United States.- The United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has launched a new campaign, which consists of distributing posters with photographs and rewards offered for information leading to the capture of major bosses of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The journalist based in Mexico who works for the American newspaper The New York Times, Ioan Grillo, communicated via Twitter about the campaign, and published one of the posters, which was placed on the border with Tijuana, in San Ysidro.
The journalist, an expert on drug trafficking issues, said that the new campaign is due to the frustration that exists among US authorities at the level of phenanyl trafficked and the lack of action by the Mexican government.
Rafael Caro Quintero appears in the cartel, the most wanted man by the DEA and for whom 20 million dollars are offered; Ismael Zambada García, “El Mayo”, for whom up to 15 million dollars are being offered; Los Chapitos: Iván Archivaldo and Jesús Alfredo Guzmán, for whom 5 million dollars are offered per head; Ismael Zambada Imperial, “Mayito”, son of “Mayo”, Alfonso Limón Sánchez, operator of Chapo, and Alfonso Arzate García, “El Aquiles”. In total, the rewards are the sum of 45 million dollars.
This figure is the one that has been provided previously, however, the objective of the new campaign is to make visible the search for these drug traffickers by the DEA, while sending them the message that they are going after them.
Whoever calls the Drug Enforcement Agency will remain anonymous, with all calls being confidential, as the poster underlines.
