31 year old "Pipolin" is head of the street gang "La Quiebra" and has been apprehended in the western Comuna 13. The group is wanted in connection with numerous murders and forced displacements within the city. According to a Police report, Pipolin is responsible for contract killings and extortion, amongst other crimes.

La Quiebra, which operates in various barrios within Comuna 13, are currently engaged in a conflict with rival group "La Pradera," over the control of the corridor of the west, access to a strategically important motorway which runs parallel to the comuna. The motorway, Highway 62, runs from Medellin to Turbo on the Caribbean coast, making it vital to the trafficking of arms and drugs around the west of the country.

The group La Quiebra is one of the few remaining allies of "Valenciano" of the "Oficina de Envigado," who is currently involved in a war with rival "Sebastian" over leadership of the group, and control of Medellin. Sebastian currently controls the majority of the city, with Valenciano retaining influence in parts of Comuna 13 and La Sierra.
