It’s been confirmed that Mexican drug trafficker and favored El Chapo hitman Jose Rodrigo Arechiga Gamboa, also known as ‘El Chino Antrax’, has been executed in Sinaloa, Mexico.
Chino Antrax recently disappeared from the US whilst on probation at a house in San Diego, California. He had recently served a six year sentence for trafficking narcotics, including marijuana and cocaine, into the United States from Mexico. He was paroled in March of this year.
His body was discovered on Saturday inside a luxury BMW, along with two other bodies – Chino Antrax’s sister, Ada Jimena, and her husband, Juan N, were identified as the other two victims. The bodies were found, wrapped in blankets with duct tape, inside the vehicle which was located on a dirt road near to the town of Ayuné, Culiacán.
Chino Antrax – whose name means ‘Chinese Anthrax’ – was released from the maximum security Metropolitan Correctional Centre in San Diego on March 3 and instructed to reside at a house in Southern California. When his probation officer visited the house last week, Chino Antrax had disappeared. He has since been wanted by DEA agents in the US and Mexico.
A court summons stated, “Only weeks after his release from custody and arriving to his supervision district, the offender has absconded from supervised release. His whereabouts is unknown. As a result, his adjustment to supervised release is deemed poor.”
The summons continued, ”The presentence report indicates Mr Arechiga Gamboa planned to reside in Mexico post-release where he reportedly has family.”
In 2014, the narco ringleader was arrested in the Netherlands at the Amsterdam-Schiphol airport on a flight from Mexico. It was reported that he was found due to his social media posts on Instagram. This allowed DEA agents to coordinate with their European colleagues and wait for his flight to arrive. Seven months later, he was extradited to the US, where he was charged with trafficking cocaine and marijuana, and supplying drugs to a gang in San Diego. Following ten months on trial, Chino Antrax pleaded guilty to drug trafficking charges.
He was sentenced to 87 months in prison, and five years on probation.
It’s reported that he collaborated for years with the US attorney’s office giving names, addresses, and other details of the Sinaloa Cartel in the US.
