Narco Queen of Honduras: Herlinda Bobadilla, 'La Chinda'

Herlinda Bobadilla, 'La Chinda,' along with her two sons ran one of Honduras' most powerful crime families. Along with Tito and Juan Carlos Montes Bobadilla, she controled the Montes drug cartel. Honduran police announced her capture Sunday. Tito was killed and three others captured.
Bobadilla and her sons were based in Colón, on the northeastern coast of Honduras. Her power grew with the conviction of Noe, her third son, who was extradited in 2019 and is now serving 37 years in a U.S. prison for drug-trafficking. The clan worked with the Valle cartel, and is said to have strong links to the recently caged former President Hernández. Hernandez was extradited on April 21, accused of conspiring to transport some 500 tons of cocaine from South America to the United States.
