                             “El Capuchino” leader of the Acapulco Independent Cartel falls:
José Ángel Galeano Palacios,“El Capuchino”, identified as the alleged plaza leader of the Acapulco Independent Cartel , was detained in the Municipality of Panindícuaro  Michoacán .

Through a statement, authorities from the state of Guerrero , as well as from Michoacán , announced the capture of the " Capuchino ", who is related to the murder of three people; as well as for the crime of injuries committed to the detriment of a fourth victim; events that occurred in the state of Guerrero.

This is what is known from the capture of the "Capuchino" in Michoacán:

The Attorney General's Office of the State of Michoacán ( FGE ) reported that as a result of coordinated work with the National Anti- Kidnapping Coordination ( Conase ) and the Attorney General's Office of the State of Guerrero, José Ángel “N” , alias“ El Capuchino ”, was captured this Tuesday during an operation and in compliance with an arrest warrant.

“(…) For its possible relationship in the homicide of three people and the crime of injuries, committed to the detriment of a fourth victim; events that occurred in the state of Guerrero". States the Michoacán Prosecutor's Office as the official part.

This is how the operation was carried out in Panindícuaro, Michoacán:
Once investigative acts were carried out, it was possible to establish the possible presence of José Ángel “N” in the entity , which is why the collaboration of the Attorney General of Michoacán was requested.

This Tuesday, when personnel from the Kidnapping Combat Unit (UECS) carried out an operational action on the Western Highway, in coordination with Conase and the Guerrero State Prosecutor's Office , at the center of the municipality of Panindícuaro , it was possible to detect José Ángel “N”, who at the time of identifying himself showed a driver's license in the name of another person, to try to evade the action of justice by the authorities.

Once the respective protocols are met, the detainee will be transferred to the state of Guerrero, to be presented before the jurisdictional authority that claims him, in order to determine his legal situation, explained the Michoacán Prosecutor's Office .

Elements of the Michoacán Prosecutor's Office's Kidnapping Combat Unit arrested José Ángel Galeana Palacios, ''El Capuchino'', leader of the Acapulco Independent Cartel.

Without giving details, the State Prosecutor's Office reported that the capture of 'El Capuchino' was carried out on the Autopista de Occidente, near the municipality of Panindícuaro.

Guerrero security areas place ''El Capuchino'' as the head of that cell of ''Los Beltrán Leyva'' in Guerrero territory, with operations in the municipality of Acapulco.

This cartel is in charge of controlling the sale and transfer of drugs, as well as the collection of fees from companies and businesses on the Miguel Aleman coast, ie extortion.
One of the main centers of operation of the Acapulco Independent Cartel is the Social Reintegration Center (Cereso) of Las Cruces, Acapulco.
