El Chapo wanted the Hells Angels to kill ‘Catboy,’ a Canadian trafficker he suspected of stealing his money

Canadian drug trafficker Stephen Tello, known as “Catboy,” came within a whisker of being murdered on the orders of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who suspected the former real estate agent was stealing from him.

To do the hit, Guzman’s team singled out the Hells Angels.

That’s according to stunning court testimony this week from Hildebrando Alexander Cifuentes-Villa, or “Alex,” who took the stand against his old boss El Chapo and outlined extensive links between Guzman’s Sinaloa Cartel, Colombia’s Cifuentes-Villa crime family, and major Canadian cities.

Fielding questions from prosecutor Gina Parlovecchio in Brooklyn, Alex, who turned government witness for a shot at a reduced sentence, said he first started setting up El Chapo’s Canadian deals in 2008, as he “had a friend who was Colombian-Canadian and he had clients there.”

As well as Tello, official court transcripts obtained by the National Post show the narco outlining a longstanding relationship for cocaine, heroin and ice (or crystal meth) deals with a man called “Tony Suzuki,” believed to be Antonio Pietrantonio, a well-known Montreal mafia operative.
