Baja California authorities identify more CJNG and Sinaloa Cartel sicarios and drug dealers in Tijuana

In a recent report published by the Tijuana-based and award-winning news magazine Zeta, Baja California state officials released the names of 48 newly-identified sicarios and drug dealers from the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) and the Sinaloa Cartel that operate in Tijuana's most dangerous boroughs. These criminals rotate in and out of prison and are responsible for driving violence in the city.

The criminals in the report operate in Sánchez Taboada, Natura and Centenario, three boroughs in Tijuana. At least 40% of the murders committed in Tijuana are committed in these three locations. In addition, at least 89 drug sale locations are located in these areas. Tijuana currently has the highest homicide rate in the state of Baja California, but authorities say they are working to curb the drug-violence.

Since Jaime Bonilla Valdez became governor nearly five months ago, Tijuana has 766 recorded homicides out of a total of 1,014 throughout the entire state. The rest of the homicides are spread out in other municipalities: Ensenada, Mexicali, Tecate and Rosarito. Authorities say the COVID-19 outbreak has not slowed down drug-related homicides.

Baja California's 1,000th homicide took place in Tijuana on 24 March 2020. The victim was an unidentified man who was found dead in Presa Rural neighborhood with head injuries. Later that day, four more bodies were found throughout Tijuana (one less than Tijuana's daily average rate for homicides). Like in most cases, no one was arrested for the murders.

Centenario borough
Baja California state authorities identified 14 CJNG and Sinaloa Cartel members active in Centenario borough. 

* One of the CJNG cells is active in Otay Constituyentes, Rio Vista, Tecnologico, Colonia Manuel Rivera and parts of Plaza Otay.

* The other CJNG cell operates in Nido de las Aguilas, Granjas Division del Norte Rinconada and parts of Magisterial

* A Sinaloa Cartel cell operates out of Módulos de Otay, Parque Industrial Chilpancingo and el Oeste de la colonia Magisterial zones.

These details were gathered after authorities arrested criminals in the area. With their confessions, they were able to discover 20 drug sale locations controlled by the CJNG, 16 controlled by the Sinaloa Cartel, in addition to 9 more drug stores (tienditas) close to Zona Este. Investigators stated that Zona Este is controlled by other gangs with less homicide-related activities.


The ring leaders and dealers operating in Centenario borough
These 14 criminals report to three ring leaders:

Israel Alejandro Vazquez Vazquez ("El Cabo 50"): He is a regional leader of the CJNG and reports under a man known only by his alias "El Champion". 

José Antonio Robles Covarrubias: He reports under El Cabo 50. His main drug distributor is Manuel Ruvalcaba Franco ("El Cocho") and he works closely with two men identified only by their aliases "El Apá" and "El Wero". These last two have several male and female subordinates, including: Armando García Luna, Gabriel Galindo Cornejo, Agustín Ibarguen Madrid, Azucena Bautista and Xitlalic Loza.

- "El Miguel": This Sinaloa Cartel member is only known by his alias. The subordinates under him are Gibrán Raúl Pérez, Jesús Bautista Arvizu, Ángel Rodríguez Montoya, Iván Ruiz Sandina, Rigoberto Barajas and Manuel García Valdez.

Natura borough
Baja California state authorities have mapped out 15 drug sale locations in this borough. The turf is divided in 8 parts; 5 of them are controlled by the CJNG and 3 are controlled by the Sinaloa Cartel.

The turf is not uniformly divided and these two groups often have drug sale locations right next to each other. This has caused Natura borough to experience higher levels of drug violence.

For example, in-between Urbi Villas del Prado and Valle Dorado zones (controlled by the CJNG) there is rival cell of the Sinaloa Cartel. In Hacienda Las Delicias III, where two Sinaloa Cartel cells operate, is surrounded by the rival CJNG from the north and south (in Hacienda Las Delicias I and Bosques de Natura, respectively).

These 15 drug sale locations are controlled by three ring leaders:

Leonardo Fabián Llamas ("El Cabo 45"): He works under the CJNG and has several people under his direct supervision, including: Álvaro Arellano Pacheco, Rubén Gámez Estrada, Alfredo Armendáriz Torres and Carlos Fierro Arámburo. Under these are Leonardo Vázquez, José Humberto Mendoza, Elena Arroyo, and others known by their aliases "El Drek", "El Fantasma" and "Bebeto".

- "Toño" / "Tigre": He is aloso identified as a member of the CJNG. Under his command are Ángel Gabriel Guerrero García, Alejandro de la Cruz Ángeles and two more identified only by their aliases, Sebastián "El Negro" and "El Coer".

Víctor Manuel Bedolla Torres ("Don Vic"): He works for the Sinaloa Cartel and his direct subordinate is Marco Antonio Valdivia Melchor. His direct line of dealers are Daniel Méndez Peñaloza, Ramón Juvera Aguayo, José Guadalupe Gurrola Navarro, Sebastián González Maciel, José Núñez González, Sergio Magallanes Soto and others known only by their aliases, like "El Ronco", "Cabezón", "Ridel", "Veneno", "Caballo", "El Chueco" and "El Kion".

Sánchez Taboada borough
Since 2015, homicide rates in Sánchez Taboada have risen since many drug dealers affiliated with the Tijuana Cartel and the Sinaloa Cartel joined the CJNG. According to police reports, 90% of this borough is controlled by the CJNG. The Sinaloa Cartel has some presence in Camino Verde zone. Sánchez Taboada has 12 drug sale locations; 10 controlled by the CJNG and 2 controlled by the Sinaloans.

El Cabo 50 from the CJNG controls most of Sánchez Taboada. However, his power is also divided with two ring leaders, Adrián Homero Hernández Quintero and Jesús Enrique Martínez Soto ("Ñañas"). The criminals on the streets are Cristian Reynoso Ordaz, Axel González, Kevin Aguilar, Alberto Rocha, David López González, Abel Osuna Luna and Aarón Lizárraga García.

Under the the Sinaloa Cartel is a man identified by his alias "El Prieto". His direct subordinate is Fernando Joel Flores Logar, who has Gerardo Escobedo, Alberto Diaz and two men known by their aliases "El Pantera" and "El Pica" under his command.

Homicides increase in Zona Este
In March 2020, there was atypical gang activitiy reported in Zona Este, specifically in Cañadas del Florido zone. This zone is primarily under the control of the siblings Francisco and Luis Mendoza Uriarte, who are collectively referred to as Los Uriarte. They share the turf with siblings René and Alfonso Arzate García, known as Los Arzate.
Two Sinaloa Cartel ring leaders operating in Zona Este
Baja California authorities stated that the Sinaloa Cartel has several safe houses in this area where they store drugs before they are smuggled into the United States. Those responsible for supervising these properties are Alberto López Uriarte, Gustavo Germán Ayala ("El Patachín") and José Luis Correa Verdín.

Authorities were unable to identify which CJNG members are responsible for supervising safe houses in the area. However, they indicated that the CJNG has safe houses in Mariano Matamoros, in several industrial park locations, in Colonia Francisco Villa and El Florido Sector One and El Florido Sector Two.

The police discovered 26 drug sale locations that are controlled by two Sinaloa Cartel members:

Gabriel Modesto Lázaro Meave

- Sansón de Jesús Enrique Hernández

Both of them receive support from "El Chelo" Mejía López – the brother of Hugo Mejía López ("El Griego") – Héctor Ramón Díaz Valles, Vladimir Rubio Ramírez and José Vera Rizo. Many of these suspects already have arrest warrants for their capture and are being sought by state officials.

  4. Raul Gutierrez Cisneros, Alias, El Raul or El Tio, a middle level operative of the Sinaloa Cartel previously trafficking out of Phoenix, Arizona, Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, Mexicali, and Tijuana, was apprehended by FBI agents in Phoenix with 150 pounds of Meth belonging to CDS, with wholesale value of $800K. Raul has spent 6 years in US Federal prison and will be released next week. He should be deported back to Mexico, where he is a citizen. He has not paid back CDS for the loads he lost. He may go to Tijuana, BC, to hide out. He is from Acapulco originally, maybe he will jump ship to Menchos group.

    2. Because the government switched sides started supporting cjng duh doesn't take a genius to figure that out. But everything I've seen from these last two or three months gives me the idea that the government is trying to switch back to supporting the Sinaloa cartel almost like they feel like they've made a mistake. Not just the Mexican Government the American government as well.

    3. 1249, you look at this map and actually believe this is the current landscape? Hahah sht changes every couple years depending on whose pockets politicos get filled. Right now, jalisco is dropping like flys across the country. TJ is 70pct CDS pipeline. Remember, Jaliszcos dont have a border city on hold, they are paying large fees for most of the loads, thus the short term alliance with gulf's. Jalisco has been hit very hard lately with tremendous loads taken. CDS gave up a tunnel and load recently so to keep the offensive up against Jaliszcos. It's all a campaign and everyone is after Mencho, once he falls, everyone Aligns with the new agreement.

    5. @michellmiller callate guey 😂 if cds loses a load ,a tunnel or a capo is arrested its its part of the big plan huh? 😂 Obviously you are a fucking keyboard narco

  7. Did CAF swore alligance to CJNG?

  8. Too many cds switching sides to CJNG, in that game it's better to be feared than loved. It's sure showing in Tijuana.. Maybe it has to do with the many SNITCHING cds got exposed in chapos trial.. NOT to mention that vicentillo admitted to being a government INFORMANT.. In an illicit drug dealing cartel with THOUSANDS of PEOPLE in CDS and then hearing they ate snitches.. Only a DUMB A$$ would still be dealing with them

  9. 8:33 the whole BC peninsula became contaminated when Jorge hank rohn decided to become the owner of tijuana, because his daddy had all that money.
    The wars against the AFOS produced many new residents in Mexico City, Queretaro, Guanajuato, Hidalgo, but julian leyzaola and capella ibarra (from mexico city) left the state in the hands private state and municipal police that bought out the CJNG away from AFOS and Sinaloas with promises of two cups of maruchan in every pot and financing for weapons for every turncoat chapulin, there is always the military taking from everybody, of course, Leyzaola had to cooperate some to get some, through the military, the CJNG even had their own exclusive "use of the marmed forces secretary of defense" computerized weapon making equipment.
    The mexican army also got Nacho Coronel out of the way for La Mencha, and Lt. Arturo Guzman Decena out of the way for los zetas de El Judas and las marinelas took El Barbas out of the way for FECAL and genarco garcia luna and el Lazca out for moreira, and it was all no coincidence, the military obey their politicos and the politicos obey their business associates.
    Like Alfaro's mexican big pharma.

  10. I never had seen were cjng go to a plaza and fight for it by themselves and take it it’s not the same when you get help or they switch side that’s like a restaurant just saying under new management they have tried to get Guanajuato thinking Marro wasn’t even going to fight and look what happened cjng tried but couldn’t so they sent the government to help them out and when they got most of Marro people cjng sent in delta whatever they are and still can’t even get it done and don’t even get me started on Michoacán they have a presence ther only because los autodefensa let them at first but then they realize that cjng are lacras and look what happened they are still trying to get in to Michoacán and can’t only on the border states like Jalisco or Colima were they can sneak in and run out Tijuana was basically giving to them by CAF and the traders that switched sides and then switched sides and they still can’t get it done it’s going to be another Michoacán in TJ because they seen cjng true colors and split alliances with them

    1. Michoacan is a different beast, you can't compare it to Tijuana. The reason they can't take out michoacan is because they don't back down and have good sicarios to fight with CJNG, other places get scared and instead of fighting them they would rather join them than get killed. Marro is getting cornered and cjng took most of Guanajuato and killed most his trusted SICARIOS, it's only a matter of time before he's killed or CAPTURED.
      I give him props for having BALLS BUT he over estimated his POWER in Guanajuato.. I know you PROBABLY hate cjng and mencho but let's be REAL, cjng can pretty much take ANY PLAZA but sinaloa, michoacan and tamaulipas would be the toughest to get because those places are rooted with capos for generations and are more connected and organized

    2. @9:26 CDS got a foothold in TJ when they started supplying Teo and his crew with weapons after he ran to Sinaloa when Inge and his people beat his fat ass. Without Teo becoming a proxy, CDS doesn't expand in TJ.
      Got any more complaints?

    3. Exacly some one that sees it right cjng are nothing but scumbags

    4. 2:43 exactly every cartel does the same to gain control of a plaza just cjng does it better, cds could of been the biggest and baddest cartel they had it all but they decided to snitch on each other and that was their down fall, nobody likes snitches but snitches

    1. They were "super low profile" in TJ when Los Aretes had it on lock porque los desaparecían. CDS and low profile is an oxymoron, CDS y fanfarrón is accurate.
