Chihuahua state prosecutor denies nexus between drug gangs
An apparent nexus between the Juarez cartel and the Jalisco Nueva Generacion Cartel does not exist, according to the Chihuahua state Procuradoria del Estado (PGE).
Cesar Augusto Peniche was quoted in El Diario de Parral Mexican news daily, saying that his office had not detected "a piece of information" that would indicate a nexus between La Linea and Jalisco Nuevo Generacion.
Peniche's denial likely stems from a news item which appeared in the online edition of El Heraldo de Chihuahua Sunday, which reported a meeting between the Jalisco Nuevo Generacion Cartel and La Linea drug cartel. The sources for the report were anonymous, but no direct indications or quotes, which would indicate the PGE and local prosecutors were aware of a meeting between the two criminal organizations some weeks ago.
The article states that private messaging among prosecutors took place in the wake of the meeting. The thrust of the news article was that an alliance, or an agreement, did take place.
The purpose of the alliance tentatively was to "end the Sinaloa Cartel", according to the news report.
Reports of the shootout and photos from the shootout in Valla Coronado municipality in southern Chihuahua state Sunday seemed to confirm such an alliance was in operation.
The details of that meeting or its location was not disclosed in the article. A Juarez cartel, La Empresa, was also mentioned in the report as being a factor in increased violent activity in Chihuahua state.
Peniche said that recruiting for the cartels occurring in other states, but nothing which would indicate an alliance. He also said his office had no indication that migrants were being recruited as well.
Peniche also said that an internal disute within a drug cartel are being investigated.
