Mexican Forces Seize El Teo

January 12, 2010

Calderon is on a roll. Apparently the Navy caught El Teo, the spinoff former Tijuana cartel enforcer operating out of Baja. Another big catch, although Teo represents the ‘new wave’ of Mexican drug trafficker, part of the younger, more ruthless generation of smugglers.The Tijuana cartel is fractured these days, and Teo was warring with them for turf. Some say he was aligned with the Sinaloans, but regardless this is another positive development for the Sinaloa cartel. Teo’s turf in Baja and the border to the east of Tijuana is up for grabs.
