The Mexican Attorney General’s Office announced the capture of Jose Oscar Garcia Ramirez, known as “El Cabus”, head of the Cartel Jalisco New Generation (CJNG) – an offshott of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The arrest of the 40 years old narco chieftain was carried out in the vicinity of Tamazula de Gordian, in the state of Jalisco. CJNG is a baby in the world of narcos existing for only 5 years, created by former members of the Sinaloa cartel run by the infamous Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman. This cartel is run by a former police officer Nemesio “El Mencho” Oseguera with El Cabus as his co-chief. Their specialty is police corruption and ruthless violence - strapping sticks of dynamite to their victims limbs is one of their calling cards.
Mexican authorities noted “The detainee is identified as likely responsible for running a drug distribution network and coordinating communications for a criminal organization with a presence in that entity.” Authorities also noted that El Cabus organized the theft of hydrocarbon in the area where he was captured. Oil theft from pipelines in Mexico is big business and typically occurs in narco hotspots.
The PGR noted the capture happened without a single shot being fired. At the time of El Cabus’ arrest drugs, communication equipment and illegal vehicles were seized.
