The Mexican Marina announced the capture of Jesus Alfredo Guzman Salazar, 26, son of drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, who had been captured in the last hours in an planned operation.
Whereas the exact location has not been revealed, it was reported to be in Zapopan, Jalisco. The operation began days before the capture, Army and Marina elements were deployed at that time. Presently, this is breaking news, with scarce details, however an official announcement and presentation of the younger Guzman will take place in the next few hours, or possibly tomorrow.
Last week the US Department of Treasury announced sanctions against Guzman Salazar and his mother Maria Alejandrina Salazar Hernandez, age 53. Two other of Chapo’s seven known children were listed of those sanctioned; Ivan "El Chapito”Guzman Salazar Lopez, age 35 and Ovid Guzman Lopez age 22.Click to enlarge
Sanctions authorize authorities to seize any property of those listed in the U.S. and could potentially prosecute anyone doing business with them, or assisting them in business.
