Vincente Zambada Niebla

Jesus Vicente Zambada Niebla
, a.k.a: El Vicentillo, is a drug trafficker of the Mexican organised criminal group The Sinaloa Cartel. He was arrested in Mexico City on 19 March 2009 and extradited to the United States in February 2010 to stand trial on narco-trafficking-related charges.


Zambada is charged with trafficking more than a billion dollars in cocaine and heroin. However, Zambada claims that he is covered by an immunity deal between Mexico and the U.S., and that, because Sinaloa Cartel leaders provided federal agents with information about rival drug gangs, he should go free.


Jesus Vicente Zambada Niebla is the son of Ismael Zambarda Garcia (alias, “El Mayo”), one of the top leaders of the Sinaloa drug-trafficking organization. He is also the brother of María Teresa Zambada Niebla and Midiam Patricia Zambada Niebla, who are also in the Sinaloa Cartel narco business.
