Narco Blockades Once Again Mar Guanajuato Following Shootout in Juventino Rosas

By "El Huaso" for Borderland Beat

This afternoon, agents of the Fuerzas de Seguridad Pública del Estado (FSPE) engaged in a shootout with armed criminals on the highway between Celaya and Juventino Rosas, in central Guanajuato. The criminals responded by burning vehicles and establishing road blocks in the region. This happens just days after CJNG paralyzed the state with coordinated attacks across ten cities in Jalisco and Guanajuato in effort to disrupt a law enforcement operation against their leaders, as reported by Borderland Beat.

According to security expert David Saucedo, this region is controlled by the Cartel Santa Rosa de Lima.

Photos of the event show spiked caltrops on the ground, called "ponchallantas" (tire puncturerers), a common weapon used by criminals in Mexico against vehicles.

Guanajuato is the most violent in Mexico by its homicide count of 4,333 in 2021, which accounted for over 10% of the nations total, according to government data. This violence has had a profound effect on its citizens, 84.3% of whom responded that they feel unsafe in their city in 2021, a massive increase from the 59.6% who answered five years before, when conflict between large criminal groups arrived to the state.

  1. looks like CJNG is desperate

    1. CSRL can't have many people left. They are largely defeated.

    2. 9:21 knows more than David Saucedo. In fact it was 9:21 who made the recent map of Guanajuato that showed who controls what areas and with who they're in conflict with.

    3. 9:21 looks like you are desperate to make Cjng desperate

    1. Asi es

    2. I heard the same, una muchacha que conozco me mando un video donde hay retenes y dice q punteros pero eso no creo. Pero yo no escuché nada de Narcobloqeos.

    3. AMLO has named Carlos Zamarripaas the reason for so much crime in the State Guanajuato, on occasion of the arrest of Veracruz'Jorge Winckler after 3 years on the lam
      State fiscals and public security secretaries like Arturo Bermudez and Veytia, el Fiscal del Diablo in Nayarit...crime indexes come down as soon as they are gone.
      There is also "Admiral Ahuir".
