A narcomanta that appeared last Monday in the city of Mexicali, Baja California, has raised doubt and fear about the advance of The Salazars, a criminal cell historically operated by the Sinaloa Cartel.

The message, written on a white cloth and hanging on a pedestrian bridge located in front of the Autonomous University of the state, threatens the “drug money launderers” and makes specific reference to the exchange houses.

The text reads the following: “To all the money launderers of the narco who are the exchange houses, get used to 1 peso of mandate otherwise you are going to load the dick atte. Los Salazar ”(sic).

The narco-message was found on the Benito Juárez Boulevard and Calzada López Rayón by people who were passing through the area, one of the busiest in the city.

The authorities are analyzing the veracity of the message. The presence of Los Salazar, according to the weekly Zeta Tijuana, is atypical in the municipality of Mexicali.

Los Salazar’s meddling in Baja California has been gradual since 2019. This faction is linked to various murders in the region, such as that of the lieutenant of Ishmael the “Mayo” Zambada, Julio César Aguilar García, alias the “Cowboy”.
