José Vázquez Villagrana, “El Jabalí” captured

The chief of Mexico’s anti-drug operations, Ramón Pequeño García, informed that José Vázquez Villagrana, “El Jabalí”, presumed operator of Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán for the transportation of cocaine from Central America to the United States, was detained by the federal police in Sonora. He specified that “El Jabalí” trafficked tons of cocaine from Colombia to Chiapas and Oaxaca, then transported it by aircraft into Sonora. These aircrafts then landed on ranches owned by him, in Santa Ana and Magdalena de Kino, after which they were sent to the United States.

Pequeño García commented that “El Jabali” worked with now deceased Arturo Beltrán Leyva, “El Barbas”, until last year when he decided to part with that organization after they made an alliance with “Los Zetas”. Vázquez Villagrana continued to operate alongside Arturo Beltrán Leyva after the arrest of Alfredo Beltrán Leyva, however, around midyear of 2009 differences arose between them after the alliance with “Los Zetas” was formed, motivating him to change commands and work alongside “El Chapo” Guzman. The arrest took place yesterday in Santa Ana, in an operation resulting from investigations that begun after securing an arsenal in April last year, in the same city.
