The medic tells El Kevin not to move because the leg wound will open, and encourages him to try and relax, that the pain will soon subside.  He was just given a pain injection.

Martin Juarez Campos pretended to be a CJNG commander under the name of "El M Juarez"
A Mexican youngster was sent to the maximum security Puente Grande jail, after impersonating a member from a dangerous cartel through facebook, where he frequently published pictures and threatening messages.

He called himself "El M Juarez", and pretended to be part of Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion, a cartel that recently became dangerous and powerful.

According to the Fiscalia Del Estado de Jalisco, his hobby was to entertain his 2000 followers with violent pictures.

In one of his last publications before being detained on Saturday October 3, he presented a gift-box that had a handgun bathed in gold, with fake diamonds.

In the message he claimed to thank his "boss", El Mencho, by making a reference to the leader of CJNG, Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes.

However, after being detained, authorities found out that he is actually a lift truck operator and a neighbor of Guadalajara, and that he didn't have any relation to a member of organized crime or drug traffickers.

According to him, it was exciting to pretend to be a part of this groups because they provoke in him a sense of ecstasy, but his association was limited to an online world of fantasy.

The pictures and the videos were taken from the internet and then he proceeded to add a watermark them in order to make them appear legit.

Now he is currently being processed for "provocation of a crime and relation to a crime" and he is expected to be imprisoned  1 or 6 months.

He has been assigned to a judge and he is currently in the maximum security jail of Puente Grande, Jalisco, where he might be able to fulfill his long life dream of being incarcerated with some of the most dangerous drug traffickers of the country. 

Sons of Caro Quintero accused of laundering 130 million of pesos

Original article available at ZETA Translated by El Wachito

Since 2014 the PGR has been investigating companions and friends of the sons of Rafael Caro Quintero. The investigations have led to the discovery of more businesses involved in money laundering than those discovered by US authorities. According to a bank official from Guadalajara, the last time the US department of treasury investigated was between 2012-2013.

It's been three years and three months since the US Department of Treasury added to the list of leaders and money laundering business, the names of friends and partners of drug lord Rafael Caro Quintero, and the Mexican government has already secured 19 bank accounts of 16 businesses and physical persons, who between the years of 2012 and 2013 performed bank transactions of 130 millions of pesos.

This are the results of the investigation PGR/SIEDO/UEIORPIFAM/AP/049/2014  and how the legal immunity promoted by the legal representatives of the businesses that have connections to the family members of the Cartel of Guadalajara was managed.

To this day, some of the businesses who were being investigated and got their assets frozen or confiscated bank accounts, the majority located in the Metropolitan area of Guadalajara, have obtained favorable legal immunity, however they are still being investigated.

The accusations

In June of 2013, the office of Treasury of the United States, through the Office of Foreign Asset Control(OFAC), sanctioned 18 persons and 15 businesses accused of being part of the criminal net of Caro Quintero, who American authorities have not forgive for the murder of DEA agent, Enrique Camarena Salazar in 1985; during that time, Caro was not detained in Puente Grande.

During the accusations made by the American government it was added to the list, a kind of species which make a resemblance to "Boss of American enemies", to the sons, ex-wife and close friends of the Sinaloan drug trafficker. They are accused of being part of a team of individuals who are involved in investing Caro's fortune in legitimate businesses and in the real estate of the city of Guadalajara.

Adan Szubin, director of the OFAC, claimed that with the help of Mexican authorities "we will keep pointing out the drug traffickers, their money laundering activities, and those who help them in their illicit activities".

The people accused are Hector Rafael (Olympic athlete), Roxana Elizabeth, Henoch Emilio and Mario Yibram, all of them with the last name Caro Elenes(sons of Caro); also their mother Maria Elizabeth Elenes Lerma was added to the list.  Also mention by the authorities were Denisse Buenrostro Villa, Humberto Vargas Correa and the brothers with the last name Sanchez Garza, sanchez barba and Sanchez Gonzalez, involved with Caro Quintero and Juan Jose Esparragoza Moreno "El Azul".

The accused business are; ECA Energéticos, S.A. de C.V.; El Baño de María, S. de R. L. de C.V.; Zapatos de Pronto, SAB de C.V.; Hacienda Las Limas, S.A.; Grupo Fracsa, SAB de C.V.; Dbardi, S.A.; Grupo Constructor Segundo Milenio, S.A. de C.V.; Restaurante Bar Los Andariegos; and  Piscilanea, S.A., along others.

In October 31 of 2013, the OFAC added to their listing another group of businesses involved with Caro Elenes in Jalisco and Sinaloa: Arrendadora Turín, S.A.; Barsat, S.A. de C.V.; Desarrolladora San Francisco del Rincón, S.A. de C.V.; Dinermas, S. de R.L. de C.V.; Energéticos Vago, S.A. de C.V.; Estación de Servicio Atemajac, S.A. de C.V.; Fortanas, S. de R.L. de C.V.; and Grupo Barsterra, S.A. de C.V. 

Other accused entities are Grupo Espanol Elcar, S.A. de C.V.; Inmobiliaria Prominente, S.A. de C.V.; Minerales Nueva Era, S.A. de C.V.; Minerales Nueva Generación, S.A. de C.V.; Nueva Terra, S. de R.L. de C.V.; Operadora Engo, S.C.; Petro London, S. de R.L. de C.V.; Petro Mas, S. de R.L. de C.V.; Promi Fel, S. de R.L. de C.V.; Servicio y Operadora Santa Ana, S.A. de C.V.; Taxi Aéreo Nacional de Culiacán, S.A.; y Villas del Colli, S.A. de C.V.

The investigation

The actions of the Americans created an eco that the Mexican authorities could not ignore, and the Head "B" of the Direcion General de Procesos Legales, of the Financial Intelligence Unit (UIF), part of the Secretaria de Hacienda Y Credito Publico (SDCP), submitted a demand on 7 February of 2014 through the Procudaruria General de la Republica (PGR).

In a ministerial agency by the Unidad Especializada en Investigacion de Operaciones de Procedencia Ilicita, Falsification y Alteracion de Moneda (UEIORPIFAM), of the Subprocuraduria Especializada en Investigacion de Delincuencia Organizada (SEIDO), the investigation PGR/SEIDO/UEIORPIFAM/AP/049/2014 was developed. 

The first action conducted by the agent responsible for the seizure was to submit an order to the bank institutions to secure the accounts, checks and inversions under the name of the persons pointed out by government entities.

To the surprise of the UIF, they found the names of other businesses who were not under investigation but appeared under the same bank accounts as other businesses who were previously pointed out by American and Mexican authorities. 

In that manner, in February 2014, the agent representing the Ministerio Publico de la Federacion was able to order financial institutions, through the Comision Nacional Bancaria i de Valores (CNBV), to proceed to secure 19 bank accounts and the money deposited in them through 16 businesses. 

The accusation was based on the fact that the identified  individuals involved, and those who were not fully identified, "was highly possible that the introduction of illicit money in the financial system was made through personal bank accounts of persons who had a relationship with the cartel"

According to the operations conducted by the UIF, "it was observed the the investment was made at a really short term, with the intent to hide the origin and the final destination of the money".

Filemón is back home after kidnapping

Posted: 07 Oct 2016 08:48 AM PDT

Posted by DD for Borderland Beat from Milenio and Mexico News Daily

 Statistics indicate that kidnapping in Mexico is on the rise.  Most of those do not have a happy ending.  

Filemón is an exception that.  He was the victim of a kidnapping in Motul, Yucatán.  After his disappearance his companion and friend, Gilberth Canul Cupul,  received a demand via the mobile phone application WhatsApp for a ransom of 1,000 pesos for his return.

The kidnapper began at 1,000 pesos and then reduced his demand to 500. “I offered him 300, then 400, but he didn’t want it,” said Canul. 

So he reported the crime to local authorities and began searching for the missing donkey.

It was found in the possession of Luis Rodrigo Tec Chalé, who claimed the animal had entered his property.

Canul now has Filemón back and has withdrawn his charge of theft.

He said he didn’t wish to make an ocean out of a glass of water.

Acuña Coahuila: Huevo Treviño flees from Z-Renegados, leaves loot behind

Posted: 07 Oct 2016 01:28 PM PDT

As BB reported in the post regarding the arrest of Kiko Treviño, Coahuila remains the home base state for the Treviño led faction of the Zetas, calling themselves “Cartel del Noreste”.(CDN).

While Nuevo Laredo is the most important plaza for CDN, it is Coahuila where they have generally found protection and security.  

BB wrote last month, that people on the ground in Coahuila reported key figures taking refuge in Acuña, and CDN re-establishing training camps in the hills adjacent to the municipality.  Kiko Treviño was said to spend time in Acuna as well as leader Huevo Trevino.   

Comments sent in by BB followers today as well as a report posted by Frontera al Rojo Vivo speaks of an event that occurred in Acuña, including photo evidence.  

Here is what is said to have gone down:

In this message left behind talks of the grndmother and how they did not kill her
Huevo Treviño was staying at his grandmother’s home in Acuña.  Other family members were in the home, when a group of former CDN members, known as Comandantes Renegados Zetas (Zeta renegades) came to the home intending to capture Treviño.

Treviño somehow gets away before the door is broken through, leaving his family and grandmother to fend for themselves against the killers.

He also left behind an ample amount of money.

Treviño’s grandmother must have been scared out of her mind, but “The Zeta Renegados” left Treviño “abuelita” without harm. 

But of course they absconded with the loot.

Acuna’s presidente (Mayor) Lenin “Lenny” Perez is a second term Mayor, who was not in office for a term in-between.  

The word is he is a Zeta-Mayor, for allegedly assisting the cartel, being in collusion in his first term, and staying loyal to the Treviño’s in his second and current term.  Acuña is a border city on the Bravo side of the Rio Grande, with Del Rio Texas on the opposite side.

In other Trevino news, there were rumors of a possible escape attempt of Omar and Miguel Trevino, (Z40 and Z42) from Altiplano Prison.  It was clarified later by prison officials that there was no attempt, but the brothers are being relocated due to information of  escape plans.
