Yeah, I don't see any way possible this cocaine belongs to either Los Zetas or the CDG. I don't think either cartel moves that kind of weight anymore especially in a single shipment to Europe. I don't even think they have access to that kind of weight in single shipments. That's the kind of weight that gets moved over quite a few months, nowadays. Yes, both cartels have had connections to Europe but that was in the past. The movers-and-shakers of both cartels just aren't around anymore. It's possible that it's one of the two's cocaine but that possibility is rather sparse. It's much more likely coming from someone affiliated or loosely affiliated with CDS.

The US and Europe's consumption has changed over the last 20-30 years. While cocaine use has decreased steadily, methamphetamine use has skyrocketed in the US. It's the opposite in Europe, cocaine use has risen dramatically. The cartels have adapted and are now pushing much more pure cheap meth to America. Their profit margin's are astronomical compared to cocaine because they don't have to import the finished product but also because methamphetamine is so addicting. The cartels are sending more cocaine to Europe to meet the demand, but also because the average price of a kilo doubles in Europe compared to what it fetches in New York City. Many of these DTO's are just as savvy and complex as any Fortune 500 company.

Wow that sure is a lot of dough to lose.What would 6 tons be worth by K s sold at Europe prices?Is there enough 000s? That's very innovative in coal.It would probably pass through the X-ray machines and dogs if properly sealed.Must be quite elaborate piecing the coal together to get it just right not to say very time consuming but problem was they were under investigation otherwise that would have been a foolproof shipment I would think.

I've heard that the Sinaloa kingpins sometimes combine their shipments for security and insurance.  So it's possible that many people owned a different part of that shipment.

Also I have to agree that it's doubtful CDG or Zetas move that kind of weight anymore, if ever for the Zetas.

I highly doubt its any of the Mex cartels. Its too much product at one time to trust to the middlemen of the cocaine business, who of late are having problems with military actions/ arrests of leadership.

It probably belongs to a Peruvian/Colombian group with contracted  sales to a number of client groups. And the Golden Lion brand has nothing to do with Mexico. In fact, the Double Lion brand means an (Asian) high quality level of narcotics.

This is not to say a portion of the coca wasn't contracted out to a Mex cartel but the whole belonging to one is a ridiculous assessment. Also, 7 tons was confiscated in Colombia back in April.

I'm not sure why you would be surprised that the half-dozen or so families from Culiacan who traffic coke would be buying $15-$20 million worth of product. These guys sell over a billion dollars worth every year.

It also sounds like the Mexicans they arrested are connected to Sinaloa.
