Son of Cartel Boss Arrested in Western Mexico

MEXICO CITY – The son of a drug cartel leader was apprehended Thursday in the western Mexican city of Guadalajara, the Jalisco state Attorney General’s Office told Efe.

Ruben Oseguera Gonzalez was captured by elements of the Mexican military and is now in the custody of the organized-crime unit of the federal Attorney General’s Office.

Ruben is the son of Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, head of the Jalisco Nueva Generacion cartel, the state AG’s office said.

Federal authorities had posted a reward of 2 million pesos ($150,000) for information leading to Oseguera Cervantes’ arrest.

The JNG’s attempts to make inroads against the rival Caballeros Templarios cartel are blamed for some of the violence that has rocked the neighboring state of Michoacan in recent months, officials say.

Ruben Oseguera was nabbed early Thursday in the course of a major military mobilization on the streets of Guadalajara, Mexico’s second city.

The large military presence – coupled with reports that three city buses had been commandeered and set on fire – caused some anxiety among Guadalajara residents.

Amid the continuing silence of the military and federal government, the Jalisco AG’s office spoke out Thursday morning via Twitter to inform residents of a military operation in the city and ask for calm.

State authorities are taking precautions against a possible reaction from the JNG cartel, Jalisco Public Safety Secretary Luis Carlos Najera said hours later at a press conference in Guadalajara.

“We are on alert and we don’t rule out violent acts by organized crime,” he said.
