Federal prosecutors in San Diego, CA have indicted Alvaro Lopez Nuñez with smuggling drugs for the Sinaloa cartel following his arrest last week at a border entry in Nogales, AZ as reported by the Los Angeles Times. Narco degeneracy apparently runs in the family. Earlier this year Alvaro's nephew Damaso Lopez Serrano -- reported godson of cartel boss Joaquin Guzman -- and brother Damaso Lopez Nuñez -- a Guzman lieutenant -- were busted to face U.S. charges. Joaquin Guzman, known as "El Chapo" or "the Midget," was extradited last January from Mexico to face trafficking charges in Brooklyn, NY, and his trial is tentatively scheduled for April 2018.
