On June 9th, Mexican cartels in Michoacan carried out a raid on security forces, killing an undisclosed number of personnel.

Two women were also abducted in Mexico, allegedly by the cartels, however a video suggests that I was actually police officers who carried out the kidnapping, it is still likely funded by the cartels.

The cartels are also fighting amongst themselves, in increasingly violent clashes.

The video below shows such a clash in Guanajuato:

The winning side even stayed around and took some photographs before leaving.

The CDG and CDN cartels appear to be having an all-out war, with a video showing CDG members in a custom, heavily-armored Chevrolet, with the colors of army patrol vehicles, carrying 50 mm weapons and shooting at CDN members.

Videos also show CDG members training to use their firearms in a gap between the areas controlled by the it and the rival cartel CDN.

They carry out frequent patrols to clash with, and kill any rival cartel members.

According to the US, the COVID-19 pandemic is making it hard for Mexican drug cartels to smuggle cocaine and methamphetamine into Australia.

The US Drug Enforcement Administration estimates a kilo of meth was worth between $US90,000 and $US130,000 ($A128,000 – $A185,000) in Australia before the pandemic, but now sells for around $US200,000.

“As businesses are having to adjust, every arm of cartels are having to adjust,” the DEA’s Australia attache Kevin Merkel told the Louisville Courier Journal.

In Los Angeles, wholesale meth prices have doubled from $US900 per pound at the end of last year to $US1800 to $US2000.

“There’s been stockpiling of drugs and money on both sides of the southwest border, and money-laundering activity has decreased,” J. Todd Scott, special agent in charge of the DEA’s Louisville field division, said.

“People, in general, aren’t moving; stuff isn’t moving. Cartels function best when they can kind of move undercover, move with the legitimate commerce.”

As such it is understandable that the clashes for influence and control between cartels are ramping up during the pandemic, since the profits are so much higher than earlier.
