Within the framework of the visit of the president of the United States, Joe Biden, to Mexican lands, the capture of Ovidio Guzmán López, which cost the lives of 29 people, was ideal.
“No one has built a judicial investigation”: Alejandro Hope’s dart to the arrest of Ovidio
What now generates uncertainty is whether the judicial processes will be up to the effort that the armed forces put into the arrest of the criminal leader, warned the expert
Ovid, who is also nicknamed “The Mouse”, He is one of the four children of Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, alias “El Chapo”, who would be seeking to maintain their father’s legacy.
Iván, Ovidio, Jesús Alfredo and Joaquín, better known as “Los Chapitos”, they assumed control of a good part of the operations of the Sinaloa Cartel and are considered among the largest traffickers of fentanyl and methamphetamine to the US.
“Los Chapitos” are commonly considered as a single cartel, although they are called by other names such as “Los Menores” or “Los Juniors”. Although very little is known everything seems to indicate that the group of brothers has a strong sense of unity.

The mother of the criminal leader, identified as the second wife of “Chapo” Guzmán, would have offered her support to the families of the gunmen
Ovidio is the name that is mentioned the most of the four, especially due to the events he starred in on Thursday, October 17, 2019, during the failed operation of the Mexican army nicknamed “El Culiacanazo”.
However, beyond that, there is really little or almost no knowledge about the roles played by each of the four brothers within the criminal organization.

Ivan Archivaldo Guzman Salazarthe half-brother of Ovidio Guzmán López, alias “El Ratón”, is usually considered the main ringleader of the faction led by the sons of “El Chapo”.
In this sense, although no authority has confirmed it, Ovidio Guzmán’s main task could have been to expand the synthetic drug business.
He and his brother Joaquín began coordinating shipments of cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin to the United States in 2008.
“El Ratón” could also have spearheaded the organization’s plans to settle in the Mexican capital.
Proof of this would be the plates with the animated image of a rodent, in clear allusion to “El Ratón”, which were found on the 14 emissaries of the Sinaloa Cartel who were arrested on the afternoon of Tuesday, July 12 in San Miguel Topilejo after that they clashed with members of the Citizen Security Secretariat (SSC).
Nevertheless, all remain conjectures because after the capture of “El Chapo” Little is known about the roles and whereabouts of the big drug traffickers.
“Los Chapitos” are no exception. There has been no news of the brothers’ rival for control of the Sinaloa Cartel, Ismael Zambada García, alias “El Mayo”, or the head of the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel (CJNG), Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, alias “El Mencho,” for years. ”.
On January 9, the US government that the capture of The mouse Guzmán López was coordinated with the visit of US President Joe Biden to Mexico in the framework of the X Summit of North American Leaders.
“those things are not like that”, he told the agency EFE a senior US Administration official a few hours before López Obrador received Biden for a bilateral meeting in Mexico City (CDMX) on immigration and drug trafficking.
The also leader of the faction the minorsof Pacific Cartel, appears as one of the main extradition targets for the US for illicit drug trafficking; including fentanylwhose combat was addressed at the Trilateral Summit.
