After Joaquín el Chapo Guzmán fell off the search radar of the United States, and while intelligence methods were aggravated in finding the whereabouts of Rafael Caro Quintero, it is Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes “el Mencho”, who has become the main objective of the United States.
However, as recorded in the United States judicial archives, Mencho has already been in the hands of US authorities, having been arrested when he was a simple drug dealer, in 1994, in Sacramento California.
He was then arrested by DEA agents, who handed him over to a group of federal prosecutors, who after filing charges for drug trafficking, sentenced him to 5 years and 6 months in federal prison.

El Mencho did not finish his sentence, three years later he was released thanks to  good behavior, although immediately after he was repatriated to Mexico by Tijuana, shortly after returning to his native Aguililla, Michoacán.
Nobody has been able to specify what Oseguera Cervantes did during all those years, although it is possible that he has joined the groups of Abigail González Valencia Los Cuinis, who then did business with a faction of the Sinaloa Cartel that operated in that region, and that very he was possibly controlled by Ignacio Nacho Colonel.

During the following years the governments of both countries lost track of him, and it would not be until March 13, 2014 that the DEA relocated him, indicating him as one of the main operators trafficking drugs to the United States, which after the Cuini’s arrest, and the death of Nacho Coronel in 2010, would have been at the head of the Cartel Jalisco New Generation  or (CJNG).
Oseguera Cervantes is accused of trafficking all types of drugs to the United States, including cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine and heroin, and that has a network that supplies distributors in the Chicago, New York, Georgia and Washington DC area, so that shortly after they pointed it out as one of the main objectives of the United States.
The DEA, ICE, the FBI, began looking for him, as explained in document 1: 14-cr-00051-2, based in a federal court of the District of Columbia, where he is accused of exporting hundreds of kilos of cocaine, resulting in the order of his apprehension.
Five years later, the search for Mencho continues to occur, although to date he has been very elusive, because there is no recent image that can specify what it looks like, and if not for a photo of him that circulated in 1994, there would be little.
The files that exist in the different courts of the United States are “classified,” and no one can access them because it is an ongoing investigation.
“When it comes to investigations in progress, no information is revealed about the person, and we can only say that he is wanted like any other criminal,” said Barbara Carreño of the DEA.
However, it is undeniable that the United States held one of the most wanted men in that country, and that today it is one of the most powerful drug traffickers in Mexico, since its networks operate from the West Coast of the United States to the eastern coast.
According to the National Security Commission, Oseguera Cervantes has several brothers who at the time participated with him in activities related to drug trafficking such as Abraham and Martin, who at the time were also arrested in Northern California, where they were also sentenced
The United States currently offers a $ 10 million reward for information that helps capture him.
