Chapo Guzmán’s son was extradited to the neighboring country on September 15, where he is accused of five drug trafficking-related charges.
El Raton is accused of conspiring to distribute drugs, being part of a criminal enterprise, exporting narcotics to the United States, carrying out financial transactions with the proceeds of illegal activities and unlawfully using and carrying firearms.
The first image was released by Derek Maltz, a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) official, and corresponds to the moment when Guzmán López was on the plane that transported him to Chicago.
