Francisco Cindino is a South American drug lord who serves as a major antagonist in the movie Con Air, being the employer of Cyrus Grissom. He was portrayed by Jesse Borrego.
Cindino was incarnated in a Carson City maximum-security prison for drug trafficking and other offenses including murder. He would later be transferred to a new Supermax prison built in Alabama with other inmates, one of which is his co-conspirator, Cyrus Grissom, who is transferring with other violent inmates from San Quentin in California.
As the first batch of prisoners board the Jailbird, U.S. Marshal Vince Larkin and DEA agent Duncan Malloy decided to plant fellow DEA agent named Willie Sims on the plane as means to extract as much information from the drug lord. Sims boards the plane undercover as an inmate but was killed by Cyrus when he attempts the retake the plane. Cindino arrives with several other criminals including Garland Greene before the villains are discovered as cons.
At Lerner airfield later on, Cindino conspires to betray his minion by taking off on his own. Marshall Vince Larkin manages to stop his plane from leaving the airfield before it leaves the ground. Grissom discovered something was amiss then heads to the crash site. Cindino tries to explain he didn't want to leave Cyrus but Grissom knew better and taking Swamp Thing's cigarette, burns the drug lord to death over gasoline.
- He is based on real-life drug barons, the most notable being Colombian drug kingpin and narco-terrorist Pablo Escobar.
