DEA and colombian police captured Chapo Guzman´s money launderer.
Dolly Cifuentes Villa is accused of working for Chapo Guzman and Sinaloa Cartel
Police in Colombia have arrested Dolly Cifuentes Villa in a wealthy neighbourhood of Medellin. Police say she laundered money for the Sinaloa drug cartel in Mexico.
Head of the Colombian police Gen Oscar Naranjo said Ms Cifuentes, 47, was “a high-ranking link between Colombian and Mexican drug dealers”.
According to the US DEA, which took part in the investigation leading to Ms Cifuentes’ arrest, she managed 32 companies in Colombia and 17 abroad, including in Panama, Mexico, Brazil and the US.
The police chief said her arrest would make it more difficult for the Sinaloa cartel to launder its multi-million dollar profits from the drugs trade.
Gen Naranjo said that after the killing of her brother Francisco in 2007 (he worked for Pablo Escobar) , Dolly Cifuentes became a key associate of Joaquin “Shorty” Guzman, the most wanted drug dealer in Mexico.
