Doña Lety detained

Bjeff
[Bjeff: She is believed to have controlled the drug trade in the north of Quintana Roo for at least five years, and has been moving in on Playa del Carmen recently, triggering a fight with Los Zetas]



Leticia Rodríguez Lara, alias 'Doña Lety' or 'La 40', was detained by officers of the Federal Police and the Secretary of the Navy, on the Puebla-Orizaba Highway.

A federal source indicated that, according to preliminary reports, the arrest of the leader of the Cancun Cartel occurred yesterday afternoon.

He said that "Dona Lety" was the only one arrested after the operation coordinated by the authorities, although he did not specify whether she was in a building or circulating on the highway.

Rodríguez Lara was transferred to the facilities of the Specialized Office of Investigation of Organized Delinquency (SEIDO) located in Mexico City.

"Federal Police with the support of the Secretariat of the Navy captured in operation in Puebla on the Puebla-Veracruz to Leticia Rodriguez Lara, aka Doña Lety or La 40," said the source.

"Doña Lety" or "La 40" worked as a federal police and has been identified as a leader and founder of the Cancun Cartel, which is allegedly linked to the Sinaloa Cartel, according to authorities.

It is also attributed various violent acts derived from the narcomenudeo dispute in Cancun, Quintana Roo.
According to police investigations, the criminal group of Rodriguez Lara is made up of sicarios deserting from Los Zetas and the Gulf Cartel.

Its operations are based on the collection of piso from businesses such as bars and restaurants located in Cancun and Playa del Carmen.

She also controls the purchase and sale of drugs, the main reason she founded the Cancun Cartel, according to federal authorities.
 
Due to the escalation of violence, Quintana Roo caught red lights with the federal government.

And in the first half of this year the number of intentional homicide complaints shot up 60 percent in the state, from 56 to 134 in the first half of 2016 and 2017, respectively, according to data from the National System Of Public Security.

The main tourist destinations of the state, such as Cancun, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen and Tulum, record violent incidents related to narcomenudeo and the collection of piso by organized crime cells.

So that's who they picked up.  Saw some news on it yesterday but it didn't give any aliases or specifics into which cartel.  Seems like the gov't got tired of the multiple shootouts and losing money from tourists staying away.

Saw this just a little bit ago from the WaPost.  Again not much on specifics and seems like they are through some heat on CJNG unless Dona Lety cambio de bandera.




MEXICO CITY — Mexican authorities say they have caught a female drug gang leader who was allegedly responsible for much of the violence in the Caribbean resort city of Cancun.

The government said in a statement late Wednesday that federal police and marines caught Leticia Rodriguez in the central state of Puebla.

Mexico’s most popular beach destination has been hit by violence in recent months. In January, gunmen attacked the state prosecutors’ office in Cancun, killing four people.

The Jalisco New Generation cartel has also been reported to be active in Cancun.

The government responds by sending 600 troops to Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Chetumal in a preemptive move.
