A feared crime lord has assembled his troops as well as also is usually preparing to wage war against El Chapo’s sons.
Rafael Caro Quintero is usually wanted by the FBI for ordering the notorious murder of special agent Enrique Camarena in 1985.
Former leader of the today-defunct Guadalajara Cartel, Quintero was released 28 years into a 40-year prison sentence on a technicality.
The 68-year-old – who featured in Netflix show Narcos – has today begun recruiting hitmen as well as also formed the Caborca Cartel, Argentinian news website Infobae reports.
He has also allied himself with former members of El Chapo’s Sinaloa Cartel inside northern state of Sonora, contested for its drug trafficking routes into the US.
Security expert Dr Robert J Bunker, Director of Research & Analysis, C/O Futures, LLC, believes the force poses a serious threat to Chapo’s sons Jesus Alfredo Guzman, Ivan Archivaldo Guzman as well as also Ovidio Guzman Lopez.
They have led the cartel since their dad’s extradition as well as also imprisonment last year, as well as also are vying for power with his ex-partner Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada.
Dr Bunker told the Daily Star: “in which open street war today taking place between old school narcos…as well as also the “Princes of the Empire” – Los Chapitos as well as also their retainers – suggest in which in which threat is usually very real.
“Additionally, we have Ismael ‘El Mayo’ Zambada involved inside Sinaloa Cartel power struggle with Los Chapitos.
“the idea might make political sense for ‘El Mayo’s’ faction to side with the Caborca Cartel at in which point, adding another front to in which internal conflict.”
In June, 12 people were found dead between the city of Caborca as well as also the town of Sonoyta after Chapo’s sons encroached on Quintero’s territory.
In May, an ice box with human remains was found inside city, warning the Caborca Cartel was there to “clean up”.
Dr Bunker believes the conflict could spread throughout Mexico.
He added: “The Caborca Cartel…might actively seek to not only carve out their own territories although ensure they have adequate trafficking revenues via which to improve their numbers of gunmen as well as also weapons as well as also to bribe local as well as also state Mexican officials to side with their faction.”
He believes the organisation may have “low-to-mid hundreds of gunmen”.
However, they could expand “into the high hundreds/low thousands when allies are factored in”.
Sinaloa Cartel troops led by El Mayo are currently battling for territory with the Jalisco Generation fresh Cartel (CJNG).
Earlier in which month, they announced their arrival inside western Mexican state of Nayarit – dominated by the CJNG.
In disturbing footage, gangsters announced the beginning of “Operation MZ” as well as also vowed “justice”, even threatening local government officials, Sin Embargo reported.
The letters MZ refer to Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada, who has taken charge of the cartel since El Chapo’s extradition as well as also imprisonment last year.
inside video, they reference Daniel Saucedo – brother-in-law of the state’s governor – as well as also Rodrigo Benitez Perez, Director of Ministerial Investigation of the Nayarit Prosecutor’s Office.
The gunmen warned their “heads will roll”.
