After a series of operations that occurred in the city of Aguascalientes during the morning, afternoon, and night of Wednesday the 12th, federal forces detained Fernando Flores García, identified as a member of the Sinaloa Cartel, the Secretary of State Public Security confirmed to this newspaper.
The operations were led by the Deputy Attorney General’s Office for Specialized Investigation in Organized Crime, SEIDO, with the support of the Army and the National Guard, and were carried out for several hours on Wednesday.
That same day in Culiacán, Sinaloa, several rumors circulated regarding what was happening in Aguascalientes. The versions agreed that it was the arrest of a commander of the Sinaloa organization in that state that enjoyed the trust of the children of Chapo Guzmán.
In Aguascalientes, the operation began at an address on Montes Himalaya street, in the Los Bosques subdivision, however, they were unable to locate him there. Later, they moved to a farm located on La Paz avenue, in the Rancho Santa Mónica residential area, where they seized some illicit objects, but the objective they were looking for was not found either.
It was not until night when the authorities arrived at a residential house in Las Plazas, and finally located the alleged criminal.
It is known that during the morning of Thursday there was a large operation in the vicinity of the Hidalgo Hospital, which was due to the fact that the detainee was apparently transferred to the hospital so that the doctors could perform a Covid-19 test on him.
Flores Garcia is an individual born 49 years ago in Miguel Alemán, Tamaulipas. According to the authorities, he has arrest warrants for federal crimes issued by judges in Tijuana, Coahuila, and Puebla. It is known that in the beginning, he was part of one of the factions of the so-called Gulf Cartel before this organization was divided. After the fragmentation, he joined the Sinaloa Cartel where he worked as one of the operators in the central zone of the country.
