                   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.
