The capo was the main financial operator of the Sinaloa Cartel and also responsible for the construction and operation of two of the most sophisticated drug dealers located in Tijuana, Baja California.
According to the official version, Sánchez Villalobos used the tunnels to transfer drugs from Mexico to the United States.
In tunnels insured in Mexicali and Tijuana, instruments were identified that have geolocators (GPS) and the possibility of manual operation and remote control.
In a statement, the Attorney General's Office (FGR) said that in compliance with the Extradition Treaty signed between Mexico and the United States of America, he gave extradition to the government of that country “to a man of Mexican nationality required by a Court California Federal to be prosecuted for crimes of criminal association and against health. ”
Once the stages of the extradition procedure were exhausted, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued the corresponding agreement through which the Government of Mexico granted the extradition of the defendant to the US Government. The agreement was firm and enforceable when the legal remedies to which José Sánchez was entitled were exhausted.
Without specifying the precise date, the statement only indicates that extradition delivery was made at the International Airport of the City of Toluca, State of Mexico, to US agents designated for final transfer to the United States of America.
Sánchez Villalobos was arrested on January 15, 2012 in Zapopan, Jalisco.
