CITY OF MEXICO, Mexico.- T-shirts, caps, and figures made with resin, are the products with the face of 'El Chapo' Guzmán that have gone on sale at the local San Jesús Malverde, located in Culiacán.
The products with the image of Joaquín 'El Chapo Guzmán' began to be popular after the capo was found guilty in a US court.
According to Radio Fórmula, it is worth noting that the trial against Guzmán in New York revived Sinaloa's sympathy for the capo, thanks to the " narco-culture" and the gratitude that inhabitants of communities of the Sierra de Badiraguato and Culiacán have for him.
"Right now, because of what is happening, many people come to ask him (Malverde) to give him peace of mind (al Chapo), to give him strength to endure everything that is happening. Many people have come and many candles have been found with their name on pieces of paper. The people come and thank you for the favors and also ask for the Chapo, "said Jesús González, in charge of a chapel in Culiacán.
It is worth mentioning, recently they have increased the visits of people who are going to ask for the Chapo or to thank favors in the chapel of San Jesús Malverde, a temple that honors a bandit known as the " Santo de los Narcos" , protector of the poor .
