A son of Sinaloa drug capo "El Azul", Juan Jose Esparragoza Monzon, was reportedly arrested in Culiacan on Wednesday night. He was arrested with several other individuals in downtown Culiacan, while he was dining at a restaurant called Paseo del Angel. The detention by Federal Police specialized in narcotics was completed without firing a shot.
Esparragoza Monzon is the son of Juan Jose "El Azul" Esparragoza Moreno and Gloria Monzon Araujo, who has been sanctioned by the US Treasury Department for using a network of gas stations in Culiacan to launder proceeds that are allegedly obtained through criminal enterprise.
The 44 year-old son is reportedly married to Gloria Beltran Leyva, the sister of the leaders of the notorious Beltran Leyva Organization, who carried out a protracted battle with other Sinaloa capos, particularly Joaquim "El Chapo" Guzman Loera, following the arrest of brother Alfredo "El Mochomo" Beltran Leyva in 2008.
