Mexican drug lord Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, also known as El Mencho, has reportedly sent out a hit squad to assassinate drug kingpin Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman’s sons. The leader of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) is said to have handed the task to a group of trained assassins, dubbed Los 28.
A drug dealer who once worked for drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman is seeking early release from prison due to coronavirus fears. Margarito Flores was once one of the top distributors in the United States for “El Chapo,” and his partner Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada, the leaders of the Sinaloa Cartel.
A former drug smuggler who testified against drug lord Joaquín El Chapo Guzmán during his widely publicized trial has been sentenced to seven years in prison by a court in Brooklyn, New York. Tirso Martínez-Sánchez, 52, was arrested in Mexico in 2014 and extradited to the United States in 2015.
Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán is now a silent observer of the security crisis that he helped create in Mexico and his only connection to the outside world is a television at a maximum-security prison in Florence, Colorado. The former Sinaloa cartel boss now spends his time watching television and reviewing documents related to his complicated appeal process.
The Sinaloa cartel is still the leading supplier of narcotics into the United States. This is despite the arrest of kingpin Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman. This is according to the DEA. The internal power struggles and the violence associated with drug trafficking have continued unabated, but the Sinaloa Cartel has remained unfazed. This is according to DEA’s 2019 National Drug Threat Assessment report.
In October 2019, the Mexican National Guard launched an operation to incarcerate the son of the imprisoned drug kingpin Joaquin El Chapo Guzman. They took Ovidio Guzmán López into custody and thought they had made a big catch. Instead, the arrest of López resulted in the Sinaloa Cartel demonstrating its immense firepower and propensity for violence. Hundreds of hitmen working for the criminal organization ambushed authorities on the streets of Culiacan.
José Sánchez Villalobos, alias “The Lord of the Tunnels,” has been extradited to the United States. This is according to a statement released by Mexico’s Attorney General’s Office. He was one of Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzman’s main tunnel builders and financial operators. Villalobos’ transfer took place on January 10 at Toluca International Airport, where U.S. agents were waiting to take him into custody.
Fallen Sinaloa Cartel drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman most likely had an agreement with Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada, his partner in the organization, on the position of his sons in the event that he was incarcerated. This is according to Duncan Wood, the Director of the Wilson Centre’s Mexico Institute.
The CJNG Cartel, led by Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, aka “El Mencho,” is growing its presence in rural America. According to Edward Follis, a former Drug Enforcement Administration agent, the ruthless drug trafficking network is now infiltrating smaller towns.
On Thursday, gun battles between members of the Sinaloa Cartel and Mexican security forces rocked the streets of Culiacan, forcing residents to take cover. The violence stemmed from the capture of Ovidio Guzman López, a son of convicted drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman.
Today, a Mexican drug tycoon Joaquin Guzman, a 62-year-old, known as El Chapo, has been sentenced to life in prison. Guzman managed to escape from a Mexican prison through a tunnel in 2015 but was later arrested and handed over to the United States in 2017. Guzman was the leader of the Sinaloa drug trafficking group in northern Mexico, which officials say it was the largest supplier of drugs to the United States.
