FBI Hunting for Mexican Drug Cartel's Money Network Man

Posted:

Chicago FBI agents are hunting for Eduardo Trevino, who they said oversaw a money transportation network for the Los Zetas Mexican drug cartel, which had a cell based in Chicago.

The Zetas were involved in transporting millions of dollars of cocaine and heroin from Mexico, through Laredo, Tex., and on to Chicago.

Trevino's role in the scheme came after the narcotics were sold. He coordinated the collection of the money that was generated as a result of the sale of the narcotics and then arranged to have the money driven in trucks to Texas and then on to the bosses back in Mexico.

Early in November, the FBI and DEA rounded up a dozen members of this drug ring after they were indicted by a grand jury. Trevino was one of five members of the money transportation cell who were indicted and targeted for arrest when FBI and DEA agents went to round them up early last month, but they didn't catch him.

While Trevino and several other defendants in this case remain fugitives, agents did seize a lot of drugs and money in this investigation. During the sweep last month, agents seized $480,000 in cash, as well as two kilograms of heroin. Over the course of this investigation, which started in 2010, agents have confiscated more than $12 million cash and 250 kilos of cocaine.

Trevino is known to have occasionally traveled to the Chicago area as well as other parts of the United States. He is a Mexican national, so it's also possible he is in Mexico.

Here is what the FBI says Trevino is:

  • Hispanic.
  • Age 49.
  • 5'6", 160 pounds.
  • Brown eyes with black, greying hair.

He also goes by the name of Aldo Trevino. He is considered armed and dangerous. If you see him, call police.
