The gunmen of the Sinaloa Cartel were seen with high-powered rifles and pistols, without any authority being present

The impunity with which the drug cartels operate in various regions of Mexico allows their members to mingle with society like any civilian, including public events or popular festivals.

This recently happened in the municipality of Cosalá, Sinaloa, where several heavily armed men attended the “Cosalazo 2022”, a musical event that takes place every year in that area.

The hitmen of the Sinaloa Cartel were seen with high-powered rifles and pistols, dressed in camouflage clothing and wearing caps with the acronym JGL, which refers to Joaquín Guzmán Loera, alias “El Chapo” and former leader of that criminal organization.

Some of the attendees recorded moments of the dance where the gunmen can be seen, and later the images were shared on social networks.

In addition, various artists participated in the event, some of whom performed songs dedicated to Chapo Guzmán and his son Ovidio Guzmán López, alias “El Ratón”.

According to local media versions, the gunmen were stationed around the stage because, apparently, a relevant command of the Sinaloa Cartel was celebrating there.

In addition, it was reported that no public security authority, the National Guard or the Army were present during the Cosalazo festivities.

Similarly, it transpired that although this event took place last weekend, the internet signal would have been cut off and only resumed on Tuesday, so until now images have emerged on social networks about this fact.

Since the municipal president of Cosalá, Carla Ursula Corrales Corrales, took office, she has been associated with drug traffickers. Five years ago, actress Kate del Castillo, 49, and actor Sean Penn, 62, met with Chapo Guzmán in this region.
