After the capture of Rafael Caro Quintero, different versions of the operation that put him behind bars appeared. Scenarios include versions about the participation of the DEA. At the same time, the Mexican journalist Héctor de Mauleón assured that Kamala Harris was the one who revealed the capo’s location to President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

According to the journalist, the vice president would have told the Mexican president that a DEA team had located the founder of the Guadalajara Cartel at a point in the municipality of Choix, in Sinaloa.

Such an affirmation somehow supports what was said by Anne Milgram, head of the DEA, who revealed that the anti-drug agency cooperated in the operation or its design.

“Today, our incredible DEA team in Mexico worked with Mexican authorities to capture and arrest Rafael Caro Quintero,” Milgram reported hours after the capture.

According to Harris’ conversation, Caro Quintero was detected by DEA agents before he was arrested in Sinaloa last Friday, July 15.

“Harris offered to deliver to the Navy (Mexico) the information that a DEA team, which operates in San Diego, California, had managed to collect for three months,” the columnist detailed.

Caro Quintero is a criminal accused in the American Union of the kidnapping, torture, and murder of Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, a DEA special agent, in 1985.

The journalist says the capo’s arrest in Mexico comes amid strong pressure for the immediate extradition request by the United States government.
