Mexico captures ‘El Nini,’ Sinaloa Cartel’s alleged security boss

The Mexican National Guard on Wednesday captured Nestor Isidro Perez Salas, or “El Nini,” who is accused of heading security for the faction of the Sinaloa Cartel headed by the sons of founder Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

Perez Salas was detained in Culiacan, the Sinaloa Cartel’s heartlands, and was taken to Mexico City, according to government detention records.

He is accused by the U.S. State Department of working under Ivan Archivaldo Guzman to lead the “Ninis,” a violent group of security personnel for the Guzman brothers, also known as “Los Chapitos.”

In January, Mexican authorities captured Ovidio Guzman in Sinaloa and extradited him to the United States in September. The three other Guzman brothers who suspected of being leaders of Los Chapitos – including the figurehead, Ivan – remain free.
