A second judge sentenced César Tapia Quintero, considered to be one of Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada's main logistical operators for the shipment of drugs from Mexico to the United States, to criminal proceedings for the crime of organized crime.

The indictment was handed down by the control judge assigned to the Federal Criminal Justice Center of Almoloya de Juárez, State of Mexico.

This judicial process is in addition to the criminal case that César Tapia is facing for crimes against health and violation of the Firearms and Explosives Law, derived from his arrest in flagrante delicto on August 7 in the Revolución neighborhood in Culiacán.

In a public hearing and at the request of the Attorney General's Office of the Republic (FGR), a District Judge Specialized in the Accusatory Criminal System with residence in the federal prison "Altiplano" ordered justified preventive imprisonment against "Lupe" Tapia's brother and the closing of the complementary investigation in six months, term that will be completed on February 15, 2024.

According to criminal case 244/2023, along with César Tapia Quintero, criminal proceedings were also opened against his two co-defendants Óscar René Medina Casas and Carmen Julissa Tapia Melchor, both charged with the crime of organized crime.

On August 15, it was announced that Lupe Tapia's brother was transferred to the federal prison known as "Altiplano", considered a maximum security prison due to his relevance within the Sinaloa or Pacific Cartel.

  1. Maybe he wlll share a cell with oviduo

  2. This is el e1 uncles his last name is tapia as well but different first maidens names

  3. Don’t know how big of an impact it will have but a big La Línea leader, El Menchaca has been captured. I know the area and it’s a pretty huge deal because he had the areas in very good control. He wouldn’t allow killings, robberies, and biggest of all the sell or consummation of meth. So his capture may cause some shit from A. People fighting his spot. And 2. Los chavos or others attempting to get in to those areas such as Ojinaga, Aldana, and surrounding areas.

  4. So clear Ismael giving up on a few of his independents

    Para todos los incredulos que dicen que La Linea esta muy chingona porke trae a La Empresa y o Mexicles con ellos.
    Este cuates de El Menchaca dice aqui que se entrego solo a la Mirgra de Estados Unidos.
    Quieres decir que se culeo El guey a los putasos contra otro cartel. Sinaloa lo mas seguro.
    For all those that say La Linea along with Empresa gang and or Mexicles is tough. This article states this guy El Menchaca turned himself in to US authorities.
    This means he's running scared and more than likely from Sinaloa enemies.

  6. The Mexican government needs to stop wasting time and go after Ismael Zambada García.
