His arrest was confirmed by the governor of Colima, Indira Vizcaino Silva, who said that the capture was carried out by members of the Mexican Secretariat of the Navy and elements of the Mexican Prosecutor’s Office of the entity. “He is identified with the criminal group Los Mezcales,” said the governor.

“Today was arrested by elements of the Navy in coordination with the @FiscaliaColima, Carlos Miguel N, alias ‘El Abulón’ or ‘El León.’ The detainee led the criminal group Los Mezcales after the capture of José Bernabé N, alias ‘La Vaca,’ and is the main generator of violence in Colima,” was the message he shared via his Twitter account.
