Mexican Kingpin Turns Valuable FBI Informant

The L.A. Times recently ran a story detailing the apprehension in 2010 of Mexican kingpin Jesus Audel Miramontes-Varela and his conversion into one of the FBI’s most valuable informants.

Apparently eager to gain assylum for himself, wife and 3 daughters in the U.S., the 34-year-old Miramontes-Varela willingly confessed his leadership in the Juarez cartel, and accounted for two decades of dirty dealings. In taped sessions at a Colorado safe house, he mapped marijuana and cocaine routes to CA, NY and the Great Lakes, as well as the mass grave where agents proceeded to recover 20 bodies in Palomas, Mexico.

Miramontes-Varela was likely aware the feds were closing in on him when he decided to peacefully surrender. The Times reports that the ATF had tracked $250k in illegal gun purchases to Miramontes-Varela and his brother through its ill-fated Fast and Furious surveillance operation in Arizona, and the FBI knew Miramontes-Varela’s organization had bribed U.S. officials in El Paso and New Mexico when they uneventfully pulled over his BMW returning home from a Walgreens in suburban Denver.
