According to a report by the police, Hernández (alias ‘Chaparro’) is the second-in-command of the organization led by Ericcson Vargas (alias ‘Sebastián’). Hernández’s arrest took place on Wednesday, but according to the police, it was announced on Sunday once his identification was confirmed, since the alleged criminal had altered the pads of his fingers. On Wednesday, the police also announced the arrest in Aruba of Gustavo Alvarez (alias ‘Tavo’), the second-in-command of another faction of the Envigado Office, led by Maximiliano Bonilla (alias ‘Valenciano’). The factions led by ‘Sebastián’ and ‘Valenciano’ are mired in a war to the death over control of retail cocaine trafficking and of their territory, in which their chief center of operations is the city of Medellín (400 km northwest of Bogotá). The two are heirs of Diego Murillo (alias ‘Don Berna’), a drug trafficker and former paramilitary leader extradited to the United States in 2008.last_img read more
