According to El Universal, the DEA updated its most wanted list to include Ivan Archivaldo Guzman. He is wanted for trafficking and distribution of fentanyl in the United States.
His brother Jesús Alfredo Guzmán Salazar, alias ‘Alfredillo’, already occupies ninth place on the list. Alfredillo has been on the DEA’s most wanted list since September 2018.
The DEA added another member of Los Chapitos to the list
After the DEA updated its most wanted list to include Iván Archivaldo Guzmán, it decided to add another member Los Chapitos. This is Liborio Núñez Aguirre, who is known as ‘Kareteca’.
He identified himself as one of the cartel operators and has been accused of trafficking large amounts of fentanyl from Mexico to the United States, in pill and powder form. According to the DEA, he negotiated the sale in the US of approximately 70,000 fentanyl pills on behalf of Los Chapitos between the months of March and April 2022.
