La Empresa Boss 'El 300' Stands Trial in Chihuahua; His Lawyer Was Murdered in December

 "MX" for Borderland Beat

Rene Gerardo Garza Santana ("El 300") is the founder of La Empresa, a violent gang in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua.

Rene Gerardo Garza Santana ("El 300"), the leader of La Empresa, one of the deadliest gangs in Ciudad Juarez, is on trial for a triple murder conducted in this city in October 2016. His attorney Miguel Angel Almanza was prepared to represent him but he was murdered last December. El 300 is now under the legal representation of Jorge Humberto Carrillo and Luis Calderon, two prominent criminal defense attorneys from Chihuahua.


The prosecution is looking to prove that El 300, who is currently at the Federal Social Readaptation Center in Oaxaca, masterminded a triple murder at Tres Mentiras bar in Ciudad Juarez. The three victims were: Héctor Daniel Carreón Zúñiga, Adrián Vargas Contreras, and Alejandro Renteria Arreola. Two gang members (Joel Martínez Lozada and Mario Alberto Gómez) were arrested for the crime, but they were released nearly three years ago after authorities were unable to prove their involvement in the mass murder. Witnesses say that the killing was driven by a dispute in narcomenudeo (street drug sales).

As reported by Borderland Beat, most of the violence in Ciudad Juarez is driven by competition for street-level drug sales. Investigators say that there are over 61,000 active drug users in Ciudad Juarez and that local gangs generated over US$1.5 million a week in drug proceeds. In addition, there are approximately 7,000 drug dealers in Ciudad Juarez. Many of them also operate as hitmen.


Background 

La Empresa emerged in June 2018 after El 300 had a disconnect with several leaders of La Linea and Los Aztecas, two groups once allied to the old Juarez Cartel. Cartel bosses Eduardo Ravelo ("El Tablas") and Juan Arturo Padilla Juarez ("El Genio") considered that El 300 was getting out of line and trying to take over more street drug spots in Ciudad Juarez. When confronted, El 300 and and his close associate Luis Gerardo Mendez Estevane ("El Tio") deserted and formed La Empresa.


As violence rose in Ciudad Juarez, law enforcement efforts against La Empresa, La Linea, and Los Aztecas increased. Ravelo was arrested in June, and El Genio was killed two months later. El 300 was arrested in November 2018, but he continued running La Empresa while imprisoned at the Ciudad Juarez federal penitentiary. He then formed an alliance with Los Mexicles, once allied to the Sinaloa Cartel, and gained support of their leaders Jesús Eduardo Soto Rodríguez ("El Lalo") and Luis Elías Cardoza Santiago.


La Empresa is currently headed by Omar Alejandro Garza Santana or Omar Alejandro Chávez Santana ('El Nomo', The Gnome), and two individuals simply known by their aliases 'El Saavedra'/'El Menos' and 'La Guera'.

  1. Motherfucker kissing ass to La Linea that pay his crew 1000 pesos a week to kill Aztecas old school and police officers only. Then they also work holding hands with Mexicles and Artists assassins who during the Sinaloa war killed Aztecas also.
    Fuckin Empresa Aztecas cheap ass traitors that for peanuts betray anyone in order to kiss ass to bitch ass Linea.
    This guy will eventually end up dead as well for Azteca Old School or the original Barrio Azteca that formed in El Paso wants his fat ass dead and took out his lawyer. If not for police protection he'd be dead already.

    3. 7:24 because it's a war that he began that has cost hundreds of dead if not more already but should have never began in the first place. Murders in Juarez and Chihuahua had dropoed by at leadt 50 percent if not more about two to three years ago but since this guy split from Aztecas murders have increased to almost the same level as like during the cartel wars.
      Not something to be happy about..

  3. Why did los aztecas refuse el 300 as their boss?

    1. Aztecas have bosses in the U.S. this guys 300 is not top rank like those in the states that call the shots.
      The Aztecas from the U.S. split from La Linea because La Linea was only using them as cannon fodder attacking targets like cops that can fight back as well as did not want to pay them well.
      Aztecas from the U.S. known as Barrio Azteca or Aztecas vieja escuela in Mexico had to make money after spliting with La Linea so they decided to sell meth which they could obtain easier.
      La Linea blamed the Aztecas of working with Jalisco while doing this and ordered 300s Aztecas which did devide to keep being pawns for La Linea to kill Vieja escuela Aztecas because of this.
      The irony is that bitch ass Liena really did end up working with Jalisco and now they betray their saviours Axteca Vieja Escuela that kept La Linea from being exterminated by Sinaloa.
      300 just wanted to have his own gang made up of Mexicans so called being loyal to the cartel and not to the gang that made him and saved La Linea.
      Aztecas old school or Barrio Azteca really wants no beef with La Linea but they will fight back against anyone attacking them and this means La Linea if they target them to help 300.
      Axtecas old school work alone and want no peace with Artists assasins and Mexicles who helped Sinaloa during the cartel wars while 300s Axtecas work kissing ass to these two other gangs.

    2. For disobeying Ravelo, the founder of Los Aztecas. Keep in mind Los Aztecas is a very unique gang in their sense of "brotherhood", as many of their old school members learned the ropes in US prison cells. El 300 was part of the new Aztecas generation (gangbangers from Ciudad Juarez colonias) and never rubbed well with the old school superiors.

    3. 5:63 some Mexican gang members don't know shit about loyalty. They dislike Chicanos for pickin gon them in the U.S yet they pick on Chicanos in Mexico.

    4. 5:32 - what can you say about Chuyin?

      Delete
    5. Chuyin is either not in charge of Juarez cartel anymore or is keeping low key. He did have beef with some Linea members or bosses after getting out of prison but he no longer seems to run the entire cartel because of.
      He was destined to be realeased temporarly from prison until he attended trial but he was a no show.
      He was known to pay for medicine in pharmacies in Villa Ahumada where he was from so that poor people did not have to do this and instructed his sicarios to not hurt innocents or extort them either of which they followed his commands.
      After getting out of prison he was sellong ranches and properties he owned across Chihuhua in case he went back to prison of which he hasn't.
      The only downside is that he formed the Empresa and this is what's causing most of the dead in Juarez now.

    1. Mexican cartels are just as powerful and sophisticated as any Italian, Russian, Chinese etc...organization that exists today. In all actuality they cartels work side by side with these mafias instead of feuding over petty shit like who's better at this or that in order to make money.
      I've noticed that people like you seem to love to put down anything Mexican now even including cartels simply because you envy their growth or are simply racist for all anybody knows???

    It's not racist shit because I a white boy bought this up and will defend the argument in favor of Italians or Chinese or Russians being the stringest mafias or any other mafia except the cartels.
    This is a Cartel (which is what Mexican mafias are known as), page but I feel the need to bring up the Italian shit and belittle these guys in cartels for my satisfaction.
