The Cabrera Sarabia is a group of brothers from the community of Vasco Gil in Canelas, Durango, a mountain municipality in the area known as the Golden Triangle, on the border between Sinaloa, Durango and Chihuahua.
Dominance in the Duranguense territory occurred since the end of an internal struggle in the Pacífico Cartel, approximately in 2013, in which clandestine graves were found in the capital city with more than 300 corpses.
This criminal group linked to the Sinaloa cartel is led by the brothers Felipe, José Luis, Alberto and Alejandro Cabrera Sarabia.
Felipe Cabrera, known in ‘The King of Heroin’ is extradited in the United States, after his arrest in 2011 in Culiacán, Sinaloa. José Luis, Alberto, and Alejandro are part of this group.
Alberto Cabrera Sarabia ‘El Arqui’ died in a confrontation with federal forces in the municipality of Canatlán, Durango, in 2012. About Alejandro Cabrera it is only known that he was arrested in the city of Torreón, Coahuila.
With regard to José Luis, he is free, and it is said unofficially that he is in charge of preventing the advance of the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel towards Durango territory, because violence has been generated on the border with Zacatecas.
