According to the Colombian newspaper, Mexican drug cartel bosses are allegedly seeking to occupy drug routes that were previously run by Colombians now behind bars.
The main Mexican mafias will allegedly send their own representatives to come up with agreements with leaders of criminal gangs and organize their own routes from the Pacific and the Atlantic, according to police intelligence.
A report from the police revealed that the Mexican mafias are investing in boats and aircraft for drug shipments without the help of the Rastrojos.
It is thought that these agreements to form their own routes could be in relation to the recent surrenders of the Calle Serna brothers who led the Rastrojos, which was known to have had ties with the Mexican mafia.
The latest surrender came earlier this week when the supreme leader of the criminal group and Colombia’s most wanted drug lord Luis Enrique Calle Serna, alias “Comba,” handed himself in to U.S. authorities.
His brother Javier Antonio, also called Comba or “El Doctor,” surrendered to the DEA in Aruba in May, while previous leader “Diego Rastrojo” was arrested by Venezuela in June.
These incidents signal the ongoing demise of the once powerful crime syndicate in Colombia, who at one time were in charge of transport and cargo delivery of drugs for Mexican drug cartels near the Central American coast.
