A recently arrested regional leader of the Gulf Cartel fled out of a window of his mother’s home after a judge ordered him to remain under arrest.

Breitbart Texas reported that 20-year-old Guillermo Rene “El Memito” Escamilla Cabriales, a leader of the Gulf Cartel, fled from house arrest by climbing through a window at his mother’s house.

A Nuevo Leon state judge permitted Escamilla to be under house arrest rather than have him in the state’s prison.

Escamilla was staying at his mother’s home under guard by state police. Officers checked in every 30-45 minutes to guarantee that Escamilla was still there.

Despite efforts to apprehend him, the man remains a fugitive.

Last week, officers arrested Escamilla in the Monterrey suburb of San Nicolas, Nuevo Leon.

The man is described by investigators as a leading member of the Ciclones faction of the Gulf Cartel who had been transferred to Monterrey to fight for and control the cartel’s trafficking and distribution routes.

At the time of his arrest, authorities discovered various drugs, two rifles, a 9mm handgun that has already been associated with various shootings.

Escamilla reportedly set up his base of operations in the Hacienda Los Morales area from where his group has already been tied to multiple homicides.
