CAB015 / Mexico / ACTION REQUEST: AUGUST 10 SURVEILLANCE REPORT

ACTION REQUEST: AUGUST 10 SURVEILLANCE REPORT
¶1.  This is an action request – see paragraph 3.

¶2. (S) This is a follow-up to previous reports regarding the Avocado Ring presence in the Nogales area (see NOGALES-008416).  On August 10, a surveillance team was dispatched to a MexiLab facility suspected to serve as a front for the weapon-smuggling organization.  MexiLab, which is owned by Mexican national Mr. Dario Castillo, established its business in January 1990 but didn’t begin official operations until 1994.  The firm has it headquarters in Nogales and maintains an “Integration Facility” and warehouse about 20 miles North of Nogales, along the I-19 Frontage Road.  MexiLab reportedly employs around 20 employees, with an annual revenue estimated at USD 4 million.

¶3. (u) While the initial surveillance report (see NOGALES-009828) did not reveal any specific activity, further analysis of gathered intelligence is required.  Current recipient list should be copied in all follow-up communications.
