Silvia Insaurralde, 35, a native of Peru, and known as “La Peruana”, had the business oiled, according to the accusation against her. Insaurralde controlled much of the drug dealing in the neighborhood the bell tower, located in the Buenos Aires town of Llavallol, Lomas de Zamora district. The woman, who appears in the records as a beneficiary of a universal allowance per child, was the head of a drug gang that operated in the place and was disrupted in the last hours after several raids carried out by the Superintendence of Investigations of the Illicit Drug Trafficking in Buenos Aires.
In the operations, ordered by the prosecutor Stephen Barrelhead of UFI No. 14 in Lomas de Zamora, Insaurralde, his 18-year-old daughter Valentina, and seven other members of the criminal organization who were allegedly under the orders of “La Peruana” were arrested.
In the raids carried out by the Illicit Drug Division of Lomas de Zamora, all carried out in the El Campanario neighborhood, the agents seized 7,500 grams of marijuana, 180 different colored cocaine wrappers ready for sale, eight cell phones, paper clippings metallic to wrap the drug, precision scales and a bulletproof vest. Thus, Insaurralde and his gang were taken to a dungeon, accused of drug trafficking.
The investigation against the organization began a few months ago, after an anonymous piece of information reached the ears of the detectives. Thus, prosecutor Barriel processed the information and began to follow the trail of “La Peruana”.
According to sources in the case, InfobaeInsaurralde controlled different points of sale in two areas within the neighbourhood: that of the monoblocks on one side and on the other, the place called “Las Casitas”, a space of low houses.
The division of tasks in the organization was underpinned, according to the accusation against him. Insaurralde operated as the leader of the gang and had contact with the most important drug traffickers who brought the drug to the neighborhood to sell it. Then there was her daughter, Valentina, who had weight in the organization, but was following orders from her mother.
The girl called herself “Mary”. His role was important.. According to official information, Valentina lived in one of the homes in the neighborhood where the drug was stored.
The same thing happened with Mirtha Mafu, 42 years old, now detained, and a relative of Insarralde, who had an address in the “Las Casitas” area. There she did the same task as Valentina, but in another area of the neighborhood. Even in that hierarchy was Deborah Arredondo42, also arrested, who stored the drug in her house.

The system was simple and effective, according to the indictment. In the different homes they accumulated the substances. From there, the “handbags”, gangs of corridors that, stationed on the corners, sold to those who passed by. When the merchandise ran out, they returned home and grabbed more drugs to continue selling.
In this way, after several months of monitoring, wiretapping and street data, the detectives of Illicit Drugs of the Bonaerense reconstructed the movements of the organization and disrupted it.
Now, the nine detainees are locked up in a dungeon for the crime of drug trafficking. Underneath, some of the investigators risk knowing who was the wholesaler who gave the drug to Insaurralde. They slip that “it is fugitive and it is known”. However, they do not mention it.
