David López Jiménez, alias “El Cabo 20” or “El Lobo,” one of the priority targets for cartel activity in Baja California, was arrested during a special operation carried out in the Vistahermosa neighborhood in Mexicali, near the US border.
Mexican State Police surprised “El Cabo 20” on streets of the known Golden Zone of that city last Sunday. The news has only been confirmed now.
“El Cabo 20” had moved to the Baja California capital several weeks ago after a fight between rival cartels had broken out in Tijuana.
The Mexican justice department holds him responsible for a high number of all executions in Tijuana. El Cabo had left several death threatening messages against Mexico’s new President Lopez Obrador printed on banners allover various cities.
