Armed sicarios in Tonichi, Sonora

A video started circulating on WhatsApp this week. The video shows a dismounted convoy of armed sicarios standing around haphazardly on the purportedly Yecora bridge that overlooks the Yaqui River (Rio Yaqui in Spanish). The bridge is on the Carretera Hermosillo-Yecora near a junction close to the town of Tonichi. Tonichi is a town in the Soyopa Municipality, in the eastern region of the Mexican state of Sonora. 

The video is 29 seconds long and safe for everyone to see. No murder, torture, or violence takes place. My surmise here would be that the person recording the video is facing the river at a slightly northwestern direction. This is based on the flow of the river and a quick look at geographical maps of the area. So, based on what I’m seeing I’m going to say that the town of Tonichi lies nearby in the direction that the trucks are facing. I’m seeing a total of 10 trucks max spanning the length of the bridge. And if we hypothetically do the math and say that each vehicle holds 12 sicarios each. Then that amounts to a company size of over 100 armed men. The numbers could be a bit off, give or take. So, let’s always keep in mind that margin of error. These men are obviously patrolling. Or as the Spanish saying goes: Cuidando el terreno (Protecting the terrain).The name of the corrido that plays throughout the video is called Javier Diaz. I’ve added the YouTube video to the artist El Plebe Guerrero for anyone who’s interested. Not much else is known about the video. At this point it’s unknown which group this could be. Rumors online are saying that this is Gente Nueva. Anyways, this is my assessment of this video.

  7. Those are Gente Nueva Tier 4-6 operators..... very low skill and training, they just kind hang around and drink cervezas and listen to music. Even the ammo they use is just standard .223 FMJ without hollows or muzzle flash suppressors, they are just used to show a presence and sometimes they give out candy and soda.

    3. The corrido is not about a sicario,its about Baltazar Diaz son Javier who is dead. He was a tirador not a hitman. The corrido doesn't even mention nonsense like the rest.

    1. 6:54 Only if they see themselves on some mirrors
      there will be a topon.
      Getting paid will be a problem,
      paying for their weapons, not at all possible,
      The troques will run out of huachicol, then what.
      It is not like these Mophakas will live off the land.

  22. While CJNG, CDN, CDG, Zetas and a few other groups all act as a real drug lord army with uniformity and discipline these tomateros looks like a bunch of hillbillies from the cerros of sinaloa y sonora lol che come tortilla de maiz maricas bajo del cerro se creen de gran huevos y ala ora de las pelotras corren patras pa sus cerros y cuevas como perro con la cola entre las patas... en mexico la mujer sinaloense es conocida por su belleza mientras el sinaloense por marica por andar por meses con sus "compas" en el campo que acaban haciendose el amor estilo sinaloense jajajaja arre plebe!

    1. When you say hillbillies here’s what I’ve seen. From my knowledge some of the best shooters around are hillbillies. Wether they be American or the Mexican version of them. Yes these guys spend ample enough time in the hanging inside the wood line. They live and breathe the outdoors which to me makes them the best for tracking and all things outdoors. City folk can’t hold a candle to the initiated outdoorsman. The only downside to it all is the lack of women around. Which is why the prostis (prostitutes) are trucked in for the guys. Every theater of war is like this. Inside or out. But where the prostis are completely unavailable the man on man love does exist for those who are into that. I’ll try to add a post with video that just came out which proves this. - Sol Prendido

    2. 2:03 why so sour bud???... Sounds like a sinaloense stole ur girl haha...

      Delete
    3. 12:38 Jajaja so when all sinaloas talk shit about z and jaliscos is it cause they also stole their girls? Just remember chapo snitched on all of his comrades

      Delete
    4. 2:03 yea, most people already know the sinaloenses are not as tough or brave as their music claim lol
      I think they calmed down on their exaggerated music though after cjng started taking their plazas I haven't heard anything close to their music 3 or four years ago.. I heard a new corrido of chapitos sicarios los ninis how they are about action and blablabla I doubt anyone in the drug game respect chapitos after they got kidnapped in jalisco and gave part of their daddy Chapo's fortune and some plazas to cjng

  23. Good job sol, idk if 12 men per truck is a correct assessment tho. Perhaps 5-8 men per truck seems reasonable.

    1. That’s why I said surmise. The video doesn’t show everything that I need to see. Their convoy could’ve been a lot longer in both directions. When you find yourself out in that desert you’re able to see these guys coming from miles away because of all that dust they’re kicking up where paved roads cease to exist. They tend to roll deep. - Sol Prendido

    2. Agree 12 is to many, and an easy target, then again when theres a topon cds are known to loose more man so maybe its cause theyare riding 12 in a truck

  27. This are the type of sicarios that get surprised by real sicarios and get killed like the ones ambushed and killed a couple of months back.

    1. No offense but where are they gonna get ambushed from? Legit question because if looks like they have both sides covered. Possibly the mountains? Although I feel like they would get spotted up there.
