Old Video of Kidnapped Police Being Interrogated By Pajaro Sierra Gains Attention

"HEARST" and "Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat 

An old video of municipal police officers, who were held at gunpoint by Pajaro Sierra members, shows them admitting to working for the Cártel Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG) when they were interrogated. 

The Footage 

A video, which was reportedly first published weeks ago, has now caught the attention of social media users and major news outlets. It reportedly depicts a number of municipal police officers - two men and four women - who were just captured and being held at gunpoint by members of the cartel group Pajaro Sierra. 

Pajaro Sierra is a CJNG defector group that now fights against the CJNG in a western region of the state of Jalisco, near Lake Chapala, as well as in the municipalities right across the border in the state of Michoacán. For more details on who they are and why they split with the CJNG, please see this previous story.

The video allegedly took place within the municipality of Concepción de Buenos Aires, to the west of other hotspots of the fighting like Mazamitla and Tizapan el Alto.  

However, the town of Concepción has been hit with its fair share of the violence due to the warring cartel factions. On February 28, 2022, the town council asked citizens to avoid leaving their homes due to a recent spike in violence. The advisory was later lifted. Then at the end of May, federal investigators found 2 kilos of methamphetamine, 2 firearms and 2 grenades within an apparent stash house on Nery street in Concepción.

A group of alleged Pajaro Sierra members were said to have intercepted at least one police patrol car, disarmed them, ordered them to get on their knees and then recorded the following interrogation. 

A woman can be heard crying in the background. A man is asked by the group about who in the police force is on the payroll of the CJNG.  The following video contains no graphic content, only an interrogation is shown.

They say the following, as translate by Sol Prendido: 

Policeman:  My name is Luis Ubaldo and I’m working for…

Interrogator: What are the names of the individuals who support the 4 letters cartel?

Policeman: The name of the directors are Mary Martinez and Joel Mora. 

Interrogator: Where are these directors from?

Policeman: Joel Mora is from Manzanillo (Manzanillo, Colima). And Mary is from Concepción de Buenos Aires (Concepción de Buenos Aires, Jalisco). 

Interrogator: Are they the ones who send you guys out as point men at all the intersections?

Policeman: Yes, this is true. We only do this whenever the government is coming through the area. 

Interrogator: So, this only happens when the Verdes (Government Personnel) passes through?

Policeman: Yes, that’s how it goes.

Previous Events in the Pájaro Sierra vs CJNG War


  1. So what happens to the PO’s?

    1. I believe only 1 cop was released.

    2. Sargy said the two women were released and the men killed in some fashion some weeks back

    3. 5:28 do us all a favor and don't bother mentioning that slob midget here anymore. He has a known history of smacking women around. As well as threatening them.

  2. are you not sick Of it ALL 5 million walk and confront it all 2/3 walkers be infiltrated death squad..u setfor life death and gloom🖤🖤🖤🖤🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦

  3. I’m guessing they make them confess on camera so they can publicize them as snitches and get them killed that way. They were probably released unharmed after this video only to face retribution when they get back to the office or casa.

  4. What a wrap up Dr Sol y Dona Hearst.

  5. The war is in zamora too goes all the way across to sahuayo get it right borderlandbeat and all that youve posted
