CJNG threatens CDS in Cancun: This Plaza Already has an Owner

The new threat of "El Mencho" to the Sinaloa Cartel in Cancun: "This plaza already has an owner"

For a couple of years, a new war has been waged in the Mexican jewel of tourist towns between drug cartels. This morning the region woke up sown with narcomantas that threatened “El Zuri”.

The jewel of the tourist crown in Mexico is experiencing a strong security crisis. The emergence of narco mantas in different parts of Quintana Roo have set off fire alarms in the Mexican Caribbean.

This week, at a time when violence seems to be unstoppable within the entity, with 1,020 homicides in the first 9 months of 2019. CJNG, ie , Jalisco New Generation Cartel has waged a battle to control drug sales, according to the forewarning messages written on the mantas. "We are going to kill you Zurizaday Villaseñor. We are fucking fed up with you coming into our territory. We will also be killing off your fucking people. Sincerely, CJNG"; said the narcomanta.

This threatening message was located in Playa del Carmen on a chain link fence next to a playground. It was confiscated by the Municipal Police and taken to the Attorney General's Office.

According to reports, another narco manta was located in Tulum, Quintana Roo at the Felipe Carillo Puerto exit. This manta also had the same warning: “This plaza has an owner, go fuck your mother somewhere else Zurizaday Villaseñor. Because we are going to kill you and your people. You fucking dogs. Sincerely, Cartel Jalisco".

Both narcomantas contained a threatening message for Zurizaday V.M. aka, "El Zuri", supposed leader of the Sinaloa Cartel in southern Quintana Roo. "El Zuri" is linked to the tranfficking of drugs in the country through small planes, which landed in the border area of the entity, taking advantage of the lack of protection at the borders to continue operating.

In 2014, a judge from Belize granted his freedom after being detained and imprisoned by the Central American authorities for almost two years on charges of illegal possession of firearms, ammunition and drugs.

The beaches of Quintana Roo are among the most beautiful in the world. Every year more than 6,000,000 people visit. And it is one of the main tourist sites in Mexico. However, for several years now a new war has been waged between drug cartels and local gangs to control drug trafficking in the region.

The battle has become evident in recent months with the attacks on security elements, which stain the image of those destinations in southeastern Mexico.

In recent years, the groups with a presence in Cancun and the rest of the Mayan Riviera, the coastal strip of Quintana Roo, are the cartels of Sinaloa, Los Zetas, Golfos and Jalisco Nueva Generación.

Of these, those who have lost out are the Zetas, experts agree, although they still have several operating groups in the tourist area. Between 2010 and 2014, Los Zetas maintained control of the region, but lost it after a battle with their ex-allies, the Cartel del Golfo.

A drug trafficking figure in Quintana Roo and which became relevant was Leticia Rodríguez Lara aka “Doña Lety” who, until before her arrest, headed one of the main groups of minor drug traffickers.

The problem in Quintana Roo in general is greater than the violence in the streets. Since the 1990s, the region is one of the main drug entry doorways from South America, of which drugs are thrown from light aircraft into the sea.

Faced with this situation, the governor of the Quintana Roo entity, Carlos Joaquín, announced actions to improve security. Nevertheless, the violent events continue and the elements of security as well as the population are the most damaged sectors.
