This was the list of the most wanted by the DEA after the arrest of Caro Quintero

On Friday, July 13, Mexican drug trafficker Rafael Caro Quintero was captured in operation by the Secretariat of the Navy (Semar) in the municipality of Choix, in the state of Sinaloa.

For years, the U.S. government, through the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), had been seeking their arrest on charges of kidnapping, torture, and murder of former agent Enrique Camarena in 1985.

Last May of this year, the U.S. agency released a new reward poster for providing information leading to the arrest of, among other criminals, the founder of the Guadalajara Cartel.

“LAST TIME: DEA launches new cartel campaign to pursue the entire Sinaloa Cartel: Caro Quintero, El Mayo, and Chapitos. $45 million is being offered. The campaign comes amid frustration over the level of fentanyl trafficking and the lack of action in Mexico. Cartel at San Ysidro border,” journalist Ioan Grillo, a specialist in drug trafficking issues, posted on his official Twitter account.

According to the poster, the DEA was offering 20 million dollars to anyone who provided information leading to the arrest of the drug lord from the state of Sinaloa, which translates into 410 million 600 thousand at today’s exchange rate pesos.
