Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas — Ana Isabel Treviño Morales, sister of Miguel Ángel Treviño Morales, leader of Los Zetas, was arrested in the city of Nuevo Laredo during an operation led by the Tamaulipas Procurator’s Office with support from the Army and the Federal Police.
The ministerial police complied with an arrest warrant against the capo’s sister, who is identified as being responsible for the crime of kidnapping in November 2016.
According to federal officials, the detainee is also the sister of Miguel Ángel and Omar Treviño, both identified as leaders of Los Zetas, a group that, according to intelligence data, has been operating mainly in Nuevo Laredo.
The group has been characterized as having control of various activities linked to human trafficking, smuggling, extortion and kidnapping, among other illegal acts, as well as forced disappearances and homicides.
The Secretary of the Navy captured on July 15, 2013, in the municipality of Anáhuac, Nuevo León, Miguel Ángel Treviño Morales, during a precision operation.
This was the first high impact blow against organized crime and which derived from the intelligence work carried out by the security agencies of our country.
According to the authorities, one of the sisters is considered the most bloodthirsty capo that has operated in Mexico who managed to gain control of that cartel before the death of her predecessor Heriberto Lazcano Lazcano, who was killed by the Navy on October 7, 2012, in Sabinas, Coahuila.
On March 4, 2015, Omar Treviño, who was signaled by the federal authorities to be behind the fire at Casino Royale, in Monterrey, and clandestine graves in San Fernando, Tamaulipas, fell during an operation carried out by federal forces in San Pedro Garza García, Nuevo León.
The capture, which was achieved by monitoring his financial operator Carlos Arturo Jiménez Encinas, represented another important blow since Omar is identified as one of the most “ruthless” and “bloodthirsty” criminals.
