Post Chapo Capture: U.S. Treasury Sanctions Key Sinaloa Cartel Network

Action Targets Colombian-Mexican Narco Trafficking Network

 WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) today announced the designation of Hugo Cuellar Hurtado, a dual Colombian-Mexican national, for his material support to the narcotics trafficking activities of the Sinaloa Cartel and one of the organization’s leaders, Juan Jose Esparragoza Moreno (a.k.a. El Azul), pursuant to the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act (Kingpin Act).  Six other individuals and ten entities linked to Cuellar Hurtado were also designated. 
As a result of today’s action, all property and interests in property in the United States, or in the possession or control of U.S. persons in which the individuals and entities designated today have an interest, are blocked, and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in transactions with them.
 The President identified Esparragoza Moreno and the Sinaloa Cartel as significant foreign narcotics traffickers pursuant to the Kingpin Act in 2003 and 2009, respectively.  Esparragoza Moreno was indicted on drug trafficking charges in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas in 2003 and is wanted in both the U.S. and Mexico. 
On February 22, 2014, Mexican authorities captured Joaquin Guzman Loera (a.k.a. El Chapo) – the reputed leader of the Sinaloa Cartel and considered to be among the most wanted criminals in the world.  Guzman Loera was identified by the President as a significant foreign narcotics trafficker pursuant to the Kingpin Act in 2001. 
“Mexican authorities achieved a major victory with the capture of Chapo Guzman.  Building on this success, OFAC will continue targeting the finances and operations of the Sinaloa Cartel and its other leaders, including Esparragoza Moreno,” said OFAC Director Adam J. Szubin.  “Today’s action marks the next step in this effort by targeting Hugo Cuellar Hurtado, who poses as a businessman involved in enterprises ranging from ostrich farming to pawn shops.  In reality, Cuellar Hurtado is a longtime criminal who supports illicit drug trafficking activities and promotes organized crime.” 
Cuellar Hurtado has been engaged in drug trafficking activities for decades.  He previously worked for the Medellín drug cartel and shipped cocaine to the United States through Mexico.  In the late 1990s, Cuellar Hurtado began living part time in Mexico and eventually began supplying cocaine to the Sinaloa Cartel. 
Today’s designation also targets six other individuals, including five of Cuellar Hurtado’s family members.  John Fredy Cuellar Silva, the son of Cuellar Hurtado, acts on his father’s behalf and is also providing support to the Sinaloa Cartel’s drug trafficking activities. 

The other family members were designated today because they act on behalf of Cuellar Hurtado and/or John Fredy Cuellar Silva:  Ofelia Margarita Miramontes Gutierrez (Cuellar Hurtado’s current wife), Jenny Johanna Cuellar Silva (Cuellar Hurtado’s daughter), Victor Hugo Cuellar Silva (Cuellar Hurtado’s son), and Gabriela Amarillas Lopez (Cuellar Hurtado’s daughter-in-law). 

Also designated today is Lucy Amparo Vargas Nunez, who manages Cuellar Hurtado’s assets in Colombia.
 The entities designated today include four Mexican companies.  Agricola y Ganadera Cuemir and Cooperativa Avestruz Cuemir are located in Tlajomulco de Zuniga, Jalisco, which is near Guadalajara. 

These companies are engaged in ostrich farming and the breeding of Friesian horses.  Casa de Empeno Guadalajara (a.k.a. Empenos Prestafacil) and Prenda Todo (a.k.a. Casa de Empeno Prenda Todo) are both pawn shop companies in Guadalajara. 
 Further, six Colombian companies were also designated.  Agro y Comercio de Santa Barbara Lagromer, Compania Agro Comercial Cueta, and Inversiones Hunel Ltda. are all agricultural companies based in Bogotá.  Casa Comercial Oro Rapido, of Girardot, Cundinamarca, and Casa Comercial Uni Quince, of Bogota, are both pawn shops.  Hotel Paraiso Resort en Arrendamiento is a lodging establishment located in Rivera, Huila.   
Today’s action was taken in close coordination with the Drug Enforcement Administration

  1. I'm some what curious if all this new information is a direct result of the arrest of Joaquin Guzman. Is the former worlds most wanted man singing to the authorities? The same way his associates snitched and lead to his apprehension.

    1. The fact is that the juarez people have a right to hate on chapo. Also a fact is that the juarez cartel is a shadow of its former self. Fact is most of the drugloads busted entering into El paso tx. belongs to c.d.s. Also and this is a personal opinion Vicente Carrillo is or was a piece of shit. The aztecas are even worse pieces of shit than el viceroy so if they are aloud to be and independent organization in mexico I feel sorry for juarez.

  42. Love these comments oh luk at Chapo's frightened face. What is he to do smile ru fuckn serious at 6am in the morn I would also luk like that.

    All you other idiots Chapo WILL/IS a LEGEND in the drug game/wars. Don't kid yourself you all can believe what you want but he will go down as a legendary narco trafficar

    Also WAR ON DRUGS its SOOOOOO FUNNY to watch you all sayn oh it will be better now etc. Well killings have been goin on since the begining of the drug trade. All you are so brain washed the drug war WILL NEVER END or NEVER EVEN HAVE A DENT in it without drugs cia,fbi, ice would have no jobs and the politicians would loose there second income

    I hate to e the bear of bad news but the war on drugs will continue STRONG AS EVER getting Chapo in my opinion only that its a reward to MX president who really knows I know I don't that was my opinion. Putting him behind bars DOES NOTHING to the drug game it will continue on and may even getn stronger but not weak

    ReplyDelete
  43. all this means only that the military are going for the sinaloa cartel, their greed really has no limits, and look for zeta style takeover, kidnappings, extortion and wholesale murder.
    good luck sinaloans, you're gonna need it, only el mayo and el azul now, but the people that carried out their orders, may not be so easy to handle, in that case, nada va a cambiar.

But, yeah, its funny how when SHORTY dont have his crew, he's a Mitch... Can someone assist me on where is his CALI stash warehouses, I'll split it with you..

  57. @3.11 it is not really chapo loving,it is only that some people deserve more respect, and the fact, proven, that the motherfucking maruchanerazzz deserve no respect at all, military bearing or not, por putozzz. @11:26the mexicans are getting kicked out of the way, by the bigger bosses that need to move their heroin from afghanistan,no middle men needed, it all goes straight to the distributors to the grameros, the colombians get the cocaine back,===>(in exchange for the US military bases it hides in the deep colombian craters undercover, ready to assist on the venezuelan spring the venezuelans have coming for not giving in to the privatizationing bigger boys that want the venezuelan oil anyhow, free! now! pinches comunistas!!!)<=== Without middlemen, colombia to the US planes, straight, no scales, a few mexican will keep the chinese meth and a little heroin,and grifa, the non-medical yerba,to keep the dea,atf,nsa bp,ice busy,chasing after their own tails, i will keep my CHIVA... so do you believe now that there are bigger bosses that are bad men, and that mommy warned you about them,Snow Whites?

  58. Guzman is a writer's day dream. Alluding the law 13 years is the stuff of legends. He is a killer by his own admission. His drugs kill, too, making Chapo a member in good standing of the Death Merchants' Billionaire Club. Mayo & El Azul & Guzman are linked to the mid '80's Iran-Contra mess & Kiki Camera's and the DEA pilot's killings, because it was their cocaine in the mix that gave the Contra's movement the $ they needed to by arms with, US Congress had refused citing the Boldon Act. Caro Quintero was wronged by the lot of them. Chapo should serve 28 years in Caro Quintero's same jail cell.

  59. it was the CIA's rogue agents cacaine, and their grifa and their money that Kiki's DEA fucked up...
    what i don't get is how all that money could not cook nicaraguaand daniel ortega still is the president, and there are a few more socialist dictators on the banana continent, i'm sure the Caleros, the rogue agents, the bushes, felix ismael rodriguez and associates STOLE MOST OF ALL THE MOTHERFUCKING MONEY, same thing happened in vietnam/laos, same CIA rogue agents, same airplane supported drug trafficking, same alienating of the natives affections, same shitty results, same air america, same shitty results, what the hell is wrong with america, the US deserves"rogue agents" that at least can do the dirty jobs better while stealing all the dirty money...

  60. I'm amazed at some people comments about Viet Nam and Laos when they didn't even served, I'm sure they can't even locate these countries in a map. Also commenting about CIA and DEA, when anything they may know about law enforcement they learned while doing time in the county jail on some kind of bullshit petty theft charge.

  61. petty crimes got us in jail, rogue agents that ruin the reputation of the sacrosanct US institutions should be sat on count dracula's poles and burned alive...for being so dumb stupid and evil...

  62. @3:54 hey jihadista kamikaze of the crooks hiding under the wide all inclusive tent of the US institutions, they are using you to perpetuate their evil actions and the fact that GREED more than PATRIOTISM moves their actions, when you lump together the good honorable people that served their country with the crooks that got in the mix you don't do yourself a favor.
    ---the US institutions do not need anybody defending them.
    ---crooks that infest the US patriotic institutions need defenders.
    ---people that blindly defend crooks like jihadista kamikazes, are dumb or have an agenda, or both, their suicidal missions won't do any good for their side.
    ---by the fruit you'll know the tree.
    --how do you explain that after helping uncle HO so much, the chinese communist slave holders got more american jobs, money, technology and weapons than they can handle?
    -of course, if you can't find your it with both hands, you are not going to be able to feel when corruption is bitting, chewing and clawing at your ass...
