Top Sinaloa Drug Boss, Limon Sanchez is Captured

An alleged senior leader of Mexico's notorious Sinaloa drugs cartel has been arrested, officials say.
Ovidio Limon Sanchez was captured by soldiers in Culiacan - the capital of Sinaloa state on the Pacific coast.

He is accused of organising huge shipments of cocaine into southern California and of running a network that distributes it throughout the US.

He faces extradition to the US, which had offered a reward of up to $5m (£3.13m) for his arrest.

Mr Limon Sanchez is alleged to be a close ally of Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, the fugitive leader of the Sinaloa cartel, who is Mexico's most wanted drug lord.

Bulk shipments
"The detention of Limon Sanchez significantly affects the Guzman criminal organisation in its capacity to traffic cocaine and weakens its ability to generate financial resources," defence ministry spokesman Col Ricardo Trevilla said.

He was captured by the Mexican army "without a shot being fired", Col Trevilla added.

Mr Limon Sanchez allegedly smuggled tons of cocaine into southern California and brought back millions of dollars to Mexico in cash shipments, according to a notice on the US State Department website.

He is the latest in a series of alleged top drug traffickers to be killed or captured in Mexico since President Felipe Calderon began deploying the military to fight the cartels in 2006.

But critics of his policy say these successes have not slowed the flow of drugs and may have exacerbated the violence by triggering power struggles within the cartels.

  6. Anybody have any better insight on this guy? I had never heard of him before. He had a hefty bounty on him so he must have been someone of importance. CDS guys are going down with out a shot fired, reason might be because they feel they will get out in a few years. Something to live for.

    If Z-40 knew where this guy was he would of had this guy killed already.. They call him a "snitch" for having supposedly ratted on his associates from Z.

  10. I want to hear from those who complain that Calderon is in cahoots with Chapo. Anabel Hernandez, Proceso, etc. come on let's hear it. Explain to me how this guy gets busted if his boss owns Calderon.

    Not a big fish? The US has $5M on his head. He will soon be released? No, he's going to the US when Mexico is done with him. What then? Window dressing? This guy handled ops. He made the dope and the money move. He's no sacrificial lamb.

    Come on you guys that piss and moan every time CDG or CDJ or some z gets popped. You say, oh CDS never gets busted because Chapo and Calderon have a deal. So why is this major operations guy in jail?

  14. To all those that want an explanation here it :

    The reason why this guy was caught is because all you hear is that the Sinaloa Cartel is the most powerful and has yet to have a REAL blow to their Cartel(Obviously, making the Mexican Goverment look really bad,for NOT attacking all the Cartels the same,YOU guys are idiots if you dont believe the Mexican Goverment is helping the Sinaloa Cartell.This,once again, wasnt the huge blow they were looking for but still a high ranking member of the Cartel.Imagine the foot soldiers behind this operation cruising through Culiacan,you gotta give respect.By( Big blow) I mean Real Charasmatic Leaders(AZUL,MAYO,CHAPO).

    If im not wrong ALL the other cartels have suffered the death/arrest of an important Founder/Boss in their organization,Why not the Sinaloa Cartel???

    Its obvious Calderon and his Federales/Militares/maybe even Marinos are supporting a CERTAIN Cartel,why happens to be the Sinaloa Cartel.

  16. There is currently a "realignment" for the federation. This was probably one of the casulties. Also, there is a rumor that Zambadas people are fighting with chapos people in Culiacan.I don't know if its true, but chapos peoples are being taken out left and right in Culiacan.

    " If im not wrong ALL the other cartels have suffered the death/arrest of an important Founder/Boss in their organization,Why not the Sinaloa Cartel???"

    What about Nacho Coronel?

  18. What about Nacho Coronel??@7:39 Since the split in 2008 of the Beltran Leyva brothers from the Sinaloa Cartel,and since Nacho was friends with both of them,(this of course, until his son was killed by El Pepino an operater of Hector Beltran),he pretty much went independent/Neutral,since he didnt want/like problems and was trying to integrate a completely independent organization that didnt go through Chapo Guzman.Nacho Coronel practically had his own Cartel.Who do you guys think that CDJNG,and MATAZETAS are??? They are Nacho people that after his suprising death maybe coincidence maybe planned out by chapo himself,but Chapo now has most of Nacho people working for him.

    ***Rumor:It is said that after the death of Alejandro Coronel,in his 20s,Nacho son, Ignacio was never the same,he became more and more sloppy,and bloodthirsty,In other words the guy lost it,Something that Chapo didnt like,because Nacho started attracting too much attention on the Cartel,and heating its operations.
