The Mexican police have arrested Mario Ariel “N”, alias the brown cat, presumed head of assassins of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG), along with three of his assassins.

The arrest occurred this Saturday in the town of Rinconada, in Xalapa, Veracruz, when the brown cat, in the company of his accomplices, were traveling in a Toyota Hilux at excessive speed. The elements gave them instructions to stop, but they ignored them.

The incident sparked a chase. According to the testimony of the authorities, they managed to catch up with the criminals in the town of Buenavista. The assassins tried to flee and fired at the official vehicle; however, the police outnumbered them so they managed to intervene.

In the vehicle they transported long firearms, cartridges, chargers, tactical vests, driver’s licenses and cardboard with threatening messages.

Mario Ariel is considered one of the main leaders of the CJNG in Veracruz. According to official information, he is responsible for the murder of the people, found last Saturday in the Municipality Emiliano Zapata.

The bodies, with traces of torture and handcuffs, were abandoned on land that, according to local residents, has been used as a clandestine dump and dumping ground for corpses by criminal groups.

The authorities have not given more information about the incident, although experts from the State Attorney General’s Office and police officers from the Ministry of Public Security have already cordoned off the place. So far, any threat from criminal organizations has been ruled out.

Next to the corpses there was a cardboard with a narco message written by presumed members of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG), who claimed responsibility for the multiple homicide. The notice also launched a warning to the Secretary of the Interior of Veracruz, Eric Cisneros Burgos.

“Here are your people Erick Cisneros Burgos” Secretary of Government of the state of Veracruz. Continue supporting the Sinaloa cartel to ñas goats Vazquez. Your Julian Alvarez Vallejo, Pablo Mendoza, and your “Gallero” fucking treacherous dog. You follow. There we leave their fucking scourges… so you can see your Erica Cisneros Burgos”: That here in the Papaluapan basin they send the four letters, don’t go too far” [sic], was read.

At the same time, a video circulated on social networks of alleged hitmen from the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel warning of a truce between the Sinaloa Cartel and state authorities.

According to official information, the massacre was due to government attacks on organized crime in the region.

In an impromptu press conference, the governor of the state Cuitlahuac Garcia He has said that there will be no impunity for anyone. García said he was confident that the cultural and social development of young people will distance them from organized crime.

The investigation will be deepened by the State Attorney General’s Office. So far, no relative of the Secretary of the Interior has been identified among the victims.

In Veracruz (east of Mexico) mainly operate the drug cartels of The Zetas, the Gulf, CJNG and some redoubts of the Michoacán Family.
