Authorities Arrest 'Cabo 62' After Shooting in Tijuana

"MX" for Borderland Beat

In addition to his alias Cabo 62, he also goes by his pseudonym Jose Angel Flores Zarate, or his nicknames Angel, Angelito, Gordo, or Alas.


After a shootout in Tijuana, Baja California, the state police and the Mexican Navy arrested Jose Angel Flores Hernandez ('Cabo 62'). Officials say he is one the most violent criminals in Tijuana, Rosarito, Ensenada, and Valle de Guadalupe.


Cabo 62 is a high-ranking operator of Los Cabos, a faction of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) in Baja California. Many of the murders that occur in Tijuana and its surrounding areas are ordered or approved by Los Cabos, investigators say.


During an online press conference, Baja California authorities confirmed that Cabo 62's arrest was conducted following a court-approved home search warrant. Along with Cabo 62, authorities also arrested his bodyguard, Heriberto Lopez Canchola. They were in possession of five firearms and several packages with methamphetamine.

Background


The earliest mention Borderland Beat was able to find about Cabo 62 was from January 2019, when suspected members of the Tijuana New Generation Cartel (CTNG) left a narcobanner framing him and David Lopez Jimenez ('Cabo 20') for being traitors.


Last November, Cabo 62 was injured from a gunshot in Ensenada and admitted to a private hospital in Rosarito. While he was recovering, three sicarios broke into the hospital and went into his room to kill him. They shot him three times, but none of the bullets hit vital organs and Cabo 62 survived. He was reported as stable and was released from the hospital a few days later.


In 2020, Borderland Beat reported that the leaders of Los Cabos in Tijuana were Leonardo Fabian Llamas ('Cabo 45'), Rodolfo Lopez Arellano ('Cabo 30') and Pedro Stanley Hernandez Jelinek ('El Peter'). Many other high-ranking operators have been arrested and/or killed since last year, including Mario Delval Barocio ('Cabo 33') and Edgar Perez Villa ('Cabo 89').

    1. CJNG/CAF versus CDS

      But it gets more complicated once you dig deeper in the trenches

      cabos of the CJNG, many have flipped to CDS Chapitos.

      CTNG, I think they are CJNG/CAF.

  4. Attn Scottish Zeta and 006.

    I have deployed Canada’s elite special forces Joint Task Force 2 to surpass their current record for longest confirmed sniper kill w/McMillan TAC-50. GORDO's girth visibility assures it.

    1. Has el ingeniero issued amparos or where can I read more?

    2. Amparos against his "mental Health" and "abuses" lmao, but if he manages to get out, I strongly believe he would just fly under the radar or live off the money he made, to go back and reclaim the spot as #1 boss Isn't just going to happen.

    3. Domestic violence has increased with the lockdowns and lack of jobs, etc. There may also be no correlation and just a huge coincidence. Or maybe it’s just “over reporting” by the media and this happens all the time.

    3. @9:23 - VxT is good. Usually not as in depth and more like a day-to-day crime beat page but excellent nonetheless. Best among the Mexican narco blogs because they don’t post fake news. Do you know if it’s the same guy who once managed that famous VxT Facebook page? I don’t think so but figured I’d ask. The guy who managed the FB page got many death threats and even some top Tamps pol铆ticos wanted him dead.

    1. I’d be good to dig through Zeta TJ archives and see the first mentions of these “Cabos”. I remember they were Zambada people about 10 years ago or so. Didn’t they start in Los Cabos and had ties to Chino when he was there to get rid of that Arellano guy? I may be totally making this up... memory fails.

      Delete
    2. These cabos here in TJ where created by el piolin JP. Most split after JP was internally executed by ctng inside of prison. All split after el gallero was killed. Nada que ver con e Mayo Zambada. Relax el chino en TJ menos jajaja.

    5. 851,852 Simon. Junto con el Gross fundaron ‘los Cabos’ no para el CJNG si no para el CTNG algo que el JP y Gross quisieron establecer en Tijuana con el apoyo del CJNG. Todos estos cabos estaban por de bajo del JP y GRoss. Se supo que el 50 y Cabo 8 pusieron al Gross con los Arzates en Jalisco. As铆 el Cabo 8 y 50 Se quedaron con todo lo del Gross. Al JP lo puso el Lic Estrada junto con el Trapero. el Trapero y el Lic Estrada pusieron al JP y Gallero para quedarse con todo lo de ellos y sus Cabos. Al fin del d铆a puro traicionero come solo con la escuela de sus superiores el TEO y MULETAS de ellos sali贸 esta bola. Puro chalan del TEO y MULETAS es todo lo que son estos CTNG/CABOS.

    6. 851,852 el Flaco del CAF usaba al CTNG para combatir a los Chompas y Arzates en Tijuana por el. Carne de ca帽贸n. Y en medio de la confusi贸n el Flaco sal铆a a las calles les met铆a vergasos principalmente a los Arzates y desaparec铆an entre el humo. Y cuando estaba dicho y echo al CTNG y Arzates les echaban la culpa de todo. Estrategia del CAF aqu铆 en Tijuana. Orita Ya que la mayor铆a de los Cabos se separaron del CTNG el Flaco reclut贸 al Cabo 20/ Lobo para seguir us谩ndolo en las calles. As铆 el Flaco mantiene su grupo en reserva y conserva. El Flaco es la 煤nica ala visible del CAF. Los dem谩s Menos Ruido Mas Acci贸n.

    1. Mexican authorities cover the face of suspects now. It is a federal law requirement since they believe it helps preserve presumption of innocence. Once a suspect has been convicted, one can request an unblurred picture.
