U.S. Actions Targeting Transnational Criminals for Illicit Fentanyl Activity – United States Department of State
Yonghao Wu works for a co-conspirator who owns Wuhan Shuokang Biological Technology Ltd., or “SK Biotech,” a People’s Republic of China based chemical company that also clandestinely sells fentanyl precursor chemicals to drug traffickers in Mexico. Yonghao Wu frequently ships fentanyl precursor chemicals to Mexico, including to Mazatlán, a Sinaloa Cartel-controlled city located in Sinaloa, in exchange for payments in cryptocurrency or via cross-border bank transfers. According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Sinaloa Cartel is largely responsible for the massive influx of fentanyl into the U.S. over the past several years.
On April 4, 2023, a federal grand jury sitting in the Southern District of New York returned an indictment against Yonghao Wu and others charging them with Fentanyl Importation Conspiracy, Fentanyl Trafficking Conspiracy, and Money Laundering Conspiracy.
The U.S. Department of State is offering a REWARD OF UP TO $1 MILLION for information leading to the arrest and/or conviction of Yonghao Wu.
