One of the two fractured groups of Los Zetas, (a cell of) Vieja Escuela Z (old School Zs) have created an alliance with a cell of del Golfo (Gulf or CDG) Cartel. The purpose of creating the alliance is to combat the Trevino Zetas group known as Cartel del Noreste or CDN, in particular in Nuevo Leon, a state that includes the city of Monterrey.
This information was given to authorities after the arrest of sicario Adrián Martínez Luna, alias “El Chino” or “El Ondeado” 26 years old. He confirms that cells of CDG and Old School Z’s entered into the alliance to take down CDN and gain control of Nuevo Leon, where CDN has successfully advanced.
The arrest was made on October 19th, at Alamo Hotel in San Nicolás de los Garza., a municipality of Monterrey. Martinez admitted to being a sicario boss for the late Javier Morales alias “El Shaggy”, killed on October 9th
by Mexican Marina in Monterrey. Shaggy, a former police in Piedras Negras Coahuila, had taken over as boss of the cell just last August.
Along with the arrest of Martínez, a 22 year old prostitute was arrested named Carolina Tobar Carbajal. Seized in the arrest were several AR-15s assault rifles. A 9mm hand gun and an AK-47 .
Authorities deny the presence of Cartel Unidos in Nuevo Leon, but confirmed their existence, saying their place of operation is in Tamaulipas.
Martínez was released from a Victoria Tamaulipas prison last May after serving 4 ½ years, and was arrested in July with 3 others in a stolen vehicle, but was released. The CDN Zetas took a hit in September with the Texas arrest of their presumed leader Kiko Trevino. Kiko is the son of the oldest member of the Trevino family, Juan, and nephew of Omar and Miguel Trevino, both incarcerated in Mexican Federal Prison. Juan was released a year ago from searing time in Texas, and is rumored to have a leadership role in CDN, based in the state of Coahuila
