by Chivis Martinez Villanueva was the long time leader of Chapo’s enforcer group “Gente Nueva” (New People).  His operation base was out of Hermosillo, Sonora. He was involved in a violent clash in the Sonora city of Tubutama, in July 2010.  Reports indicated up to 100 GN vehicles marked with an “X”, with a red rag attached, convoyed a single lane, isolated road between the cities of Tubutama and Saric, Sonora.  At the time it was the last remaining significant route controlled by BLO (Beltran Leyva Organization).  BLO was tipped off of the GN plan, to convoy and attack BLO.  BLO is familiar with every mile of the route, and were aware  they could wait until the convoy was at a certain point, at which time they could easily entrap and ambush the convoy,  by sealing off  both ends as there were no side roads that GN  could escape through. BLO and Zetas had their alliance, and they assisted BLO with the offensive attack.  From a BLO perspective, the plan worked brilliantly,  and in the aftermath 29 dead GN were scattered about the roadway, before the remaining GN could shoot themselves out, and backtrack to safety.   BLO saved their route. It was reported that police, both former and serving were among the BLO group assisting with this attack and others. This massive shootout was 12 miles from the US border.
