Mexican security forces arrest No. 2 man in drug cartel

By AFP | Jan. 31, 2014 at 08:01pm

GUADALAJARA—Mexican security forces arrested the alleged number two in a major drug cartel on Thursday in a military sweep in the country’s second largest city Guadalajara, an official said.

The official, who asked not to be identified, said the suspect was Ruben Oseguera Gonzalez, the son of the leader of the Jalisco New Generation cartel and considered the group’s number two.

Backed by a helicopter, dozens of soldiers sealed streets and raided properties in the Zapopan section of Guadalajara, a city of 4.4 million people in western Mexico.

In apparent response, armed men set fire to at least three vehicles—two buses and a milk truck—in the south of the city.

“It’s an operation against organized crime, an investigation we’ve been conducting. We have some people detained,” a military commander who requested anonymity told AFP.

The cartel operates in the state of Jalisco, of which Guadalajara is the capital.

According to official reports, the suspect’s father, Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, also known as “El Mencho,” controls Jalisco New Generation and its drug trafficking along the Pacific coast, particularly at the port of Manzanillo where cocaine and the chemicals to make it are transported.

Jalisco New Generation is engaged in a heated turf battle with the Knights Templar cartel, which has dominated the neighboring state of Michoacan’s drug trade in recent years.

Michoacan has been the scene of an unfolding showdown between the government, vigilante groups, and the Knights Templar cartel.
