El Chapo’s Successor?

Well, maybe no longer as the United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has detained him.

The alleged Sinaloa drug-trafficker Dámaso López Serrano, alias “El Mini Lic”, son and successor of Dámaso López Núñez, “El Licenciado”, was delivered Thursday to the DEA in Calexico, California, a small town on the border with Mexicali, where he would have taken refuge in recent weeks.

 

“El Mini Lic”

“El Mini Lic”

During the last months, “El Mini Lic” was the control of the Sinaloa Cartel with the children of Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, alias “El Chapo”, and with Ismael Zambada García, “El Mayo”.

The latter was the one who would have threatened to kill him, according to various security sources in Baja California and the US Customs and Border Protection Office (CBP).

His father, “El Licenciado”, who was detained on May 3 in Mexico City, was the one who, according to information from the federal authorities, helped “El Chapo” to escape from prison in Mexico.

A few days later, on May 7, five Sinaloan men – who according to the Federal Government were escorts of “El Mini Lic” – were detained by the Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena) and the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) In the Tláhuac and Xochimilco delegations of the capital. However, on May 12, a Federal Judge released him and people wonder why.

Then, on May 24, elements of the Special Forces of Sedena and the Criminal Investigation Agency (AIC) of the PGR, arrested in El Dorado, Sinaloa, Pedro Alfonso Domínguez Moreno, alias “El Moreno 14”, alleged operator By López Serrano. At the time of his arrest he carried high-powered weapons engraved with the initials “FED”, which according to the authorities means “Special Forces of Damaso”.

PROFILE OF “THE LICENSEE”

In March 2013, the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the United States Treasury Department identified Lopez Núñez as the chief lieutenant of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The US agency said that “The Licentiate” carried out an “outstanding task” in the drug trafficking activities of “El Chapo” Guzman and that “played an important role” in money laundering and in the international traffic of narcotics.

The OFAC said that Lopez Núñez, also known as “El Concesionario”, helped Guzmán Loera escape from prison in 2001, and “Since then he has become one of the main lieutenants of the Sinaloa Cartel, which is responsible for the shipments Of several tons of narcotics from Mexico to the United States, “declaring that the proceeds of their criminal activities amounted to about 280 million dollars.

According to the PGR, “The Licensee” is required in extradition by a Federal Court of Virginia in the United States. Dámaso “N”, as the authorities identify him officially, is “one of the main operators of narcotics and generator of violence in Sinaloa and southern Baja California Sur.”

Whatever the “Narcos” do, we see no evidence that they present a problem for tourists in Mexicali, or people in the beautiful little town of Calexico,
