Gangs battle over drug trade in southeast Mexico City
The death of a Mexico City criminal leader at the hands of marines in 2017 was the catalyst for a turf war in the capital’s southeast that is believed to be behind a recent surge in violence including a multi-homicide last weekend.
Two years ago, the drug trade in an area of Mexico City known as Los Culhuacanes was controlled by the Tláhuac Cartel, a gang led by Felipe de Jesús Pérez Luna, or “El Ojos” (The Eyes), until he was shot dead in July 2017 during a violent confrontation with marines.
Narco-blockades made an unprecedented appearance in Mexico City during the clash, which also claimed the lives of seven of Pérez’s sicarios, or hitmen.
After El Ojos was killed, smaller criminal groups that had been at his service began to fight for control of Los Culhuacanes, a zone which is made of up several neighborhoods on the fringes of the boroughs of Iztapalapa, Coyoacán, Xochimilco, Tláhuac and Tlalpan.
There were 35 intentional homicides in the area last year believed to be related to the settling of scores between rival gangs, the newspaper El Universal reported today.
According to intelligence gathered by the Mexico City Attorney General’s office (PGJ), members of two families who work for two criminal gangs known as Los Pitufos (The Smurfs) and Los Rodolfos are engaged in a bitter dispute in Los Culhuacanes.
Based on declarations given by family members of victims of violence, the PGJ has determined that the enforcers of the former group are seven brothers with the surname Molina, aka Los Molina.
Three of the brothers – Noé, Luis and Juan Carlos – are suspected of carrying out an attack in the neighborhood of Los Reyes Culhuacán, Iztapalapa, early Sunday morning that left seven people dead and two more seriously wounded.
According to the PGR, the other group, Los Rodolfos, has entered into a “commercial relationship” with a gang known as Los Panchos, whose members are involved in the on-the-ground conflict with the Molina brothers.
Members of both gangs have allegedly murdered each other at nightclubs, bars, restaurants and tourist areas in Mexico City’s southeastern boroughs.
Clashes between Los Molina and Los Panchos are also believed to be responsible for the deaths of three people at a Christmas party last year and the wounding of four others, and the slaying of five more people in November at a suspected drug dealing location.
The principal line of investigation for authorities carrying out inquiries into Sunday’s deadly attack is that it was a settling of scores between the two gangs.
The main target was a retail drug dealer known as El Mane, the official investigation has established, while the other six people killed, all of whom had criminal records, were apparently “collateral damage.”
Witnesses and family members of the victims have told authorities that El Mane sold drugs for Los Molina until August last year but racked up a debt of 100,000 pesos (US $5,200) with the brothers that he never paid back.

In two separate operations, seven alleged members of the criminal group "Los Molina", linked to the multihomicide of Los Reyes Culhuacán, were detained by special agents of the Secretariat of Public Safety (SSC).
The first was carried out in Fuego Fatuo and Amistad, Colonia Valle de las Luces, where four narcomenudistas were arrested in the service of "El Negro Aguas".
Ramón García Santoyo "El Negro Aguas" is a member of "Los Molina" and operates not only in Iztapalapa, but in Ecatepec and Chalco, State of Mexico, according to reports from the SSC. Based on the folder FCIN / ACD / UI-1C / D / 00101 / 02-2019, the four suspects were caught while distributing marijuana and cocaine.
Above: Feliciano L., 40 years old; his brother Salvador, 43, Uriel S., 33 and Abraham L., 22. They were caught with 80 wrappings with cocaine, 400 pesos in cash and two cell phones.
The second operation took place on Tuesday night, in Membrillo and Bellavista, Colonia San Juan Xalpa, also in Iztapalapa. According to the investigation FCIN / ACD / UI-2C / D / 00109 / 02-2019, several drug transactions were detected at the point, for which Pablo S., 29 years old, Gilberto C., 20, was captured. and Edgar C., 27. They seized 62 doses of cocaine, 48 bags with marijuana and a pistol caliber .9mm.
The three admitted being members of "Los Molina" and operating for months in the area. Both the first 4 detainees and the last 3 were at the disposal of the Antinarcomenudeo Public Prosecutor's Office, of the local PGJ.
In this colony, on January 31st, two Investigative agents and a civilian who wore an SSC credential were shot by alleged drug dealers. The attack was recorded by C2 Oriente cameras.

It looked like a horror movie set, but it was not. In the corner of Magdalena Cobos and María Luisa Martínez, Carmen Serdán colony, in Coyoacán, there was a trail of blood and bullets.
From a golden Toyota Soyna truck, a group of hit men opened fire on everything in front of them. Six people were murdered that morning of December 22 last. This multihomicide is linked to the one that occurred this Sunday in Los Reyes Culhuacán, Iztapalapa, because it was perpetrated by the same people: "Los Molina".
Hours after the murders in Carmen Serdán, the brothers Juan Carlos and Noé Molina Plascencia, as well as two of their gunmen, were arrested in the La Era neighborhood, Iztapalapa. They were celebrating. They played with band music, alcohol and shot in the air with the same rifles they used in the murders.
This is recorded in the file CI-FCI / ACI / UI-3C / D / 100 / 12-2018, initiated by the Office of the Attorney General (PGJ-CDMX) and in the FED / CDMX / IZTAPA / 0017451/2018, of the General Prosecutor's Office of the Republic (FGR).
The euphoria with which parrandeaban alerted to neighbors, because they were in the street, outside the golden Toyota Sienna, license plates MJT-5194 and a black Bora, plates MTD-3779. After the bullets to the air, personnel of the C2 East received the alert and focused its cameras towards where the suspects were.
It was the intersection of Avenida Ermita Iztapalapa and Puente de María, just at 9:56. Preventive police arrived at the scene and after a persecution arrested "Los Molina". They were confiscated an AR-15 rifle, caliber .223 model XM15E2S involved in the six homicides of Carmen Serdán.
Another sicario, Cuauhtémoc Huerta Ruiz was later arrested with a .9mm pistol also linked. The key, discovered investigative agents of Coyoacán, was the Toyota Sienna golden truck, license plates MJT-5194, since it appeared in several crimes between Coyoacán and Iztapalapa.
The Attorney General's Office requested arrest warrants against "Los Molina", but they delayed. The brothers Juan Carlos and Noé, in addition to their two collaborators, paid a bail of 3 thousand pesos each to obtain their freedom.
The reason? The weapons were in their vehicles, but not in possession, according to a judge of control. If they were relating them to a multihomicide, it was still to be seen. The C2 recordings, which caught them shooting in the air, were not clear enough to prove they were.
Thus, when agents of the Attorney General's Office had in their hands the arrest warrants for the murders of Carmen Serdán, "Los Molina" had already disappeared. Almost two months later, the authorities are looking for another multihomicide, the Los Reyes Culhuacán, where 7 people died for the struggle against the narcomenudistas group "Los Panchos", led by José Alejandro Huerta "El Pepe Son of Pancho El Perro"
