March 13 (UPI) -- Silvano Aureoles Conejo, governor of Mexico's Michoacán state, on Monday said security forces arrested Gilberto "El Chanda" Gómez Romero, a lieutenant of the Los H3, or Third Brotherhood, cartel.

During a speech at the Valladolid military barracks in the state capital of Morelia, Aureoles Conejo said Gómez Romero's arrest on Sunday is an example by Michoacán's authorities to provide security to the public, El Universal reported.

Aureoles Conejo said a fundamental task for the development of Michoacán is to guarantee security, adding that its people will not be held hostage to specific interests or criminal organizations.

Aureoles Conejo praised the "the value and commitment of the police" following the arrest of Gómez Romero -- one of the most wanted men in Mexico.

Gómez Romero is accused of carrying out extortion, homicide, kidnapping and other illegal activity. Mexican security forces began the search for Gómez Romero after a gunfight in the town of Cuatro Caminos. Authorities later arrested him without incident at a restaurant in the Nueva Italia de Ruiz municipality, officials said.

The Los H3 cartel, which came from a splintering in the La Familia Michoacana cartel, is led by Luis "El Americano" Antonio Torres.

BLOQUEOS CARRETEROS POR LA DETENCIÓN DE “EL CHANDA”

Tras la captura de Gilberto Romero alias “El Chanda”, este domingo cerca del tramo carretero “Cuatro Caminos”, se reportan bloqueos en la carretera Apatzingan-Nueva Italia, por aproximadamente 100 personas de la población de Úspero.

Las fuerzas de seguridad desplegaron un fuerte operativo de patrullaje en todo el trayecto que compone la Autopista Siglo XXI, para lo que en la caseta de cobro de Santa Casilda arribó una aeronave con personal militar.

This might have something to do with Juan Carlos sierra Santana's death recently.

Also worth noting that "El Chanda" was blamed for the December 2015 killing of Carlos Rosales Mendoza, alias "El Tísico".
