The leader of Los Zetas, Miguel Angel Trevino Morales, El Z 40, was transferred from Altiplano to the Cefereso at Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, informs the Commission for National Security.

“It is a precautionary rotation, that is carried out as a matter of course with the authorization of Judiciary”, indicated sources of the Commission.

El Z-40 was detained by elements of the Marina during a surprise operation in Anahuac, Nuevo Leon, in July of 2013. ( Otis: See Link to article by Chivis on his capture).

United States petitioned for the extradition of Z-40 for drug trafficking and homicides occurring between September of 2004 and July of 2013.

Trevino was converted to leader of Los Zetas, after the death of Heriberto Lazcano Lazcano, “El Lazca” or “the executioner”, on 7th of October of 2012.

He also worked for the narco trafficker Osiel Cardenas Guillen as part of the armed wing of the Cartel del Golfo. Later he left this criminal group, and made a pact with the Beltran-Leyva brothers.

The leader of Los Zetas is linked to diverse escapes of prisoners and is also alleged to have ordered the death of Jose Eduardo, son of the ex Governor of Coahuila, Humberto Moreira, which occured on the Santa Eulalia road, located between Acuna and Jimenez, on the 3rd of October last year.

According to data of the Secretary of National Defence, the assassination of the son of the ex Governor was instructed by Miguel Angel Trevino Morales, as a reprisal for the death of his nephew Alejandro Trevino Chavez.

The crimes attributed to Z-40 are being an organized crime member, carrying of firearms for exclusive use by the army, Navy and Air Force.
