Wife of El Chapo the Mexican Drug Lord Arrested In US

The 31-year-old Emma Coronel Aispuro the wife of Mexican drug cartel boss Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman 63, was arrested at Dulles International Airport in northern Virginia, United States.

She was arrested on Monday on charges of helping her husband continue to run his drug trafficking cartel while he was in prison.

She is a regular attendee at El Chapo’s high-profile U.S. trial two years ago where El Chapo was convicted of trafficking tons of drugs in US.

The U.S. Department of Justice charged Emma Coronel Aispuro with conspiring to distribute heroin, cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamines unlawfully into the US.

She might appear in a federal court in Washington on Tuesday.

She is also charged as per an attached affidavit with helping El Chapo escape from a Mexican prison in 2015 and again in 2016 before he was extradited to the United States.

As per a Mexican official who wanted his identity to be hidden said Emma’s arrest appeared to be solely a U.S. initiative and she is not wanted in Mexico.
