The Beltran Leyva Cartel

The Beltrán Leyva brothers were in charge of two groups of murderers known as “Los Pelones” in the state of Guerrero and “Los Güeros” in the state of Sonora, who carried out murders in favor of the Sinaloa Cartel. Starting in 2010, the organization was divided into small organizations that worked in a decentralized manner.

Alliance with Los Zetas

In May 2008, the Beltran Leyva brothers and several of its agents joined Los Zetas , so May 30, 2008, the government of the  USA classified the Beltrán Leyva brothers under the ‘Kingpin Act’ to legally interfere with their financial structure, money laundering and do everything possible to assist in their arrest

The Beltrán Leyva brothers have been extending their power through the use of force through Edgar Valdez Villarreal (“La Barbie” or “El Tigrillo”) in Guerrero, Chiapas, Querétaro, Quintana Roo, Nayarit, Sonora, Tamaulipas, State of Mexico and the Federal District. This member is the executing arm and responsible for countless deaths and settling accounts, and he is credited with the death of the Cancun general, Enrique Tello Quiñones
