MEXICO CITY — Mexican prosecutors said Tuesday they have caught a leading opium trafficker for the Sinaloa cartel in the southern state of Guerrero. The Attorney General’s Office said Vicente Carrillo Salmeron is suspected in the killings of law enforcement officers and a local politician.
Prosecutors alleged Carrillo Salmeron oversaw the growing and trafficking of marijuana and the trafficking of opium and weapons. They called him “one of the main causes of violence” in the region.
