through.

    Many of these distribution channels and smuggling routes have been set up over a long time and still exist. That's why people bother smuggling weed from Michoacan to Michigan, because there's still people willing to pay a few hun an ounce on the biker-bar parking lot.

    Interesting how people are bringing hash-oil vape pens from California and Colorado to Cabo, Cancun, etc. and selling them for 4x. Taking coals to Newcastle...El Oh El

    2. Thank you, good story !
      don't let anyone tell you that all mota mexicano is crap brick weed. Plenty of sophistication in strains has been adopted and spread; a tidal wave of it.
      Mexican growers are not stupid, as you say they are the masters of alot of things, esp "farming".

    6. I do remember the hey days of the early 70's 100 for a key split it sell for 100 an lbs. Pocket 2 z.and double your investment. At the retail level 4 finger lids for 10-15 bucks double your investment again. Those were the days. No guns no ripoffs life was good. Now a man can't make a dollar without getting killed going felony. Those were the days.

    7. Rafail Caro Qwentero, that who.
      Before you kids learned to walk.
      Even Panama Red gave up, but then he set up the Panama as a tax heaven and money laundering center to compete with "Harvard graduates' with dual degrees in law and business" money laundering tax heavens in The Cayman Islands.

    8. You peepol don't seem to know, but a lot of drug trafficking in Mexico is pushed by forced sales, where smart asses know they will eat their product or sell it, but it must be paid for every day or every week, or it will be their ass.

    1. They even have cops who protect the sellers here in the US.

    2. 4:41 on the US the poolice do not protect criminals, they just wait until the money in the bank is worth the trip, it converts to promotions, bonuses, over time, early retirement, even fuels hopes of multiplying an investment as partners in Hotel/Casino complexes until the pipe dream evaporates after a while...
      But like romantic girls, they live the rest of their lives remembering the high produced by the hopes the pimps sold them through a City Hall that was bought and paid partner in the scam.
      Can't say names, because I will lose my cents on the dollar refund on my investment if I violate the non disclosure agreement...

  4. Tortas is in good shape for his age. On a side note, Andy Ruiz Jr made the Mexicans proud last night.

    4. @6:30 Mexican boxers in general have stout chins. Sugar Shane Moseley also said this. Ruiz looks like a brawler who can eat punishment and keep swinging. Congrats to the first Mexican heavyweight champ.

    5. @JamesBrown, absolutely! Mexican boxers are some of the toughest in history if not the toughest. Are you hip to Jaime Munguia? I think he is gonna be the next Mexican Boxing star. And I wanna see GGG vs Canelo one more time.

    6. The ladies have a chance to vote, who is prettiest,
      de la Hoya or El Canelo,
      Or Ricardo "El Pajarito" Moreno, a Mexican miner from Chalchihuites Zacatecas who never wore fishnets.

    7. Andy Ruiz win, an upset, looks suspicious, specially after the gamblers lost their ass one too many times again...

  6. Side note: 1994 on Netflix
    I’ve struggled understanding the breadth and depth of corruption in Mexico. The series, 1994, brings it to light. I’m a gringo. Live in Idaho. Been to Mexico once. I wept from sorrow and rage.

  7. My best friend just got back from a cruise yesterday. One of his stops was.in Cozumel. He said he was walking down the street about 200 meters from the dock, and passed a small store. He went in to buy a Coke. The man at the register asked him if he liked to party. He asked what kind of party. The man opened his till which had a false bottom in it. In that compartment the guy had Cocaine, Pot, Meth, Heroin and fake Oxy's, Ecstacy, and anything else. He said the guy had perfect English, said he was from LA, and that "this is cartel shit...the real shit"....My dumb buddy asked him what Cartel??? He said the guy pulled up his shirt, and he had a big ZVE tattoo on his abs. He said he could then feel unsafe. He didn't buy anything, but a Coke, and the guy said to come back if he changed his mind. I don't think my buddy truly understands how lucky he was.

    1. Honestly Grande, they don’t mess with the tourists too much. He just wanted to make a sale but he wasn’t gonna kill him. It’s a business and you need the customers to be alive.
