Rubén Oseguera González "Junior", son of Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, leader of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) was sent to the federal prison of "El Altiplano" for organized crime and money laundering.

Oseguera González, also known as "El Menchito," was transferred to the maximum-security prison until the authorities determine if there is enough evidence to produce a formal arrest warrant against him.

On Tuesday, "El Menchito" was arrested by officers from the Ministry of National Defense and the Federal Police in the municipality of Zapopan, Jalisco.

Twentyfive-year-old Oseguera González, from California, is considered the second in command of the criminal gang headed by his father.

He was arrested along with his brother Julio Alberto, and found in possession of two AR-15 rifles, two AK-47 assault rifles, and two handguns, as well as four grenades.

Rubén Oseguera was already arrested in January 2014 along other four suspects in Zapopan, Jalisco. However, he was released on December of the same year for lack of evidence.
