Leader of Tepito Union: 'El Lunares' released ---then re-arrested

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat   Reforma

A video recorded with a cell phone by a neighbor served to release Oscar Andrés Flores Ramírez, "El Lunares", identified as the alleged leader of the Tepito Union, because he provided proof that his capture and that of two other persons occurred irregularly and police falsified facts regarding the arrest.

The recording, of about 20 seconds, was paramount in the decision of Control Judge of the Federal Criminal Justice Center of the Reclusorio Oriente, Beatriz Moguel Ancheyta, who ordered yesterday morning the immediate freedom of Flores Ramírez and her co-defendants, identified as Hugo Armando Flores Rosete and Érick Estrada Velázquez.

In the images, transmitted during the hearing and confirmed by the neighbor, it was observed that Hugo Armando Flores Rosete was captured by elements of the Secretary of the Navy, who, after taking him out of his house, put him in a white Suburban truck.

Thus, the defense of the accused proved that their clients were not detained aboard a Mazda truck, in possession of two firearms, cartridges and doses of marijuana and cocaine, as assured by the capital investigation agents who signed the Police Report Approved (IPH).

The judge said that the report stated that Flores Rosete was supposedly the driver of the truck accompanied by "El Lunares" and Estrada Velázquez.

The video also questions the times of the IPH, as it shows that Flores Rosete got into the van at 9:19 am - according to the telephone registration - when it is assumed that at that time the three detainees were already on their way to Mexico City, and that They went to the Pachuca airport between 7:35 and 9:40, supposedly with too much traffic.

However, Óscar Andrés Flores Ramírez was re-apprehended yesterday at about 4:00 p.m. yesterday by Agents of the Investigation Police of the Attorney General's Office of Mexico City, without lawyers or relatives of the accused being presented.

At around 4:15 p.m., the convoy departed from the Altiplano to transfer "El Lunares" to the Northern Prison of Mexico City.

At 4:50 p.m., the convoy made the first stopover at the Prosecutor's Office of the State of Mexico, to go later to the agency of the Public Ministry Miguel Hidalgo 5 in the Capital, and another medical examination was performed.

Finally, at 7:45 p.m., the convoy with Oscar Andrés approached a Jeep-type vehicle to the North Men's Preventive Prison, to determine their legal status.

Yesterday the Head of Government, Claudia Sheinbaum, pointed out that in organized crime resolutions, judges should see the general context and not just the details in any written report…


  1. The judge that took his money should give it back, thats not fair

  2. Missed the next payment

  3. The lesson you do business right. They did wrong. The next dummy should wise up. His rearrest came from US interests in CDMX.

  4. Every week another "leader" of Tepito Union is caught. They all look like high school kids so im guessing none of these guys are the actual leader. I mean this kid couldnt be older than 21 give me a break.
