*****UPDATE: Giovanni Ruanova only fugitive still at large in this case********************
Israel "Chapo" Corral, Giovanni Ruanova, and Annette Sanchez are wanted for their respective roles in an alleged drug gang in the Detroit area in the 2000's. I decided to just post the archive description for Corral since I think it best sums up what has been alleged by authorities.
Underground Conspiracy In Detroit
Authorities say Israel Corral and the members of the Lewis Drug Organization have cashed in on a conspiracy to fill the streets of Detroit with drugs and death.
Federal indictments say Corral and his organization have been operating in Detroit since March of 2004. They say one of the drug dealers' girlfriends showed authorities $3.6 million dollars, two guns, and a note with an address hidden in her hotel room in Novi, Michigan. The note led investigators to a home where they found another $1.4 million and two suspects... all connected to Corral and his alleged drug business.
Agents Say No One Is Safe
Authorities spent two years surveilling the Lewis organization and cracking down on its members one by one. The DEA, US Marshals, and the IRS all got involved to shut down the crime spree running rampant in their district.
Corral's involvement in the conspiracy surfaced when police repeatedly saw him interacting with high profile drug dealers in the Detroit area. They claim he helped traffic drugs in and out of the city using semi trucks filled with as much as 2,000 pounds of marijuana. The hauls were worth millions of dollars.
According to the DEA, Corral and his accomplices have caused a spike in crime in Detroit because of their rivalries with other drug gangs. They say the competition on the street has become fierce and the Lewis organization wasn't letting anyone step on their territory. Cops believe their group was responsible for almost one-third of the murders in the city, including a number of innocent victims.
Hunt Still On
So far, authorities have indicted more than 30 people through some tough detective work. Unfortunately, Corral and a few of his buddies have gotten past their radar....except for one unlucky fellow in December 2006.
America's Most Wanted aired a profile of Corral's buddy, Lamont Paris, and in just a couple of weeks he was caught. An AMW tipster gave police a license plate number that led them straight to his hiding place.
The DEA hopes this new arrest will bring them closer to catching Corral and the rest of the fugitives remaining from the indictment.
Thoughts? First a bit about Giovanni Ruanova and Annette Sanchez. It's alleged they were boyfriend and girlfriend and involved in an attempted 2 million dollar sale with a Mexican drug cartel. More info on all three fugitives can be found in the AMW archive and DEA links below.
Detroit has had to deal with a ridiculous amount of crime, and there are innocent victims here who were allegedly casualties of these three fugitives.
