Carlos Arturo Quintana, better known under the alias El 80, is responsible for, among other things, violent incidents in the northern province of Chihuahua, according to the Minister of the Interior Alfonso Navarrete through Twitter.
La Línea is the armed branch of the Juárez cartel. In Chihuahua, the Juárez cartel is fighting the Sinaloa cartel for power in drug trafficking.
