Images of food with the insignia of the Operativa 90 Zacatecas cartel circulated on social networks. According to the blog Code Red, which reports on drug-related events, the aid was distributed in the Genaro Codina municipality, where the San Aparicio dam overflowed last week.
So far, the authorities have not ruled on the matter; However, accounts related to citizen complaints warned that the criminal group distributed more than a thousand food packages in the affected areas.
Operation 090 is related to Hugo Gonzálo Mendoza Gaytán, El Sapo, a powerful but low-profile CJNG operator, who has become a priority target of the government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador .
Hours after the delivery of drug stores went viral on social media, the Zacatecas authorities reported that more than 400 families affected by weather contingencies received supplies and food support from the entity’s governor’s wife, Sara Hernández de Monreal.

This type of action had already been registered in the state of Jalisco. According to the authorities, the food deliveries took place in the cities of Guadalajara, Zapotiltic and Zapopan, which suffered the ravages of the rains.
The gunmen distributed mattresses, beds and blankets in the name of Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, El Mencho. The message that the gunmen try to make the population believe is that they do help vulnerable people, while the government crosses its arms or conditions support.
Zacatecas is a strategic place for the CJNG, which maintains an internal war with the Sinaloa Cartel for control of the region.
This battle has intensified in recent months; however, the violence came much earlier, when in 2015 the Army warned about the displacement of CJNG cells on the border between Jalisco and Zacatecas. Shortly after, in the city of Nochistlán, a glass laboratory allegedly belonging to the cartel of the four letters was found. Of course, it did not take long for clashes to arise with gunmen from Los Zetas and the Gulf Cartel, who then dominated the area.
