The South Pacific Cartel (Spanish: Cártel del Pacífico Sur), is a Mexican organized crime group composed of the remnants of the Beltran-Leyva Cartel. It is based in the Mexican state of Morelos. The gang has been significantly less active since mid-2011 when the group's leaders Julio de Jesus Radilla Hernandez and Victor Valdez were captured.
Although they call themselves a 'cartel', the violent gang is a local cell created in April 2010 by Héctor Beltrán Leyva, leader of the Beltran Leyva Cartel. The gang is known for having employed a 12-year-old gunman and executioner.
