The Wall Street Journal on January 8, 2014 released the following:
“By SAMUEL RUBENFELD
The U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control placed Kingpin Act sanctions on a senior lieutenant of the Sinaloa Cartel.
Jose Rodrigo Arechiga Gamboa, who is also known as Chino Antrax, controls Los Antrax, which provides security and protection for Ismael “Mayo” Zambada Garcia and his family, and is responsible for eliminating Mr. Zambada Garcia’s rivals, Treasury said.
Mr. Arechiga Gamboa also handles transport and logistics for Joaquin Guzman Loera, who leads the Sinaloa Cartel, Treasury said. In addition, he worked with a Sinaloa cartel lieutenant killed by Mexican authorities in December, Treasury said.
Mr. Arechiga Gamboa “represents the next generation of hyper violent drug traffickers,” said Adam Szubin, director of OFAC, in a statement.
Treasury said Mr. Arechiga Gamboa was charged Dec. 20 in a sealed indictment by a grand jury in the Southern District of California with two counts of narcotics trafficking violations. He was arrested 10 days later by Dutch authorities at an Amsterdam airport, and the indictment was unsealed Jan. 3, Treasury said. The U.S. is seeking his extradition.”
