The US Department of Justice has reported that Emma has been arrested on charges of international drug trafficking from an airport located in the country’s state of Virginia.
Emma Coronel Aesipuro, the wife of 31-year-old drug lord, has dual citizenship in the US and Mexico. He was arrested at Dulles International Airport on Monday. It is believed that he will be produced before a federal court in Washington on Tuesday. Emma is alleged to have helped her husband ‘Al Chapo’ escape from a prison in Mexico in 2015.

Emma Coronel Aespuro is accused of smuggling cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin and cannabis into the US through the Sinaloa cartel. In addition, she helped to run the multibillion-dollar cartel of her notorious crook husband Joaquin ‘Al Chapo’ Gujman.

Drug smuggling in US in large quantities in 25 years
‘Al Chapo’ was sentenced to life imprisonment in 2019. His Sinaloa cartel smuggled large amounts of cocaine and drugs into the US during his 25-year crime-ridden reign. ‘Al Chapo’ was such a notorious crook. This can be gauged from the fact that he had raised an ‘army’ of his own. Its task was to abduct, torture and murder anyone who came in the cartel’s way.
Who is the drug mafia ‘Al Chapo’?
Born in the year 1957, ‘Al Chapo’ is considered one of the most dangerous crooks in the world. ‘Al Chapo’, coming from a farmer family, took the first step in the drug business by cultivating poppy and cannabis around the house. Gradually, it started supplying these drugs. After this, El Chapo became famous in the world of drugs smuggling. He made Miguel Angel Felix Galardo his godfather. At the same time, in 1980, he became the head of the influential Sinaloa drugs smuggling group in Mexico.
