Meeting of CJNG Leaders "El RR" & "El Apa" Resulted in the Narco Blockades in Jalisco & Guanajuato

"Socalj" for Borderland Beat

Dozens of narco-blockades and attacks on stores occurred following the breakup of a meeting between CJNG leaders by Sedena soldiers.


As reported by "El Huaso" for Borderland Beat, CJNG burned stores, and vehicles creating blockades after a military operation against high-ranking leaders took place. Now more details have emerged about the operation and aftermath of the violence in Jalisco and Guanajuato.

Regional leaders of the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel (CJNG) that allegedly met on Tuesday intended to record a video with a large group of its members. Until they were surprised by federal authorities, Upon being identified, the criminal leaders clashed with the military in Ixtlahuacán del Río, north of the Guadalajara Metropolitan Area.

The meeting took place at a ranch located on the border between Cuquío and Ixtlahuacán del Río, government sources reported. However, personnel from the Ministry of National Defense found out. With the recording, the sources believe, they wanted to spread a message that characterizes the CJNG and that has already been made public on other occasions, in which its members appear heavily armed.

When they found out, the troops organized an inspection operation, without making it known to the local authorities, and they went to the area suspected. The suspicions turned out to be true, later confirmed by a flyover of the area; then came the confrontation with the Army that led to the attacks in Zapopan.

Cresencio Sandoval explained that reports of the presence of vans with armed people in Ixtlahuacán had reached the military and when elements of the Army arrived in the area to corroborate, various confrontations occurred. Due to a large number of criminals, the armed forces requested reinforcements, more soldiers and a National Guard helicopter arrived, who repelled the attacks, resulting in a deceased alleged criminal.



The criminals and other members of the CJNG then carried out six blockades in the Guadalajara metropolitan area with a balance of 14 cars and a business set on fire with 5 arrests. Meanwhile, in Guanajuato, 11 detainees were reported, 6 blockades and 29 businesses burned, including 25 Oxxo stores.

The Prosecutor's Office and the Security Secretariat of Jalisco reported that the drug attacks resulted in a woman and a worker killed, while a hit man was killed.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced that the Secretary of National Defense (Sedena) informed him that the violent acts in Jalisco were due to the presence of armed people in the Ixtlahuacán del Río area: it was a meeting of Ricardo Ruiz Velasco, alias El Doble R with another member of organized crime, identified as Gerardo González Ramírez, alias El Apá.

The head of Sedena, Luis Cresencio Sandoval, indicated that neither Ruiz Velasco nor González Ramírez were among the 16 people detained for the events of Tuesday, in addition to the fact that their names do not appear in the National Detention Registry System (RND).


Statements from AMLO & Sedena

The Secretary of Defense intervened and also the police from Jalisco and Guanajuato because, apparently, there was a meeting, a meeting of two gangs, and the Secretary of Defense arrived. Defense, elements from the Ministry of Defense arrived and there was a confrontation, and there were arrests.

This was what caused the protests, the burning of vehicles, not only in Jalisco but also in Guanajuato.

There are already detainees in both Jalisco and Guanajuato, of those who were at the meeting.

Apparently, yes, group leaders, because there was that very strong reaction, and the burning of vehicles and I think that of Oxxos.

Also continuing with the theme of the event that arose from Ixtlahuacán, in Jalisco, this also had a collateral impact in Guanajuato, in different municipalities: in Celaya, in San Francisco del Rincón, Silao, Irapuato and León.

And that same day 11 people were arrested and made available to the Public Ministry, who were driving in vehicles and motorcycles, who possessed weapons, magazines, and bullets, and they were also assured of gasoline bottles, with which they perpetrated the fires in these places. 

There are already 11 detainees who, added to the five from Jalisco, imply that 16 people were detained for these events to date, who are already at the disposal of the corresponding Public Ministry.


Ricardo Ruiz Velasco, alias El Doble R.

Background on "El RR"

Ricardo Ruiz Velasco, alias El Doble R, who also goes by the alias El Tripa, is a lieutenant of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) and, according to Sedena, worked under the command of Juan Carlos González, El 03, founder of the Grupo Elite of the CJNG. 

Ricardo Ruiz Velasco began his criminal career in Michoacán and later had a presence in Guanajuato and Zacatecas. His appearance in propagandistic videos for the CJNG cartel has earned him several narco corridos that tell part of his criminal history.

Several narco video messages from CJNG's Grupo Elite have been said to originate from "El Doble R".



It is presumed that "El Mencho's YouTuber" has been allegedly responsible for at least 100 homicides perpetrated in various states of the country, according to intelligence reports. And it is among his victims are minors, government officials, models, and rival hitmen.


Secretary of Tourism of Jalisco, José de Jesús Gallegos Álvarez, assassinated in 2013.

One of the most notorious cases was his alleged participation in the murder of the then Secretary of Tourism of Jalisco, José de Jesús Gallegos Álvarez, reported in March 2013, when he was on his way home on Acueducto Avenue but was intercepted by a group of assassins, who killed him.


17-year-old Juan Luis Lagunas Rosales was killed for insulting El Mencho on social media.

Another of his fatal victims would have been the young Juan Luis Lagunas Rosales, better known as "El Pirata de Cuiliacán", who had gained fame on social networks for vlogging his participation in the world of drug trafficking. He was filmed insulting one of the most wanted drug lords in Mexico: Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, alias El Mencho. The death of the 17-year-old was reported in December 2017 in a bar in Zapopan, Jalisco, at the hands of an armed commando. El Doble R is investigated for this murder.

Local media reported that Ruiz Velasco had been arrested in Aguascalientes in December 2014 by elements of the State Police, he had nine arrest warrants against him. However, hours later he was released.

"El Apa" was the other CJNG leader said to have been at the meeting that resulted in violence across two states.

Background on "El Apa"

Less is known about Gerardo González Ramírez, alias "El Gera", "El Güero" or "El Apa". In May, 20222 the Attorney General's Office offers a reward of 500,000 pesos to anyone who provides information on the alleged leader of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel within the limits of Zacatecas and Jalisco. 


The reward released by the FGR details that this subject is likely responsible for criminal acts in the municipalities of Nochistlán, Apulco, and Jalpa Zacatecas, as well as in Yahualica de González Gallo in the state of Jalisco.

El Gera/El Apa leads a group of assassins who have caused terror in various communities, stripping people of their homes, and causing hundreds of families to flee leaving everything behind. He is also attributed to kidnappings and homicides, in addition to being identified as the leader of the criminal cell that has clashed on several occasions with rival groups and federal forces.


CJNG members seized vehicles including cars, trucks, and buses, setting them on fire to create blockades surrounding Zapopan, Jalisco.

Narco Blockades in Jalisco

Shortly after the initial confrontation, various members of organized crime set fire to vehicles and set up narco blockades in the outskirts of Zapopan, more than 50 kilometers from Ixtlahuacán: vehicles were burned in the San Isidro, Mesa Colorada, and Paso de Guadalupe neighborhoods, located on the highway to Saltillo, at the entrance to the Metropolitan Area of ​​Guadalajara, as well as on the Camino a Valle de San Isidro.

 

The narco blockades covered the area near San Francisco de Ixcatán and El Tempisque. There, armed men stripped several drivers of their vehicles and set them on fire, in order to prevent the security forces from approaching Zapopan, where several leaders of the CJNG live showing that the protection covered more than 50 kilometers in that region.

In total, they burned 19 vehicles, including four trucks, and a self-service store. They also threw nails and "punch tires" to prevent traffic. At the scene of the arrests, a "narco monster" was seized - a modified van armored by hand - in addition to nine other vehicles, some 30 long weapons, machine guns, and explosives. Two civilians were killed during the attacks.

Violence in Guanajato

Simultaneously, Guanajuato began to burn. At 8:30 at night, authorities received a report that an Oxxo in Celaya, almost 300 kilometers away, had been attacked with Molotov cocktails. According to witnesses, shots had been heard and, shortly after, an explosion.

A few minutes later, madness broke out in Irapuato. Reports began to arrive of burned Oxxos in the Arcos de Guanajuato, Españita, La Pradera, Los Presidentes and Ciudad de Los Olivos neighborhoods. The Oxxos of the Rancho Grande, Bajada de San Martín, San Antonio de Ayala, Independencia, Las Reynas, and Los Fresno neighborhoods also burned.




A video recorded by the assailants themselves shows several armed individuals, wearing camouflage clothing, hats, and tactical vests, entering one of those stores while the screams of a child are heard. They ordered civilians out of the OXXO while firing warning shots and shouting their allegiance to 'El Mencho', the leader of the CJNG.

25 OXXO stores were attacked and set on fire.

According to the company FEMSA, owner of the OXXO convenience stores, 25 stores in that state were set on fire in whole or in part, 20 of them in Irapuato, 300 kilometers east of the site of the initial operation. More than 40 attacks were recorded, 90% of which targeted Oxxo. In Irapuato, where there were 11 detainees, some of them simply stated that they had been ordered to do so.

Guanajuato-based security analyst David Saucedo said the Oxxo stores were apparently chosen because of their ubiquity and light security, rather than because of any dispute with the company. Cartels often create such chaos in an effort to keep authorities from transporting captured cartel bosses or to protest arrests. 

A total of 16 were arrested during the violence in Jalisco and Guanajuato.

Aftermath 

Five were detained in Jalisco and 11 were detained in Guanajuato, linked to the fires. 2 deaths were reported in Jalisco. Several educational institutions, both public and private, decided to suspend classes the following day to avoid more violent acts. The United States consulate in Guadalajara issued a security alert on Tuesday night for its citizens to stay safe and follow the recommendations of the authorities. The order was rescinded the following day. 

Federal sources confirmed that El RR is not among the detainees. And there were no important arrests.

    3. El RR is definitely real. His name has been heard before he hit the media. He made his way from the bottom as a gram dealer to a jefe de plaza/distributor that controls a a larger territory now. He grew up in El Retiro, an extremely poor neighboorhood close to the heart of Guadalajara. Part of mother's family all live in Oblatos. The streets always had rumors and names that I thought were made up stories made by junkies who did too much toncho, perico, then later became loyal to meth. Apparently some stories really are true.

    Lo que me sobra es la gente
    Siempre cargo varios batos
    Patrullando en Guanajuato
    Listos pa pegarse un cierre
    Porque cuidan bien el terre
    De una vez me les presento

    Muchas gracias señor Mencho
    Y con el tres somos equipo
    Traigo el chaleco de malla

    Ni que estuviera pelada
    Madrugarme en la jugada
    Si mando en Guadalajara
    Sigo al frente de mi raza
    A lo que mande la menchada

    Hay que ponerle cuidado
    A la gente que anda a un lado
    Ya lo tengo bien calado
    Por eso soy desconfiado

      It appears to be violence for nothing more than the sake of violence. You would think that the people of Guanajuato have had enough of this violence.

    3. @8:38 Someone once said that nations are great due to the comparative selflessness of their leaders. In other words, politicians of great nations only steal a little. That is why Latin and African countries are not great nations. The politicians steal and take bribes with two-fisted glee. Mexico and the countries of Latin and South America will never be great nations. But Brazil has potential if it acknowledges it's horrible treatment of Black people and seeks to make amends.

  15. Thanks SolCalJ for posting this story. There is a lot of information here.
    I was thinking that Ruiz was number 3 in the CJNG chain. I thought only Rosalinda's son was above him. A lot of people put Jardinero and Rosalinda's son in the the number 2 spot but I'm not fully aware of Jardinero's role in the grander scheme of the CJNG so I'm not ready to put him higher than Ruiz at this point. There's enough publicly available information to say that Jardinero is a significant figure in the CJNG and a part of Mencho's inner circle, so there is a real possibility that he is either in the number 2 or number 3 spot. Both he and Rosalinda's son have $5 million rewards on their heads by the U.S. but I believe Ruiz has no rewards posted by the U.S. I don't know enough Spanish to get the full picture, so obviously my understanding is far more limited than many on Borderlandbeat.
    Anyway, Ruiz is at best number 3 or number 4 in the foodchain and I'm sure there are people who would put him below number 4.
    This guy Apa I've never heard of before. Despite the difficulty following the fragmentation of the cartels, I generally recognize the names of the major players and with the help of google translation have some idea of their roles.
    So we have here a guy Ruiz who I believe is number 3, a lot of people believe is number 3 or 4 and some believe is much lower. One fact that is undeniable is that Ruiz is in Mencho's inner circle. This other guy Apa is unknown to most and is most likely not even in Mencho's inner circle.
    I can understand the violence in Zapopan because Ruiz is in Mencho's inner circle. But the Guanajuato violence makes no sense because this guy Apa has to be relatively low on the food chain.
    There is a possibility that Mencho happened to be in Zapopan meeting with his senior members (I don't believe he's staying in Guadalajara metro. He is most likely in the sticks in either Jalisco or Michoacan. The DEA adds Colima) during these events, but the response would have been stronger if he was in the immediate area. This would only make sense if he was already fleeing and only hijacked a few vehicles to complete his escape.
    The response in Guanajuato was much stronger than in Jalisco. Former Puerto Vallarta plaza boss Gaytan is credited with violence in Guanajuato which led me to believe that he was the focus of the police actions in Guanajuato but his name isn't mentioned.
    There's a limit to the length of this comments on Borderland Beat, so I have to post another comment to finish this comment.

  17. What I believe happened is that SEDENA raided the rancho where the filming was taking place. Ruiz fled in the direction of Zapopan. Authorities approached where they believed that Ruiz was heading so CJNG responded with just enough violence for Ruiz to escape the area and make his way to a third location.
    El Apa was at the rancho either to use his members as props for the video or to discuss other business or both. He fled in the direction of Guanajuato. The strong response suggests that he was actually in Guanajuato. The violence in multiple locations suggests that they were looking for more than one person in Guajuanato.
    The takeaway from this is that the CJNG used a fairly large amount of violence (much lower than when Mencho was almost caught and a helicopter shot down) for one guy who is at most number 3 or 4 on the foodchain and used a higher level of violence in response to at least one person who was much lower on the foodchain.
    The targets here were second and third tier. This is a worrisome development which suggests that the CJNG has increased it's capacity to engage government forces. If Mencho were threatened today, I believe there will be a much stronger response than when the helicopter was shot down. Any threat to capture Mencho could lead to broader regional violence that could lead to several civilian deaths in addition to government and criminal deaths.
    CJNG has gained too much power in the vacuum that has previously existed. I'm not going to get into the debate whether the CJNG or CDS is stronger. Suffice to say, both organizations possess enough firepower to take on the state.
    The CJNG has gained a level of firepower that will be difficult for Mexico to contain and extinquish.
    There is an old military saying that says, "when you protect everything, you protect nothing", and this is what Mexico is doing. It is trying to protect every square inch of it's sovereign territory which has resulted in their forces being spread too thin responding to these various mini-crises that keep arising. Mexico must concentrate it's forces in Jalisco, Colima and Michoacan in order to reduce the CJNG's capacity to wage war with the state. If they fail to do this, CJNG will only become stronger and more diverse and more difficult to deal with in the future.
    I'm not saying that CJNG is stronger than CDS. I am saying that the CJNG is the greater threat to the peace and stability of Mexico and that Mexico must put more resources into reducing the CJNG's capacity or they will be more difficult to fight in the future.

    4. Government would easily smoke cjng or any other cartel if they were to really engage full force,but in this case cjng targeted civilians NOT LAW ENFORCEMENT, doesn't take guts to burn cars or businesses

    8. Great post, you have a lot of interesting insights. Though I would say that the response in Villa Purificacion was smaller because it's a rural area and Mencho most likely doesn't ride around in massive convoys there. Just a thought either way.

    Your input is appreciated by non-Spanish speakers. I believe most followers of BorderlandBeat recognize chargers as magazines. This translation is much better than google translate and much appreciated. This is a good story. We were all left hanging with the violence without firm explanations. We now have a greater understanding of the events. Socalj's posting of the story and anything he added to the translation is greatly appreciated.

  22. I don't see how the United Nations don't consider Cartels terrorists like ISIS.

    I think any group country or individual that finds it necessary to film propoganda of their power by cutting people's heads off and lighting them on fire should be labeled as a terrorists.

    1. Great you brought up United Nations, they are sub-par, very slow and not reliable whatsoever.
      During the crisis of COVID 19, that originated in Wuhan, China they send inspectors weeks later, which gave China time to clean up the lab, and hide all evidence.
      United Nations CEO is run by a French national that is hard to understand, when he talks, Gibberish like SIR.
      Lastly the Ukraine War, Russia has killed many unarmed residents in Ukraine, United Nations is slow to document the war crimes.

      I just cannot figure who elected that man of the United Nations, seems he is the only one allowed to give a speech, your right, he is hard to understand.
      Funny you mentioned he talks like Sir.
      They are supposed to act fast on World issues, there was a time that Trump wanted to get rid of the United Nations.

      It costs money to run the United Nations, Trump when he was president wanted it abolished, since they did a bad job on the China COVID 19 fiasco.
      Thousands died. China tried to put blame, that it came from Italy.

  27. Mexico would be a much better country if they extradited these pieces of shit as soon as they're captured. Instead they give so much leverage to these assholes allowing them to burn down towns until they get their way.

    2. Dont blame the usa because mexico its a shit hole. In the last 12 years mexico has become the worst country in the western world because of corruption and unchecked violence and rampant extorsion. It aint about americans wanting drugs anymore. Its about mexico being on the brink of becoming a full narco state because of its own failures.

    3. 8:57 Hi Mrs Bible Belt...Don’t blame Mexico for your own problems. Control your drug abuse and an endless cash/weapon flow to nourish cartels. Will be an endless problem if the US avoids its part on your side of the border. Instead they lose time and resources blaming the others with useless $olution$.
