The Most Prolific Narcotics Trafficker In Central America
The DEA began investigating Marllory Dadiana Chacon Rossell in 2008 for leading one of the biggest drug trafficking rings in Central America. She was responsible for delivering and distributing multiple tons of cocaine headed for the United States. She was also an expert in money laundering and reportedly moved tens of millions of dollars every month. Chacon Rossell launched Bingoton Milionario, a privately run lottery, in order to hide the enormous amount of money she brought in. Her actions drew the attention of the United States Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). Then she confessed.
There were reports that Chacon Rossell and the Guatemalan Hayron Borrayo Lasmibat contributed $2 million to the political party Partido Patriota in 2011. The following year, Chacon Rossell, 40, started working with the DEA and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Florida. In 2014, she pleaded guilty to drug trafficking charges in Miami. She admitted in court documents to conspiring to deliver five or more kilos of cocaine knowing they would be trafficked into the United States. Because she gave up key information, prosecutors recommend she serve less than a 10-year sentence. The US Treasury Department labeled her “one of the most prolific narcotics traffickers in Central America”.
Drug Cartel Assassin
In 2012, Mexican police arrested 26-year-old Maria Jimenez, also known as “La Tosca” or “The Tough One.” Jimenez is a female drug cartel assassin whose hit squad reportedly took part in 20 murders. She was paid $1,700 a month by Mexico’s drug cartel Los Zetas to kill people in several cities in Northern Mexico. Maria was allegedly directly involved in the murder of a police detective. The Zetas cartel controls a large portion of the drug trade in north and east Mexico. It was formed in 1999, and many members have police and military experience.Please Scroll Below for NEXT Page to continue
