Chapo's Consuegro

The the father in law of one of the children of Chapo Guzmán has been arrested by the Federal Police in an operation covering several states. The consuegro, Víctor Manuel Félix Félix, was evidently caught in the company of half a ton of cocaine, $500,000, and eight other arrestees. A spokesman for the FP said that the group was part of a financial network with links to Ecuador.

Update: This piece of context was missing in the first story: Félix was arrested in Ecuador.

Update II: More context from Malcolm Beith.

Update III: Or perhaps not arrested in Ecuador (thank you Excélsior). And he may not have been Chapo's consuegro, but rather his concuño. As you might have guessed, the details about this were a bit sketchy. But someone with matrimonial links to Chapo was arrested, and his financial network had links to South America. That much we do know.
