MEXICO CITY (approved) .- Elements of the Federal Police (PF) and the Secretariat of National Defense (SEDENA) arrested in Naucalpan, State of Mexico to David Garza Garza Garcia Elias Avila or "El Diablo" or M-19 , operational and financial coordinator alleged Gulf Cartel.
The detainee, 28, it is identified as one of the main collaborators of Juan Manuel Lozano Salinas El Comandante Toro , head of the criminal organization.
In a statement, the National Security (CNS) said that Garza presumably served as manager for the sale, distribution and handling of drugs to the United States, and is indicated as likely responsible for ordering several executions in the municipalities of Reynosa, Mier and Rio Bravo, in Tamaulipas.
According to the agency, the arrest stemmed from research that allowed them to know that the subject would arrive to Mexico City for plastic surgery and that he might not be recognized realized.
By obtaining the first data of the possible whereabouts of the accused, he said, elements of the federal forces implemented a search operation and location that culminated in his arrest when he was near the Mexico State municipality.
David Garza Ávila or Elías Garza García was arrested along with three people, who were in possession of a long gun, rounds of ammunition, a kilo of crystal , 10 kilos of marijuana, one vehicle and five teams of mobile telephony.
Detainees and seized objects were made available to the Federal Public Ministry agent assigned to the Deputy Attorney Specialized Investigation of Organized Crime (SEIDO), which will monitor the investigations and determine their legal status.
Some of the financial operators are involved in laundering the proceeds of the drug cartels. Others are responsible for keeping track of a Cartel's earnings, who owes the Cartel money for drugs that were provided on "credit," payments made to underlings, or bribes to officials. In a sense, they act like bookkeepers.
By taking the ill gotten gains, they use contacts in any number of legal businesses to "wash" or "launder" the money so it appears to have been earned from legitimate commerce. They will pay the owner of a "legitimate" business a percentage to create a paper trail in an attempt to show that the money from drug sales was actually earned legitimately. Cartels also open their own businesses for the specific purpose of laundering their cash. Any business where the majority of transactions are primarily done in cash are prime locations for money laundering. A foreign exchange business is a prime example because they take in cash from one country and exchange it for cash from another country.
If you look up the recent case involving the Zetas in Texas, you will see a prime example of how this organization attempted to launder their money through the establishment of a ranch for horse racing. They bought horses, raced them and made or lost money by betting on the outcome of the horse races. When you read about this case, pay attention to the names of the race horses. These pendejos made it obvious what they were up to.
This is the first time that I've read a caption underneath a photograph in a Spanish language news site that basically states that the arrestee is to be "presumed innocent and shall be treated as such in all of the stages of the procedures while he does not declare his responsibility through sentencing." For as long as I can remember, a person that was arrested in Mexico was presumed guilty until proven otherwise.
Evidence of the changes occurring in Mexico's judicial system to somewhat mirror that of the U.S.
Re: Financial coordinator of Gulf Cartel arrested in Naucalpan, trying to get plastic surgery
Usually horses that have the name cartel in them come from them being bred by corona cartel. For example The Louisiana Cartel, Carters Cartel. Has nothing to do with cartel association in mexico. Plus alot of these horses are already named before being sold in auction.
