The Ronda 88 criminal group, which has sought to wrest supremacy from the La Unión Tepito cartel, suffered a serious blow on the night of Tuesday, November 1, when members of the Mexico City Attorney General’s Office (FGJCDMX) arrested a woman identified as one of its main operators.
She is Annie “N,” the alleged administrator of Ronda 88’s profits in the Cuauhtémoc and Gustavo A. Madero municipalities, where she was captured.
Her arrest occurred during a search in the district mentioned above, in which detectives from the Mexican Investigative Police (PDI), ministerial personnel, and members of the Mexican National Defense Secretariat (Sedena) and the Mexican National Guard (GN) participated.
As a result of this operation, security forces seized a long gun, as well as 150 bags with possible marijuana and 251 doses of cocaine, according to preliminary reports.
“During the inspection of the property, the PDI agents found green plants and white powder, with the characteristics of marijuana and cocaine, respectively, distributed in bags as doses, as well as a long firearm and useful cartridges,” read the statement issued by the District Attorney’s Office of the CDMX.
She was one of the main operators of the cartel.
According to the investigations that led to the raid, Annie “N” received instructions from Ulises “N” El Morita, her partner, who has been incarcerated in the Reclusorio Oriente since February 2022.
El Morita was identified as the main operator and collaborator for the storage and distribution of drugs in the capital, as he worked directly with Fabián Oswaldo “N,” alias El Cachorro, the current leader of Ronda 88.
It should be noted that El Cachorro assumed the leadership of the criminal group after the capture of his father, Fabián Solís Vega, alias El Fabián de la Peralvillo, in Acapulco, Guerrero, on April 6, 2021.
El Fabián had positioned himself as one of the 10 most wanted criminals in Mexico City. In his criminal career, he has been accused of extortion, drug dealing, and murder, among other crimes.
His criminal record shows that he had already been in prison on at least two occasions, one in 1998 and the other in 2001, both for homicide. However, in both cases, he was released.
His confrontation with Unión Tepito began when he offered protection to the merchants of Calzada La Ronda in the Ex Hipódromo de Peralvillo neighborhood. He promised that he and his men would take care of the members of La Unión in exchange for a fee of 500 pesos.
That would have marked the beginning of his feud with the Tepito cartel, as the authorities of the CDMX linked him to at least 10 executions of members of that group.
After his capture in Acapulco, his son was positioned as the head of Ronda 88. However, since then, the authorities have dealt several blows against his organization, as the following day, his brother, Juan Solis Vega, was arrested, also in the Guerrero port.
On November 15, 2021, the Mexican Secretariat of Citizen Security (SSC), in collaboration with the Sedena and the GN, dismantled a warehouse belonging to this criminal group in the Gustavo A. Madero district, just a week after the arrest of Juan Carlos “N,” alias El Charly, an active police officer who allegedly formed part of the Ronda 88 payroll and whose function was to guarantee the security of the organization’s members.
