The “La Familia” Cartel is one of Mexico's most violent drug cartels. All this drug activity in Bradenton Fl with illegal aliens from Mexico took place during the liberal Barack Obama Democrat administration with Gabino Peralta-Saucedo the last brother to be arrested in 2016.
March 2019 Tampa, Florida – U.S. District Judge Steven D. Merryday today sentenced Gabino Peralta-Saucedo (43, Bradenton) to 24 years and 4 months in federal prison for conspiracy to distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine and a quantity of heroin. There are 195 countries in the world today. At the time of his arrest, Gabino Peralta-Saucedo was wanted in all but 15. The 43-year-old — nicknamed “The Pony″ and “The Friend″ — was arrested in Mexico in 2016 and was extradited to the United States in September 2018. Peralta-Saucedo had pleaded guilty on December 14, 2018. According to court documents, for over a decade, Peralta-Saucedo coordinated the smuggling of thousands of kilograms of cocaine into the United States from Mexico. More than 12,000 kilograms of cocaine were ultimately sold in and around Manatee County on behalf of various Mexican drug cartels, including La Familia Michoacána (LFM). Peralta-Saucedo also cooperated with other Mexican drug cartels including, the Gulf Cartel and Los Zetas, in order to get drugs across the border into the United States. In addition, coconspirators possessed and distributed heroin in the Tampa Bay area. This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office. 
May 2012 TAMPA—United States Attorney Robert E. O’Neill; Steven E. Ibison, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Tampa Field Office; and Manatee County Sheriff Brad Steube announce today that two brothers, Victor Peralta-Saucedo (25) and Guillermo Peralta-Saucedo (32) pled guilty to drug and money laundering charges. Both brothers are Mexican nationals residing in the United States illegally. Prior to their arrest, they lived in Bradenton. According to the plea agreements, in 2011, Victor Peralta-Saucedo and Guillermo Peralta-Saucedo directed others to smuggle cocaine from Mexico to the United States for “La Familia” (the Mexican drug cartel known as La Familia Michoacan). For example, the brothers employed a courier who, on more than 20 occasions, used an automobile outfitted with a hidden compartment to smuggle cocaine. The courier smuggled two to four kilograms of cocaine at a time for distribution in Manatee County. Further, the brothers laundered drug proceeds by, among other things, converting small denominations of United States currency into large denominations, making the money easier to conceal, and then having a courier drive the money to Mexico. Beginning in 2007, Gabino Peralta-Saucedo (43, Bradenton) and another unnamed co-conspirator (Victor Peralta-Saucedo) smuggled cocaine from Atlanta to Manatee County on at least 12 occasions.
04/11/2018 'La Familia Michoacán' Drug Cartel leader Arnoldo Rueda-Medina, aka “La Minsa, sentenced to 43 years in federal prison for trafficking thousands of kilograms of methamphetamine into US. The leader of “La Familia Michoacán” (LFM) Mexican drug cartel was sentenced Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Ed Kinkeade to serve more than 43 years in federal prison and fined $5 million for offenses related to his leadership role within LFM. LFM was responsible for trafficking thousands of kilograms of methamphetamine into the United States and delivered to stash locations in North Texas and elsewhere. Arnoldo Rueda-Medina, aka “La Minsa,” 48, pleaded guilty in September 2017 to one count of conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute a Schedule II controlled substance and one count of conspiracy to launder monetary instruments. Judge Kinkeade sentenced Rueda-Medina to 520 months in federal prison on the drug conviction and 240 months in federal prison on the money laundering conviction, to run concurrently.
Rueda-Medina was arrested on July 11, 2009, by Mexican law enforcement. After his arrest, members of LFM attempted to free him, and although unsuccessful, a shootout ensued through the streets of Morelia, Michoacan. LFM operatives subsequently attacked several other locations and Mexican federal police officers. In response, law enforcement deployed personnel to various locations throughout the state of Michoacan. On July 13, 2009, a group of 12 Mexican officers were kidnapped, tortured and murdered. A note found at the scene where the bodies were dumped stated “Vengan por otro, los estamos esperando” (“Come for another, we are waiting for you”). At least four other officers and two Mexican Marines were killed by LFM operatives responding to the arrest of Arnoldo Rueda-Medina.
I-75 Connection: 'La Familia Michoacán' LFM's Cartel reputation has won it the title of the most dangerous criminal organization in Mexico according to former Mexican Attorney General Eduardo Medina Mora. Though largely involved in the production of synthetic drugs, LFM also traffics cocaine and heroin. Project Coronado has shown that LFM managed to establish significant distribution hubs in key U.S. cities like Los Angeles, Dallas, and Atlanta, effectively allowing it to set up a nationwide distribution network. The cartel is known to produce large amounts of methamphetamine in clandestine laboratories in Michoacan. La Familia has been known to be unusually violent. Michael Braun, former DEA chief of operations, states that it operates "superlabs" in Mexico capable of producing up to 100 pounds of meth in eight hours. It has been known that La Familia has certain connections with the Flores Camargo cartel, a small drug trafficking group that operates in Atlanta. Flores Camargo moves large quantities of high grade marijuana and cocaine through the I-75 corridor for distribution in the Tampa Bay Fl area. Beginning in 2007, Gabino Peralta-Saucedo (43, Bradenton) and another unnamed co-conspirator (Victor Peralta-Saucedo) smuggled cocaine from Atlanta to Manatee County on at least 12 occasions.
'La Familia Michoacán' LFM's Cartel works in conjunction with the 'Gulf Cartel' in shipping drugs to Florida.

BROWNSVILLE, Texas – Oscar J. Aguilar, 40, a Mexican citizen legally residing in Brownsville, has been sentenced to 14 years in federal prison for conspiring to commit international money laundering, announced United States Attorney Kenneth Magidson along with Janice Ayala, special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in San Antonio. Aguilar pleaded guilty May 16, 2014. U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen, handed Aguilar the 168-month sentence. He was further ordered to pay a $1,893,170 money judgment which represented the proceeds of drug smuggling that were laundered in the scheme. He is expected to face deportation proceedings following his release from prison. “HSI special agents often investigate complex financial schemes in order to disrupt and dismantle the ongoing operations of transnational criminal organizations,” said Ayala. “These investigations deprive the organizations from enjoying the fruits of their illicit crimes while preventing them from furthering the ongoing criminal enterprise. HSI will continue to aggressively investigate schemes that jeopardize the integrity of our financial system.” Aguilar admitted to recruiting nine others, some of whom were family members, to open bank accounts at Bank of America in Brownsville. Later, co-conspirators in Florida would deposit money from narcotics sales into the accounts. Aguilar’s recruits withdrew the money in amounts under the $10,000 reporting requirement and would give that money to Aguilar or other co-conspirators. The recruits were paid for moving the money through their bank accounts. After Aguilar received the money, he facilitated its crossing from Brownsville to Matamoros, Mexico, where it was delivered to the Gulf Cartel. From September 2008 through November 2012, the conspirators moved approximately $1,893,170 through nine bank accounts, with nearly $1.5 million from September 2011 through November 2012 alone. Nine others have been convicted in relation to this case. With the exception of Francisco Jesus Arambul-Cortez, who also pleaded to conspiracy to commit International money laundering, the eight others entered guilty pleas to operating an unlicensed money transmitting business. Following are those Texas residents who were arrested: Oscar J. Aguilar, 40, Yurixi Guadalupe Vega-Martinez, 29, Bea Marie Fairbanks, 24, Mayte Ayde Diaz, 39, Lorena M. Moreno-Martinez, 39, Teodosa Gonzalez-Rodriguez, 32, and Yezenia V. Campos-Silva, 31, all of Brownsville; and Yamileth Sinai Carballo, 20, and Miguel Jonathan Pereira, 21, both of Bayview. Aguilar will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future. This case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Karen Betancourt and Joseph Leonard.

Sheriff's Elite "Tactical Anti-Crime" Unit Team Gets Tongue Lashing by 'Criminal' Defense Attorney Varinia Van Ness For Not Giving Up Name Of C.I.. As usual, a criminal defense attorney is able to get a reduced sentence for a criminal who committed a serious crime by using and exposing the identity of a confidential informant to get what she wants, shame on Varinia Van Ness. The confidential informant who was riding in the pick up truck of Texas drug dealer Jose Julian Perez from Brownsville TX, (loaded with cocaine), is now a dead man walking because of 'Criminal' Defense Attorney Varinia Van Ness. The confidential informant was working directly with the Drug Enforcement Agency (D.E.A) and was a protected confidential informant (C.I.) and he had been in contact with the Sarasota County Sheriff's Elite "Tactical Anti-Crime" Unit as to when and where the 6 lb load of cocaine, ($100,000 street value) would be in Sarasota county via I-75 in the truck of Brownsville Texas drug dealer Jose Julian Perez who now knows the guy riding with him was a C.I. for the D.E. A.. "After all, they had plenty of cause to stop the driver, but had been told by the Drug Enforcement Administration that the confidential informant's life and his family would be in grave danger from a Mexican drug cartel if his existence became known, said Herald Tribune reporter Tom Lyons".
The Gulf Cartel is a criminal syndicate and drug trafficking organization in Mexico, and perhaps one of the oldest organized crime groups in the country. It is currently based in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, directly across the border from Brownsville, Texas. Their network is international, and are believed to have dealings with crime groups in Europe, West Africa, Asia, Central America, South America, and the United States. Besides drug trafficking, the Gulf Cartel operates through protection rackets, assassinations, extortions, kidnappings, and other criminal activities. The members of the Gulf Cartel are known for intimidating the population and for being particularly violent. "Van Ness said Monday that the incident will likely haunt the four deputies for a long time, and could lead to "Brady disclosures" — information favorable to the defense that prosecutors are required to release about the credibility of their witnesses. "While I'm not privy to the investigation, the sheriff runs his department as he sees fit," Van Ness said. "These deputies will have to deal with this for the rest of their careers. Hopefully, the state will provide Brady materials to lawyers in every single case they're involved in. All defense attorneys should know, when these deputies are involved, that this situation happened." Drug dealer Jose Julian Perez's photo on left above from the current list of incarcerated Florida State prisoners, he is currently doing 4 years at the Lawtey Correctional Institute. Jose Julian Perez is from Brownsville TX, Mexican Gulf Cartel turf.
PHOTO ABOVE WAS A FIRE-FIGHT BETWEEN FEDERAL POLICE AND GULF DRUG CARTEL MEMBERS IN MATAMOROS, WHICH IS ACROSS THE RIVER FROM BROWNSVILLE TX AND ALSO WHAT HAPPENS TO INFORMANTS. Drug dealer Jose Julian Perez is from Brownsville Texas, he has a tattoo of 'brown town' on his right leg. Brownsville Texas is a hub for major drug cartel activity out of Matamoros. Matamoros, Mexico is the "sister city" of Brownsville, Texas only 3 1/2 miles and the Rio Grande river divide them. The Mexican city of Matamoros, just south of Brownsville, is controlled by the Gulf Cartel. The cartel controls all drug trafficking and human smuggling in the area. Sarasota 'Criminal' Defense Attorney Varinia Van Ness was incensed that cops did not reveal the existence of a confidential informant in the arrest of her client Jose Julian Perez out of Brownsville Texas, on the other hand would Attorney Varinia Van Ness provide the sheriff's department as to who paid her to defend drug dealer Jose Julian Perez?? Where did the cash or checks come from?? Attorney Varinia Van Ness should view the movie 'Sicario' to get a feel of what comes out of Matamoros and Brownsville Texas, reality check, it's all about the drugs. The investigation of drug dealer Jose Julian Perez was a D.E.A. operation all the way, they had the C.I. in the truck sitting next to Perez and the D.E.A. knew about the cocaine in the truck, it appears to me the D.E.A. got with the Sarasota Sheriff Dept to make the traffic stop and drug arrest and take over the case so that they would not have to reveal in court there was a C.I. in the investigation and arrest of drug dealer Jose Julian Perez. Now Mr. Perez's Gulf Cartel bosses are going to be hunting down this C.I. and his relatives for execution, way to go Attorney Varinia Van Ness, they cut heads off in Matamoros.
Jose Julian Perez was arrested by the Sarasota County Sheriff's Elite "Tactical Anti-Crime" Unit on March 24th, 2016 on I-75 heading South just past the Clark Rd exit, he was driving a single cab Green Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck with Texas license plates, as seen in the photo of his rental house at 2048 E. 19th Street Brownsville Texas above. Jose Perez was born and raised in Brownsville Texas, he carries a Texas drivers license, he appears to have no connection to Florida other than transporting cocaine for the Gulf Cartel to what looks like Fort Myers or Miami. Jose Julian Perez was not a drug kingpin, he appears to be a mule, a transporter of drugs, he has no money, he immediately applied for an Application for Criminal Indigent Status on March 24th, 2016 but was denied, something about $100,000 of cocaine in his truck. When advised that he was under arrest on March 24th, Perez claimed no knowledge of the packages of cocaine and requested legal counsel, 'Perez Knows The Drill Don't Talk And Lawyer Up Immediately". Attorney Varinia Van Ness took his case on April 21st, 2016.
