Antonio “N”, brother of Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, alias “El Mencho,” is alleged to be the alleged logistical and financial operator of the Jalisco Cartel – New Generation, as well as the manufacturer of the handcrafted armored vehicles known as “monsters.

He allegedly received direct orders from his brother Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, alias “El Mencho,” who allegedly gave him the order to co-opt the authorities of the three levels of government in order to have first-hand information and prevent the capture of important leaders of this criminal organization.

For this reason, it is presumed that he obtained confidential information on institutional movements and operations for the cartel’s protection; he is also linked to the acquisition of weapons in large quantities to arm the New Generation.

Sources from the Ministry of National Defense say that he kept a low profile in the public eye because he identified himself with a different name and appeared to be an office employee.

Antonio “N” was also considered one of the main generators of violence in the area, as he allegedly coordinated and ordered executions, kidnappings, torture and death against rival groups that tried to enter his territory.

With his arrest, the federal authorities claim that it destabilizes and directly and severely affects the structure and illicit operation of the group headed by Nemesio, as it cuts off the large economic profits.

It is worth mentioning that after his capture on Tuesday, for security reasons and due to his dangerousness, he was transferred to the facilities of the Specialized Prosecutor’s Office for the Investigation of Organized Crime (FEMDO) in Mexico City.

On July 18, 2008, according to U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons records, he was held in a U.S. prison, again serving a sentence.

On December 3, 2015, he was arrested by the Mexican Army, in criminal fragrance for the crime of aggravated robbery, being released on December 7, 2016 for lack of evidence.

On October 16, 2016, he was listed by the United States Treasury Department, for his participation in Money Laundering and International Drug Trafficking for the benefit of the Jalisco Cartel – New Generation.
