CHIHUAHUA, Mexico, Nov. 18 (UPI) -- Police in Mexico's Chihuahua state said two sons of leaders in drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman's Sinaloa Cartel have been arrested.

The arrests were carried out in separate operations this week, the Attorney General of the State of Chihuahua said in statements.


Jesús "El Tony Juniors" Antonio was arrested along with Davis "El Padre" on Tuesday. Both face charges of crimes against public health and illegal possession of firearms.

Authorities said Antonio is the son of "Tony Trocas," who is "one of the largest drug dealers in several municipalities and responsible for several homicides for the Sinaloa cartel." Davis is accused of working as a henchman for "Tony Trocas." The men were arrested while carrying 118 small bags of cocaine and a 9 mm pistol.

The Attorney General of the State of Chihuahua on Wednesday said Mauricio "El Mauri," the son of Mauricio "El Papacho" Luna Aguilar, was arrested on Tuesday. The father is accused of committing multiple homicides.

A woman, identified as Genoveva C., was arrested along with Mauricio. Police seized a grenade and a bag of marijuana. Those arrested were handed over to judicial authorities.
