The Mexican Jalisco New Generation Cartel is considered the most feared drug cartel in the world and has now eliminated its enemies with drone bombs
A high – very high – jet has been seized by police after it was found to contain more than a tonne of cocaine with an estimated street value of around £23.3million.
It was found in Guatemala and allegedly flew to deliver the drugs to Mexico’s Jalisco New Generation Cartel, widely believed to be the world’s most powerful drug cartel.
The plane was grounded by Colombia’s attorney general’s office, and the US Drug Enforcement Administration reports to LadBible.
The drugs were allegedly manufactured in the Venezuelan border area by the Colombian People’s Revolutionary Army.
The Gulfstream III jet took off from a secret airstrip in Venezuela – but not as secret as the traffickers because it was spotted there by local police.
The group is managed by Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, who has a £7.3million bounty on his head.
It wasn’t the first time the group has been in the news this week after they were pictured dropping bombs from a drone at a rival gang’s camp.
Video footage emerged this week of people running from the camp after the strike against the Jalisco New Generation Cartel took place.
Some of the drones were reportedly shot down by armed groups.
This group is led by a woman – González Valencia.
A Drug Enforcement Agency chief told The Sun last year that she was a “key figure” in the group.
They said: “Rosalina is the financial genius behind the Jalisco New Generation Cartel and we believe she is responsible for the money laundering.
“We’re talking hundreds of millions of dollars here.”
“The arrest of Rosalinda will certainly have a significant impact on the cartel.
“If they cooperated and provided information and the Mexican government acted on it, it could do serious damage to the cartel — it could cripple it.”
