High Ranking Member Of CDS, Antonio Marrufo, "El Jaguar",Extradited

El Armadillo For Borderland Beat From DOJ

Jose Antonio Torres Marrufo (aka “Jaguar”) has been extradited from Mexico to face federal racketeering charges in the Western District of Texas, stated U.S. Attorney John F. Bash; Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent in Charge Kyle W. Williamson, El Paso Division; FBI Special Agent in Charge Emmerson Buie, Jr., El Paso Division; and, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Special Agent in Charge Jeffrey C. Boshek, II, Dallas Division.

Torres Marrufo remains in federal custody awaiting his initial appearance in federal court tomorrow morning in El Paso

“Through close and sustained cooperation with our partners in Mexico, we are bringing cartel leaders to justice,” said DEA Special Agent in Charge Williamson.  “This extradition sends a message to those leaders that we will relentlessly pursue them, no matter where they are or how long it takes.”

“The FBI El Paso Division is pleased with Mexico's efforts to bring to justice a leader from one of the most violent criminal enterprises that has terrorized the El Paso and Juarez area,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Buie. “The cooperation between our two countries' law enforcement agencies is a powerful force in disrupting the Sinaloa Cartel Organization's criminal activities that instill fear and threaten the safety of our citizens.”

“No one person, community or country should endure the brutality described in these charges,” stated ATF Special Agent in Charge Boshek. “The cooperation between U.S. and Mexican officials sends a clear message of our collaborative commitment to investigate and prosecute members of these criminal organizations.”

In April 2012, Torres Marrufo was charged in the same federal grand jury indictment as Joaquin Guzman Loera, aka “El Chapo,” Ismael Zambada Garcia aka “Mayo,” and 21 other individuals responsible for the operations and management of the Sinaloa Cartel (Cartel) charging them with violating the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.

The fourteen-count grand jury indictment, returned on April 11, 2012, charges conspiracy to violate the RICO statute; conspiracy to possess more than five kilograms of cocaine and over 1000 kilograms of marijuana; conspiracy to import more than five kilograms of cocaine and 1000 kilograms of marijuana; conspiracy to commit money laundering; conspiracy to possess firearms in furtherance of drug trafficking crimes; murder in furtherance of a continuing criminal enterprise (CCE) or drug trafficking; engaging in a CCE in furtherance of drug trafficking; conspiracy to kill in a foreign country; kidnapping; and violent crimes in aid of racketeering.

According to the indictment, the purpose of the Sinaloa Cartel is to smuggle large quantities of marijuana and cocaine, as well as other drugs, into the United States for distribution. Laundered proceeds of drug trafficking activities are returned to Cartel members and are used in part to purchase properties related to the daily functioning of the Cartel, including real estate, firearms, ammunition, bullet proof vests, radios, telephones, uniforms and vehicles. In an effort to maintain control of all aspects of their operations, the Cartel and it’s associates, including members of the Gente Nueva (“New People”) and the Artistas Asesinos (“Murder artists”), kidnap, torture and murder those who lose or steal assets belonging to, are disloyal to, or are enemies of the Cartel. This includes the Juarez Cartel, a competing drug organization who at the time was led by Vicente Carrillo Fuentes, as well as it’s enforcement arm known as La Linea and the Barrio Aztecas. Oftentimes, murders committed by the Cartel involve brutal acts of violence as well the public display of the victim along with banners bearing written warnings to those who would cross the Cartel.

The indictment references two acts of violence allegedly committed by members of the Cartel. First, the indictment alleges that in September 2009, Torres Marrufo, Gabino Salas-Valenciano, Fernando Arellano-Romero and Mario Iglesias-Villegas, under the leadership of Joaquin Guzman and Ismael Zambada, conspired to kidnap and murder a Horizon City, Texas, resident. Specifically, Torres Marrufo ordered the kidnapping of the victim to answer for the loss of a 670-pound load of marijuana seized by Border Patrol at the Sierra Blanca checkpoint on August 5, 2009. After the kidnapping, the victim was taken to Juarez where Torres Marrufo interrogated him and ordered that he be killed. On September 8, 2009, the victim’s mutilated body was discovered in Juarez.

Second, the indictment alleges that on May 7, 2010, Torres Marrufo, Fernando Arellano-Romero and Mario Iglesias-Villegas, under the leadership of Joaquin Guzman and Ismael Zambada, conspired to kidnap and murder an American citizen and two members of his family. Specifically, Torres Marrufo caused an individual in El Paso to travel to a wedding ceremony in Juarez to confirm the identity of a target. The target was the groom, a U.S. citizen and a resident of Columbus, NM. Under Torres Marrufo’s orders, the groom, his brother and his uncle were all kidnapped during the wedding ceremony and subsequently tortured and murdered. Their bodies were discovered by Juarez police a few days later in the bed of an abandoned pickup truck. Additionally, a fourth person was killed during the kidnapping at the wedding ceremony.

This investigation resulted in the seizure of hundreds of kilograms of cocaine, and thousands of pounds of marijuana in cities throughout the U.S. Law enforcement also took possession of millions of dollars in drug proceeds which were destined to be returned to the Cartel in Mexico. Agents and officers likewise seized hundreds of weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition intended to be smuggled into Mexico to assist the Cartel’s battle to take control of one of the key drug trafficking corridors used to bring drugs into the U.S.

This investigation was conducted by the DEA, FBI and ATF together with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations, U.S. Border Patrol, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Marshals Service, El Paso Police Department, El Paso Sheriff’s Office and Texas Department of Public Safety.  The Department of Justice’s Office of International Affairs provided significant support in securing and coordinating Torres Marrufo’s arrest and extradition.  U.S. Attorney Bash also expresses his appreciation to the U.S Attorney’s Office in New Mexico; Attorney General of Mexico Alejandro Gertz Manero and his attorneys; and, to law enforcement authorities in Mexico for their assistance.

Upon conviction, Marrufo faces up to life in federal prison.

It is important to note that an indictment is merely a charge and should not be considered as evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

  2. Este pendejo nunca va a salir de la carcel en E.U. por andar de vivito el guey. Su mas grande error fue participar en y o mandar a secuestrar uno de sus mismos miembros en El Paso TX porke le debia dinero a el grupo de el y llevarselo a Juarez para despues matarlo y mutilarlo cortandole las manos.
    Por mas que cante el guey y o coopere con la DEA o hasta tenga buenos abogads como el Chaputo este guey ya valio madres igual que este ultimo.
    Quisiera que lo entrevistaran a el guey en television despues de que le den su sentencia y les dijera a todos los putos narcos si valio la pena andar en esos pedos.

  3. “Terrorized the El Paso area” yeah fuckin right, the only people who were terrorizing the people of El Paso was American LE constantly telling people that Mexican cartel members were going to invade El Paso and rob/rape/murder everyone in town. El Paso is consistently one of the safest cities in America. Fuck this Federal Bullshit Institute agent for continuing the false trope that cartels pose a threat to everyday Americans. The only American residents that El Jaguar terrorized were the dumbasses who were already in the game.

    1. The thing is the US side and their partners in Mexico make the different outfits fight and turn against each other with the consequence of their robbing, betraying and Murdering each other with great wishes for revenge. All that After turning them on to drug trafficking for themselves, starting with the CIA, DFS PJF and a DEA the US government turned against their own agents like Hector Berrellez, Tosh Plumlee, Phil Jordan, sandy gonzalez, Cele Castillo...

    2. 4:16 kidnapping in El Paso or anywhere on the US, and kidnapping people of the government is a serious offense, and when they got the body tends to get worser.

  5. That's so hypocritical that the US is policing Mexican criminals when the weapons that where used came from the US, Mexico should start prosecuting americans as well. The US prosecutes Mexicans supplying drugs for the American demand. But what about Mexicans prosecuting Americans for the demand on guns?

    1. They should demand extradition of ag eric holder and whatever govt folks were involved in that fast and furious fiasco. Imagine? And if the u.s. says no then they should never allow another extradition.

    2. Don’t forget that these idiots all had visas to enter the US and meet up with ICE to give all info on Linea/Aztecas while they where committing they’re crimes on both sides of the border, all of them (gente Nueva) are on the DEA page with crystal clear photos

    8. 440 you need to wake up and read more BB, cartel members create crime on American soil, especially trafficking of drugs, hell yes, America will act, sooner they get caught. Furthermore, cartels are not forced to buy weapons from US, bad hombres smuggle them to Mexico. Lastly you may feel sympathy for this guy, but look at all the crimes he did, including murders.

    13. Yes 844 I agree with what your are saying. The US side does do something to combat the war on drugs, every year millions are given to Mexico. But very minimal is done, soon Mr T. will cut off funding.

    16. To 656am I do keep up with BB on a daily and the same way you said Mexico ain't forced to buy guns, the US is not forced to buy drugs but on the gun topic you should Google "Operation fast and furious" and learn a little something

      Delete
    17. 11:42 you need to check where about 36 BILLION DOLLARS the US "gave to Mexico" to fight the war ON drugs went:
      to subsidies for US based corporations bent on getting their corporate Queen Welfare Payments supplying uniforms, weapons and training for abusive melitary and polesias that increased crime and mass murders, kidnappings for ransom and forced displacements
      But Mexico and the mexicans got nothing but murdered.
