In the last 70 days, the Federal Government has intensified the search in Jalisco territory of Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, alias El Mencho, leader of the Jalisco Cartel Nueva Generación (CJNG), capo that on May 1, 2015 ordered the downing of an armored helicopter of the Mexican Area Force that participated in an operation to capture it in the municipality of Villa Purificación. Since then, the Jalisco Operative was put into operation permanently. It is about to be three years old and initially only the Mexican Army participated, but now the Secretariat of the Navy of Mexico (Semar) has joined with more activity. .
From the month of November, that unit was integrated into the work to locate Oseguera Cervantes, who is also the founder of that criminal organization. The sailors arrived at the Sierra de Amula and Costa Sur at the beginning of November and began with various routes, in municipalities such as Autlán de Navarro, El Grullo, Villa Purificación, among others. But since then the activity of the Navy has been notorious in the state.
On November 9 an operation was carried out in the community of El Corcovado, in Autlán de Navarro, which took place outside the José María Mercado primary school; As a result of this, 50 of the 135 students who daily attend that campus, entered into a nervous breakdown. The attention to the minors was settled in an informative part of the Municipal Civil Protection of that day.
In the same way the elements of the Semar faced shots with armed subjects on November 18, at the ranch La Trementina, in Tomatlan. After the shooting the balance was three men and one woman, killed by the staff of that institution.
Another fact in which he emphasized that dependence, was the consummate on December 4, 2017 when performing an operation at the ranch La Esperanza, in the municipality of Tonalá, where José Luis Gutiérrez Valencia, nicknamed Don Chelo or El Ojo de Vidrio, who is also the father-in-law of Rubén Oseguera González, El Menchito; in turn consuegro of Nemesio, El Mencho. In that same event another man also died, like a sailor.
By that same date, the sailors settled in the municipality of Cocula, where the presence of the Single Force was constant, however it is now that federal institution responsible for conducting the various surveillance tours.

Another episode of blood derived from an exchange of bullets was also raised on December 29 at the property called El Portezuelo, in Tamazula de Gordiano, where three men died, while one officer was wounded.
Apparently the Navy is with the magnifying glass put in the municipalities of Cocula, Zacoalco and Tala, since in that week the elements have realized a series of routes by earth and air in those localities.
Last Wednesday, the personnel of the Secretariat of Armed Marine of Mexico, was present in the municipality of Zacoalco de Torres, where even one of the helicopters landed in the main square of that municipality. While on Friday, they were seen in Tala conducting inspections with two helicopters, as well as aboard armored official vans, as part of what is believed to be the monitoring of an operation.
Presumably this Thursday an alleged cell leader of the Jalisco Nueva Generacion Cartel was arrested, which he was carrying out in events in which elements of the Mexican Army died, however, this has not been confirmed by the institution.
If they get him, not saying hell broke loose but it will be ugly. Infighting starts and other cartels were trying to step in or takeover. Or his followers trying to Free him. But maybe it will take more time to catch him. Too many rolling heads ans gov steps in.
I totally agree with you it will take more time but the raids have been constant since November 2017. The people who work for Señor Mencho are extremely loyal to him and will most likely will fight.
Semar is no joke I think we have seen that numerous times like when Don Arturo Beltran Leyva went down. Semar will go hard against anybody no matter the stature and its a joint operation Sedena is also helping Semar.
we just have to wait and see what happens in the upcoming weeks but so far the military has for sure intensified their efforts.
He wouldnt stay in Tala. Visit yes. They should look closer to la mora or los guachis (didnt mention the town, on purpose)
Mencho is safe in these areas because people are so humble here, that they pay him no attention. People in higher power tolarate him because he is good for business in so many ways.
This operation is more like a hail mary before the new federal goverment comes into office. Then mencho is going to relax for a second.
Peñas government really doesnt like him but since peña isnt the one personally going out and looking for him. Theres a hole underworld that allows mencho his freedom for the time being. He also has a real army he can assemble incase a negotiation doesnt work.
But he isnt at the level of the mexican government. Not even close. If they really wanted they could slaughter him. But like i say he is good in so many ways.
I thought it would be one of the Chapitos captured before EPN is out of office. I am changing the prediction to one of Chapitos or Mencho. It's pretty clear that when the government brings out the Marinas, it just got more real. Mencho can easily be caught (or killed), the question is how much room will EPN give the Gringos in Mexico?
