Mexico City: SSPC Recaptures "El Michoacano", A Criminal Leader Who Escaped From A Prison In Hidalgo

"Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat

Jose Artemio Maldonado Mejía, alias "El Michoacáno", was arrested on Arcos de Belén street, at the corner of Luis Moya, in the Doctores neighborhood of Mexico City.

The Secretariat of Security and Citizen Protection (SSPC) reported the arrest of José Artemio Maldonado Mejía, alias "El Michoacano" or "El Rabias", one of the nine prisoners who escaped in December last year from a prison in Hidalgo.

The recaptured is the leader of the criminal organization "Pueblos Unidos in Michoacán", he is allegedly dedicated to fuel theft, among other crimes. He was arrested on Calle Arcos de Belén, on the corner of Luis Moya, in the Doctores neighborhood of Mexico City.

His brother and collaborator Gerardo "N", alias "Shrek", who has an arrest warrant for kidnapping in Puebla, was also arrested.

The arrests were based on intelligence work, exchange of information and coordination of the Secretariat of Security and Citizen Protection (SSPC), the National Anti-kidnapping Coordination (Conase); the National Intelligence Fusion Center (CENFI) – Regional Intelligence Fusion Centers (CERFI) Center; the Attorney General's Offices and Units Specialized in Combating Kidnapping of Hidalgo and Michoacán. As well as the Secretariat of Citizen Security (SSC) of Mexico City.

“El Michoacano” was a fugitive after his escape on December 1, 2021 from the Tula de Allende prison, in the state of Hidalgo, along with eight other inmates. To achieve this, criminals detonated four car bombs and entered the prison.

José Artemio Maldonado Mejía had already resumed his criminal activities, allegedly leading cells of the Pueblos Unidos criminal group with struggles against the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) for territorial control, generating scenes of violence.

  1. Nice. 2 fore 1. So carteles unidos has taken 3 hits this week with this guy and his brother and El Abuelos son. Keep it coming. Next three years of AMLO'S term are gonna be gratifying.

  2. Motherfucker got fat on prison food and Huachicol, and got tricked on the prison escape,
    Y ahora quién podrá ayudarlo??

  3. Mexican officials acting like game fisherman: catch and release.

    1. Yes 12" hotdog. Catch and release when bribe is paid.

  4. That didn't last long
    Too bad a prison escape charge can't be added in Mexico

    1. They should fix that. Unfortunately there's alot to fix in Mexico, and AMLO is changing what he could, but every thing is a struggle. The opposition is fighting him in any proposals Morena presents. They're so against him that if Morena were to present a bill raising funding and salaries for el PRIAN PDR and MC that they would probably vote against it blinded by the hate they have for AMLO and attacking and trying to take away their corrupt way of life. He's changed something's but all his measures haven't went through. We'll see what the future holds

    2. I agree fully. The government has been hitting cartels hard as of late. Maybe ALMO had this lay and wait strategy from the get go. But as you stated. It’s hard rolling back decades of corruption. But he’s definitely giving Mexico hope I’d say.

    3. AMLO should declare a dictatorship until he gets rid of cocksucking motherfuackers and then declare it over.
      Biden should do the same and nationalize fuels as a strategic resource that can't be at the mercy of greedy motherfuckers...
      Tromp and co. would not hesitate and matter of fack they are not hesitating right naw...

    4. 8:35 hitting hard my ass, Obrador government cares about bribes, and let's cartels run loose. Obrador son unemployed got 1 million dollars home in USA, Benz worth 80 grand, under wife's name so it won't get siezed. Obrador sure does not make that type of money

    5. 739 lol. Provide the articles. Oh wait, you can't because you are a lier. Lol. Thank you for the lies. They further solidify your reputation as a lier and spreader of false information.

    6. @8:46 Obrador nuthugger Mongol lawyer in the house.

    7. 1010 lmao. "Stop belittling me!" There you go, you can't provide any articles and you never will. All you do is spread lies and misinformation Puncho. More and more people are backing AMLO because they are finding out that the mainstream mexican along with U.S media is not reporting on the infrastructure projects. Go ahead, look up the infrastructure projects. Look up the murder stats for last year, first year they decreased instead of increased in 15 years. Or how about you look up the number of drug seizures this year and extraditions in the last three years. They've exceeded those of the last three presidents combined. While you're at it look up AMLOs rating on the world leader index. He ranks number 2. 😂😂😂😂😂🤪😗

    8. 7:39 "Hay Niveles" said Obrador,
      Meaning there are levels...
      You at your level would be happy having kickbacks available to choose and pick: from lowly nickel amd dime pushas...
      AMLO has refineries, power generation, gas and oil to squeeze like you don't know back in your reservation

  5. Sol, ya le vista las chichis a este güey?
    Too much bitch tits,
    I am sure he grew them in prison,
    like many mexicans do.

  6. It's Carteles Unidos not Pueblos Unidos

  7. I’ve been to a prison where they have sit down I’ve actually been to a few and it was good because people you think are Snitchin are not snitching, so that was just one of the hilifes I don’t have three faces I only have two I can’t help what I am Mayer or what is in my heart, but if nobody’s there to teach me the rest of it because I only knew a few things, I had to learn everything I earned, and that’s real talk, but no, nobody’s down to do shit but you know when you need it to help you with your asking OK anyway by
    I need a cat I need it, but I want to write

  8. My bad didn’t mean to write that kind of dead but I guess you can say I’m pissed off sometime
