Police agents of Mexico City detained a subject who, allegedly, had been sent by Ovidio Guzmán López, El Ratón, one of the children of Joaquín Guzmán Loera, El Chapo, sought by the US authorities for drug trafficking in the Sinaloa cartel .

A report by the Capital Safety Secretariat indicated that a 33-year-old man was located in an area during a ​​criminal incidence within the Venustiano Carranza neighborhood. He tried to make an escape as he was surrounded by uniformed police. He was finally arrested in the Popular Rastro neighborhood. 

Unofficial reports indicate that the arrested man is Irminger Moreno, a citizen of Culiacán. Supposedly, he traveled to Mexico City to arrange pacts with criminal groups settled in this entity. Police didn’t release more details about this link.

Ha was identified as an emissary for Los Chapitos and was wearing a hat with the initials JGL at the time of his arrest.

The driver was pulled over, told to descend from the car to be questioned. But when he descended he began to run away on foot, meters ahead he was arrested. After searching him, 30 cocaine wrappers, two sachets with marijuana and a digital scale were found. 

Ovidio Guzmán López is an offspring from the relationship El Chapo maintained with his second wife, Griselda López Pérez, also identified as Silvia Escite Muñoz. Joaquín, Edgar and Grisel Guadeloupe were also born from this union.

Edgar Guzmán López was the one who made enough illicit money for his brothers Ovido and Joaquin, to invest large amounts in cash to buy marijuana in Mexico and cocaine in Colombia, according to US authorities.

However, Edgar was executed by hitmen under the orders of his father in May 2008 in Culiacán, Sinaloa. He supposedly was confused as a Beltrán Leyva enemy and shot when he was in a shopping center. The assassins involved were punished with death.

Since then Ovidio and Joaquín began to grow in the criminal business. One of their innovative operations was exporting contraband ephedrine from Argentina, when they began to experiment with methamphetamine production. Currently they supervise 11 narco laboratories in Sinaloa that manufacture 3 thousand to 5 thousand pounds of the synthetic drug each month.

On April 2, 2018, the two were charged by a grand jury in the District of Columbia for violating sections 959 (a), 960 and 963, referring to the conspiracy to distribute more than 5 kilograms of cocaine, 500 grams of methamphetamine and 1,000 kilograms of marijuana.

After an arrest warrant was issued for extradition purposes against Ovidio Guzmán López by the US government, which Mexican authorities were trying to carry out in a failed operation on October 17, 2019.

The case culminated with chaos in the capital of Sinaloa. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador ordered that the son of Chapo Guzmán be released in the so-called Culiacanazo fiasco. 

El Ratón is sought by the US and five million dollars is being offered by the US for his capture. 

According to army reports, the official balance was 8 deaths and 16 injured, between agents or civilians, as well as alleged criminals; In addition to 49 inmates released from the Aguaruto prison. 

By December 15, 2021, the State Department offered a $ 20 million reward for the leaders, including Ivan Archivaldo and Jesús Alfredo Guzmán Salazar, the first children of Chapo Guzmán who are also accused of drug trafficking.

Their incursions in Mexico City have been identified in the Bravo neighborhood of the Morelos colony, where the Union Tepito Union is established.

  1. Just like la union atzcapozalco guy who got captured , this guy was set up in the same modus operandi , no emissary driving around with a scale and that amount of drugs.

  2. An emmisarry running around with a scale and a few 20s? Lmao.. sinaloa down bad. Smh.. i seriously doubt but who knows

  3. Maybe there wasn't an active arrest warrant for the emissary. The article doesn't mention it. The police, realizing they had a big catch and loathe to simply release him, planted the kit on him to hold him for awhile. Entirely plausible.

    1. This is the most plausible explanation I think

  4. If by emissary you guys mean a douchebag with a hat then yea he is

  5. That guy is not so bright with his JGL hat running around in Mexico city lol
    Ain't no chilangos wearing that crap

    1. Yo that hat is popular all over Mexico , I seen it everywhere

  6. That hat might get you killed in the wrong part of Mexico...

  7. If that's Ovidio's emissary and that's what he had on him then Chapitos are doing bad. Your locale trying to get by neighborhood dealer runs around with a scale and some 20s, not big time cartel emissaries. Or was this article just written for some laughs?
