$3.8 million reward for 'El Chapo' capture; Sinaloa Cartel leader described as 'a complete savage'. At least 34 people have been questioned and Mexican prison officials fired as searchers hunt for notorious drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman. Monday night a recent picture of Guzman showing him with a shaved head and face, and without his trademark mustache that he had when authorities captured him last year. On Saturday it's believed that the Sinaloa cartel leader stepped into a shower at the maximum security prison in Almoloya de Juárez, crawled through a hole and vanished through a mile-long tunnel apparently built just for him. By early Tuesday morning -- despite a $3.8 million reward -- there remains no sign of Guzman.
"The first 72 hours (after the escape) are extraordinarily important here," said Mike Braun, a former chief of operations for the Drug Enforcement Administration who spent years tracking and gathering evidence on Guzman. "And if they don't get their hands on him then, I don't know, we may never see this guy again. Mexican Interior Minister Miguel Ángel Osorio Chong said Monday it was likely prison workers helped Guzman break out. Guzman, he said, was inside a cell with 24-hour closed-circuit video surveillance and a bracelet that monitored his every move. The video system, he said, had two blind spots that Guzman exploited. And he left the bracelet behind before he crawled into the tunnel and made his getaway. #ElChapo#blogdelnarco#narcotrafico#mexicancartel#narco#capo#joaquinguzmanloera#chapoguzman#elchapo#chapo#guzmanloera#carteldesinaloa#badiraguato#sinaloa#culiacan#traficante#sinaloacartel#biografia#coridos#elchapoguzman#guzmancartel
Who will inherit the throne of El Chapo?
Family members of Guzman Loera are disputing the "king of the plaza"
With the recapture of Joaquin El Chapo Guzman, the Sinaloa cartel has fragmented and the violence in this state has been augmented. The dispute is between the family members of Guzman Loera, who seek total control of an organization with major extension on a world level.
It has been a few years since the cartel maintained a structure well cemented that hid internal conflicts, but before the absence of one of the founders, the two principal groups started a fight for power. The factions were headed by Aureliano Guzman Loera, El Guano, who claimed the leadership and Ivan and Alfredo Guzman Salazar.
For inheritance, the sons of El Chapo were profiled as the leaders, but El Guano, his uncle and brother the capo, is who actually had the most power in the interior of the cartel, as agreed by consultant sources in the cabinet of security.
Auereliano, forever under the shadow of El Chapo, with his recapture sought the power, he distanced himself from his nephews and from Ismael El Mayo Zambada, the other found of the criminal organization. El Guano is identified by authorities as the most violent and has control of La Tuna, La Palma and El Nogalito.
To share in the ambush of military convoy in Culiacan, on 30th of September of 2016, with a list of five dead military, the authorities confirmed the information that they were told: El Guano displaced the sons of El Chapo Guzman.
Disputing the power, in December of 2015, Aureliano Guzman fought his capture on the part of the armed forces, later having been identified on a family ranch. However, today he is one of the principal objectives of the Federal authorities. #sinaloa#chinoantrax#losantrax#antrax#cartel#narco#narcostyle#narcoreport#carteldesinaloa#lujosdelnarco#chapoguzman#elcartel#pabloescobar#mexico#scarface#corridos#purosinaloa#culiacan#sinaloacartel#narcocorridos#mafia#borderlandbeat#cjng#narcos#elchapo#balacera#semar#narcotráfico
Part 1: San Diego: Mini Lic lieutenant pleads guilty to trafficking from Sinaloa to tijuana
As Damaso Lopez-Serrano adjusts to live in the Metropolitan Correctional Center in downtown San Diego, a looming structure overlooking the city, and the bay, his close associate Jesus Manuel Salazar-Nunez has pled guilty, on the day he was scheduled to go to trial, in the court of Dsitrict Judge Dana Sabraw, who is overseeing prosecutions against Chino Antrax, and Serafin Zambada-Ortiz. He pled to a three count indictment, conspiracy to import cocaine, methamphetamine, and heroin.
All these cases, the flow chart of how drugs are trafficked across the country through San Diego, stem from Operation Narco Polo, which will be the defining investigation that brought down the Sinaloa Cartel, as we knew it from 2006 to 2015.
From Narco Polo, prosectors assembled indictments against 60 members of the Sinaloa Cartel, starting in 2011, and ending at the end of 2015, though the resounding round of indictments will likely be against what leadership remains, including Ivan and Alfredo, though Ivan is named in the primary case of Narco Polo.
For now, there is Lopez-Serrano, who enjoyed the fans, the glamour, the success of a narco-junior, from his father, the friend of Joaquin Guzman Loera. Lopez-Serrano self surrendered at the Calexico port of entry late last month, the US Attorney's office in San Diego, described him as the highest ranking cartel member to do so. #sinaloa#chinoantrax#losantrax#antrax#cartel#narco#narcostyle#narcoreport#carteldesinaloa#lujosdelnarco#chapoguzman#elcartel#pabloescobar#mexico#scarface#corridos#purosinaloa#culiacan#sinaloacartel#narcocorridos#mafia#borderlandbeat#cjng#narcos#elchapo#balacera#semar#narcotrafico
Ismael Zambada García (nacido el 1 de enero de 1948 ), también conocido como El Mayo Zambada, es un señor de la droga mexicano que sirve como líder del Cártel de Sinaloa. Antes de asumir el liderazgo de todo el cártel, sirvió como coordinador logístico de la facción Zambada-García del Cártel de Sinaloa, que ha ayudado en la exportación de cocaína y heroína a Chicago y otras ciudades de Estados Unidos por tren, buque, avión y submarino
Un ex agricultor con amplios conocimientos agrícolas y botánicos, Zambada comenzó su carrera criminal mediante el contrabando de algunos kilos de drogas en ese momento, luego aumentó la producción de heroína y marihuana de su pandilla, mientras consolidaba su posición como traficante de cocaína colombiana. Cuando el narcotraficante Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo fue arrestado en 1989, su antigua organización se dividió en dos facciones: el Cártel de Tijuana liderado por sus sobrinos, los hermanos Arellano Félix y el Cartel de Sinaloa, dirigido por los ex tenientes Héctor Luis Palma Salazar, Adrián Gómez González, Ismael Zambada García, Ignacio Coronel Villarreal y Joaquín Guzmán Loera (El Chapo). Los señores del narcotráfico de Sinaloa Cartel estuvieron activos en los estados de Sinaloa, Durango, Chihuahua, Sonora, Nuevo León y Michoacán.
En 2006 la administración del presidente Felipe Calderón lanzó una ofensiva contra las redes de tráfico de drogas de México. La Organización Arellano Felix (Cártel de Tijuana), el más grande y más sofisticado de los carteles mexicanos de la época, recibió el golpe de los golpes. Aprovechando la presión que se ejerce sobre el Cártel de Tijuana, otros jefes de la droga, especialmente Ismael Zambada y Joaquín Guzmán, comenzaron a invadir fortalezas en el noroeste de México, llevando a una guerra a gran escala. #biografiasdelnarco#narcotrafico#carteldesinaloa#sinaloacartel#cartelsinaloa#ismaelzambadagarcia#mayozambada#ismaelzambada#elmayo
Mexican mafia - Amado Carrillo Fuentes (December 17, 1956 – July 3, 1997) was a Mexican drug lord who seized control of the Juárez Cartel after assassinating his boss Rafael Aguilar Guajardo. Amado Carrillo became known as "El Señor de Los Cielos" (Lord of the Skies) because of the large fleet of jets he used to transport drugs. He was also known for laundering money via Colombia to finance his large fleet of airplanes. He is regarded as one of the wealthiest criminals in history, with an estimated net-worth of over US $25 billion.
He died in July 1997 in a Mexican hospital after undergoing extensive plastic surgery to change his appearance.In his final days Carrillo was being tracked by Mexican and U.S. authorities. #lahistoriadelnarco#amadocarrillo#727#sinaloa#sinaloacartel#narco#mafia#senordeloscielos
Benjamín threw a first-birthday party for his daughter at his ranch outside Tijuana. A home video shows the cartel family in its prime: the brothers dressed in garishly patterned short-sleeved button-downs, their wives in pendulous earrings and large sunglasses. Beneath a sprawling white tent, guests sipped from brown bottles of beer and red cans of Coke. Alongside an inflatable bouncy castle was a veritable menagerie—not just miniature horses and llamas, but also zebras, reindeer, and ostriches.
Less obvious, but no less exotic, were the cars: the bulletproof blue Toyota 4Runner given to a top AFO enforcer, and next to it the bulletproof white Dodge Shadow that belonged to Eduardo Arellano Félix, the saturnine brother known as El Doctor because he had once been a practicing doctor. Ramón Arellano Félix’s armored Grand Marquis was something out of a video game, wired to deliver an electric shock to any stranger who touched it; in the event of a chase, a button inside would release a trail of oil.
Ramón, the fifth of the seven brothers, was building a reputation as the most ruthless killer in Mexico. Carne asada—“grilled beef”—was the term he used to describe the practice of throwing a body on a bonfire of car tires to incinerate it. Rumor had it that Ramón would sit calmly and barbecue his own dinner in the flames. He wore ruby-, sapphire-, and emerald-encrusted watches and a skeleton belt buckle with diamonds for eyes. He once shot a bouncer at a bar because the man had asked him to pour his beer from a bottle into a cup.#sinaloa#chinoantrax#losantrax#antrax#cartel#narco#narcostyle#narcoreport#carteldesinaloa#lujosdelnarco#chapoguzman#elcartel#pabloescobar#mexico#scarface#corridos#purosinaloa#culiacan#sinaloacartel#narcocorridos#mafia#cjng#narcos#elchapo#balacera#semar#narcotrafico
