The Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area is a long way away from the home turf of Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel, but that didn’t stop three cartel enforcers from making their way up the region in an attempt to hunt down two teenagers they accused of stealing drugs and money from a stash house.

The three enforcers were allegedly sent from Los Angeles to St. Paul on orders from the Sinaloa cartel to find the people who stole 30 pounds of methamphetamine and $200,000 from a stash house in St. Paul. The two teens that the cartel hit men snagged were tortured, had their lives and that that of their families threatened and were told to find the missing drugs or come up with $300,000 to compensate the cartel, according to court documents obtained by the (Minneapolis) Star Tribune newspaper.

“The kidnappers told [the 19-year-old] that if he didn’t return the drugs or come up with the money, he and his entire family would be killed,” according to court documents.

Despite indictments pending and two of three enforcers taken into custody, the story has people in the Twin Cities area shocked and worried as law enforcement deals with a spike in drug trafficking and heroin overdoses.

Federal authorities told the Star Tribune that they are not shocked that the Sinaloa cartel would go to such lengths to retrieve their money and drugs, especially in the lucrative Midwest heroin market. What worries them is that instead of using their own people, the cartel apparently hired the hit men from the feared Mara Salvatrucha 13 street gang (MS-13).

One of the men, 22-year old Jonatan Alvarez Delgado, was arrested in Minnesota and confessed to the crime. Another, Jesus Ramirez, 31, was captured in California after leading FBI agents on a chase through downtown Los Angeles and the third, known only as “Chapop,” is still at large.

    Minnesota is very white, so this must be the white man’s fault.

    • To some extent it is. Rich whites don’t want to pay decent wages, so they hire the greaseritos instead, let the taxpayers pick up the bill for feeding and schooling their kids and leave the hospitals on the hook for providing them all “free” medical care.

    • Fr. John+

      Minnesota is no longer ‘very white.’ It has been seeking the genocide of the indigenous White, Scando/German population, since HHH made Gary, Indiana a conduit for non-whites to come get our ‘free’ welfare, since the 1960’s!

      • Ella

        It sounds like another Norway in its works.

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      Minnesota is, but Minneapolis and St. Paul are not. I live here, and there are many areas of the Twin Cities that feel like another country. We have a very large amount of Somalis, Hispanics, Hmong, etc.

      • AndrewInterrupted

        And they’re all scamming–on the dole.

      • fuzzypook

        That makes me sick. My mother is from Northern Minnesota, I was born in Minneapolis. I have great memories of my childhood summers spent in Fosston. That it is now polluted with diversity makes me furious.

  • MekongDelta69

    They’re just ‘aspiring’ illegal alien criminals.

    No wait…

    • Erasmus

      Relax. They’re just doing the beatings Americans are too lazy to do.

  • AndrewInterrupted

    Just a sneak preview for all American cities once the traitors in Washington
    give all those Greaseritos amnesty.

    Southern New Hampshire is just starting to heat-up with Latin crime.

  • Why does being a long way from Mexico have anything to do with it?

    I’m sure Minneapolis-St. Paul have a Mexican or Hispanic part of town. Mexico is where Mexicans are.

  • none of your business

    They drive right up the highway from Texas to St. Louis, Chicago, Milwaukee and Minnesota.

  • IstvanIN

    Gee, why would anyone want to control our borders?

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      The United States ceased being an actual nation with a strong ethnic identity in 1965. It’s now a miniature version of the UN, a universal nation without borders. Eventually, all nations will vanish from the pages of history and we’ll all live together in peace and harmony in a fully globalized world, or so the multicultural ideologues would have you believe.

      • The current US is actually Austria-Hungary or Jugoslavia.

        • Zaporizhian Sich

          More like Yugoslavia with the Ottoman Turks still in power there.

          • Fr. John+

            Don’t even get me started on the G-D Somalis, brought her by (as my wife calls them) Lutheran Social-ist Services.

  • Alexandra1973

    Seems like the eastern part of my county (Wayne County, Ohio), and Stark County (which borders Wayne to the east) are getting more of these greaseritos. A friend of mine told me Stark County has an illegal alien problem.

    I live in the northern part of the county, which is actually pretty White. I go to the area where my son’s school is, and I see los greaseritos. Go to the laundromat there, and their kids are running around. I’ve lived in this county for 20+ years and even 10 years ago I don’t remember seeing that many Hispanics.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      That’s funny you should say. A guy I work with from time to time was based in Nashua, New Hampshire from 1998 to 2002, then worked another field service region out west for 10 years, then came back. He said the same thing. Nashua is crawling with Greaseritos. 10 years ago you rarely saw them. It’s all since Obama.

      • Ella

        Not really, we dealt with hoards of illegals in the Southwest both from Latin America and Mexico; they just migrated further North to your regions as we still get overran with more Greaseritos. It will NEVER stop until the government funds and closes the borders.

  • Sloppo

    It’s a civil rights violation when anyone tries to require hispanics to follow US laws, so I’m not sure what can be done about this sort of thing.

  • Nancy Thomas

    I have to laugh. I worked around gang filth for 25 years. The rest of the country has NO IDEA what these people are like.
    idiot whites, brainwashed by the MSM repeat, “They do the work nobody else will do!”

    They do the KILLING nobody else will do.

  • ncpride

    Off topic, but I’m sitting here watching on the news an all out brawl between a black and Mexican student at some school, where the teacher was fired for trying to break it up with a broom. Can you imagine the racial tension at that school right now? Interesting times ahead..

  • Where ever there are Mexicans there is cruelty and torture–of animals and humans. It’s in their genes, as evidenced by their pre-Euro culture–cutting the hearts out of human child sacrifices. There’s just a preponderance of mean homo sapiens in their ranks. They love gory movies, too. And, the Mexican gangs are in 3,000 US cities.
    Amnesty? No, expulsion first and if found here again, death.

    • American_cavalier

      Yeah right? Thats why I always laugh at lefty types who cry how we started death squads and tortuing at the School of the Americas. Like we taught them? They got hundreds of years experience the Spanish Inquisition to the Romans and Aztecs. Hell they taught us!

    • PvtCharlieSlate

      What good can be said for a culture whose traditional sporting event is watching an animal being tortured to death?

  • So CAL Snowman

    I don’t know why the Sinaloa Cartel bothered with the MS-13, they could have just called the White House and had the drugs and cash promptly returned to them.

  • JSS

    So Mexicans act like Mexicans no matter where they are. Sort of like how a chihuahua is always a chihuahua. Clearly more out reach and open borders can trump nature.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      Yep, that is why the Mexican president has correctly stated that where there’s a Mexican there is Mexico.

  • Romulus

    Now for all naive fools who think drugs should be legalized, should this also make the list?

    So we’ll trade illegal cartels for legal ones?! We’d still have one more nail in our coffin. That of a drug riddled, sexual sewer, gender roles inverted, with massive foreign invasion to boot, society.

    To the kid I spoke to at the conference: There are entire wings of both the VA and univ. Of Penn hosp devoted to our people who’s lives and families have been destroyed by drugs. Our society is in a death spiral and you desire to reduce cognitive brain function even lower. Please, get a clue.

  • Puggg

    This meth angle can’t be overlooked. Everyone worries about cold pills and trailer parks. That’s yesterday’s news. Today’s news on meth is that the Mexican gangs are bringing it in. The kind of meth they bring in is way worse than anything brewed in a trailer park.

    • Most of the meth has long been brought from Mexico, and of far better quality than anything that came out of a trailer park. The cartels hire university-educated organic chemists and set up professional production facilities, rather than the boxes of dirty junk that US law enforcement agencies like to call “meth labs”.

  • Dubyasee

    I’ve heard it said that species survival will not necessarily go to the fastest or smartest but to those who can most easily adapt to a changing environment. I urge White people to eschew drugs (legal as well as illegal) and not allow the changing cultural landscape threaten our progeny.

  • Zaporizhian Sich

    I think these Mexican cartel members, gang members and anyone else who pushes meth and drugs from Mexico should be hunted down, killed, and their bodies disposed of clandestinely. They are enemy invaders and insurgents, and should be killed accordingly on sight. Soon they will be killing entire white families because the daughter refused to date one of them, or the father testified against them in court.

  • This is the price we shall pay for a traitorous leadership in Washington, and
    an unclear resolve from American people ..

  • What sort of 19 year-old thinks anyone would just forget about $200,000 in cash and 30 kg of pure, Mexican crystal-meth, and not follow him halfway across the US just to make him cough up the money and the dope?

    A user himself: that’s who.

  • WR_the_realist

    Why are the good liberals of Minneapolis – St. Paul shocked? Where there are Mestizos there is Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador. Where there is Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador there is MS-13 doing work for hire for Mexican drug lords. I bet nearly every one of those white liberals wants amnesty for illegal aliens.

  • 4teepee

    You ain’t seen nothing yet. The drug cartels are getting bolder witthin the United States. Eventually, elites such as judges, prosecutors, and journalists will become targets.

  • AndrewInterrupted

    That must have been a day when he wasn’t white.
    Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, I think? <;-D

  • Pelagian

    Mexican drug cartel torturers are putting the “scrotum” in Minnesota Twins.

  • M&S

    MS-13 is a cheap outsource subcontractor that lets the real DTO’s power remain in Mexico where it’s political connections would be deeply embarrassing if exposed.
    RICO has had an unintended backlash in this because it treats all major gang crime as ‘organized’ and has effectively broken the street soldier code of silence with it’s 20+ sentencing norms. Thus driving the organization out of country where it cannot be caught or monitored.
    Gangs or elements of them with loose inter-connections form short-term alliances, cooperating together for specific jobs and then breaking up to find other business partnerships, leading to a minimalist paper trail which dead ends at the facilitator who hooks the contractor up with the deal.
    Three men sounds like a cell which means that these people have also gone insurgent and compartmentalized. Pound one nail and the most he can give you is a couple others, meanwhile another stands up in it’s place, like shark teeth, with very little if any connection in-between.
    In this, all the gang sign you see ‘flashed’ in the article photo is likely either fake or an indication of how distributed and non-organized these gangs are that they actually have to have IFF codes.
    What is interesting to me is how fast these robbers were run down, before the team was sent.
    Obviously, spending like you had some when you never did before is a classic mistake but either these kids were employees and thus knew when to hit the stash house. And/or they were recorded doing it with high end surveillance that enabled pre-targeting by an outside cleaner.
    The latter is particularly dangerous because if they are -not- part of the DTO distributorship hierarchy, they were likely tracked down using Law Enforcement access to database booking photos and name/address.
    Puts a whole new twist on ‘Crime doesn’t pay -because- the Government runs it…’

    • Those thieves had to have been employees. How else would they have known about the cash and meth, and how else would the narcos have known who to look for?

      • M&S

        Those thieves had to have been employees.

        Okay. With some experience in the seriousness of the business, what’s the first thing you would do if you came into a quarter million in illegal dope money?

        1. Turn it in to the cops and hope it ends there?

        2. Cut all ties, burn all bridges and start running?

        The cartel found them, within days.

        That kind of organized pursuit in a crowd of millions comes from the ability to tap surveillance cams, not just ‘in the remote site’ storage facility but at stoplights and indeed, any other networked camera facility which likely now includes the majority of supermarkets and gasoline stations as well.

        We aren’t told this because the government, having long since come to the realization that a little corruption, under control, beats a ‘Free Market Economy’ in crime, has basically taken the profit motive out of the business and thus the violent competition with it.

        Franchises are sold, seed populations of users are brought in to begin ‘creating a market’ and the truth of the drug trade becomes that it is a regulated business, like any other.

        Before you tell me that these were users, too burn-brained to know what they were doing, ask yourself this:

        A. Would a professional DTO allow a low level employee ANYWHERE NEAR a high value asset like a storage warehouse with that kind of product quantities or would they control distribution as a function of on-site delivery of micro-sale amounts?

        B. If a DTO was so stupid as the use a meth head in their ‘sales department’, would they -not- have a functionally robust ability to track them? Keeping in mind that any seller is going to be caught, eventually, and thus compartmentalization saves on buy-back or replacement and new startup fees, at least, an early warning system is still mandatory.

        Where did the money go Michael? How did a couple of meth heads get a _credit card_ to spend that much money, that fast, that the DTO had to threaten their lives for the total $300,000.00?

        There is more to this than is being said. But I’m betting that a government intervention after a ‘scared straight’ interlude is the driver on all of it, with confiscation of the cash a given. Because the government _does not care_ about the gang banger subcontractors they bust for playing torture/blackmail games. It buffs their performance reviews.

        And the DTO contractor doesn’t care about MS-13 either because they are _specifically designed_ to be a burnable asset.

        Follow the money. If you find it in a government account or ‘split fifty fifty’ between DTO and Government bureaucracy, you’ll know how deep the corruption goes.

        • Some of the users do get into distribution, and then do stupid things. A guy I knew in federal prison got nailed for selling $15,000 worth of cocaine to an undercover cop behind a convenience store at 3:00 AM. He later told me he would have realized that nobody buys that much coke behind a Diamond Shamrock at 3:00 AM except an undercover cop, but that he was a bit too high himself to think of that.

          A TSA passenger screener I used to know got popped in 2004 for molesting children while he was stoned on meth and/or exstasy, and actually swung a deferral. In 2006, he violated the deferral – while stoned again – by being caught with $9000 worth of dope, $500 in cash, a .45″ and a Tech-9 at a suspected drug house in a CSPD vice squad raid. Now he’s seven-and-a-half years into a life sentence.

          Don’t expect intelligent behavior out of all of these people; it’s just not always there.

          • M&S

            I don’t expect intelligence from the street level idiots who do crime to feed a habit and get nailed for want of having a walk-away clause.
            DON’T USE THE PRODUCT being the first order delineator of duh-ness in retail level drug use.
            However; I do expect intelligence from those who are their bosses.
            Somewhere, there is a ‘Minneapolis/St. Paul Division Manager’ who just saw his quarterly if not yearly bonus shot to hell (maybe literally) for want of having proper oversight on his operation.
            The people who cut the check on an MS-13 kidnap/torture fest are not going to be that man, he doesn’t have the cash or the contacts.
            Any enforcer calls are going to come from significantly higher up the food chain.
            And yet, because he will have to report to them, the Division Chief likely knows their reputation, if not their faces.
            “Uhhhh, yeah, we just had 20/10 combined walk out the door on one of my houses. From the video, it looks like Harry and Jerry, a pair of my subs.”
            “Stay right there.”
            Now _he_ has to have a walk-away clause. One which ends with him and a membership at Club Fed.
            And because he has a lot more to lose from that run-or-die condition, that is the guy I would expect to know better. Because his bosses will have sent him to some kind of security seminar to teach him and they certainly would not have hired a user for his position in the management tree.
            You vet your people and if they are users as having ‘unique access to the market base’, that’s a replaceable sales associate risk you run for being in a people oriented business.
            But you don’t bring money or product beyond what they can immediately sell within ten miles of them and you make even the stable ones pee in a cup, regularly, to ensure that they have not slid to the darkside.
            Use a dead drop. Use a driving exchange that pulls up alongside at a random intersection, going the same way (MOs in the mail as payment). Use a donkey system of intermediate cutouts you can trust.
            But always have a tiered asset value schema to physically isolate and knowledge-compartmentalize all awareness of the location of the drug stash and move it around. Because that top level security maintenance is your control card, what makes you valuable in the system.
            Having discrete video on-site only enables you to give an address to the fast ambulance driver, it doesn’t prevent the accident. And if the robbers are smart, it may not even do that.

  • disqus_irCdmAu8It

    This is what the USA gets when they import poverty, especially from Mexico. And to think, some Lib-Dem trolls what blanket amnesty.

    • Consider also that GOP big-shots like John Boehner and Jeb Bush consider these torturers to be “natural conservatives”.

  • Johnny Clay

    I was always led to believe that Mexicans hated people from El Salvador, MS-13’s country of origin.

  • The Amnesty of millions is going to destroy our country and will never recover!

    • Mary

      A huge problem is that they are already present in large numbers in the suburbs and rural areas in many regions of the country, and this is likely to worsen drastically in the absence of a reversal of the current trajectory. There may be no escape left anywhere in the country soon.

      • Ella

        I agree with you on the suburban context as I see more nonwhites moving into older homes and apartments. In some wealthier neighbourhoods, there are already 30% nonwhite with many low income families. Most of us reside and work in larger cities so I don’t see relief.

  • Fr. John+

    The only thing McCarthy did, was show the US exactly who was behind everything going on in the 1950’s. In case you don’t know how to read, every point and every ethnic sub-group that was suspect, has been shown to be the very ideology and race that has subsequently destroyed this nation. The RC’s should have canonized McCarthy, not J2P2. (oh, and I’m NOT a Roman priest, so your insult fell flat)
