Arrested for kidnapping the teenage son of the ex-leader of the cartel de Tláhuac

The police of Mexico City inspected routinely by a vehicle southeast of the capital until a woman in the back seat asked for help. In the mayor's office Tláhuac, five teenagers between 14 and 17 years of age that hold them back in a truck were apprehended for an alleged kidnapping. The minors had a gun, a replica of an assault rifle and a kilo of something that the Attorney General of Justice of Mexico City, the local prosecutor's office, described as “a green vegetable with the characteristics of marijuana.” One of the detainees, Alexis Perez, 14 years old, has been identified as the son of Felipe de Jesus Perez Luna, aka The Eyes, gunned down in July of 2017 for leading a criminal organization that operates in the area for almost 20 years.

The arrest, which occurred Thursday, has picked up the alert on the poster of Tláhuac, a group dedicated to drug trafficking, extortion and kidnapping. The band is considered to be broken up after the assassination of The Eye by the navy, and the arrest of five of his children —two women, two men and another teenager— in the next three years. Alexis Perez was arrested in a manner similar to that of his older brother, Kevin, who was arrested at the age of 16 in April of 2018 charged with murder, informal drug economy, and possession of weapons. Both were arrested for their criminal activities themselves and not by links with the organization.

however, Perez himself maintained links with the criminal group of his father. According to local media, already controlled some points of sale of drugs in Tláhuac, and was very fond of cock fighting and weapons. In an image published by the portal The Chair Rotates you can see the minor with Gerardo Ortiz, a performer of narcocorridos, a subgenre of music that idealizes the acquisition of power and money from the drug trade.

Pérez and his companions, who are 16 and 17 years, were placed at the disposal of the branch of care of minors of the Central public prosecutors Office, where he began a confession for the crimes alleged kidnapping express, and robbery with physical violence, which is compounded by the number of participants.

on The afternoon of Thursday, announcing the arrest of the minor, the Security secretary of Mexico City, Omar Garcia Harfuch, stated that the poster of Tláhuac was “very weakened” and that still imprison one of its members: the second of the sons of Perez Luna.

The poster began as a band of hijackers who operated from the year 2000. To The Eyes, dedicated primarily to the informal drug economy in the mexican capital, is linked with the organization of the brothers Beltran-Leyva, who worked with Joaquín El Chapo Guzmán, before the division of the Sinaloa cartel. For 19 years, the criminal group was responsible for the distribution of drugs in the south of Mexico City, operating in the municipalities of Milpa Alta, Xochimilco, and part of Coyoacán, Iztapalapa, in addition to Chalco, in the State of Mexico.

In August of 2019, the office of the prosecutor capital reported of the arrest of Liliana Pérez Ramírez, sister of The Eyes and recognized as the last leader visible on the sign, and Carlos Alejandro Mendoza, alias Cindy, chief of the assassins of the grouping. With these arrests, the last after three years in which they arrested five sons of Perez Moon, and other eight operators of the poster, the grouping was seen as disjointed in its high command.
