Meza Flores is formally accused that since 2005 he conspired with others to traffic at least 500 grams of methamphetamines, five kilograms of cocaine, one of heroin, and at least one ton of marijuana

The Criminal Division of the Department of Justice of the United States, filed a formal indictment in a court of the District of Columbia, in Washington, against the Sinaloa chief Fausto Isidro Meza Flores, aka “El Chapo Isidro”, alleged leader of the criminal group “Los Mazatlecos”.

Meza Flores is accused of , since 2005,  conspiring  with others to traffic at least 500 grams of methamphetamines, five kilograms of cocaine, one of heroin, and at least one ton of marijuana. [Quantities are minimum required for a Life sentence]
"El Chapo Isidro" is also accused of possession of weapons.

In mid-February 2018, “El Chapo Isidro” obtained an amparo from the Sixth District Court, against an order of apprehension for organized crime, so he cannot be arrested, or even wanted for said crime.

According to public documents of the Federal Judiciary, cited at that time by the newspaper El Universal, the trial of guarantees extended until last December 1, when the Seventh District Court, based in Los Mochis, granted the protection to “El Chapo Isidro.”

Previously, on August 25, 2017, Meza Flores's lawyers filed a lawsuit, which must now be resolved by a Sinaloa Collegiate Court, and whose magistrates took the case since last January 4.

At the end of September 2017, the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced that in conjunction with the Bureau of Antinarcotics and Procuration of International Justice of the US State Department, it offers a reward of five million dollars for information that leads to the capture and / or sentence of "El Chapo Isidro".

The FBI indicated that Meza Flores was linked to prosecution through a federal formal indictment in a District Court of Columbia for violations of narcotics and firearms laws, "according to section 21 USC sections 959, 960 and 963; and section 18 USC section 924 (use of firearms) ”.

According to the Bureau of Antinarcotics and the Procuration of International Justice, "El Chapo Isidro" is the alleged boss "of an important cartel based in the state of Sinaloa [Los Mazatlecos]". Earlier, the FBI said, Meza Flores was a senior ringleader of the Beltrán Leyva organization.

"El Chapo Isidro" was considered the right hand of Alfredo Beltrán Leyva, aka "El Mochomo", before his arrest in 2008.

The US Bureau of Investigation indicated that, any information about the Sinaloa kingpin should be communicated at 202-278-2000, dialing option 4, or contact the embassy (at 55-5080-2000) or nearest consulate , or fill out an online form at

Earlier, on January 17, 2013, the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), of the US Treasury Department, announced that Meza Flores' assets had been frozen, as well as seven of the members of his family, and three companies that were related to his criminal organization.

In May 2012, a District Court in Columbia issued an accusation against the Sinaloa kingpin for conspiracy to distribute five kilograms of cocaine, 50 grams of methamphetamine, one kilogram of heroin, and one thousand kilograms of marijuana, as well as use of a weapon fire.

Born in 1982, in Bamoa, a Guasave union, Meza Flores belonged as a teenager to the Sinaloa Cartel. But, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Sinaloean drug trafficker moved to the Beltran Leyva Cartel, of which he was one of its last leaders.

In that group, also known as "El Chapito" Isidro, became the most important rival of Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, aka "El Chapo" Guzmán, when he traced the routes of his escape, according to the US Department of the Treasury. 

Also by Ismael Zambada García, aka "El Mayo", after the breakup of Arturo Beltrán Leyva, "El Barbas", with the Sinaloa federation, in 2008, due to the arrest of his brother Alfredo Beltrán, "El Mochomo" .

For this, he formed an alliance with the previous leader of "Los Mazatlecos", Santiago Lizarraga Ibarra, alias "El Chagún". The Office of the Special Prosecutor for Organized Crime Investigation (Seido) considered this organization - also known as "The Office" - as extremely violent.

Meza Flores has escaped several operations that have been implemented by the Ministry of National Defense (Sedena), the Secretariat of the Navy-Navy of Mexico (Semar) and the Federal Police (PF), including one, in 2013, when sailors arrived at a wedding in the community of Santa María del Oro, Nayarit, where the narcocorridos singer, Remmy Valenzuela died.

“El Chapo” Isidro was one of the 122 “priority objectives”, supposed criminals that were listed because they were considered by the Federal Government, as highly dangerous and the main generators of violence in the country.

    Isidro started out as an Gunmen for Amado Carrilo Fuentes in 1997 but left ACFO when the amado carrilo passed away. Isidro was originally from the hard working family, he always done well at the School he was utter CLEVER and he didnt started out his carrer right from the Streets, he was never an THUG, but things changed when he got involved with the Bad guys, engaging in the street fights...
    after Juarez, he went to Sinaloa where he got close to El Mochomo and went along with the Beltran Leyva brothers. His Low profile and Ultra Loyalty to the BLO even after the split with CDS in 2008, made the Beltran Leyva brothers to make him in the Charge of their Plazas. Even during the el Barbas drug schyzophrenia times he never thought anything bad about El Chapo Isidro. el Chapo Isidro became the right hand of el Hector Beltran Leyva, and he became famous when his crew
    Los Mazatlecos with backing of Los Zetas managed to ambush and cut off Sinaloa Cartel caravana moving in Sonora, 2010 killing 21 sicarios of Gente Nueva and Antrax, it was the battle where the el Pocho Antrax comitted Suicide to not get captured by BLO and it allies.

    1. You should both get off this guys nuts 🥜

    2. Pocho anthrax didnt commit suicide their.

      He committed suicide in la poma, after his brother Chris Castro committed suicide in pico rivera ca.
      Even his corridos mention it.

      People who dont know would believe your story. Dont spread lies.

      Lmao @ "Amen"? Really 😂

    3. Looks like someone does not know the meaning of amen---allow me:

      Meaning in agreement. It means “it is so” or “so it be.” Amen is derived from the Hebrew āmēn, which means “certainty,” “truth”

    4. Is that you Sicario filling in the blanks in lalaland?

    5. 10:18 Why did those kids commit suicide?

    6. @10:18 CDS nuthugger detected! El Pocho Antrax cowardly committed suicide inside the Car after ambush started and he knew that he had no backing up. 05 did also died out there and also lot of R5 MAN

    7. Amen was encrypted in modern religion because of amen ra .... So when u use it actually gives praise to the Egyptian human God .....look it up it's all there just gotta dig ....js

    8. 1022 lmao poncho ántrax wasn’t anywhere near that ambush you imbecile lmao he shot himself in a house

    9. Didn't work that long for ACF as he "died" on the 4th of July of 1997🤔

  2. "Cha Cha Cha" aka TeChoco aka Yo te amo chivis.....multipersonilty disorder can be helped ask your shrink

  3. That's a big bounty, I am sure mecernaries will be out looking for him. Seems they are after the Sinaloa cartel more, than any other cartel, Mencho is next.

  4. Isidro is the perfect objective for AMLO to give to the US. He's not CDS or CJNG. He's big, but not as big and the US media will trip that another "Chapo" has been picked up or killed.

    Hugs > Bullets

  5. Singer Remmy Valenzuela did not die he was only injured from the cross fire. He is also said to be a close relative to Chapo Isidro

  6. Remmy Valenzuela isn’t dead he was shot at that wedding! He’s still alive and well making music

  9. Race : white ( hispanic) 🤔

  10. There is only one El Chapo his name is Joaquin Guzman Loera .A poor innocent farmer who now serves a sentence in gringolandia

  11. Chapo isidro was making moves in jalisco, Cuernavaca morelos , Monterey, aguas calientes but Mencho came along and made him retreat back to Sinaloa while zetas pushed him out of monterrey.. PEOPLE. Here say he's a genius and this and that but capo wise, he's not a top capo like botas blancas, mayo or chapo.. If he was so smart and tough he wouldn't be running back to sinaloa 😆
    There's a rumor that chapo isidro is now working with cds to go against their BULLY cjng.. Is there any truth to that?

    End up dead!
