January DEA report - or is it?

leChef
I have reason to believe some of the stuff presented on this Argentinian news outlet, Infobae, is just copied from BB. I tried to find the so-called DEA intelligence report from January 2020 which the article is based upon, but no luck. Is there a DEA report at all?

A new report by the Administration for Drug Control (DEA) presents the panorama that Mexico has faced in the fight against organized crime in the early days of 2020. The document, from the Phoenix Field Division, highlights to Tamaulipas, Coahuila, Chihuahua, Guanajuato, Michoacan, Tabasco and Quintana Roo as the red points for this year.

The 17-page document compiles some of the events that have marked these parts of the Republic, as well as a profile of the people who currently control some of these places. This is what it says:

Tamaulipas:
His research indicates that currently in Reynosa three subjects identified as “Mono”, “Mimi” and “Mierda” are in charge, all linked to the Gulf of Mexico cartel (CDG). The first is identified as subordinate of the "Primito", who at the end of 2019 resumed power in the area and put him as commander.

The DEA document also mentions "Chuy," who would serve as the cartel's accountant. He was allegedly recruited by "Betin the Fearful," a local criminal from the town of San Fernando and who would have been imprisoned with Osiel Cárdenas Guillén in the Matamorors prison in 1994. He is credited with building the San Fernando square for CDG together to Ezequiel Cárdenas Rivera, also known as “El Junior ”

Coahuila:
The DEA report reports the confrontation between police and hitmen of the Northeast cartel. At least eight suspected members of the criminal organization died in this exchange of bullets on January 9, 2020.

The confrontation took place on Thursday afternoon in the municipality of Guerrero when members of the State Police of Coahuila repelled an armed attack by these members of the Northeast Cartel, formerly called Los Zetas.

Four of the alleged criminals died at the scene of the attack and the figure rose to eight after police found four others at various points in this town. After the shooting, the authorities organized an operation to locate other armed men who escaped.

According to the DEA, an armed and wounded man fled across Rio Grande to the United States. Agents from the Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC) of the Carrizo Springs and Eagle Pass South stations responded together with the air assets of the Laredo Division of Air and Maritime Operations of the Office of Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The agents located a trail of blood that led to the injured criminal.

Chihuahua:
On January 6, the Juárez authorities arrested one of the most wanted criminals on the border. This is Jesús Alfredo Martínez Mendoza, aka “El Fredy” or “El Fende” , who is identified as one of the main heroin distributors for the “Barrio Azteca” gang, which has partnered with La Línea.

The criminal was number 6 on the list of the 10 most wanted criminals in the region of El Paso, Texas-Juarez. He was arrested when he planned to enter the United States illegally with a backpack containing almost 5 kilos of heroin (11 pounds). Supposedly, he was the head of the "Old Guard" faction of the Aztecs.

In this regard, the DEA document indicates the rupture between this band and La Línea, who were previously allies. The rivalry was led by Martínez and René Gerardo Santana Garza, "El 300".

La Linea selected “El 300” as the new gang leader without consulting with Martínez, an old member of the organization. And Santana was suspected of ordering the death of Juan Arturo “El Genio” Padilla Juárez, who was killed in a fight inside a prison near Chihuahua City in August 2018.

Guanajuato:
It was on January 11 when hit men from the so-called Elite Group of the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel (CJNG) were about to end the life of José Antonio Yépez Ortiz “El Marro”, leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima Cartel , who attended the Wedding of his sister Karem Elizabeth Yépez Ortiz , in the community of Pelavacas, located in Guanajuato.

According to the DEA report, which cites local media, "El Marro" managed to escape. However, his sister and fiance, known as "The Squidward," died in the attack . To this were added four wounded.

Two days after the murder of Karem and "El Calamardo", two women appeared dead in Pelavacas, whose bodies showed signs of violence . Although the authorities have not related the two facts, the murder of women is striking. For these facts, the US authorities indicate that the population should avoid the area.

Michoacán:
The report on Michoacán highlights the murder of María Guadalupe López Esquivel aka "La Catrina" , who died on January 10 during a confrontation with members of the National Guard . Lieutenant of the Jalisco Cartel Nueva Generación, was named as responsible for the ambush of state police in Aguililla , on October 14.

He died on January 10 in a state hospital as a result of a hypovolemic shock , due to a bullet in the neck. According to the reports, the woman was in a safe house that members of the Ministry of Public Security, National Guard and military were preparing to dismantle. Upon the arrival of the authorities, the hitmen began the fray against the agents.

The DEA report also reports the confrontation between the Jalisco Cartel and Los Viagras on January 11 , with a balance of three people killed and several more injured.

The report suggests that the Zucuirán cartel, led by Miguel Ángel Gallegos Godoy "Los Migueladas" , tried to seize the square of Gabino Barrera Estrada, local leader of Los Viagras and brother of the mayor of that municipality, Rodimiro Barrera Estrada. considers a strategic point for the development of methamphetamine .

Tabasco:
In a very brief description, the report recalls that in the town of Villa Parrila there was a man executed and maniatado, with a narcomensaje . The incident occurred on December 13, so far his identity is unknown.

Quintana Roo:
On January 11, three human heads were located next to a narcomanta in the municipality of Benito Juárez, Cancún. With this finding, there were 14 executions on 11 days of 2020 in Cancun.

A white blanket was hung on the site in which threats were written against the Deputy Attorney General of the State Attorney General's Office in the North Zone, Julio César Moreno Orendain, as well as Antonio Villalobos Carrillo, State Legal Counsel. Mention was also made among those threatened by the Municipal Undersecretary of Public Security, Nesguer Ignacio Vicencio Méndez , and six other persons.

I haven't seen it posted on the official site, ordinarily they were released in November, from 2016 to 2018, but a 2019 was never posted.

I wonder why they would be fabricating it. I recognize a mistake I made on the Gulf Cartel thread on the forum, assuming Chuy would be the same as Chuy 7, current plaza boss in San Fernando, and they copied it bluntly in their article.
