Mexico’s Attorney General’s Office (FGR) announced the arrest of Juan Pablo Quintero Martinez (‘El Pablito’), nephew of Rafael Caro Quintero, former leader of the Guadalajara Cartel. El Pablito was arrested in Atizapan de Zaragoza, State of Mexico, on a homicide charge.

Investigators say he is wanted for the November 2020 murder of a man in Azcapotzalco, a municipality in the Mexico City area. The FGR believes that El Pablito may also be involved in drug trafficking and kidnapping in Mexico City and the State of Mexico. He was imprisoned at the Reclusorio Oriente penitentiary and was assigned to a judicial authority in that jurisdiction.

“[El Pablito] is presumed innocent and will be treated as such in all stages of his legal proceedings, just as long as he is not found guilty by a court per Mexico’s National Code of Criminal Procedures,” the FGR confirmed.

His uncle Caro Quintero was one of the founders of the Guadalajara Cartel. Mexican authorities say Caro Quintero is reportedly leading a criminal group in the state of Sonora. In the US, he is wanted for the 1985 murder of Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agent Enrique Camarena Salazar. 

His eyes were blurred by Mexican officials to preserve his presumption of innocence, as required by Mexican law.
