DEA charges Liborio Núñez Aguirre, AKA “El Karateca,” with trafficking half a million fentanyl pills for Los Chapitos

DEA's investigation into the dangerous world of fentanyl trafficking, linking Liborio Núñez Aguirre to Los Chapitos: $1 million reward.

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in the United States formally charged Liborio Núñez Aguirre, who is known under the nickname of “El Karateca” in the world of drug traffickers, since it was shown that he is linked to the sale of fentanyl pills on behalf of “Los Chapitos,” this is what we know!

In American Post News, we want to tell you that this drug is highly addictive since its effects are similar to those of heroin but more powerful since they cause strong bouts of euphoria, drowsiness, confusion, depression, and death due to respiratory arrest or unconsciousness.

Previously, we told you that the Army seized 400 grams of fentanyl in Sinaloa. Still, now we tell you that if you live in an area where drug dealing is increasingly frequent, you must make a report through the 089 number since this type of crime puts the life and safety of the community at risk.

This is what the DEA accuses “El Karateca “3 of doing.
