    Sinaloa Cartel Fentanyl Lab Busted in Mexican City Hall Building

    Sinaloa Cartel Fentanyl Lab Busted in Mexican City Hall Building

    Mexican federal investigators discovered an active fentanyl lab belonging to the Sinaloa Cartel in Mexico City.

    The discovery was the result of an investigation by the Attorney General’s Office of Mexico, according to local media. Authorities executed a search warrant inside a building housing the city hall for the Azcapotzalco municipal government, located in the northwest section of Mexico City. The raid took place on the weekend of December 8, but information was not released to the public until days later. One person who oversaw and managed the lab was arrested, according to the Attorney General’s office.

    Federal investigators found various chemical substances, numerous bags containing blue fentanyl pills, approximately 50 cans of a liquid, and a pill presser. All were believed to be used for fentanyl manufacturing. Officials also announced the seizure of several vehicles, communication equipment, and ammunition of various calibers. The seizure was believed bound for the U.S. markets.

    Fentanyl, often referred to as “synthetic heroin,” is blamed in part for the opioid overdose crisis in the United States. The Attorney General’s office handed over custody of the case to the Office of the Special Prosecutor’s Office for Organized Crime Investigation (SEIDO).
    Approximately two months ago, investigative elements of the same agency located a house belonging to the Sinaloa Cartel near the Benito Juárez City Hall. Federal authorities found weapons, drugs, and nearly one million dollars and detained a male identified as Adolfo Jesús Coronel Beltrán, believed to be a cousin of Sandra Aviña Beltrán, better known as the Queen of the Pacific, according to the BBC. Aviña Beltrán was a Mexican drug cartel leader who was extradited to the United States. She was later released and deported back to Mexico. Aviña Beltrán was considered a key link between the Sinaloa Cartel and Colombian drug lords.

    The Sinaloa Cartel is stepping up its production and trafficking of fentanyl to the U.S. markets. Many recent seizures are linked to the same organization. These include a 26-pound bust in November in northern Mexico and a 44-pound find in Maryland.

    Mexican Cartel-Connected Fentanyl Ring Busted in Maryland, Say Feds


    AFP12 Nov 2018314


    The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Maryland announced the indictment of three men who were allegedly distributing a large amount of fentanyl for the Sinaloa and Tijuana Cartels.

    A federal grand jury indicted Nevone McCrimmon, 47, of Edgewood, Maryland; William Elijah, 51, and Terrance Mobley, 50, both of Baltimore; on the federal charge of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute 400 grams or more of fentanyl. The indictments were returned on October 24, and unsealed on October 30, 2018. If convicted, the defendants each face a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in federal prison and a maximum of life imprisonment.

    According to the indictment and other court documents, the defendants are allegedly high-ranking members of a Baltimore-based drug trafficking organization that imports and distributes heroin, fentanyl, and others into the metropolitan area. The defendants allegedly obtained drugs from a Miami-based organization with ties to the Sinaloa and Tijuana Cartels.

    Beginning in fall 2017, the defendants regularly met with a courier from Miami to deliver large sums of cash. In exchange, the drug trafficking organization would arrange for kilogram-quantities of narcotics to be delivered to the defendants. According to court documents, the narcotics would be delivered by the cartel to a contact in Ventura County, California, and then shipped to the Maryland-based defendants.

    Law enforcement reportedly seized 20 kilograms of fentanyl and more than $500,000 USD.

    The indictment was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Robert K. Hur; along with representatives of the Drug Enforcement Administration, Baltimore Police, Baltimore City Sheriff, Baltimore County Police Department, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE), and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).

    “Fentanyl is one of the most lethal threats facing Maryland right now. As little as two milligrams of fentanyl can be a lethal dose, and the 20 kilograms of fentanyl seized in this case to date is enough to kill 10 million people—more than one and a half times the population of Maryland,” said Maryland U.S. Attorney Robert K. Hur.

    The DOJ declared the Sinaloa Cartel as one of its top-five transnational targets. The cartels use drug trafficking and other criminal activities to obtain power, influence, and money while protecting activities through a pattern of violence and corruption. To combat this threat, the DOJ formed the Transnational Organized Crime Task Force to coordinate and optimize efforts to dismantle its priority targets.
