Reporter: Zeta Investigations

Just after eight o'clock on the night of January 6, when elements of the Ministry of the Navy made a stop of two vehicles that circulated through the streets of the Costa Dorada neighborhood in San Jose del Cabo, Los Cabos municipality. 
At that time, Navy personnel affirmed:"The Navy was obliged to respond, the citizens were already reporting, because of the ineffectiveness of the intelligence strategy that had been proposed by other corporations;
 the confrontation in Cabo is the result of the pressure and the desire to present immediate results. 
"We had in sight two vehicles, a pick-up double cabin green olive, with plates of the State of California, USA, on board three people were seen of the male sex with tactical vests and long arms, apparently of those known as ' cuerno de chivo or AK 47 ' ; a second gray family van, with plates also from the State of California, you could see four people of the male sex with tactical vests and long weapons ".
It was the initial explanation that the troops gave to their superiors after starting a chase that would become a true massacre by the Marine Corps.

In the Homologated Police Report, the elements reported that they chased the "suspects" for several blocks. They passed colonies like Las Veredas, Buenos Aires, El Zacatal and San José Viejo until arriving at Santa Rosa, through the Trans-peninsular Highway San José del Cabo - Cabo San Lucas.

The first confrontation occurred shortly before reaching the Santa Rosa neighborhood. The Attorney Generals Office of the State (PGJE) justified the Navy personnel in the actions of discharging their firearms:
"The occupants of the Tacoma truck began to fire their weapons against the elements of the Armed Forces, who, to safeguard their own lives and those of others, returned fire, the aggressors who were aboard the Tacoma lost control of the vehicle and drifted across lanes, impacting on a central reservation barrier; two of the crew members of the aggressor vehicle, again fired their weapons against the elements of the Navy, who returned fire. After the exchange of fire, a paramedic unit was immediately notified and who on arrival at the scene confirmed the death of two male people, while another was transferred in critical condition to the hospital, where he later died. "
The chase continued some blocks until arriving at San Antonio and Candelaria, where the assassins descended from the unit and opened fired against elements of the Marines, firing some shots at the Navy vehicle windshield, so that the agents immediately returned fire .
The shooting lasted a few minutes, until the threat was neutralized. On Avenida La Paz they proceeded to the confiscation, packing and chain registration of custody of:
* Three 7.62 × 39 mm long caliber weapons with their respective charger supplied.
* Two magazines supplied with cartridges caliber 7.62 × 39.
* two tactical vests.
* A Toyota Tacoma four-door, olive-green vehicle and license plates 6KFU957 - of State of California. The pick-up was reported stolen from the city of Tijuana, Baja California.
The balance was of two dead at the scene and one wounded that passed away minutes later.
While in San Antonio Street, between Candelaria and Cabo Pulmo, Colonia Santa Rosa, the confiscation of:
* Three caliber weapons .223.
* A .45 caliber pistol.
* A long gun caliber 7.62 × 39.
* A magazine supplied with eleven useful .223 caliber cartridges.
* Two tactical black vests with five magazines supplied with .223 caliber.
* A gray Hyundai wagon , license plates 7XNT832 from the State of California.
The balance of this second confrontation was of four alleged gunmen killed.
"It was confirmed by intelligence agents that the dead assassins were linked to the Sinaloa Cartel or self-styled groups like 'Los Tegoripeños' or 'Los Guzmanes', which represents a significant hit against those organizations, since this was an important shooting and again the Navy came out to repel the aggression when the rest of the corporations had not responded," said an organized crime specialist consulted by ZETA .
Security forces also confirmed that the seven dead assassins were possibly linked to violent events in Baja California Sur, which could mean a decrease in violence, but "it is known that those criminals  are already preparing a counterattack with more gunmen, they have more resources than the authorities, "added the crime expert.
Intelligence forces identified Luis Alfredo Guevara Franco and / or José Guevara as gunman and right hand man of Luis Fernando Villalobos Graciano "El Güero Rumble" or "El Güero Ruffles",a former armed wing of the Damaso Special Forces (FED) sicario.
But this is not new for the authorities, since on September 10, 2016, Guevara was shot in the arms and legs, and ran to take refuge in the roof of a house in De la Carreta and Antonio Wilson González, Fraccionamiento Camino Real in La Paz. That same night  "El Güero Rumble" was arrested.
At the time of this attack, the criminals were traveling aboard a black car and a gray pick-up ; the truck was hit by bullets everywhere and three were wounded on board: Guevara, Josué Omar Ceseña Moyrón and César Castro Castillo, the latter died after receiving medical attention. It should be noted that he was the son of Miriam Castillo González, secretary of the Attorney General's Office (PGR) in Cabo San Lucas.
Luis Fernando Villalobos Graciano "El Güero Ruffles" fled along with a gunman nicknamed "El Danny" for a breach in Camino Real, where they were arrested.
On December 15, 2016 was the second time that the authorities saw Guevara, being captured in the Belisario Domínguez and Sonora streets of the Pueblo Nuevo neighborhood, after leaving the custody of the Center for Social Reintegration (Cereso) of La Paz, Jesús Rosario Chain Cota.
"We think that the officers who saw him that night protected him, and are already under investigation, because if we move against these sicarios, we do not want police on their side," warned the member of the Navy consulted by this Weekly.
The effects of the firefight
"January 6 was crucial for the fight against organized crime, it was a direct thrust to the operation of those criminal cells, which were operating with total impunity and the police forces that sought to attack the cells stopped because of fear, those fears being raised after the escape from prison and the chance that their families might be kidnapped, to that add the agents linked to the group, "said a state policeman, attached to the Mando Unico.
Three days after the collision between the criminal cell and the sailors, there was a first action linked to the shooting of the Santa Rosa colony; the action occurred in Country Mar, five kilometers from where the attack occurred.
"We are considering that these men were looking to return to the safe house to hide and avoid arrest, and we believed that when they shot at their comrades, perhaps they did it to scare them away and avoid being persecuted, but they continued until they obtained the results they have already been mentioned, "the research paper reported.
In the operation it was possible to confiscate:
* A long gun type rifle with magazine supplied.
* Eight metal magazines for AK-47 long gun, caliber 7.62 × 39.
* Seven boxes of useful cartridges 7.62 × 39 and 40 caliber.
* A 9 mm caliber pistol.
* Two bags with apparently marijuana inside.
* A wagon with Anapromex sheet.
* A sedan vehicle with plates from the State of Jalisco.
In La Paz there were also repercussions, but not from the authorities, but from criminal groups. This was confirmed around eight o'clock on the night of Tuesday, January 9, when an armed commando approached the Añiñi and Gómez Farías streets of the Colonia Puesta del Sol, in La Paz.
The commander general of the Cereso de La Paz, Raymundo Magaña Bautista, was executed outside his home; He was lying on the sidewalk.
"The sicarios approached and fired repeatedly, the commander of guards tried to flee from the attackers but was immediately hit by the shots,  the assailants quickly fled and the attending corporations only went to put the yellow tape," said one of the agents of the Ministerial Police that was in the place of the facts.
Everything seems to indicate that since the threat placed in a narcomanta in San José del Cabo after the death of the criminal "Cano Vega", who tried to escape from the medium security prison in that community, it has repercussions; However, "we talk about certain threats that the agent received, we continue to analyze the situation and determine what happened, but I confirm that he is the first private public servant deprived of life this year," the ministerial agent confided.
But the presence and police operations was not enough in La Paz. Only two hours after the incident and a kilometer away, they were even collecting evidence from the previous event, gunmen opened fire on a house located in Sandia and Tecnológico, of the Indeco neighborhood.
"This was practically a blowout and it's just about moving forward with the strategy, let's say that we have already provoked what happened in San José, now we have to get in the way and not let our citizenship be alone," said a Navy operative. .
Specialists in organized crime told ZETA that there is a "very difficult" fight, in which the forces will have to intervene actively and could generate other clashes, especially if the Sinaloa Cartel fights back.
"Another scenario is that the Jalisco New Generation Cartel take advantage of the space and continue with the cleansing of antagonistic groups, this is where we will see the intervention of police forces and they will give us the panorama, if we will have to see a readjustment and complicity, or once and for all the security forces concentrated in the Public Safety Coordination Group do their job and end up with what has done a lot of damage to our State, "the expert in organized crime concluded.
More risk to travel and peace in Cabos: United States
The US Department of State presented what it considers "a series of improvements" to the information that is issued to North American travelers; in other words, it made a reclassification of the alerts it issues, going from a general alert to specifying the degree of danger in each locality of the country.
He divided it into four levels, which are described below:
Level 1. Take normal precautions. This is the lowest recommendation level for security risks.
Level 2. Take more precautions. The existence of greater risks for safety and protection must be considered.
Level 3. Reconsider the trip. Travel should be avoided due to serious risks to safety and protection.
Level 4. Do not travel. This is the highest level of recommendation due to the higher probability of life risks.
In comparison with those that were normally issued, for example in August of 2017, the alert contemplated verbatim:
Baja California Sur (including Cabo San Lucas and La Paz): "Be cautious in the State Capital in La Paz. Baja California Sur continues to experience a high homicide rate. Many of these have been executed in La Paz, where there have been public acts of violence between rival criminal organizations. "
The above "left the alert open to tourists and could be interpreted in many ways, the main one, damaging the tourist destinations, especially in some cases they stopped their co-nationals who wanted to visit certain tourist destinations", said Fabricio, dedicated to the provision of tourist services.
With the reclassification four levels of dangerousness are established, placing Baja California Sur in Level 2, of exercise of greater caution.
The reclassification for Baja California Sur establishes the following:
"Exercise increased caution due to crime. Criminal activity and violence, including homicide, continue to be a problem throughout the State. According to statistics from the Government of Mexico, the State experienced an increase in homicide rates compared to the same period in 2016. "
However, despite the classification and specification of what happens with violence, he says: "There are no governmental restrictions of the United States to travel in Baja California Sur, which includes the tourist areas of Cabo San Lucas, San José del Cabo. and the peace".
With 728 people killed in the style of organized crime in 2017 and a violent start in 2018, Baja California Sur is not found in the states at risk to visitors. On the contrary, the North American government requests not to travel to:
* Colima, except for Manzanillo.
* Guerrero, including Acapulco.
* Michoacán, except Morelia and Lázaro Cárdenas.
* Sinaloa, with special restrictions to Mazatlan, in the Golden Zone, the Historical Center and direct routes to the airport or the port terminal; in Los Mochis and Topolobampo, within the city and the port, as well as the routes to the airport.
* Tamaulipas, a large part of the territory with restricted movement and curfew between midnight and six in the morning.
While the strongest dispute have been in La Paz and Los Cabos, in Comondú the tranquility has been lost little by little. The citizens themselves are afraid to go out into the streets and witness a shootout, as the main signs of the upsurge in violence were experienced at the end of 2017 and now in 2018.
"The situation on the ground, from the homicide at the end of December, of a man in the Colonia Centro de Constitución, who was identified as having the nickname of 'El Misa', apparently a municipal policeman, is very difficult; that was the reflection that something strong was coming for this area. It seemed that they ignored it, but little by little it has risen in tone in the zone, affirmed the agent of the Mixed Command with operations in La Paz.
The destabilization and confrontation between the cells of Jalisco and Sinaloa, pointed to a new struggle for the square, especially in the fight against those established in Comondú.
At midday on January 4, a white Raptor- type truck was chased until it crashed, in Francisco I Madero and Gustavo Díaz Ordaz streets in the Pueblo Nuevo neighborhood. The attack was directed against José Rene "N", alias "El Pirri", between 25 and 30 years old, who worked as secretary of the Rehabilitation Center known as "Nuevos Soldados". He was accompanied by three people, who were injured in the event.
Four days later, Adolfo Osuna González "El Ganso", 45, was also killed, also the son of the former PAN deputy and current undersecretary of the Legislative Liaison of the State Government, Adela González Moreno.
The homicide of the "Ganso" occurred on the evening of Monday, January 8, on Agustin Olachea Avilés Boulevard, between Corregidora de Querétaro and Agustín Melgar, in the parking lot of Bodega Aurrerá ; the manner of the attack caused consternation in the community and immediately there were mounted operations in the search for the assassins.
The inter-institutional operation has focused on the review of suspects, as well as various operations and tours in the streets of Ciudad Constitución and Insurgentes mainly, but at the end of this edition there were results on these homicides.
After the events, inmates of the rehabilitation center that have left the premises, fear being attacked by gunmen. Meanwhile, the citizens have resented the narco-war as well as in Bahía Tortugas, a community north of BCS, where the reports of armed hit men in the streets has not succeeded in getting the authorities to respond.


  1. Should not arrest, just put down. Too much catch and release, by the courts.

    1. Excellent idea..lets put an end to this crap game

  2. Cds were starting to push up on Cjng in baja but now it seems they taken two steps back.

    1. CJNG is not in La Paz or Cabo, they were cleaning up Damasos cell

    2. 7:20 Cjng is deep in la paz ton to, matter of fact cjng has alot of cds guys who switch to cjng, El mayos people. Stop misinforming people. These cds guys always talk out their nalgas, no facts what so ever. There was a story here a few months back, cds was going after the chapulines who switched and the now cjng was going after the cds. FACTS

    3. Facts? Must be why I’m down In Cabo relaxing, CJNG sure is deep down here

    4. 859 that info you got was false, just rumors. Stop spreading your blog del Narco bs on here

    5. @8:59 CDS nutthuggers talk out of their nalgas for many reasons that should not make you upset. First of all to make idiots believe that they are always on top hence recruit more people. Second to piss other people off. Lastly CDS fans are like nine year old girls at a One Direction concert. They simply love to love what cartel they assume everyone else does. You simpply cannot make them change their minds.

    6. Thanks. 8:59. I was thinking your post was a bunch of BS, but putting FACTS at the end of your post really comforted me!!! Thanks so much!!

    7. 1:54 one direction? Really?
      Only brokeback perverts would know about that cbildren's show, getatta here and seek help before they come and put your stinking ass in prison and send you back to Guatermala.

    8. @3:55 your insult sort of just collapsed on it self there because you said that you know it's a children's show which you knew about it while stating that only brokeback perverts know about. Hmm

  3. Population control, supply ALL the cartels and let them kill each other in Mexico while they deal drugs in U,S that kills many more. That's my theory anyway

    1. I totally agree with you. The problem is that they don’t kill each other fast enough.

    2. I agree to many bad Hombres. Let them take each other out

    3. And it’s only going to get worse!
      Political experts and reports indicate the fragile state Mexico is in. Where democracy is in jeopardy by Political elements of corruption and Narco interests
      Sad situation with little disregard to its citizens.


    4. Problem is they are not taking only each others out, they kill too many innocents too.

    5. Somebody just needs to start a revolution....

    6. 5:56 the Mexican government started defending from a so called "revolution" since Carlos Salinas de Gortari got more than 500 PRD campaign volunteers AND STILL HAD TO STEAL THE ELECTION BY TRIPPING THE INSTITUTO NACIONAL DE ELECCIONES computer system now called elegantly "the System Crash".
      The mexicans have paid dearly for their revolution they never had a chance to start, and it is getting worse, the MORENAS keep getting murdered all over the country.

  4. Guzmanes having a hard now that cjng stepped in la paz.

  5. Nasty. All kinds of makes having sex from the sound of things. I like how we threw the reminder from the state department not to travel to Mexico in this article too.

    1. 6:30 nasty? Sex?
      Imagine your parents making you and come down back to your convent, the preacher has a position for you...

  6. Wow what a beautiful country we have.

  7. My beautiful Mexico where we can smell a fresh kill every day.

  8. WOW! So many persecutions of ambushers that result in their executions, now including prison and rehabilitation center commanders and crooked kids of narcopoliticians, now wait until the cartel DE Frankenstein and La Mano Pachona cartel get involved in ambushes against the Mando Unico and the marinas, assisting in the takeover of police functions on the BCs.
    --We are supposed to eat this raw tripe stew of campaign of attacks on the pinches marinas? No way josé.

  9. El Compa Lalo still in control, con Los Cuates. Just a few hitmen down, can you believe a town in The Sierras like Tegoripa with less than 300 Civilians Control Cabo and La Paz. That’s how you know Sinaloans can fight

    1. S inaloas been getting their ads kicked by cjng boy

    2. We are now in 2018, maybe a few decades ago.

    3. Sure they Have;) must be why Cabo is still under CDS control under Lalo and the cuates since late 2015

    4. Incorrect 9:01 cjng is pretty much done in the baja peninsula with the exception of tweakers in ensenada and TJ. Domt loe to these people

  10. War has been declared, now it is just more evident. Comondú , especially Ciudad Constitution, has been really bad for a long time, it just doesn’t make the news. It’s also a big Ag town, which is really unfortunate for a lot of hard working people that have to do business there. Notoriously horrible judiciales too. A lot of drugs move across the peninsula in that area and then right back out to sea at Puerto San Carlos.

  11. So who is terogripenos and Guzmanes??

  12. So who is terogripenos and Guzmanes??

    1. Teggoripenos are men from Tegoripa Sinaloa at the services of The Chapos

  13. Can you blame the local police not getting involved ? The sicarios know exactly where they all live and they will kill everything that walks no doubt.We can rage at police all we want but the sicarios roll up and the police get super soaked and no one gives a fuck,its a wonder they get new recruits?

  14. It boils down to CJNG trying to take over BCS. As I've said before, this election will determine the winner of this war. If Mayo gets his guy, then he will have the military dismantle CJNG, and the Chapitos, and Mayitos will take the helm. Vicente will be back next year. But if Mencho can get his guy, game over for CDS. That's what it will boil down to. The old man still has huge pull, but Mencho has money and fear on his side. Gonna be a bloody year. Deals are being made.

    1. I have to agree with you 100% like that you don't cheerlead a sirtain cbarrel but speak the truth

    2. It’s nuts how the game is so political. Then again the only entity with enough resources to traffic drugs transnationally would be the government. It’s damn near impossible to get on the level of Mayo without cooperation from the Law because to beat the law you gotta be the law!

    3. photos look fake or unless they were hit with a heart attack. looks staged not even bullet hole on vehicles, someone's trying to create confussion.

    4. So your saying Mencho has more money then Don Mayo? Mayo has empresario money now, not just narco funds. While I agree to some of your post, Mayo pull isn’t over but neither are his funds.

  15. Are they using ceramic plates in the tactical vests? Should be able to stop .223 and goat horn rounds. Not much protection from dome shots, though.

  16. More news on Bahía Tortugas, por favor. I'll be stopping there in March on a sailing passage to refuel/re-provision as we work our way to Cabo. It's such a tiny, out of the way pueblito..... WTF are narcos doing there for Pedro's sake?

  17. El Atlante is cleaning house

  18. Some of them don't leave the house because there to busy using their own product afraid of getting caught high making bad decisions spreading lies victimizing loved ones just so they can continue to smoke dope and speedball begging for money to get by. Bullying people and using them as scape goats instead of fessing up that their a junkie and having allot of head problems

    1. 6:34 smoking dope at home and begging for money to buy more dope doesn't make you any money, right?
      Beleeme, I feel your pain...
