Vicente Carrillo Fuentes is allegedly the leader of a large and violent drug trafficking organization known as the "Vicente Carrillo Fuentes Organization." This group is allegedly responsible for the importation of numerous tons of cocaine and marijuana from Mexico into the United States over the Ciudad Juarez/El Paso border annually.
On August 16, 2000, a federal grand jury from the Western District of Texas returned a 46-count indictment against Fuentes charging him with continuing criminal enterprise, importation and possession with intent to distribute cocaine and marijuana, and conspiracy to import and possess with intent to distribute cocaine and marijuana. The indictment also charges Fuentes with money laundering, tampering with a witness, nine counts of ordering the intentional killing of individuals to prevent communication of information to United States law enforcement officers, as well as ten counts of murder in furtherance of a continuing criminal enterprise.
The United States Department of State, Bureau for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, under its Narcotics Rewards Program, is offering a reward of up to $5 million for information leading directly to the arrest and/or conviction of Vicente Carrillo Fuentes.
