This Saturday, the Mexican Army confirmed the capture of José “N”, alias “El Shefo” in the city of Hermosillo, wanted for his alleged connection to human trafficking in four municipalities in the state.

Official data indicate that the man had an arrest warrant dated October 14, 2020, issued by the Federal Attorney General’s Office (FGR) after he managed to escape from the Aguaruto prison in Culiacán, Sinaloa, on October 17, 2019.

Coordinated actions by the Mexican Army and personnel from the Sonora State Criminal Investigation Agency (AMIC) secured “El Shefo” in Sonora’s capital city on November 17.

Continuing with the investigations, the detainee is presumed to be responsible for human trafficking in the municipalities of Altar, Pitiquito, Caborca and Oquitoa, Sonora. For this reason, the detainee was placed at the disposal of the competent authorities so that the legal actions corresponding to the FGR’s case can be exercised.

According to the Mexican Army itself, the joint operations that culminated in the arrest of José “N” were carried out without the need to fire a single shot.
