Vicente Carrillo Leyva, alias "El Ingeniero," was a top leader of the Juarez Cartel. He was captured in 2009 by Mexican authorities.

Vicente Carrillo Leyva is the nephew of Vicente Carrillo Fuentes and the son of deceased drug lord Amado Carrillo Fuentes. He has worked closely with his uncle, Vicente, after his father died during plastic surgery. But his arrest in 2009 hurt his and his uncle's operations, especially as they've had to face down the challenge from the Sinaloa Cartel for Valley of Juarez trafficking corridor. Carrillo Leyva may, however, be released from jail soon, after several of the charges against him were dropped.
