Grillonautas Threatened by Los Correa Cartel

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Video translation is as follows:

Various media have documented the existence of a new cartel in the state of Michoacan. Authorities identified the emergence of the new drug cartel. Whose criminal structure is based on a network that for 2 decades has been operating the clandestine logging of forests in the eastern part of the region.

The information was released by the international news agency EFE, which states that the Michoacan Secretariat of Public Security detected the criminal activities of this organization in the municipalities of Hidalgo, Zitacuaro, Ocampo, Indaparapeo. Which have various mountainous and wooded areas.

For this reason, in the Government of Michoacán, led by Silvano Aureoles Conejo, last February deployed a police operation, with the support of the Mexican Army and the National Guard, to detect “drug camps” and cells of this criminal organization.

After different operations, the arrest of 310 people for different crimes has been achieved, and the seizure of 81 vehicles with a report of theft and 42 assault rifles and pistols. And although the media refer to the Los Correa cartel as the new cartel in Michoacán, the truth is that this criminal organization has been operating in the state for many years.

This according to the testimony of several inhabitants who denounce that they have been extorted by this criminal group for years. The media that have reported on this criminal organization refer that the Los Correa Cartel is headed by Daniel Correa Velásquez alias El Tigre.

Whose family of his began controlling the clandestine logging of forests in eastern Michoacán. Expanding its activities to the production of marijuana, and synthetic drugs, extortions, and other crimes. They currently maintain an alliance with the criminal group La Familia Michoacana and have joined the war waged by the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación and Carteles Unidos for control of the state of Michoacán.

On February 23 of this year, 90 Grados reported that the Los Correa cartel was extorting money from every inhabitant of Ciudad Hidalgo. They reported they were supported by Medardo Hernández Verás alias Lalo Mantecas or El 100, leader of the Michoacan Family in this entity and the State of Mexico.

90 Grados reported that the cartel of Los Correa has made an appearance in the homes of the inhabitants demanding 1,500 pesos per home, to continue their armed struggle in eastern Michoacán. Hitmen from Los Correa visit the communities every week. And from its inhabitants they have demanded 1,500 pesos per house, stating that it’s to buy weapons, the Michoacan media added citing the testimony of an inhabitant in that region.

At the end of last February an armed criminal cell of 20 hitmen patrolled and installed check points on the Morelia-Ciudad Hidalgo Federal Highway, also known as Morelia-Mil Cumbres Highway.

The video that you see on your screen was how we spread the news. After its dissemination, we received the following message where, with a bit of misspelling, they threatened us with the following: “Legal action will be taken against this channel and their YouTube channel will be completely erased, including their followers.” They also gave us, “24 hours, if the photo or video has not been erased, legal action will begin against any property signed by Grillonautas.”

In Michoacán, the cartels of Los Correa, La Nueva Familia Michoacana, Los Viagras, Los Caballeros Templarios, Cartel de Los Reyes, Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG), Cartel de Tepalcatepec, among other criminal cells operate.

In addition, in some regions of this state there are self-defense groups, armed civilians who protect their territory from the onslaught of the cartels, although there are suspicions that some of them also belong to criminal gangs.
