Secretive operation nets dozens of Sinaloa cartel members

DEA, FBI, BP, ICE were all a part of this, "Operación Mexicana Diablo Exprés"...

Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman's cartel took another massive hit over the weekend after dozens of its members were arrested in a secretive cross-border operation, officials said. It's unclear, however, if Guzman's recent arrest had anything to do with the unusual operation by Mexican and American officials.

The highly secretive, daylong law enforcement operation around the Arizona border with Mexico resulted in the arrest of two dozen alleged high-level members of the Sinaloa, according to a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman.


The sting known as Mexican Operation Diablo Express took place all of Friday as numerous law enforcement agencies converged on Lukeville, Arizona, which sits on the border with Mexico.


Homeland Security Investigations, a unit of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, helped Mexican authorities nab 24 alleged members of the Sinaloa Cartel, one of Mexico's biggest drug-trafficking organizations, who were operating around Sonoyta, Mexico, and the U.S. border, spokeswoman Gillian M. Christensen said. The DEA, FBI, Customs and Border Protection and Arizona state and local agencies were on hand to assist.

"The targeted Sinaloa cell has been responsible for the importation of millions of pounds of illegal drugs, including marijuana, heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine, into the United States from Mexico during its existence. The organization is also responsible for the smuggling of millions of dollars in U.S. currency, along with weapons, into Mexico," Christensen said in a statement.

The operation was conducted "with utmost secrecy" and took all day Friday as numerous law enforcement officers worked in both Lukeville and Sonoyta, bordering cities that are on the route to the Puerto Peñasco, the popular beach destination many Americans know as Rocky Point.


ICE helped Mexican federal police into the U.S. to keep them safe during the operation, Christensen said.

The sting also netted the seizure of several assault-type weapons and hundreds of pounds of drugs.

"ICE applauds the Government of Mexico for their bold action in taking down this criminal organization and for their continued pressure on the Sinaloa Cartel throughout Mexico," Christensen said.

The arrests are the latest blow to the Sinaloa Cartel after the arrest of drug lord Guzman on Jan. 8, six months after he tunneled out of a top-security Mexican prison for the second time.

The Mexican government says it is cooperating with an extradition request for Guzman from the U.S.

As they await the extradition proceedings, Mexican officials are taking no chances with his detention. Guzman is now being moved around the maximum-security Antiplano prison on a regular basis. According to El Universal, he was in seven different cells over the course of his first five nights back at Antiplano. They make the cell changes at random, meaning he can spend hours or a couple days in any given location.

The newspaper says prison staff have deployed sniffer dogs trained specifically to detect Guzman's distinct odor, installed hundreds of new cameras, and reinforced the concrete floors of at least some cells with steel.

The 24 people arrested on Friday have not been identified. They are in the custody of Mexican authorities, and the U.S. will seek extradition.

    1. Lol that's like someone saying there's not going to be anymore mass shootings in the US by the end of the year! It's impossible because the cartels are already too powerful enough to be taken down, even if all the capos are locked up or dead because there's always going to be someone to replace them

    3. 5:20 epn is shutting down nothing, he is just taking over drug trafficking, just like in colombia, kick pablo escobar out, and the replacements have been the owners of drug trafficking and the presidential politicians, no matter what anybody says, corruption just got worse after escobar was gone, same thing in mexico...

    5. Just like 'Tio' said; nothing will change when you lock up the 'Capo's' The business will just go one. The problem when you lock certain Capo's down, you will have the chance of becoming the business more violent. It's like groups like the Sinaloa Cartel who are withholding smaller, more violent groups from using alot of violence. Because they are kind of blocked and affraid for groups like Sinaloa cartel. So in some crazy kind of way, we know that 85-90% of the drugs used in USA is coming from Sinaloa cartel. If the Sinaloa cartel would not exist anymore, this percentage would be taken by a large number of smaller groups; it would be more chaotic, more violence and a lot of hyena's who would be happy to take even only 1% of this amount. So in my opinion it is better the way it is right now. I also don't like violence, but it's better when there is one big group(Sinaloa cartel), whom everyone is kind of scared of.

    6. These mass shootings are examples of the effects of propaganda and scare tactics on those that "think" that guns is the solution to everything that traumatizes their feeble minds...
      --by those that hope to sell them guns for their money, but not protection, and who sell their weapons to the decent and to the criminals alike, to the militarized "police" and to drug traffickers, with no ID required, and who have bought senators, congressmen and even presidents of the US to pass no liability legislation in favour of the weapons merchants...
      --on occasion a gun toting criminal will be prosecuted, even killed while resisting arrest, except when he/she is one of the high and mighty...or gets others to do his/her dirty deeds, like private military contractors, some former US military like col. James Steele. Ret. Who did not make "general" due to his dark past as an assassin in vietnam and CentralAmerica...helped by the American Death Squads he dedicates his life to create...

    1. Your comment is interesting. I am curious to said rumors because I was under the presumption that both Los Memos and Salazar family work for Chapo. Im wondering if members from both factions may have been arrested in this operation? Maybe you can also clarify the following: During Chapo's second capture and imprisonment, wasn't there a huge struggle for Sonoyta between Los Memos and Salazar family?

    2. That's a lie CHAPO fixed beefs between them when he was out songs is back to business why do you think they got so many those are people from both memos and salazars all gente nueva

    3. Yes both of them are from the Sinaloa cartel however this is Sonora. The majority of the state is run mostly by local families which are aligned or associated with the Sinaloa cartel, parts of Sonora are run by Beltranes. Salazares and memos had an agreement up until last year, massive killings started when apparently Adelmo Nieblas betrayed the Salazares so after a couple of months they negotiated a truce. Basically this is two families going at it which is very common in Sonora. They can be from the same cartel but still if there is different families involved there will be some fighting.

    8. So Memo was recaptured in the operation. Just doesn't make any sense the level of arrogance Memo would have to return to Sonoyta after escaping and being free. The arrangements Chapo had already made with both factions should have been enough for Memo to live out the few years he has left. What a shame. I feel for the population who are going to endure the harassment of the police and narcos. I just can't get over how Mexico allowed U.S Law Enforcement to step foot on Mexican soil in a enforcement capacity. I just wonder what the real story behind this operation was. Is the U.S. after something more than a bunch of pack packers? Who in that group is a cooperating witness the U.S. needed to save? Just seemed like overkill to me. There has to be more to this story. I call bullshit!

  14. Unless there was a secretive meeting going on between the top capos of the Sinaloa cartel there and most (if not all), where present, this police raid will only disrupt the CDS operations in the state of Sonora and maybe to some extent its operations along parts of northwest Chihuahua and eastern baja Cal and maybe northern Sinaloa! Lets wait and see or hear more info before calling this cartel hurt, injured or just plain gone.

    2. Yes, I too remain unimpressed with this (or any other anti-cartel operations reported in the news). People are always waiting under the wings of the "upper class" in a drug cartel, take one out, another one fills his role within minutes.

      Total waste of tax payer's money, this drug war. Governments on both sides of the border are lying hypocrites. They say they want to put a stop to it. But really they are all on the take from the cartel's profits.

      And really, what kind of idiots actually believe that they want it to end? All those corrupt cops would no longer have a job. Unless . . . like at the end of alcohol prohibition they make something else illegal . . . Gee, what could that be?

  21. Sounds like there is a snitch in the organization. Id be very wary of meeting in lowland areas. Some comments say the Feds are putting out the cartel. Its more like they've extinguished a couple of camp fires but the forest is still burning. Too bad but Narco culture is ingrained in Mexican culture for EPN to eliminate it. Its more like PR stunts hes doing to improve his popularity ratings. Good luck with trying to fool the constituents.

    2. That's all it is a word on the street by somebody that don't know anything. Chapo is way more powerful than Mayo and Rafa. Rafael is out because of El Chapo. You better learn the real
      Story of El Chapo from the American side, they are the ones who want El Chapo DEAD and not arrested. They had an order 3 years ago to kill El Chapo with drones, not arrest but to Kill him. You want to know who was more powerful read the FLORES twins court testimony. They said El Chapo prices were CHEAPER than El Mayo and his work was always better. After one of those meetings, el mayo asked el chapo to keep the price a little higher and because they were compadres Chapo agreed. They were all bosses who share power, some stronger than the other in certain areas Chapo can't kill Mayo without the military double crossing El Chapo and neither can Mayo kill Chapo. No way some little as sicario can get that close. Read Craig Pettis court testimony who was personally liked by Don Arturo Beltran. Petites a BLACK dude used to tell us who the boss was, well the one who's last word was more influential. He said major decisions were always ended with these words "wat does shorty say".

    6. Some people have dreams, you know. They want to live the dream. Okay, that doesn't mean that the dream should cost lifes etc. But the moment someone has chosen the walk this path to reach their dream, it's clear that it can't be done without violence. Maybe you don't even want to use violence, but most of the times you are forced to do so. I mean you have to defend yourself. The best defense is offence and that's how it goes...

      But the main idea is that some people have dreams and are born for another kind of life. They want more out of life and in Mexico there are two ways of reaching this: Becoming a narco or becoming a politician. Well if you haven't had any high level education, there will be left to become a narco. Real sad, but true!
