Los Viagras Behind Much of Friday’s Violence in Michoacán says Head of SSP

"HEARST" for Borderland Beat

A truck burned in Michoacán on Friday, May 28 2021.   

Israel Reyes Patron, the head of the Michoacán Ministry of Public Security (SSP) said in a press conference on Saturday, May 29 2021 that Los Viagras, of Carteles Unidos were the perpetrators behind the violence in Morelia on Friday. He also attributed many of Friday’s roadblocks in the Tierra Caliente region of Michoacán to Los Viagras. Full review of the events of Friday here.

On Friday in the city of Morelia, 5 vehicles were set on fire. Israel Reyes Patron said of this:

“What happened in Morelia, we know and we have information that those responsible are members of Los Viagras cells, of a group that is settled in the area. And what they wanted was to generate distraction from the Government, so as not to generate actions against these criminal groups.” He also stated that 2 people carrying firearms were detained in Morelia on Friday and that they are currently being investigated.

He continued on to clarify that these events were unrelated to the upcoming June 6 2021 elections, saying "It is a merely criminal issue that has nothing to do with the exercise of the electoral process.”

“It is for control of the area. It is a conflict that this group that is in Pinzándaro, Buenavista, with the group that is in Aguililla, feel harassed. And they generated these types of events to draw the attention and the Government's brand, and in some way they protect themselves in their area ”, he explained. "It is about sabotage, blockades and communication channels."

“The conflict is in the same place as always, in front of Aguaje, El Terrero, where the territorial control of the group that is settled in Aguililla is divided against those who are settled in Pinzándaro”, he said.

Reforma reports that the group in control of Pinzándaro, Buenavista is Los Viagras. They also report that Cartel Jalisco New Generation (CJNG) is present in Aguililla municipality.

Israel Patron Reyes, the head of the Michoacán
Ministry of Public Security.

On Friday in the town of El Terrero in Buenavista municipality, National Guard members were attacked with sticks and stones by a group of people.

"Armed civilians are those who are uncomfortable with the presence of the government, every time we are present they attack us or try to get us out of the area wanting us not to generate any action against the criminals who are settled in that area."

"The same happens with the National Guard, with SEDENA and with the State Police. Every time we enter it is a permanent conflict and it is not the population, it is manipulation by people dedicated to criminal matters.”

In regards to the reports that a Bodega Aurrerá in Apatzingan was set on fire, he clarified that the video that was broadcast in social networks said to depict it was material from years ago. "SSP personnel arrived at the scene and confirmed that it was not real information," he said.

Borderland Beat Analysis
Although none of this is necessarily new information, it is new to hear this information from a source that is reputable enough to merit covering. Having government officials confirm that many of the events of Friday were perpetrated by Los Viagras is somewhat out of the norm for Michoacán SSP.

They, like many police agencies across Mexico, rarely comment on the specific cartel affiliation of perpetrators. They tend to characterize detainees under the blanket term “member of a criminal group”, with no further specificity.

For Michoacán law enforcement and security forces, this press conference may mark a turning point, or it may stand a one time outlier from their standard protocol. 


Los Viagras is a cartel group that is part of the larger Carteles Unidos alliance which fights Cartel Jalisco New Generation for control of the state of Michoacán.


Los Viagras is thought to be led by, Nicolás Sierra Santana alias “El Gordo” and Rodolfo Sierra Santana along with their brothers some of which include: José Carlos alias La Sopa (deceased) and Gabino. They are commonly referred to as the “Sierra Santana brothers”.


Other well known cartels within Carteles Unidos include:


Cartel del Abuelo, or Cartel de Tepalcatepec, originating from Tepalcatepec municipality, is thought to be led by Juan José Farias Álvarez alias "El Abuelo”. 


Los Blancos de Troya, originating from Apatzingan municipality, is thought to be led by César Sepúlveda Arellano alias "El Boto". 


Los Reyes, originating from Los Reyes municipality, is thought to be led by Luis Enrique Barragán Chávez alias "El R-5" and Alfonso Fernández Magallan alias "Poncho la Quiringua". 


Los Tenas, originating from Aquila municipality, is thought to be led by Fernando Cruz Mendoza alias "El Tena".

Note: Earlier version attributed 3 gas station fires and a department store fire to the city of Morelia when it was the city of Apatzingan, as reported in the article on Friday.  Those details have been corrected.

  1. Looks like the Michoacán state government will no longer protect CU. Notice how they stopped protecting CU and like 3 days later CJNG conquered Aguililla and 3 other towns in the vicinity. El Señor de los gallos avanzado 🔥🔥🔥🔥🐓🐓🐓🐓

  2. Only Viagras/CU has the manpower and influence in Michoacán to set off this many blockades at the same time. CJNG has plenty of people and influence in Michoacán as well, but not as much as CU.

They aint no better than CJNG but the Revueltas made it personal and that was their biggest mistake now not even their family members who are not involved are safe! If you play durty you get dealt duty

  6. That isn't El Tena. He's an older dude, 50's to early 60's, that's balding and if I remember correctly he's light complected. If I'm not mistaken Rodolfo aka La Sopa or La Teresa is the leader of Los Viagras aka "LNFM", that's why he was meeting with La Tuta before they unaligned and started "fighting" against CT. According to SARGY, Sangre Nueva Guerrerense is also another group that conforms CU/Panochas Unidas.
    What's up secret_management aka IDK SHIT but cheerlead for the MUERTOS DE HAMBRE de Gallinas Unidas, is this high ranking security official also wrong about who was causing the fires and blockades or are you just clueless and trying to spin the narrative for your scum people?

  11. HEARST nice job from my understanding the only Sierra Santana who is dead is La Sopa Carlos Sierra Santana. Rodolfo Sierra Santana is the boss of the Viagras.

    The Viagras are Marianno Sierra Santana, Rodolfo Sierra Santana, Nicolas Sierra Santann, Gabino Sierra Santana and El Chako forget his name.

    Marianno Sierra Santana, Gabino Sierra Santana, El Chako were all in prison but AMLO let them out along with El Boto. He released the majority of the leadership of the Viagras, Blancos De Troya.

  13. Yet secret management will say it's propaganda and it's really CJNG heating up their plazas by sneaking in a few men to heat the plaza up. When previously he says CJNG couldn't get In at all. sM is a joke and a CU lacra himself. He's already said that his uncle's and cousins are chokomiles and part of abuelo farias cartel. Wouldn't doubt if he's was deported and is out there himself.

    It's funny because he asked as a way to prove the CU lacras wouldn't do it "why would CU heat up their own plazas" well first of all, CJNG wouldn't hest it up because it'll bring GOVERNMENT ALLIED TO CU so basically itll make it harder for themselves.. now if CU does it, it casts a spotlight on the area and Govt is sent and in turn their presence protects CU AND the spotlight being on the area brings the attention of AMLO and his govt.
    What they didn't account for is all the videos, radio frequencies and pictures that proved their stupidity
    Keep making excuses secret homosexual
    You're delusional and you're the only one who says CJNG isn't advancing
    All news outlets say they are surrounded and CJNG advancing US and Mex says they are advancing and CU lacras are scared and hiding.

    He "self owns" himselr LMAO as he says

    3. 11:12 PM The majority of the Carteles Unidos Leadership isn't from Michoacan they are from Jalisco, Guerrero, Estado de Mexio, Colima. You are just wolfing. Your family probably comes from Snitchaloa so you think son gallos los snitchaloas.

  20. "On Friday in the city of Morelia, 5 vehicles, 3 gas stations and a department store were set on fire." Not true. In Morelia it was only the five vehicles in separate incidents, scattered throughout the city. No retail stores or gas stations, that was all in Tierra Caliente.
