Mexican soldiers have arrested Ovidio Limon Sanchez, a top lieutenant of the Sinaloa Cartel and one of the DEA’s highest profile targets.

Captured in Culiacan, the capital of Sinaloa state on Mexico’s Pacific coast, Limon Sanchez was described by that country’s Defense Ministry as being on the ten most-wanted list and “one of the most important operators in the Guzman Loera criminal organization”.  That name refers to Sinaloa Cartel leader Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, who is Mexico’s most sought-after fugitive.

Limon Sanchez has been identified by the DEA as responsible for the purchase, transit and distribution of cocaine routed to Los Angeles, and is under an extradition order from US federal district court in California.  The US government had offered a $5,000,000 reward for his capture.
