Zacatecas - The Gulf Cartel has supposedly merged with CJNG
by Juan Castro
The Secretary of Public Security, Ismael Camberos Hernández, on Monday, during his appearance before local deputies, announced that, due to its geographical position, Zacatecas has been, since the beginning of the drug transfer, strategic for all the cartels that have dedicated themselves to this activity.
You now have a substance that has come to revolutionize drug use in the world, which is fentanyl.
It is a substitute for opioids and is a synthetic opioid that is made or manufactured with supplies that are arriving from Asia, specifically from China, and that arrive through the ports of Manzanillo and Lázaro Cárdenas.
Its production area is the Sierra Madre Occidental, from Sinaloa, Nayarit, Jalisco, Michoacán, Guerrero and Oaxaca.
One of the shortest routes for this product, when it has already been synthesized in those clandestine laboratories that are in the Sierra, pass through Zacatecas, is Highway 54 and the closest borders of the United States to the producing areas are the borders from Coahuila, Tamaulipas and Nuevo León.
That makes Zacatecas especially a state since a dispute over two large cartels fighting the fentanyl market in the United States.
Fentanyl is one hundred times more powerful than morphine and 50 times more than heroin and its production is not legal in Mexico.
Regarding its illicit presentations, he pointed out that it is mixed with different types of heroin to adulterate it, cocaine mixed with fentanyl has been detected, it has also been found in sweets that contain this substance for sale to minors.
The criminal groups that are dedicated to its production require an investment of $ 2,700 to make one kilo.
Upon its release, this kilo costs $ 20,000, but if it is a criminal group like the ones in Mexico, which also have operators in the United States, a kilo can make a profit of $ 200,000.
It is being said that with five kilos they have a profit of a million dollars, that is why this drug, its production and sale is so much fought.
In the state of Zacatecas there would be marijuana fields, drug routes, cocaine, glass, and the drug routes of the state of Jalisco, especially the manufacture of synthetic drugs, including fentanyl.
It is why the five criminal groups, which is the Gulf Cartel, the Northeast Cartel, the Sinaloa Cartel, the Taliban Cartel and the Jalisco Cartel, are fighting in the state.
There are two very powerful groups: the Sinaloa Cartel and the Jalisco Cartel are fighting for that fentanyl market, that is why the Sinaloa Cartel has been making inroads into Zacatecan territory from Durango, from Jalisco, because they have a fight for the territory with the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel.
He stressed that today, the Gulf Cartel has already become part of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel in Zacatecas, and the Gulf Cartel is no longer in the state.
For this reason, there has been an increase in intentional homicides linked to organized crime, it cannot be left aside that 89 percent of intentional homicides in the state are related to criminal struggles through the territory.
There is a great increase in this year of intentional homicides, but this is what can explain it, the iron fight that is being carried out for the control of its production points, after the transfer routes to reach the market in a faster way, which is the United States border.
I'm trying to find the article I read, but not all that long ago I read about a manta in Zacatecas that seems to be tied to all this. I believe it was signed by CDN and basically accused a member of CDG of joining CJNG. I want to say it was F35 but I may be wrong.
Re: Zacatecas - The Gulf Cartel has supposedly merged with CJNG
"Disagreement between CDN and CDG because of handing over Fresnillo to CJNG, they are not in agreement that 'F25' has given the proof of love to 'El Jardinero' Audias Flores Silva, we all know that El F25 is 'el gato' of Audias Flores, and for some time kidnapped people and extort them in order to divide up the ill gotten gains since El Jadinero has various wars and the theft and extortion in Nayarit is not enough and has to kidnap in other states, some history: Audias Flores Silva "El Flores" or "El Jardinero" born in Huetamo Michoacan in his initial stages worked in Tamaulipas with the Gulf Cartel. Those of the Gulf Cartel passed me trying to hang a manta and were detained by state police, identified like people of El Marrano F25.
