Default Sinaloa Drug Cartel May Resort to Deadly Force In US

Quote:
Reporting from Sells, Ariz. -- The reputed head of Mexico's Sinaloa drug cartel is threatening a more aggressive stance against competitors and law enforcement north of the border, instructing associates to use deadly force, if needed, to protect increasingly contested trafficking operations, authorities said.
Quote:
Police and federal agents in Arizona said they had recently received at least two law enforcement alerts focused on Guzman's reported orders that his smugglers should "use their weapons to defend their loads at all costs."

Guzman is thought to have delivered the message personally in early March, during a three-day gathering of his associates in Sonoita, a Mexican town a few miles south of the Arizona border, according to confidential U.S. intelligence bulletins sent to several state and federal law enforcement officials, who discussed them on the condition of anonymity.
I sure as hell hope the writer confused the town name and not the location!

Sonoita is in Arizona, not too far north of the border. (And yes, there's trafficking through Sonoita.)
Sonoyta is in Sonora.

Quote:
But near the Mexico-Arizona border, Robert W. Gilbert, chief patrol agent for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Tucson sector, said confrontations between law enforcement and suspected traffickers -- and among traffickers themselves -- had grown more violent.

A shootout occurred several weeks ago when one group allegedly tried to hijack another's load of drugs on one of the main roads leading north to Phoenix. Two of the suspected traffickers were wounded.

"Times have changed," Gilbert said. "The tactics, the aggressiveness. We're victims of our own success." Now, he said, "they'll fight us."

An internal report from the agency, obtained by the watchdog group Judicial Watch, appears to support Gilbert's assessment. It shows reported weapons-related assaults against border officers rose 24% last fiscal year, compared with 2007, and assaults involving vehicles rose 7% in the same period.

Among areas with sharp increases in assaults was the Tucson corridor, the report said. Mario Escalante, a spokesman for the Border Patrol's Tucson sector, said there were 113 assaults against agents in the sector between October and March, and an additional 26 last month.

Another one bites the dust...

Mexican Navy kills Sinaloa Cartel bodyguard 'El Pancho Chimal'
April 17, 2017 -- Mexico's Navy said security forces killed Francisco Javier "El Pancho Chimal" Zazueta Rosales, a key bodyguard of the eldest son of drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, in a shootout.
Quote:
In a statement published Saturday, the Mexican Navy said the suspect was killed by officers who "repelled an aggression near the municipality of Badiraguato, Sinaloa."


Mexico's Navy said it engaged in a shootout with organized crime members, presumably of the Sinaloa Cartel, on Friday. Javier "El Pancho Chimal" Zazueta Rosales, the bodyguard of drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman's eldest son, was killed.

The Navy said the shootout occurred after officers located an area in which they knew organized crime members held meetings. "Yesterday, naval elements went to the area, where they were attacked by alleged offenders" that led to the shootout, the Navy said in a statement. "It should be mentioned that, during the confrontation, no naval element was injured."

After the shootout, Navy officers found several weapons, including a rocket launcher.

Mexico arrests alleged Sinaloa cartel financial operator
Aug. 1, 2017 -- Authorities in Mexico arrested Nahum Abraham Sicairos Montalvo, an alleged financial operator for the Sinaloa cartel wanted by the United States, Mexico's Attorney General's office said.
Quote:
The office said Monday that federal agents detained Nahum Abraham Sicairos Montalvo, also known as El Quinceañero, for extradition to the United States.


Police arrested Nahum Abraham Sicairos Montalvo and another suspect at a residence in Atizapán de Zaragoza.

Sicairos Montalvo and an alleged associate identified as Filiberto N. were arrested at a residence in Atizapán de Zaragoza. The associate had 20 "doses" of a drug with characteristics similar to methamphetamine, officials said.

In addition to the extradition request, Sicairos Montalvo had an Interpol red notice, meaning he was wanted by an international tribunal.

FBI lookin' for another El Chapo...

FBI offers $5M for info on Mexican cartel leader
Sept. 27, 2017 -- The FBI on Wednesday said it is offering $5 million for information leading to the arrest of the head of a drug cartel in Mexico's Sinaloa state.
Quote:
Fausto Isidro Meza-Flores, also known as "El Chapo Isidro," was charged in a federal indictment on narcotics and firearm violations.

The FBI said Meza-Flores leads the Meza-Flores Transnational Criminal Organization, a drug cartel based in Sinaloa state. He also is accused of previously being a high-ranking member of the Beltran-Leyva Transnational Criminal Organization. "The Meza-Flores TCO is allegedly responsible for the possession, distribution, and importation of large quantities of heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine, and marijuana into the U.S., and has predominately controlled drug distribution in parts of Sinaloa, southern Sonora, and Nayarit, Mexico," the FBI said in a news release.


Fausto Isidro Meza-Flores allegedly leads the Meza-Flores drug cartel in Mexico's Sinaloa state.

The FBI described Meza-Flores as 5 feet, 6 inches tall, 160 pounds with dark brown hair and brown eyes. He was born in Mexico on June 19, 1982. The FBI believes he is living in Mexico and said he was considered to be the "right hand man" of Alfredo Beltran-Leyva, the leader of the organization bearing his name, prior to his arrest in 2008.
