Authorities Arrest 'El Durango', High-Ranking Sinaloa Cartel Member in Sonora

"MX" for Borderland Beat

José Bibiano Cabrera Cabrera is known as “El Durango” and/or “El Trakas”

José Bibiano Cabrera Cabrera, alias “El Durango”, a suspected boss of Gente Nueva, a faction of the Sinaloa Cartel, was arrested in Altar, Sonora.

His arrest was carried out after an operation implemented by elements of the National Guard (GN) and personnel of the Criminal Investigation Agency of the Attorney General's Office in Altar municipality. Immediately after his arrest, a Mexican Army helicopter transported the suspect to Hermosillo municipality for future legal proceedings.

Local media have indicated that a susupect identified as Daniel Jáuregui Martínez was also detained in the operation.

El Durango has been on the government's radar for several months. But the operation to capture him intensified over the weekend when a group of armed men ambushed Mexican Army soldiers in Caborca. The attack left 9 dead, including two military men, as reported by Borderland Beat.

According to the investigations, El Durango also headed the "Grupo Delta" cell, which is reportedly led by people aligned to Los Chapitos, sons of Joaquín 'El Chapo' Guzmán. El Durango was reportedly the right-hand man of Humberto Limón López, alias 'Noveno', 'Chubeto', and/or 'El Cazador'.

Through an Instagram account, El Durango boasted weapons, golden handguns engraved with his alias, wads of US dollars and Mexican pesos, as well as tactical equipment. He sometimes posted messages and did live broadcasts taunting and threatening his rivals, as if he were a drug cartel "influencer".

Borderland Beat analysis

In Sonora, Los Chapitos are competing against La Barredora 24/7, headed by Rodrigo Páez Quintero, nephew of old-school drug kingpin Rafael Caro Quintero. One of his main lieutenants is Jesús Darío Murrieta Navarro, alias “Cara de Cochi”. La Barredora 24/7 is linked to La Plaza and/or the Caborca ​​Cartel, which has presence across Sonora.

As reported by Borderland Beat, much of the violence in Sonora is driven by conflicts between several factions of the Sinaloa Cartel and local drug groups. This turf is a strategic location for drug trafficking given its proximity to the US state of Arizona. Los Chapitos faction of the Sinaloa Cartel operates there with the support of Los Salazar faction. They are said to be competing with La Plaza and/or the Caborca Cartel.

Local reports have mentioned that the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) may be working with Caro Quintero to fight the Sinaloa Cartel.

Other groups have been reported in the area, including a gang known as Los Jabalies and/or Los Jabalis, formed by the Villagrana family, and Los Memos, headed by Adelmo Niebla González and/or Guillermo Nieblas Nava ('El G3').

    1. It was leaked when this war first started that Cartel de Caborca had ties to GN. It might be the same scenario like when CJNG ambushed and killed 19 state police officers since they were riding around with Viagras at the time.

    1. Thanks BB! lets see what will happen next.Will RCQ make a movie?He is supposed to have gone to film school so who knows?One thing for sure he has a lot of subject matter for his movie,he apparently been in the estacas blindados at the front,fact he is know to carry hair dye with him in his skinny jeans?
      He made a decent documentary about the inequalities of prison life when he was in the jug?Anyone see it?

  4. So RCQ now owns and calls for support from GN or maybe Mencho owns them and is helping this way, because Salazars had all the Federal and local cops.

    1. @7:31 Good input, as I've said before all cartels use government at any given chance. It also shows how corporations work with local diplomacy, GN in Sonora could be supporting Caros while in Michoacán they could support Viagras (which are supposed to be allied to Caros enemies for example).

    1. my guess is the government was waiting to fully confirm his identity. and then once that happened they leaked it officially in the media. but the pictures made it before, although that wasn't intended.

    2. They leaked it officially in the media?
      Waiting to fully confirm his identity,from his falsies,last time he saw them they were in a glass of water,they were secuestrado and ransomed,El Durango was originally from Ulster in Ireland(hence the name)now he may not be able to go back,who will take his place?

      Maybe he will be a hunted man depending where he lands,but if he could get a medical to remove the rat from his arse they could attempt a rescue,even if they couldnt remove the rat they could still use the intel the rat gives them?He was bad into coke and having rats rammed up his arse off a female with a strap on,strange shit that.El Durango may be freed who knows,i dont?

  8. He will probably spend his entire life behind bars with the evidence they have against him. He admitted a few crimes on Ig live. He probably thought that they'll never catch him.

  16. Things were out of control in Caborca, it was almost daily the killings, everyday. It would stop, but only for a day or 2. If the killings stop drastically, which is good for either side specially the Altar people since they just took a big hit, it means that there is a truce(tregua) agreement. Noveno people lost some influence on the military since fighting with them and killing them 2 soldiers. Time and actions will tell

    2. This is going around on r/NarcoFootage because many of the photos we have of Durango/Traka show him weighing about 50-70 pounds less than he does in the arrest photos. They also seem to think that all the videos Durango posted of sicarios doing flips and shooting and other weird drills actually showed Durango himself and not his soldiers. Durango never showed his face (or any of the sicarios’ faces) so we don’t know that he is currently as skinny as he appeared in photos from 3+ years ago. That is pretty much the only substance for the “this is not the real El Durango” rumor; old photos of Durango that showed a skinnier man than the one who was arrested.

    3. At 11:46am, this is why I commented he might the guy in the photo might be the other guy mentioned. The guy with the last name of the paletero

    4. @EL LP: No the man pictured is the real Durango; the eye placement and spacing between the eyes, the nose, the spacing between the nose and top lip, all the same as other photos of Durango. He certainly looks fatter than in other photos from over a year ago, but it’s the same guy.

      Delete
    5. @EL LP: also, here’s a recent photo that allegedly shows a heavier Durango, albeit with his face covered. https://m.facebook.com/sonorainformativo/photos/a.109138923782050/479178013444804/?type=3&source=54

    1. It’s weird. Caborca and people from gente nueva altar had/have beef. On the other side altar al Nogales mayos had/have beef. Did magdalena stayed under cazador control after the shootouts and the military ambush in ejido la cebolla and the Blackhawk shooting? Or did Nogales mayos kept it? Idk. If killings stop in Caborca drastically that means something was arranged behind closed door, after Durango’s arrest. It will be known in the next couple weeks/days. War is not good for either side;costs a lot of money and too much attention being drawn, specially since it’s close to the border.

  37. Well, since this event took place let me tell you how Caborca has been. Peaceful, no more shootings, no more houses shoot. Like it never happened. Went from 100 to 0 in a blink of an eye. Some arrangements were clearly done behind closed doors. It might be a truce “tregua” or something else. Wat is no bueno and maybe they came to a deal. If it explodes again well it means they were just taking a break but so far it stopped (killings)
