Latin America: Sinaloa Cartel Involved In Scheme To Use Unwitting Airline Passengers In Latin America To Transport Drugs.
The Sinaloa Cartel, headed by fugitive drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, has been implicated in a plot to smuggle cocaine into Mexico from Peru's Jorge Chavez International Airport - located in the capital city Lima - under the names of unsuspecting airline passengers, reported El Universal. The so-called "Narcoviajes" or "Narco Flights" scheme involved corrupt Jorge Chavez airport personnel swapping passengers' legitimate luggage for baggage containing up to 25 kilos of cocaine. Once the drugs were en route, traffickers would alert their counterparts in Mexico, who would retrieve the packages upon the plane's arrival. Authorities believe three to five pieces of luggage containing drugs left Jorge Chavez airport every week in 2014 and is ongoing.
