The Narco-War in Mexicali: Sinaloa Cartel Infighting, Mass Killings, and Cross-Border Killers

"MX" for Borderland Beat

Note to readers: This report uses several articles from the Baja California newspaper Zeta Tijuana that were published in March, April, and May 2021.

The Sinaloa Cartel faction in Mexicali, headed by lieutenants under Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada (far left) are competing against Los Chapitos (second from the left to right), Jesús Alfredo Guzmán Salazar, Ovidio Guzmán López, and Iván Archivaldo Guzmán.

The cell of Los Rusos, commanded by Jesús Alexander Sánchez Félix (alias "El Ruso") and Felipe Eduardo Barajas Lozano (alias "El Omega"), lieutenants under Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada on the border of Baja California and Sonora, are responsible for commanding the narco-war in the Mexicali Valley.

They are in the middle of a territorial war against two other Sinaloa Cartel factions, Los Salazar and Los Chapitos, headed by the sons of former drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo Guzman". In Mexicali, Los Chapitos is headed by Nestor Ernesto Perez Salas ('El Nini'), who receives support from the Sonora-based faction Los Salazar, headed by Crispin Salazar Zamorano.

The border area between Mexicali, Baja California and San Luis Río Colorado, Sonora, has become an oasis for organized crime. Sicarios commit crimes in one state and flee to the other, taking advantage of the lack of communication and the disastrous coordination between the authorities of both states.

The police officers shift responsibility to their counterparts in the neighboring state, while accusing each other of corruption and mafia collusion. In the area, the reaction to high-impact crimes is poor or non-existent, which has allowed the cartels to take possession of roads and rural communities (ejidos), terrorizing ordinary citizens by turning them into witnesses and collateral victims of shootings. murders and kidnappings (levantones).

On the afternoon of Saturday, April 24, this lack of coordination and distancing resulted in an officers from the Baja California State Security and Investigation Guard (GESI) being shot: one officer was injured, as well as a paramedic from who arrived to attend the officers.

All were left in the middle of two shootings in which the local operators of Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada assassinated Jorge Humberto Maya Siqueiros (alias "El Vampiro"), ring leader of Los Salazar.

Intelligence reports from state authorities say that those responsible for the attack worked under El Omega, who ordered the assassination of several subjects in recent weeks as part of a "cleanse of possible rivals in the Mexicali Valley (Valle de Mexicali) and the eastern zone of the city."

In response to these deadly events, the Baja California attorney general Guillermo Ruiz Hernández called a meeting with authorities from both states. Representatives of the three levels of government (municipal, state, and federal) participated, including the Attorney General of Justice of Sonora, Claudia Indira Contreras Córdova. They met to define a work plan to reduce drug-related violence in the area.

The situation has not been ignored by Mexicali's northern neighbor, the United States. US authorities have issued two security alerts due to the rise in drug cartel violence.

They Were After 'El Vampiro'

El Vampiro had a death sentenced looming over him. On the afternoon of Friday, April 23, while he was traveling on his motorcycle with a woman, he was attacked by gunmen who were manning a blue Dodge Journey truck. El Vampiro was crossing the Miguel Aleman Bridge, which connects the municipalities of Mexicali and San Luis Rio Colorado.

The criminals opened fire on El Vampiro, causing injuries to his body. At the crime scene there were also two state agents assigned to protect a prominent businessman who was in the area. Baja California agents were stationed close to the scene and responded to the shootout when they witness it unfold in front of them.

They engaged in a shootout with the suspects criminals. Felipe Valdez, one of the officers involved, was also wounded. Both him and El Vampiro were transferred to hospitals in San Luis Río Colorado.

The attackers fled to Mexicali, but made a U-turn and tried to cross to San Luis Rio Colorado under the bridge. The car got stuck in the sand, so they abandoned it and continued their escape on foot. Baja California and Sonora authorities were unable to find the gunmen.

Wounded, El Vampiro was taken into custody and transferred to San Luis Río Colorado to receive medical attention. The following day, doctors from San Luis considered that it was necessary to take him to the General Hospital of Mexicali so that he could have services that were not available in San Luis. An operation was mounted to carry out his transfer.

Several units of the Municipal Police of San Luis joined the operation and accompanied the white ambulance El Vampiro was in. The custody of the emergency unit extended to the booth dividing Sonora with Baja California. He entered the Baja California terrain without custody. He did not advance more than 100 meters when a Tahoe-type truck and a Honda vehicle began shooting at him.

The driver of the ambulance tried to escape from the aggressors who were chasing them on Federal Highway 2,  but the triggermen continued the pursuit until the main avenue, where gunfire finally reached him and caused him to lose control and stop. 

The sicarios focused their attack on the back of the emergency vehicle. They shot and killed El Vampiro. The body was left in the middle of the two front seats, which showed that El Vampiro tried to escape from the front part of the ambulance.

Paramedic Marcelino Monreal Ayala, 46, was transferred and treated by San Luis authorities. His injuries were critical to the point that local media reports mistakenly said he was dead. This version was later corrected by authorities. No attackers were not found.

Interviewed at different times, Attorney General Guillermo Ruiz Hernández and Mexicali Municipal Secretary of Security and Citizen Protection, Alejandro Lora Torres, agreed that they were unaware that the transfer posed serious risks. 

Investigators established that the two vehicles that perpetrated the crime were following the police convoy from Sonora and only waited for the moment to carry out the attack once the ambulance made it into Baja California without custody.

In fact, the investigators in Baja California expressed suspicions regarding the operation because they were not warned of the transfer and the attack occurred immediately after the ambulance crossed from Sonora to Baja California.

El Vampiro had no charges against him, but the intelligence reports had identified him as allegedly responsible for several homicides, mainly in San Luis Río Colorado, where he was linked to the December 2019 murders of agents Raúl Ramos and Ricardo Castro.

Two years ago, he was linked to José Eduardo Pérez Jiménez alias “El Charal”, a hitman belonging to the cell of Vicente Martínez González “El Guilo”. Both were exiled from Mexicali after the murder of municipal agent Ignacio Villagómez Robles, perpetrated in April 2019.

Jose Eduardo Perez Jimenez, alias "El Charal" (left) and Vicente Martinez Gonzalez, alias "El Guilo" (right)

In that year, the various state corporations focused their attention on "El Guilo", so they fled the state and took refuge in Aguascalientes, while "El Charal" and "El Vampiro" sought refuge in San Luis Río Colorado. They continued to operate with criminal cells of the Sinaloa Cartel under Los Salazar, mainly committing homicides in the area.

In Mexicali, El Vampiro was also reportedly involved in armed robberies. In 2017, his name came to light after a triple homicide was committed at a home in Ciudad Morelos, in the Mexicali Valley, where an armed group murdered three people. Only two victims were identified: Alberto Rodríguez Martínez and Cristina Padilla Chávez.

The murderers had been instructed to also kill El Vampiro, who was in the house. However, he heard the gunmen when they arrived and hid in the closet. According to authorities, the attack was in revenge because they had robbed a person involved with a local cartel.

A week after evading the homicide, El Vampiro was arrested for violent theft of a vehicle. Once he was released, he became a murderer at the hands of El Charal.

In Mexicali, the authorities presume that he participated in the murder of the former San Luis Río Colorado policeman, Marco Polo Márquez Tamayo, killed in May 2020. His 3-year-old boy was also murdered.

Márquez Tamayo had been threatened by Los Salazar, and as a result of this incident, El Vampiro was linked to this criminal group.

'El Omega', The Mastermind of the Homicide

As part of Los Rusos, Felipe Eduardo Barajas Lozano, alias "El Omega" is the main suspect in the crime perpetrated against El Vampiro.

The criminal group headed by "El Omega" is based in Sonora, but they have been the authors of several attacks and murders in the southern area of ​​the Mexicali Valley during the months of March and April. According to reports from the authorities, in recent weeks the cell withdrew its forces to fight in the Mexicali Valley and "clean up" the area  by killing rivals.

Felipe Eduardo Barajas Lozano, alias "El Omega"

At the same time, Los Salazar intensified their actions to enter Baja California. Investigators said that they increased efforts in Tijuana and decreased their advancement in Mexicali.

The intention of the operators of "El Mayo" in assassinating "El Vampiro" was to kill off rival gang members. As part of this criminal mission, previously, on April 8, Jesus Ramon Velázquez Contreras, known as "El H", was assassinated in the Puebla Valley.

Velazquez Contreras was the brother of an agent of the Municipal Police of Mexicali known as "El 50", who died - apparently - by suicide. The agent was singled out and investigated for supplying narcotics inside bars and nightclubs in Mexicali.

El H had a close relationship with Miguel Ángel Beltrán Munguía, alias "El Indio", a lieutenant of the Sinaloa Cartel assassinated in January 2021, as reported by Borderland Beat. On that occasion the authorities also pointed to El Omega, with whom the victim had clashed for an alleged drug theft deal.

For years, El Indio was the middle-man between the high-level lieutenants of the Sinaloa Cartel in the area, but after his conflicts with El Omega and El Ruso, he was assassinated.

On the day of his death, cartel members also kileld two people in Ejido Sinaloa and Ciudad Morelos, in the Mexicali Valley. In both cases, El Omega's alias shined as the main suspect. A white Volkswagen Jetta vehicle was clearly identified in at least two of the crimes.

Authorities carried out arrests against Los Salazar in recent days. on April 26, they arrested Raúl Aguilera Sepúlveda (alias "El Tortas"), who tried to escape to San Luis Río Colorado during his arrest. But, unlike on other occasions, law enforcement communication flowed and they managed to stop him a few streets after crossing the booth.

Identified as a member of a rival group of El Omega, Aguilera Sepulveda was arrested on an illegal possession of military-exclusive firearm charge.

"El Zabe", Competing for the Mexicali Valley

The control of El Omega in the Mexicali Valley spread rapidly under the backing of El Ruso, who relegated other cartel bosses like Vicente Martínez González (alias "El Guilo") and the criminal cell of Los Garibay, the latter headed by Manuel Garibay Espinoza (alias "Don Manuel") and his nephew Luis Alfredo Garibay Félix (alias "El Wicho").

From Sonoyta, Eduardo Molina Flores (alias "El Zabe", "El Zevas", and/or "El Sabino"), is the head of Los Salazar's hitmen, who, in alliance with Los Garibay, face "El Ruso" and "El Omega" in the Mexicali Valley.

Eduardo Molina Flores, alias "El Zabe"

Originally from Aguaprieta, Sonora and a former municipal agent of that community, he was recruited by Los Salazar to fight for the plaza. "El Zabe" is in charge of collecting drug dealing and extortion fees, and ordering killings from Sonoyta to San Luis Río Colorado, Sonora.

El Zabe was head of regional boss (jefe de plaza) in Huatabampo, Sonora, a community located 345 kilometers south of Hermosillo, Sonora. He was arrested in 2012 by the Mexican Army at a military checkpoint located on the highway between Ciudad Obregón and Benito Juárez in Sonora. At that time, he was already wanted for three murders committed against two policemen identified as Trinidad Guadalupe Montiel Jiménez and Jesús Horacio Pacheco Moroyoqui; and a communicator named Pablo Aurelio Ruelas Barraza, all perpetrated in 2011.

El Zabe regained his freedom and was sent by Los Salazars to Sonoyta. At his command are two individuals identified by the nicknames "El Oakland" and "El Joker Marcelo". Investigators in Baja California consider that it was precisely the armed group of "El Oakland" that entered the southern part of the Mexicali Valley to commit the murders mentioned above.

"El Wicho", "El Rene" and "El Many", Identified

Luis Alfredo Garibay Félix (alias "El Wicho") and René Ledezma Jáuregui, are two members of the Los Garibay cell, are believed to be responsible for the crime that occurred on February 23, 2021, when Enrique Martínez Camacho was attacked at a home in Ejido Chiapas I along with his wife Araceli Muñoz Aguilera. Three of the victim's siblings, Alonso, Aarón and Ángel, were reportedly kidnapped and have not been found.

Manuel Garibay Espinoza ('Don Manuel', left) and Luis Alfredo Garibay Felix ('El Wicho', right) are the two leaders of Los Garibay. They were arrested in 2010 and 2018, respectively, but both were released.

Afer the killing, they fled to Ejido Colima to assassinate José Fidencio Granados; his son, named José Yael, aged 6, was injured. The central prosecutor of Baja California, Hiram Sánchez Zamora, commented that arrest warrants were issued for these criminal acts, but he did not specify names or how many were implicated.

However, reporters managed to verify that two warrants were issued against El Wicho and Ledezma Jáuregui, leaving one more pending against El Many, who has only been identified by nickname.

Investigators believe that El Zabe cannot undertake a direct campaign to take control of the turf, especially because he is not from the area and his center of operations is far from Mexicali. That is why they sought support from Los Garibay.

Los Garibay initially tried to frame El Omega's faction for the mass killing in an effort to heat up their turf (calentar la plaza). 

Both El Wicho and Ledezma Jauregui fled Sonora and it is presumed that they could be hiding in Sinaloa or Durango with the intention of "cooling off" law enforcement efforts against them.

Days later, El Omega's faction kidnapped David Jimenez Herrera (alias "El Bicholo"), who worked for Los Garibay. It is presumed that El Omega ordered the kidnapping in response to Los Garibay's killings in the area.

"El P1" and/or "Ponchito de la Lima"

As a measure to contain the advancement of Los Salazar, El Ruso requested the support of one of his most trusted armed men to reinforce operations in and around Mexicali.

The rise in kidnappings and murders can also be attributed to the arrival of this man.

He is nicknamed "El P1" or "El Ponchito de la Lima". His real name has not been fully verified. Sources say it could be Alfonso Peralta or Alfonso Amaya.

"El P1" and/or "Ponchito de la Lima"

So far, investigating authorities have not been able to specifically identify this character despite the fact that he has been working in El Ruso's criminal structure for many years.

Narcorridos (drug ballads) say that Ponchito was part of the "school" of Gonzalo Inzunza Inzunza (alias "Macho Prieto"), who reportedly died in a shooting in Puerto Penasco, Sonora in 2013. His body was never recovered.

Conclusion

As reported by Borderland Beat, the Sinaloa Cartel moved drugs through Baja California without much problem for many years. But Los Chapitos began to make their own decisions without approval from other factions in 2016, after the last recapture of their father.

In 2019, they fought against cells of El Mayo in parts of Sinaloa, causing greater friction within the cartel. Such confrontations escalated in 2020 and in 2021.

  1. This conflict is good news for CJNG. As long as the Sinaloa’s are busy fighting each other CJNG can launch a full offensive to destroy the last remaining cells of CDS left in Jalisco which are huddled in Teocaltiche. After that, I assume they will launch an offensive to eliminate what’s left of CDS in Aguascalientes and after that they can focus more men in Zacatecas. Although there are still cells of Marros people’s in Celaya and neighboring municipalities the conflict in GTO is pretty much in the bag for CJNG. These upcoming elections in June will show if CJNG will launch a big push in Michoacán or not. Mencho needs to wrap up the war in Michoacán, he’s wasting too much money, men, and blindadas which can be used in Aguascalientes, Zacatecas, and San Luis Potosí. If CJNG gets the candidates that it wants elected into office I expect a big push in Aguascalientes, Michoacán,, and San Luis Potosí which will lead to the big war against Mayo in Zacatecas.

    9. One would think that an incursion from jalisca would unite chinolas against them. In the us prisons you’ll sometimes see chicanos beef paisas but come together if some pleitos with a different race pop off. Like that old Arab saying. I, against my brothers. ... I and my brothers and my cousins against the world. Doesn’t seem to be like that in mex though. Maybe too much bad blood between the chinolas to unite against a different cartel

    11. @3:04PM You are right that FM is powerful in Guerrero. But the thing about FM/Carteles Unidos/Viagras is that they mostly make money out of extortion of people and taxation of businesses. They make money shipping meth and coke into the USA, but only a tiny fraction of what CJNG/CDS send to the USA, not to mention CJNG/CDS send product to Europe/Australia/NZ/Canada. The arrest of Fruto Comparan in Guatemala and the arrest of Abuelos people in Atlanta was a huge blow to CU. Word on the street is that Abuelo/CU can no longer pay the monthly payment to the Guardia Nacional and officials in Michoacán, that’s why this time around the Michoacán government didn’t attempt to take CJNG out of Agulilla. Like I said, if CJNG gets it’s politicians into office, the balance of power in Michoacán and Guerrero would literally flip overnight. Once the government in Michoacán and Guerrero stop supporting CU/FM it’s pretty much over for them. The only reason Viagras launched their invasion of Aguililla is because CJNG conquered Zirandaro, which is the birthplace of the leaders of the Viagras. They wanted to even the score with Mencho, but ultimately it failed. Aguililla is now a CJNG bastion. What remains of Carteles Unidos in Aguililla are getting wiped out. Just today soldiers in Aguililla arrested 9 sicarios from Los Revueltas, further proof that the government is no longer favoring Carteles Unidos. Their propaganda war against CJNG backfired badly. They brought international attention to Aguililla to try and paint CJNG as terrorists but only exposed themselves. Everyone that called Carteles Unidos “Autodefensas of civilians that defend themselves against CJNG” now know the truth. The destruction of the roads and drones with explosives is now widely known to be the work of Carteles Unidos. No denying the truth anymore.

    12. @1:29PM I think CDS will continue to dominate Baja California, whether that’s under Chapitos or Mayo that is still to be seen. The advantage of CDS in the north of the country is not just political influence, but geography. It’s easier for CDS to dispatch gunmen to Baja California faster than it is for CJNG. Plus CDS gunmen in the region are locals that know the region. That’s why I believe CJNG will win in Zacatecas. CJNG absorbed the CDG’s cells. Zacatecas has always been a CDG bastion. Making them CJNG provides CJNG with gunmen with knowledge of the terrain and who to go after. If Mayo absorbed CDG cells instead of other groups, I would say he would win. But CJNG hit the jackpot by making deals with the CDG plaza bosses. I think Mencho will conquer Michoacán, Aguascalientes, and San Luis Potosí within the next 3-4 years. Michoacán will be the toughest, due to the government protection of Carteles Unidos, but CU are weak. If abuelo or the leaders in Los Reyes fall, that’s pretty much ball game. In Aguascalientes CJNG is mopping up what remains of the CDS cells. And with the fall of Vaquero, the war in San Luis Potosí will be easier for Sapo 090. I would add Guerrero to the list, but Mencho agreed to the truce that El Pez and Fresa offered him. That’s why Jardinero is in Zacatecas fighting Mayos people. CJNG was winning in Guerrero but FM had the army in its pocket, Guerrero was basically a huge Aguililla for CJNG. They would of eventually won, like they did in Aguililla, but it would have taken lots of money, men, and blindadas. CJNG decided to consolidate the territory they took and accepted the truce so that they can move against Mayo in Zacatecas. The reason for the war against Mayo is because Mayo is the one funding the CDS cells that remain in Aguascalientes, and Teocaltiche, Jalisco. He was also the one funding Cholo. If CJNG manages to exterminate the remaining CDS cells in those regions, CJNG would no longer be fighting inside Jalisco. They would push outward big time. That’s why CJNG has so much hate for Mayo. Without Mayo’s interference, Jalisco, Colima, Nayarit, and Aguascalientes would be 100% under CJNG control. Real life isn’t a video game where you can locate an enemy and kill them like that. Even though what remains of CDS in those states is small, it still takes time for CJNG to locate them and exterminate them. But I expect for CJNG to make huge gains in the coming 3-4 years. Marró getting arrrsted, Cholo getting killed, and Fruto Comparan of Carteles Unidos getting arrested was a huge boost to CJNG. Little by little CJNG is advancing. Only time will tell what will happen.

I'm sure that you never heard of Teocaltiche until the recent events which took place there. Don't act like you know what's going on.

    15. CDS been in teocaltiche for a long time. They been fighting out lacras before los Z were around. Remember jalisco was CDS but los torcidos traicionaron al patron. Zacatecas was full of Z but most got took out the game and the rest turned CDG. The only reason jaliscos are there is because local cells flipped again and turnd cjng. CDS taking them out the game left and right because durango don't need kidnappings and extortion . Durango is to close and they don't want it to heat up. In Nayarit los flechas cleaning up. CDS is in every state in Mexico but not all cell are out there Caravaniados rolling deep. There business men and heavy hitters that don't make noise only work up north. That's the difference between the 2 groups. CDS mane objective is to traffic work across border. Keep plazas cool so the money flows. On the other hand cjng trade mark is extortion kidnappings violence they want everybody to no que son malandos. That's why they chop people up to try and scare the local civilians. Pura tactica zeta de lacra de marranos. That's why they partner up with la Linea. Son tal pa Cual

    3. @11:17 It has proven to be strong enough. Two dominant clans are fighting in CDS, Mayos and Chapos operatives, that's it. Outside of that conflict each plaza has their shit organized locally so it's not much of a big change. Pockets are deep in both sides to keep the soldados going and CJNG won't pass to the north, ever.

      Whoever ends up with the upper hand from Mayo or Chapitos will determine who will most of their sicarios gonn fall in line with and it will continue to be business as usual.

    5. You guys think of CDS as just one big organization when in reality it is just a lose federation. Mayo and chapitos pretty much run their own cartels but fly the same flag. Mexicali belonged to CAF then Mayo came in and took it in the early 2000s and has held it since. Checo 6 was the main man but now he is either dead or retired and he was appointed by Mayo and backed by macho prieto. Operation money train exposed the network back in 08 if I recall correctly and it went down because of a traffic stop in El Centro. The driver of the vehicle was acting extremely nervous and his phone kept going off. Later on the phone was checked and the contacts it had gave the feds a major case. All because of a minor traffic stop. Then let's not forget the tourist busses smuggling operation and the tunnels.

    4. Transito Federal Rafael el Chino Chao from mexicali became a federal judicial cuico and was a gofer for RCQ, bit came back home to keep his crimes up, who are his heirs?

    5. La Familia Chao sige en mexicali I actually went to school with one of his grand daughters.

      Delete
    6. @12:01 Para empezar el comandante Chao no se llevaba bien con Caro por que era maleducado y faramalloso, no hable de lo que no sabe.

      Los que le hacían los mandados a la DFS y al PRI eran esos del cártel de GDL y por eso los entambaron sin hacer ruido. El único chingón de todos esos era Don Juan, El Azul, razón por la cuál continuó su reino en silencio.

      Póngase las pilas.

  8. And to think the CDS fans swore the sinaloenses didnt have problems within they're organization? Goes to show how much those fans really know.

    1. Hi there. No reliable outlets have reported it yet. I saw it on social media and in some blogs, but nothing official yet.

      I'm looking at a murder committed on Saturday night in Phoenix (35th Avenue and Camelback Road), which I believe is the one some people are claiming it was him.

      We continue to monitor. I'll look into it in more detail tonight and tomorrow. Let me know if you find anything. Thank you!

  22. This proves CDS doesn’t give a rats ass about CJNG. They don’t need to unite to fight CJNG. Mencho out here begging for help like the bum that he is. CJNG knocking on doors like Jehovah’s whiteness begging for help.

    1. 9:22 the whiteness do not ask for help, they only want your soul to get your ass on earth, 10% at a time all the time, other communist cults want everything all at once, or at least an insurrection once in a while like Florida in 2000 or the Capitol in 2021...
