Mass Kidnapping in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco

Yaqui for Borderland Beat from: Aristegui / talajalisco / Excelsior
About 20 people from Guanajuato were deprived of their liberty by armed men last weekend in Puerto Vallarta, when they were on an adventure trip in all-terrain vehicles through the Western Sierra of Jalisco, The young people were originally from León, Guanajuato. 

This happened from 5 to 7 days ago depending on reporting, authorities sat on the news, the number of actual persons kidnapped is from 10 to 20 and the news is obviously being heavily controlled from mainstream media. Perhaps there is something out there on social media. Most versions are reporting 
the perpetrators were CJNG.

Another version indicates that those who intercepted them are part of a group linked to the Santa Rosa de Lima Cartel , which is led by “El Marro”.

As is known, every year groups of bikers and fans of ATVs organize themselves in different parts of the central area of ​​the country to come in caravans to Puerto Vallarta. They come from regions of the industrious Bajío area and leave Guadalajara along the Sierra route.

The vacationers were on the ride known as “Vallartazo”, they were driving RZR type ATVs when they were surprised by criminals, according to local media and sources from the Reforma newspaper.

The events occurred during the journey of the trip known as "Vallartazo", which begins in Guadalajara, passes through Ameca, Talpa de Allende, Guachinango, Mascota and San Sebastián del Oeste and reaches Puerto Vallarta. It was Saturday, July 18, when they were caught as they were arriving at the tourist port. Most versions 

As they passed through these towns, alleged members of the CJNG located the travelers and they hunted them until they were caught in the streets of Fluvial in Puerto Vallarta  last Saturday where the event route ends.
The municipal authorities and investigative agencies concealed the details of the information that, however, this Saturday have been revealed by various media .

Last Saturday , July18 this was the only news released of the events , ie published at the time by the 
Tribune de la Bahia:                             
"On Saturday afternoon, there was a shooting in the Fluvial Vallarta subdivision, where up to now, an injured person , two detained people , a van with firearm impacts and two abandoned razer-type vehicles are reported. The agents seized a white van at the gas station on the Las Juntas bend, where two people are being held.

"Until now it is unknown what happened, since no one was a witness, the agents were only informed about gunshots on Fluvial Vallarta Avenue , Crossing with Great Lakes Avenue and upon arrival, the officers located the person wounded , in addition to the two abandoned razers."
At the scene, the authorities located various AR-15 shells scattered along with two useful bullets of this caliber.

Sources close to the victims - at least 10 of them identified as small businessmen - reported that the abducted had already been located by criminals, apparently members of the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel (CJNG), according to the AM portal .

According to various testimonies, those affected were traveling in RZR-type vehicles, ATVs and all-terrain trucks , when they were intercepted by the armed group on  Avenida Fluvial , near the intersection with Avenida Grandes Lagos, in the Fraccionamiento Fluvial Vallarta.

The investigations carried out so far indicate that the tourists were on board several RZR vehicles, ATVs and trucks when they were ambushed on Fluvial Avenue and its confluence with the Great Lakes. There the tourists were captured and, as was said, one lost his life in the attack.
After a shooting, several of the people who were part of the tourist convoy were deprived of their freedom. Meanwhile, La Silla Rota reports that the events occurred on the afternoon of Tuesday, July 21; ( not Sat July 18) during which Joaquín Miguel lost his life, who after trying to flee from the criminals was shot, remaining lifeless on the asphalt.

One businessman, Joaquín Alba, dedicated to the transport of construction materials, was wounded, who allegedly was hit by falling from one of the RZR-type motor vehicles. He later died in a hospital.

After the attack, municipal authorities located three vehicles that apparently belonged to the victims.

Another source close to the case said that the attackers began calling the relatives of the victims to ask for money for their ransom.

Until this Saturday there still was no official confirmation of the facts: 
Jalisco State Attorney General Solís Gómez "made it clear that neither in Jalisco nor in Guanajuato is there any complaint about the disappearance of people or that members of this group have been deprived of their liberty". Solís Gomez on his Twitter feed says "follow our press coverage" . The Puerto Vallarta City Council also denies the event.
The Heraldo de Mexico Reports:
Meanwhile the State Attorney General Gerardo Octavio Solís Gómez , explained that the group of people came from the city ​​of Guanajuato , that some knew each other from time ago and others only by name or nickname. They enjoyed the trek through Ameca, Mixtlán, Mascota and San Sebastián del Oeste . However, in Puerto Vallarta, when they were spending the night and going to eat, they were intercepted by criminals who tried to rob them of their vehicles. A shooting was unleashed, leaving one injured, the man had tried to resist.         

“Due to the circumstances of their trip, they divided into two groups. One of the groups arrived at the Boca de Tomates beach, where they decided to eat. It is the group that would be made up of all-terrain vehicles. In the case of the pick ups there are data that were separated into another group, they arrived in Puerto Vallarta, they were walking along the boardwalk. They established communication with the Boca de Tomates group to continue to the accommodations they had contracted.

"Unexpectedly they are approached, their path is blocked by a series of vehicles, chaos ensues, they try to flee, there are a series of shots. One person is injured on the spot, others manage to flee, some standing on the ground, others in a vehicle. Later, various authorities, the municipal police and the public ministry arrive. The wounded person sadly dies in hospital. Various vehicles were insured , ” explained the prosecutor.

“ We have worked in the investigation of this homicide and in the search for missing persons, for the possibility that they exist. In Jalisco we have no complaint from any missing person. We have been working in coordination with the Prosecutor of Guanajuato, in that entity they have no complaint of disappearance either

"We do not have it here, there is no complaint of disappearance of people from Guanajuato. However, it is not an issue that we are leaving aside, it is part of the investigations along with the murder and theft. We will continue with this line. There is no complaint so far for the disappearance of a person, " he added.

FYI: "Vallartazo": 500 kilometer route in Jalisco, for all terrain vehicles. The path begins in Guadalajara and ends in Puerto Vallarta. The route clears obstacles such as gaps, mud flats, slopes, mountains, stones and all natural obstacles that 4X4 vehicles may overcome. It is an annual event.

As usual this leaves many more questions than answers.

    2. Jalisco May have been tracking them and looking for some that are there. One of the men worked in construction and it’s been reported Marro and his people made money off those people so maybe they wanted to kill some in the group for maybe working with marro? Not to say they’re members in the cartel but often times you have to work with criminals in business in mexico whether you want to or not. Or it could be random but I say coincidences are rare.

  4. It wasn't reveled by the Media, I saw it on twitter and facebook. It is just an audio of a man saying that a guy he knows told him that their were 20 to 25 of them going to do that motorcross stuff in a bunch of new badass pickups dodge rams hauling side/sides and atvs when a large group of trucks and sicarios showed up a pick up managed to flew and 2 on an atv when one fell down and he was killed. They then took the rest 20 or more.

    At the funeral of that guy who fell the 3 that managed to survive told him that after they fled they went to the local police two of them and were taken to the airport and sent to leon. The third one pretended to be dead and ran and got help from a couple who took him to the airport and gave him 1000 pesos.

    He then goes on about how the media is lying and that they said the one killed who was a businessman died from an argument gone wrong.

    I call bullshit something sounds sketch about it. Mostly that he isn't the one that it happened to he heard it from another person who was at the funeral. It sounds so sketch because El Grupo elite who made its video made it in a rancho outside Puerto Valarata.

  11. Although CJNG takes it's name from Jalisco state the city of Puerto Vallarta has always been under the control of CDS. Child prostitution has always been rampant in that city as well as the rest of the state but Puerto Vallarta in particular is visited by Americans by the thousands if not hundreds of thousands each and every year.
    Something that eveyone here BB should know before cheering on CDS or thinking Americans can do no wrong either.

    1. Los CUINIS own MANY resorts and BUSINESS in that are too.. All CARTEL operate THE SAME for the MOST part

    2. Many thousands of those Americans do not visit PV for the prostitutes, child or otherwise. My wife,family and friends have flown into PV and headed north to Punta Burros, Punta Mita, Sayulita, and beyond for many years. Strictly to relax amid beautiful surroundings and decent surf.

    3. I thought CJNG has Puerto Vallarta. Remember when they kidnapped Chapo's sons at the restaurant where they were having a birthday party?

    4. If PV is CDS plaza why were los chapitos lifted from there by CJNG??

      Delete
    5. 10:18 & 10:21 from @10:23
      OPEN your eyes!
      Why would the Chapitos be PARTYING-keyword in Puerto Vallarta in the first place if they didn't think it was SAFE to do so there to begin with? I've never heard of them partying in Chihuahua much less Coahuila for example.
      Second if Jalisco really controlled PV why were the Chapitos released almost immediately after their capture? If Jalisco really controlls PV why would they be afraid of CDS comming in their turf to rescue the kids by force after CDS threatened to do this?
      Lastly ask any law enforcement agency in the world and they will tell you that it only takes say 6 well armed men to kidnap more than a dozen unarmed people anywhere in the world!
      CDS owns PV!

    6. Not that it matters but most of the white visitors to Vallarta and the Bahia nowadays are Canadians.....not Americans......the gay visitors I suspect are from all parts the world....go figure....

    7. 10:08 many important "businessmen" from the U.S. travel alone every year there to conduct business transactions and for leisure.
      Pick up a book or read which foreing city in Mexico is their ideal choice for these kind of transactions and ypu will see that PV is by far in their top list.

    8. PV is 100% CJNG. CDS is doing nothing but getting kidnapped in PV

  15. This happened in GUERRERO with 22 MICHOACANOS kidnapped BECAUSE they had michoacan plates..it was LIKE 12 years ago when guerrero cartels WERE in conflict WITH MICHOACANOS.. Too MANY men have been confused in Mexico by CARTELS for traveling to DIFFERENT areas with more than 3 or 4 guys in same truck..

  16. Come on everybody knows you can't travel like this in Mexico you'll be mistaken for the contras in the quickness

  17. I've done the off road route from Guadalajara to PV. There are places that you are told to stay on the main roads and not take the smaller side trails.

    At first it looked like they were captured in the mountains but now it appears that it happened after they arrived in Puerto Vallarta.
    There is more to this story....

  19. Last year pv won award for safest city in Mexico. Between covid and this, I suspect it’s becoming an Acapulco soon enough

  20. My theory is that its some dumb littlw criminal group that tried to rob them. Or if it was Cjng its cause they probably had warned them to take it easy dont be ripping threw certain areas and driving fast burning rubber. And they probably didn't listen and the tracked them down.

  21. Three years ago, I went to visit family in my rancho (small village) in the state of Guanajuato; I rented a vehicle in the international airport of Morelia (Alvaro Obregon) and as I was driving in the City of Moroleon, GTO., I was stopped by the cops. The reason they gave me was because I was talking on my cellphone, the cellphone had a dead battery. They questioned me for about 15 minutes asking the same question over and over again: "What are you doing here? What business do you have around here? Aren't you a little far away from where you are from?". I kept telling them I was from California visiting relatives, and it didn't occur to me that the reason they stopped me was because the rented vehicle had Chihuahua license plates. It was when they asked me to show proof of the rental, which I did and they finally let me go, but not till I gave them a 'mordida' (bribe)...for sure the police were working for some cartel...

  23. Seems fairly simple. CJNG didn't like the guys from Guanajuato (Leon) tromping through their small towns enroute to PV.
    Guanajuato is in flux and Mencho's sicarios were given a job to kidnap for ransom the group from a contested plaza.
    I have to say the ATV crews should have thought this out before the trip.

  24. My girl in PV always said Chapo ran PV, but that was 10yrs ago when she said that. It's my understanding cjnj runs PV. PV is very well organized and low on the violence scale. The police even seem to manage doing a decent job i.e. armed robbery of the mall and they catch the bad guys twice. Usually people from outside of PV. Tons of restaurants owned by foreigners and locals. I suspect this will be the beginning of bigger problems. There's a lot of money in PV and it's a great place. I hope they don't ruin it

    1. PV has always had child prostitution and wealthy American business men have always visited there and historically has been CDS territory. Can't believe why people don't read more or watch the news more at the very least to know this???
