Rojo Sanchez is a dangerous important Mazatleco operator: Los Mochis!

November 25th 2011   ·   0 Comments

The Sinaloa state criminal prosecuter’s office in Los Mochis was bombed earlier this week after the arrest of 26 year old Óscar Alexander Rojo Sánchez, “El Rojo”, a resident of Los Mochis.

Rojo Sanchez arrested!

Authorities state that Rojo Sanchez is a dangerous important Mazatleco operator and was responsible for retail drug sales in Northern Sinaloa and for providing funds for corrupt municipal police in Ahome and Los Mochis that allow Los Mazatlecos to operate with impunity in the area. “El Rojo” was arrested with 78 kilograms of Marijuana, 78 boxes of 7.62x39mm ammunition, with approximately 1,700 rounds for AK-47 type weapons, scales used to measure cocaine and crystal meth for street sales and assorted other gear.  La Limpia Mazatleca is believed to have formed alliances with Los Zetas and the Juarez cartel in their attempt to fight off attempts by the Sinaloa cartel to expropriate all of northern Sinaloa and it is believed the warfare between both rival gangs has spread throughout the state.
