Cartel leader wanted in four Cancun Hotel Zone murders captured in Sinaloa

Cancun, Q.R. — A man believed to be a leader in the Pacific Cartel and mastermind behind several Cancun murders has been arrested. On Saturday morning, the State Attorney General’s Office of Quintana Roo reported on the capture of Héctor “F” who was taken into custody in Guamúchil, Sinaloa.

His capture was made by elements of the Navy during an operation in the Sinaloa city. He was taken into custody by Sinaloa police on an outstanding arrest warrant. Authorities from the FGE Quintana Roo went to Guamúchil to aide in the operation and return him to the state.

According to information from the FGE of Quintana Roo, Héctor “F” has since been returned to the city of Cancun and imprisoned. He was wanted for his alleged involvement in the April shooting deaths of four men.

On April 3, the bodies of four men were found dead in a mangrove area of the Cancun Hotel Zone. All four had been shot to death.

Shortly after the bodies were found, the FGE of Quintana Roo released a photo of Héctor “F” and a one-million-peso reward leading to his arrest.
