A Local DEA Official Wants Alleged Drug Cartel Chief Tried In Chicago
According to the Daily Chronicle, Mr. Guzman allegedly head of the Sinaloa cartel faces multiple drug trafficking indictments in the United States including one handed up in 2009 by a federal grand jury in Chicago. The indictment named Guzman and others in a conspiracy to import and sell large amounts of cocaine and heroin in the United States. The 56 year old man was captured in Mazatlan, Mexico. The Chicago Crime Commission named Guzman the city’s Public Enemy No. 1 last year, saying his cartel supplied most of the illegal drugs sold in the city. The only other person to have the notorious label was Capone, who earned it in 1930, at height of the Prohibition-era gang wars.
