Beltrán Leyva cartel plaza chief in La Paz, BCS, arrested

A man identified as a drug cartel plaza chief in La Paz, Baja California Sur, was arrested yesterday without incident at a home in the Pueblo Nuevo neighborhood.

Andrés “N,” also known as “El Pájaro,” is suspected of coordinating the distribution and sale of drugs in the municipality of La Paz for the Beltrán Leyva Organization, said Federal Police chief Manelich Castilla Craviotto.

The cartel boss carried out his operations from two houses in La Paz. Another man was arrested in the second house, located in Zona Central.

Drugs and firearms were seized during the arrests.

The capture of Andrés “N” was one of the principal objectives for security forces in Baja California Sur, Castilla said.
