More Tequileros arrested after fleeing Guerrero from the ambush

Mexico News Daily | Saturday, July 15, 2017
The leader of the armed wing of the Tequileros gang, believed to have led an ambush last month that killed four federal agents, has been arrested along with two associates in Morelos.
Pedro Castillo Amaya, who heads the Fuerzas Tequileras, has been linked by the federal Attorney General’s office (PGR) to the June ambush in La Gavia, Guerrero.
Castillo, also known as El Carpi, has also been identified as the right-hand man of Tequileros boss Raybel Jacobo de Almonte.
Both men evidently fled Guerrero after the June 19 ambush and the subsequent deployment of security forces in the region.
Authorities said Jacobo had ordered Castillo to travel to Temixco, where he was to obtain financial resources that would allow both to continue operating their criminal network while on the run.
Intelligence reports generated by the PGR allowed federal forces to locate Castillo, culminating with his arrest by Criminal Investigation Agency (AIC) officers.
Two other men were arrested along with Castillo and the three were in possession of several doses of methamphetamine and scales.
The Fuerzas Tequileras are believed responsible for the wave of violence in the area surrounding the Guerrero municipality of San Miguel Totolapan in the Tierra Caliente region. The gang has been responsible for protecting Jacobo’s family and accomplices in the state of Morelos.
The three men were arrested in Temixco.
The PGR has now made six arrests in relation to the ambush in La Gavia. A seventh criminal was shot dead.
La Gavia, meanwhile, has been left semi-deserted. It was described as a ghost town earlier this month after an estimated 400 residents had fled the violence, an exodus that began in May.
The Attorney General of the State of Guerrero confirmed that Mauro González Hernández (alias "El vago") was arrested, whom authorities identify as the second in command of the structure of the Los Tequileros criminal group, which operates in the Tierra Caliente region of Guerrero.
The head of the department, Xavier Olea Peláez, explained that the arrest was carried out on Thursday after investigations of the Federal Police, in the vicinity of the municipality of Arcelia.
He explained that Mauro González had arrest warrants for four crimes of aggravated kidnapping, and during the afternoon of this Friday he will be taking his preparatory statement, and the decision of the corresponding judge will be awaited.
Dependencies of security and law enforcement hold the Los Tequileros group responsible for the acts of violence that occur in the Tierra Caliente region, mainly the commission of mass kidnappings.
I also read a couple of days ago about Guererro I think on Mexico News Daily that the Governor from 2 or 3 years ago Angel Aguirre (or similar last name) was trying to get back into politics to be some Deputy of some kind and there were all kinds of protests especially from the relatives of the '43'.The relatives of the 43 were relentless on him too.

The federals still did not give details of the arrest but it was confirmed that he would be transferred to Arcelia where he will continue his legal process since he has four arrest warrants for homicide.
A fifth order against him was executed in March 2016 and he was arrested as the probable culprit of the crime of aggravated homicide against the young José Antonio Ceferino Gil.
