CJNG was Responsible for the Killing of Canadian Traffickers at Quintana Roo Tourist Resort

Óscar Iván "N" also known as "El Chago" is a member of CJNG and said to be the intellectual author of the hit on a pair of Canadian-Vietnamese traffickers over a large drug debt.

The Jalisco New Generation Cartel planned the execution of two Canadian citizens at the Xcaret Hotel in Quintana Roo in early 2022, who were members of a Vietnamese mafia cell that owed money to the Mexican criminal organization, for which they executed the two men in the tourist destination of Playa del Carmen.

Óscar Iván "N", El Chago, was identified as the alleged intellectual author of the attack on the tourist complex and was arrested in Mexico City on May 1, along with one of his alleged accomplices. But now, intelligence reports from the Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena) consulted by Infobae México, indicate that "El Chago" is a member of the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel (CJNG).

The murders were captured on hotel surveillance cameras.

The Quintana Roo Prosecutor's Office had indicated that the murder of the foreigners was due to financial debt for drugs in transnational drug trafficking operations. It is established that El Chago hired the group of assassins in Mexico City and ordered Cristian R. to command the attack since this subject was a member of a cell dedicated to committing executions.

Due to heavy security in the resort and the complexity of the task, the two individuals who were entrusted initially declined to carry out the murders at the Xcaret hotel declined the job. "El Chago" and his operators were informed and commissioned the executions to Óscar Olmedo Alanís, "El Sureño," who traveled from Iztapalapa and finally carried out the attack on the afternoon of January 21.

Robert Dinh (Conh Dinh), center, and Thomas Cherukara, right, along with Jessica Sahadee Ceara Yari were all shot Jan. 21, 2022. Only Yari survived.

Robert James Dinh was the main target, considered by Canadian authorities and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to be the right-hand man of the head of the Vietnamese mob there, Cong Dinh. The latter is wanted for his alleged activities in laundering millions of dollars from the sale and shipment of ecstasy, marijuana, and cocaine. The operations linked to this subject identified by the DEA cover Mexico, California, Australia, Vietnam, and the streets of northern Canada.

Robert James Dinh arrived in Quintana Roo on a trip with friends and family, who traveled to the tourist destination for recreation purposes. The CJNG operator was notified, so he decided to launch the attack. The intended target of the CJNG was accompanied by who was also killed at the scene: Thomas Cherukar, a subject who was also linked to various crimes, including drug trafficking, robberies, weapons, crimes against property, and false identity use.


  1. The article implies that the victims were not necessarily in Mexico to settle the debt. The cartel got wind of their arrival and that was that.

    1. They were in Mexico for a while, until they got murdered.

  2. Apparently the first set of hit men declined the job after being hired... I wonder if there will be consequences for them...?

  3. Hopefully international criminals and scammers learn from this

    1. 6:56pm Canada owes Mexico a biggie for taking out our quasi Canadian trash.
