MEXICO CITY (approved) .- The Attorney General of Justice (PGJ) of Michoacan reported Monday they had arrested Daniel Marin Chavez Pelon Marin , considered one of the major criminals of the cienega de Chapala, linked to the criminal group called Los Viagras .
According to preliminary reports, Pelon Marin was located and arrested in a farm located on the Morelia-Quiroga road, where he allegedly hid after the authorities focused their search in the region of Zamora, its main area of influence.
"In operation, #PGJE arrested DMCh., Who is linked to wrongful acts that has occurred in western Michoacan," said the PGJ on its Twitter account. They added: "Research work and intelligence allowed this operational action that took place in the city of Morelia."
According to official reports, Marin Chavez was attributed to various acts of violence in Zamora, including the execution of six young people this past January, after they were taken in Tanhuato. The bodies were found days later in the town of Ecuandureo.
Also in January, the attorney general of Michoacán Martin Godoy said Marin Chavez is close to Jose Carlos Sierra Santana "La Sopa" , one of the ringleaders of Los Viagras, and said his group disputed for several months over the territory with another criminal cell known as Los Guerreros, related to Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG).
Re: One of Los Viagras leaders arrested in Morelia
Could be a translation issue ? Here's the original Spanish if someone proficient in Spanish can verify:
"También en enero, el procurador de Justicia de Michoacán Martín Godoy dijo que Marín Chávez es cercano a José Carlos Sierra Santana La Sopa, uno de los cabecillas de Los Viagras, y precisó que su grupo disputaba desde hace varios meses el control del territorio con otra célula delictiva conocida como Los Guerreros, relacionada con el Cártel Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG)."
They were but apparently had a falling out. When "El Galivan" was arrested, I read that Los Viagras were going by the name "Sangre Nueva Guerrerense" and in conflict with the CJNG affiliated group "Guardia Guerrerense".
