Goodbye El Chapo, there is a new leader in Sinaloa

Translated by El Profe for Borderland Beat from La Silla Rota

In their annual report on drug trafficking, the DEA places Caro Quintero as the leader of the cartel along with Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada. 

                    

Rafael Caro Quintero, ”El Príncipe" or "El Narco de Narcos" is back according to the United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and came to stay in control of the Sinaloa Cartel in the absence of Joaquín "El Chapo "Guzmán Loera.

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) called Mexican cartels the biggest criminal threat to the United States.

In the Annual Evaluation on the Drug Threat (NDTA), the DEA details that the distribution of drugs in The United States is not carried out directly by the Mexican criminal organizations but by local networks of distribution through gangs.

For the US authorities, there are six major drug cartels operating in the United States.

The main one is the Sinaloa Cartel, a criminal organization that has two of its four leaders identified, apprehension pending: Ismael "Mayo" Zambada and Rafael Caro Quintero.

While Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán Loera, as well as Dámaso López Nuñez, alias "El Licenciado" are in custody.

On August 24, 2016 the magazine Proceso conducted an interview with Caro Quintero in hiding. On that occasion he said: "I am not at war with anyone; El Chapo and El Mayo are my friends," he said that he dedicated himself to planting marijuana because "somehow we had to survive."

Caro Quintero was then 63 years old, a man six feet tall, with a tanned complexion and calloused hands.

For his capture, the United States government offered a reward of 5 million dollars, and in Mexico he is accused of rejoining the drug trade and unleashing a war against The Sinaloa Cartel

After 28 years in prison, in August 2013, he was released from the Preventative Prison of Guadalajara on the orders of a collegiate court.

Days later, the Attorney General of the Republic (PGR) obtained two arrest warrants against him: one to extradite him to the United States and another to spend 12 more years in prison, which, according to the PGR, remains pending in Mexico.

Caro Quintero, son of Emilio Caro Payán and Hermelinda Quintero, was born in October 1952 at La Noria ranch in Badiraguato, Sinaloa.

Caro Quintero founded the so-called Guadalajara Cartel together with his friend and compadre Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo and Ernesto Fonseca Carrillo "Don Neto."

The Battle for the Sinaloa Cartel


Incarcerated for 28 years accused of drug trafficking and the death of a US federal agent, and released in 2013, Rafael Caro Quintero, capitalized on a struggle within the family of El Chapo disputing Sinaloa Cartel territory.

At that time, Alfredo Beltrán Guzmán, "El Mochomito" (now already detained), would have joined the 'R-1', Rafael Caro Quintero, former head of the Guadalajara Cartel, to recover the territory that today is in control of the Sinaloa Cartel.

In southern Sinaloa, outbreaks of violence - visible in massacres in the mountains and attacks of police chiefs in cities - reflect the rebirth of a new dispute between the Pacific Cartel and the Beltrán-Leyva Cartel.

The old rivals return to dispute the control of a long natural corridor that crosses the mountain range, from the limit of Nayarit to the municipality of San Ignacio, they have allied groups that venture from the states of Chihuahua, Durango and Nayarit.

The long strip in which the municipalities of Escuinapa, Rosario, Mazatlan and San Ignacio are located has been the scene of continuous armed clashes.

From January to June of [2017], the number of homicides in Sinaloa grew 11%, increasing from 497 in 2015 to 555.

In May and June [of 2017] specifically, there was a rise in murders in Mazatlan from 17 last year to 29 in [2017]. Also, the municipality of El Rosario, to the south and the scene of the dispute, registered 3 homicides the previous year and in 2016 there were 8 in the same period.

On June 23, in a meeting with businessmen and media in Mazatlan, the commander of the Third Military Region, General Alfonso Duarte Múgica, identified the groups in conflict as the Pacific Cartel and the Beltrán-Leyva Cartel. Officials from the state security area confirmed the version to LA SILLA ROTA based on data found in a criminal camp discovered in the community of Recreo in Mazatlan.

The Criminal Network

But the story goes much further than just the rebirth of a dispute between the Sinaloa Cartel and the Beltran-Leyva Cartel.

The type that circulates is that after his release from prison, Caro Quintero spoke with Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada and Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman about going back to business, which they did not like.

The one who did not react well was Caro after hearing that he would have to pay right of passage through the territory controlled by the Sinaloa Cartel.

Determined to seize the "Golden Triangle,” an area between Durango, Chihuahua and Sinaloa, Caro would have taken advantage of the arrest of "El Chapo " to infiltrate the cells of gunmen in different areas of Sinaloa and annul the rival cartel.

According to the available data, the Sinaloa Cartel fragmented after the arrest of Guzmán, initiating a dispute over absolute control between the three different heads.

Apparently "El Mayo" Zambada and Caro Quintero would have reached an agreement in the absence of "El Chapo "

  2. Corrupt government knew better than to release this individual. Money has always influenced everything and just about everyone in Mexico. Where criminals and government are often one of the same!
    America needs to stop all financial aid to that country. Evidence clearly shows that such financial aid has never benefited citizens from both countries.

  4. so a guy stands behind bars for 28 years and after he comes out from prison he becomes more powerful than chapo's family. if you ask me, that's a big pile of bs. i don't deny that CQ is not back in business, but he's not that powerful as they make it look...

    1. What if he was still working during those 28 years. Maybe, just maybe, with El Chapo getting sent up North, this opened a crucial vacancy that needed to be filled by someone with the knowledge and experience to run an operation that big. Running a multi tier cartel that big ain’t as easy as people think. RQC has forgotten more about the game than most have learned.

  5. Where would Caro get enough muscle to infiltrate Chapo cells after being locked up for 30 years? Seriously? Mochomito? I remember his interview and it was assumed he was flat broke and hiding in a shack in the mountains.

    Other things I've read say he has lots of businesses in Jalisco, and lots of cash. I hear he is beefing in border towns too. What do you guys think about this?

    1. The old farts have people working for them that have modern equipment and knowledge of this to put to work. They also have the respect and backing of large capos like Mayo and Chapos kids to begin their carrer anew.
      It is not impossible to imagine this cooperation between drug lords.
      As far as money is concerned this guy RQC NEVER had billions of dollars. STILL DOES'NT. This fuckin rumor began when RCQ offered some 30 years ago to pay for Mexicos external debt. His offer was made at a time when Mexico had a far smaller debt to begin with plus it was never made to be payed in a lump sum but rather more in payments over the course of years if he was allowed to work.
      Mexico never agreed to these terms and arrested him.
      Goes to show that Mexico is not as "bad" as some people lile to mention also.

  14. Reeks of narco-politics (=bribery & corruption) at the highest level!

    RCQ is released and a few months later Chapo is in his place. Only to 'escape' with obvious govt complicity. Soon enough caught again and sent north.

    Conclusion:
    RCQ paid the most for the crown and is now king.

    1. RCQ did not pay more. He did pay some money but after 28 years locked up he was not going to pay anywhere near what Chapo had to pay to even be concidered for release. This is specially true since Chapo did not want to spend one day in prison hence his escapes. Poor bastard Chapo simply ran out of luck.

  19. El Mayo goes with the flow and that’s why he has sustained what he has for 40 plus years. Mayo will go along with RCQ instead of the Chapitos because he is from the old school and he as a code to live by. If the didn’t want to charge RCQ to do business there would be not dispute. As usual the Chapitos acting like spoiled brats and with that behavior it will cost them money. I know a lot of the narco experts on B.B. will call bs and say the DEA don’t know shit but I will say this....The DEA is more accurate with there intel then any other agency that dabbles in the drug market. Yes, they get some info wrong but the great majority of the intel is legit.

  21. Yup this is true, DEA knows exactly where everyone of these guys are but they dont move in right away, either to observe them and learn about them and accumulate charges to build a case good enough to fuck them good. Yes they work with narcos and make deals with them but thats only to get their trust and get as close as possible to them to the point where the narcos believe they have bought them and think of them as another corrupt official as they are used to in mexico and when they least expect it theyre captured look at vicente zambada perfect example. Remember to catch these guys you gotta think like them

    1. You've got it all wrong. The DEA, FBI and especially CIA have a history of not only dipping their hands into the drug trade, but also controlling the trade. They paved out paths for cocaine trafficking. Future presidents working for the CIA were evidently involved in the movement of cocaine. What you are saying is wrong. USA has very powerful people that have lied, cheated, stolen and killed their way to political and economical power because of their influences in the drug world. Proof, you ask? Iran fucking Contra.

    4. Mena and the drug trafficking got absconded, hidden, and made a secret of state, because:
      --aalll the money got stolen by ollie and parnas.
      --the hostages were planted by the US for hezbollah
      --Iran and Iraq paid with oil for their weapons, it got sold on high seas and Internatonal waters, until Marc Rich stole and privatized the money
      --the contras lost the war for nicaragua because the US failed to win one more of their wars for profit.
      --nobody addresses the greed and dishonesty of the 80s US drug trafficking politicians, yet, not in public for all to see.
      --Mena and Iran/contra are two faces of the same coin a day nobody should be bragging about who is the bigger cuntroversy

  24. The sinaloa Cartel was the chosen Cartel by the President, the Fed's, the military and for that matter the DEA. El Chapo had become rogue and caused to much heat and instability. Rages was released to bring some stability back to the Cartel. Now, why wouldn't the government give him the backing necessary to put himself in place. This had to happen. It's not rocket science. El Chapo killed to many innocent people. They took Amado Carrilo down for the same reason.
