Gerardo Ortiz’s police investigation didn’t go the way fans expected after all. Earlier this month, sources reported that Jalisco’s police department had found it unusual for official police cars to be featured in the singer’s controversial clip, “Fuiste Mía,” which according to Telemundo 52 is considered to be a felony in Mexico.

However, using police cars without consent is the least of Ortiz’s worries. On Thursday, authorities released new information to the media, stating that the 26-year-old performer was now being investigated for possible connections to some of Jalisco’s infamous drug leaders such as, Daniel Quintero Riestra o José Antonio Riestra Ruvalcaba, better known as “El Danny Quintero.”

For this reason, Jalisco’s District Attorney is asking the PGR (Procuraduría General de Justicia) to take over the case in order to be able to “initiate a criminal investigation for organized crime felonies, and the usage and operation of resources deriving from illicit sources.”

La Jornada reports that Gerardo Ortiz was scheduled to perform in Tepabril, Tepatitlán on Friday night, but the concert was cancelled after police officers on duty found cocaine, methamphetamine, and marijuana at the venue. The exact amount was not disclosed.

When the regional Mexican star was confronted about the situation earlier during the investigation, he replied, “The only thing I did was hire a production company to do all the work.”

Ortiz stepped out to address his controversial video about a week after the news broke, there are currently no reports that mention if he will face the media to face the recent accusations.

According to, Ortiz was called for a first hearing on Friday, where he was expected to render his testimony and clarify the connection between his production company and the kingpin previously mentioned on this article. As well as the nature of his relationship with both suspects. No information about this matter has been released.
