Psychics are so much a part of Sinaloa cartel operations that judges frequently allow authorities to wiretap their conversations with suspects. In this transcript of a DEA-intercepted call, drug trafficker Gabriel Dieblas Roman wants his psychic, Guadalupe “Lupita” Villalobos, to help him with spiritual advice but says he can’t afford to pay her. He offers to show her the police report of a recent bust. But the psychic (UF 390, for unidentified female) isn’t interested in his hard-luck story. She just wants to be paid. (Warning: The transcript includes Spanish-language profanity.)
