CDN Interrogates A Member Of Joaquín Arzate aka El Chimuelo

"Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat

Joaquín Arzate alias "El Chimuelo", head of the Cadereyta cartel, has started a war in the state of Nuevo León, unleashing a wave of violence that hadn’t been seen in the state for years.

A few days ago, war was declared when Joaquín Arzate ordered the murder and immolation of more than a dozen people in Pesquería, Nuevo León. This is not his first offensive. Several weeks before he did the same in the municipality of Hualahuises, leaving immolated people inside a private vehicle on a rural road.

All this because of their trade war to control the theft of hydrocarbons in the state.

Now the Cartel del Noreste (Northeast Cartel) has begun its counteroffensive by sending direct messages against Joaquin Arzate's organization, murdering direct collaborators whom they interrogate before committing these bloody acts.

In these videos, they confess to working under the command of La Flama as Cadereyta is known for its refinery's burners. And they mention collusion with authorities who protect them so that they can carry out these atrocious acts. Leaving the burned people as a signature of La Flama. 

We hope that the government of the state of Nuevo León can take action on the matter before the state becomes what it was in 2010 and 2011.

Video translation is as follows:

Interrogator: So, what’s the deal you fool. Who do you work for?

Captive: I work for La Flama. 

Interrogator: For La Flama huh? Where exactly do you work with La Flama or with who else?

Captive: I was captured here nearby…

Interrogator: No, no, no. I want to know who you work with. 

Captive: Ah, for La Flama. 

Interrogator: La Flama?

Captive: Yes. 

Interrogator: Where exactly were you captured?

Captive: I was running on a stretch of road near the rail road tracks in the town of Linares. 

Interrogator: What exactly were you doing there running?

Captive: I was exercising. 

Interrogator: Exercising?

Captive: Yes. 

Interrogator: Okay. And what were you doing in Linares?

Captive: I was leaving a truck that had been left in the town of Pesquerías. 

Interrogator: What were you guys doing in Pesquerías with that truck?

Captive: There were some corpses inside of it. 

Interrogator: You had bodies in there?

Captive: Yes. 

Interrogator: What did you do with that truck?

Captive: I torched it. 

Interrogator: Where did you torch it?

Captive: Here in Linares. 

Interrogator: How much are you being paid?

Captive: I was given 3 thousand pesos about two weeks ago. 

Interrogator: You were paid 3 thousand pesos?

Captive: Yes. 

Interrogator: Where do you guys get paid?

Captive: In the town of Cadereyta. 

Interrogator: Cadereyta?

Captive: Yes. 

Interrogator: Who’s the person in charge of paying?

Captive: Its this guy…

Interrogator: Who is it you fool?

Captive: This one dude…

Interrogator: Which guy? You just mentioned his name earlier. 

Captive: His name is Chimuelo. 

Interrogator: Chimuelo? Ok. And who gives you support there?

Captive: The municipal police. 

Interrogator: Who else besides the municipal police?

Captive: (unintelligible)

Interrogator: The only ones in charge here are the absolute Northeast Cartel (CDN) you bitches. The absolute CDN. Chimuelo, send me more men like this my way. Send me more sons of bitches like this guy here. At the very least send tougher men my way you fool. 

Video translation is as follows:

Interrogator: Keep sending more men, keep sending more pieces of shit like this guy here my way. Take a good look at how I’m going to leave your gang of dumb asses. You piece of shit I’m going to kill everyone who supports you. 

Cadereyta, Nuevo León

  1. He was a tough guy until captured by a rival cartel.

    1. he was only going for a jog. doesn't prove much to grab him.

    2. @1130 simple question and let me clarify I don't have a dog in this fight but what about the guys actions suggest he's no longer a "tough guy"? If he ever was one. I feel like he took his fate like a man because I couldn't tell you how I'd react being in this same situation but he wasn't crying, begging pleading or demonstrating any other behavior that would suggest he wasn't a "tough guy" as you say.

    3. They act tough in groups but when alone he is sissy.

    4. 12:39 good point🐙

    5. Caderota o cadereyta
