4 CJNG Members Named As Targets By The US, Operating From Colima

Adyr Corral for Milenio

The following is a direct translation of an article written by journalist Adyr Corral for Milenio newspaper

Four alleged members of the Jalisco Cartel - New Generation (CJNG) who operate drug smuggling through the port of Manzanillo, Colima, and its surroundings, were included on the US Treasury Department's blacklist.  They are:

    • Aldrin Miguel Jarquín Jarquín, alias "El Chaparrito", 45 years old;
    • José Jesús Jarquín Jarquín, alias "El R32", 37 years old
    • César Enrique Díaz De León Sauceda, alias "El Lobito", 34 years old
    • Fernando Zagal Antón, 39 years old

According to intelligence information provided by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), they are among the highest ranking members of the CJNG. 

"They help coordinate CJNG drug trafficking operations through the port of Manzanillo and maintain contact with cocaine supply sources in Colombia," the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) indictment alleges. In June 2020 the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) blocked the bank accounts of these individuals due to their relationship with the CJNG. 

"The Jalisco Cartel - New Generation (CJNG) is a violent Mexican-based organization responsible for trafficking a substantial amount of fentanyl and other deadly drugs into the United States," OFAC emphasized.

It added that the CJNG's strategy of expansion and control of drug trafficking territory, which includes Colima and the port of Manzanillo, owes its success in large part to violence employed against rivals and Mexican government security agents.  

The cartel, it noted, "is responsible for the June 2020 death of a federal judge in Colima, which has one of the highest per capita homicide rates caused in part by the CJNG's local drug trafficking operations," the agency said.

Note the stretched aspect ratio of Mencho's photos and lack of color correcting on La Gallina. 

OFAC assured that the movement carried out in accordance with the Law for the Designation of Foreign Drug Traffickers or Kingpin Law, is part of the effort to "break" the CJNG, and the result of the continuous collaboration of the entity belonging to the Department of the Treasury and its partners in the US government, as well as the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and its counterparts in the Mexican government, including the FIU. 

"The criminal success of the CJNG is due in part to its presence in strategic locations, such as Manzanillo. This Pacific coast port serves as a major gateway for Colombian cocaine and chemical precursors from Asia, including those used to synthesize fentanyl."

"The Treasury Department is committed to working with its US and Mexican partners to expose, isolate and dismantle CJNG members who operate in Manzanillo and elsewhere," OFAC Director Andrea Gacki said in this regard. 

In accordance with the Kingpin Law designation, these four signaled materially assist, or provide financial or technological support, goods or services in support of the CJNG.

In addition this fact, they maintain ties with individuals previously designated by the Treasury Department, since "they report to Julio Alberto Castillo Rodríguez, son-in-law of the leader of the CJNG, Rubén Oseguera Cervantes, 'El Mencho' ", assured the dependence. 

The designations made this Wednesday are the fifteenth action taken by OFAC against the CJNG, which began with the designation of the organization in April 2015, along with 'El Mencho', for their prominent roles in international narcotics trafficking. 


  1. There's a reason cds have been trying to get that plaza for a while now
    Chapo sent a bunch of sicarios after mencho when he was in Colima. They were there to kill mencho but mencho's security managed to save his life and kill most of those sicarios.

    1. Its the biggest port in Mexico and its for the $$ why else. This is El 85 plaza the state of Colima has been his for a decade now. Anyone who says el 85 is against CJNG is an idiot. He is Menchos compadre, El 03 blood uncle and is married to Menchos cousin. Just a story they tried to sell off that Cholo video.
      That story is exaggerated. They never made it close to Mencho. They did go into that plaza to try and take over and maybe kill him or have him arrested by the govr in th process but they failed. Its not like those cheesy spanish movies or shows where the narcos go with al their men everywhere ans just get in 1 giant topon until everyone dies. Its war tactics and strategies. They are not stupid. Big topons do happen but not exactly like the movies

    2. Julio Alberto is married to Menchos daughter correct?

    3. 11:11 actually Lazaro Cardenas in michoacan is the biggest port last time I checked.
      Yea, I'm sure it wasn't a huge topon but I just read somewhere that he was ambushed in Colima.

  2. Animo Sicarios!!
    The Grupo Flecha's "Lista Negra " has been updated with these enemy combatants. All transmission are sent via the 6g network to the tactical tablets

    1. Hows the flechas feeling now after la putisa they getting in zac lol.. i remember when you used to be on here on los beltranes nuts .. perfect example of a chapulin

    2. Yea paid snitches at that is my I guess..

    3. 066 receives orders from BB gtfo

    4. 006, I have been wanting to check out the state's of Michocan and Colima for awhile now. Also, narco training camps in Jalisco. Seems like a good time could be had by all. Unfortunately, I have come to realize I need a big strong man to protect me. 006, I think you are that man. Can we travel in your Monster Tank with a turret? Run it by Mrs.006 and let me know. Yours, H

  3. Question.. how are they able to idenfity all these characters? Thru snitches or ?

    1. El Benny, do you mean find them? Yes, probably somebody who has a grudge with them, inside informants (scary job),greed, somebody who is jealous or wants to take their place.
      A tremendous amount of money can be paid out to that individual and for the people who narc'd and sometimes green cards for their family to come to America. Not to mention somebody who is looking for a plea deal as a major cooperating witness.

  4. I wonder when our government will designate these thugs as terrorist, because that is what these people are.

    1. 7:34 If they do that, who will bring in the drugs the American people desperately need?
      They will lose money, so that is out of the question.
      That will 0nly happen if they legalized all the drugs because they no longer get will need the cartels.

  5. That guy “El Sapo” look evil evil lol

    1. That's the 1st thing I thought when I seen his picture. Bet he looked the same in his kindergarten pictures too 🤣🤣

    2. James, that WAS his kindergarten picture
