Alleged money launderer for Sinaloa Cartel extradited to Texas

Maricio Sanchez Garza, an alleged financial operative for the Sinaloa Cartel, who is accused of money laundering through a San Antonio real estate investment, as well as extorting his partner in a movie deal, has been extradited to Texas to stand trial.
The U.S. Treasury Department has accused him of laundering money for Rafael Caro Quintero, one of the original cartel bosses, who was convicted of killing Drug Enforcement Agent Enrique Camareno and Juan Jose “El Azul” Exparragoza, a top leader of the Sinaloa Cartel under Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.
In San Antonio, Sanchez Garza is charged with money laundering, conspiracy and extortion. Federal officials last year seized a pair of lots that one of his companies intended to develop into apartments. In 2014, a judge ruled that the feds could take possession of a house and an empty lot in the exclusive Dominion area linked to Sanchez Garza.
