40 criminal groups in CDMX

leChef
by DAVID SAÚL VELA

In Mexico City, at least 40 criminal groups are behind drug trafficking, extortion and homicide activities, crimes considered to have the greatest social impact.

This is revealed by official information, both from the Investigative Police of the Prosecutor's Office (FGJ) and the Secretariat of Citizen Security (SSC) of the capital, as well as information obtained by El Financiero from interviews and open sources.

Those 40 groups are distributed throughout the capital, 28 operate in a single mayor's office and 12 in more than one.

The Tepito Union and the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel (CJNG) are the groups with the greatest influence. It has a presence in 11 and 7 mayoralties, respectively. Los Molina, Los Rodolfos, Cartel de Tláhuac and Lenin Canchola, operate in five mayoralties each.

Some groups are associated, but operate independently, others are antagonistic. All are dedicated to drug dealing and extortion, derived from it, they also tend to be implicated in homicides as a product of quarrels, revenges or dispute over control of the territory.

As of May 2019, the FGJ Investigative Police and the SSC had 25 groups identified. The data obtained by this newspaper reveals that to date there are already 40.

In the capital there are other gangs dedicated to theft from account holders, from banks, card cloning, human trafficking, in many of which they are integrated or made up entirely of foreigners.

El Financiero requested interviews with FGJ and SSC authorities, but there was no response. However, on Monday the capital authorities took stock of security and reported a downward trend in crimes such as intentional homicide, kidnapping, extortion and robbery in various forms. But the capital has failed to regain the levels of security it had in 2015.

No need to thank me, my friend.

I started out as a forum user myself (first as a casual reader for years, then with some posts here and there), so I appreciate the work everyone does around here.
