HistoryEdit

For decades, residencial Nemesio R. Canales has seen illegal drug trade activity. The residencial has sometimes been embattled in drug wars between cartels operating there and those operating at Residencial Luis Lloréns Torres and other areas of the country.

This problem continued well into the 21st century, with arrests and murders, at both residenciales, being commonplace.[5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][excessive citations]
