February 24, 2021

JOAQUIN “El Chapo” Guzman Loera’s wife was arrested on Monday in Virginia in connection with her alleged involvement in international drug trafficking.

Emma Coronel Aispuro, 31, was arrested at Dulles International Airport, the Department of Justice announced in a press release. 

She is set to appear in federal court on Tuesday in the US District Court for the District of Columbia.

Aispuro faces charges of participating in a conspiracy to distribute cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin and marijuana for importation into the US.

In addition, Aispuro is charged with allegedly conspiring with others to help Guzman Loera, a Mexican drug lord, escape from Altiplano prison in Almoloya de Juarez in July 2015.

Guzman was arrested in January 2016 in Mexico and Aispuro allegedly took part in plotting another prison break with other individuals. 

Guzman Loera, the former leader of the Sinaloa cartel, was extradited to the US in January 2017. 

A jury in the Eastern District of New York convicted "El Chapo" in 2019 for leading the cartel.
