Cárteles Unidos Leader 'El Fruto' Arrested in Guatemala on US Extradition Request

"MX" for Borderland Beat

El Fruto was arrested in Zona 10, an affluent suburb of Guatemala City. 

On Tuesday afternoon, authorities in Guatemala arrested Mexican national Adalberto Fructuoso Comparan Rodríguez (alias 'El Fruto'), former mayor of Aguililla, Michoacan, and suspected leader of Cárteles Unidos ('United Cartels'). The arrest was made on a formal US extradition request for his alleged involvement in international drug trafficking.

The Guatemalan Public Ministry (MP) detailed in a press release that El Fruto was arrested in a residential area of ​​Guatemala City along with Alfonso Rustrián, another Mexican national wanted in the US for drug charges.

According to US authorities, the two Mexicans are accused of drug trafficking, specifically conspiracy to smuggle and with intent to distribute 500 grams of methamphetamine into the US. They are wanted by the US District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

Both of them were detected in Guatemala by US officials following an investigation that showed that El Fruto held several meetings in Colombia with other high-ranking cartel members.

The two Mexicans will appear in the following hours before a Guatemalan judge who will decide in a matter of days or weeks if their extradition to Florida becomes effective.

During the first three months of 2020, 16 people with an extradition order from the US government have been arrested in Guatemala. Most of them are wanted for drug trafficking.

At the same time that the arrests were being carried out in Guatemala, in Miami, Florida, four members gang members linked to El Fruto were arrested at a drug lab.

Background

El Fruto, 57, was mayor of Aguililla, Michoacan, from 2008 to 2010, under the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD).

He is currently the suspected leader of Carteles Unidos, a criminal group made up of different cartels under a loose alliance. They are rival to the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG).

Prior to El Fruto's involvement with Carteles Unidos, he was a high-ranking member of the Knights Templar Cartel. One of the cited sources say he was a close associate of Servando Gomez Martinez (alias 'La Tuta'), former Knights Templar Cartel boss.

He is suspected of coordinating methamphetamine and heroin shipments from Michoacan, Mexico, to the US cities like Houston, Texas, and Atlanta, Georgia.

In 2015, he survived an assassination attempt in Mexico, but one his bodyguard Jose Luis Garcia Mendoza was killed. Two years prior, he had served as police officer in the Fuerza Rural (Rural Force) unit in Aguililla. This rural police force was a state-sanctioned unit that was born from the autodefensa (self-defense) groups that were active in Michoacan.

  1. Excellent 👍 catch, unfortunately it's predicable, that once a suitcase full of money is paid, he will be set free.

    1. Um no he is being extradited. Did you not read the article. USA pays mucho dinero to the Guatemalan government in aid to ensure this.

  2. Adalberto Fructuoso Comparan Rodríguez, Chirrus Reveulatas asked Mencho for financial backing to fight the Viagras they took the money and ran. That is why CJNG has it out for them bad. Fructuoso left Aguillila after CJNG burned a hotel he owned that was previously property of Felix Cornejo sosa they took everything Felix had left for his wife and Children.

    What is happening here is El Sargy is providing information against them. He opened a case against Ceasar Sepulveda Arellano for threats against his person and offering a payed ransom for his person. Once that case opened up he brought his whole family into the States those that wanted to come.

    https://www.courtlistener.com/docket/7142376/united-states-v-sepulveda-arellano/

    The case has expanded and the prosecution has added every member of Carteles Unidos the DEA, FBI, US marshaels have all opened up cases against Carteles Unidos from the information he has provided. The Evidence he has provided is pretty damming. He has been able to prove that Carteles Unidos is just as strong as CJNG, Sinaloa Cartel ect. That they are a transnational drug trafficking alliance that is trafficking large amounts of Narcotics into the US. This is also an easy case much easier to prosecute since El Sargy has addresses, names of the family members of Carteles Unidos in the US.

    2. He was hiding in Guatemala initially, then he started branching out.

      CU operates a Ecuadorian supply line.
      El Abuelo is basically their head honcho, with all the central American connections.

  6. Fruto was actually commander of the Fuerza Rural in Aguililla when he survived the attempt on his life in 2015. I wonder what he was doing in Guatemala? Either laying low, looking for drug suppliers, or money laundering.

  7. 11:48 even US Senators run out of the coop when the heat goes cold, like ted Cruz, (alias "Cancun Cruise") before coming back home when the heating gots reatored to imitate australian crocosile hunter while hunting for mexicans on the Rio Grande, with help of heavily armed border patrols of course...

    1. 2:17 PM Mencho put to much faith and trust in his fellow country men. He got swindled by Tena, El Tetos, El Abuelo, Frutoso, El Boto, Poncho La Quiringa, Eulogia Barragan his wife she handled the money laundering and money in general for CJNG in Michocan. Frutoso was sent by El Abuelo to Guatemala to handle the Cocaine route Mencho had allowed El Abuelo CJNG at the time to operate before he bite the hand that fed him.

      Their are still Michoacanos that have heart and are loyal to the core people like El Maguey, El M2, Chito Cano, Los Guerrero or how people know them as El RR, La Roca, and a couple other guys. Things have not gone great for CJNG they give people chances and then they bite the hand that feed them. The killings, extortion's, kidnappings start then the homicide rate goes sky high until they are killed off.

    4. 2:43 THEY made a BAD move to go AGAINST MENCHO, he will NOT stop until he gets to THOSE that betrayed HIM.. Just Look at what happened TO CHOLO and MARRO..
      Marro had ❤ but MENCHO was killing of all his TOP PEOPLE and the local police switched to work FOR CJNG and CAPTURED many of his PEOPLE including his mom and dad. He was so FRUSTRATED he was 😢 on a video and turned HIMSELF in..

  10. Now USA will go after carteles unidos

    ReplyDelete
  11. United Cartels are made up of the local native populations of central & southern Mexico while CDNG especially the leadership are made up of ethnic Spaniards who are working on behalf of the Mexican Elites to ethnically cleanse these communities were the Government holds no authority to enforce law thus allowing them to freely extract minerals & oil from the resource rich land without any resistance from local residents & activists...

    Drug Cartel wars are perfect cover for government sanctioned genocide..
