Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — The State Attorney of Quintana Roo is offering a half million peso reward for the capture of an extortionist leader. On Tuesday, the FGE released a wanted and reward ad for the capture of Raúl Zacarías Palacios, alias “Comandante Oso” or “Comandante Cano”.

Palacios is believed to be the leader of an extortionist group. He is believed to head the network in Playa del Carmen. Palacios is alleged to have an outstanding arrest warrant for double homicide.

He is also alleged to have once belonged to the Gulf Cartel, but due to internal conflict, he joined up with another criminal gang. He is reported to be known to have threatened businesses along Fifth Avenue.
