The culprits are believed to be members of the Jalisco New Generation syndicate, who has been vying for Sinaloa’s broad Mexican influence since authorities began chipping away at the organization’s hierarchy.

Jalisco New Generation may be the thorn in the Guzman family’s side, responsible for the gang of men who recently burglarized the matriarch [El Chapo’s mother], although the organization has not claimed the incident.

News outlets initially reported that it had been El Chapo’s eldest son, Ivan, who was taken.

Ivan is not believed to have been in the restaurant during the incident.

El Chapo is being held across Mexican border in Ciudad Juarez, but has faced pressures that he be extradited to face charges in the U.S.

The younger Guzman, himself is wanted in the U.S. for his role in Sinaloa’s drug trafficking operation.
