Felipe Cabrera Sarabia, whose nickname is “the Engineer,” was captured in the Sinaloa state capital of Culiacan and was presented to the media Monday morning.
Guzman is worth more than $1 billion, according to Forbes magazine, which has listed him among the “World’s Most Powerful People.” He has a $7 million bounty on his head, and thousands of law enforcement agents from the U.S. and other countries are working on capturing him.
His cartel controls cocaine trafficking on the Mexican border with California and has moved eastward to the corridor between the Mexican state of Sonora, which borders Arizona.
Separately, Mexican soldiers discovered 13 bodies in an abandoned truck Sunday along with a message that they were killed in a war between rival drug cartels in the eastern state of Veracruz, officials said.
The bodies were found in Tamaulipas state, a few hundred yards from its border with Veracruz, according to the Tamaulipas attorney general’s office.
The area has been the scene of bloody battles between the Gulf and Zetas cartels, and a pair of banners alluding to a rivalry were found in the truck, the statement from the attorney general’s office said.View Entire Story
