Federal agents nab Jalisco Cartel capo

July 18, 2013

An alleged leading member of the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion (CJNG) was arrested in Guadalajara on July 10, the Federal Attorney General revealed on Thursday.

Victor Hugo Delgado Renteria, alias “El Tornado,” was detained by agents from the Department of Defense (Sedena) in the Bugambilias neighborhood on the southwestern perimeter of the metropolitan area, said Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam.

Delgado stands accused of killing 11 men who were found beheaded in August 2008 in Yucatan. He was arrested at a property on Circuito de las Flores Oriente and Remanso de los Lirios, one of three buildings in Zapopan and Tlajomulco to be raided by Sedena agents.

Another suspected member of the CJNG, Domingo Medina Mogel, alias “El Mingo,” was also detained. Both Delgado and Medina were previously arrested by soldiers in March 2010 at a clandestine drug lab in Cocula, Jalisco, but the pair were released again within months.
