One of the most wanted narcos of the Cartel de Juárez captured
Mexico City - One of the drug traffickers most wanted by the United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) was captured by the Criminal Investigation Agency (AIC) of the PGR and Interpol.
He is Héctor Arenas Saucedo "El Gordo", a presumed member of the Juarez Cartel who was captured in the Colonia San Rafael of Mexico City on the basis of a provisional arrest warrant for extradition purposes drawn up in 2014 by the Tenth Court Of District in Federal Criminal Proceedings.
It should be noted that the court order was originally issued on July 28, 2011 by the Federal Court of the Western District of Texas, for the crimes of conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute cocaine.
"El Gordo" was transferred to the facilities of the delegation of the PGR in Mexico City, who carried a small weapon.
It is expected that the federal agency will determine whether he is incarcerated in the East Reclusorio or in a federal prison.
According to the Office of the Prosecutor, this subject was responsible for coordinating and monitoring the transportation of cocaine from a warehouses in the conurbation of El Paso, Texas, to Atlanta, Georgia and Charlotte, North Carolina.
This is one the first seemingly legit traffickers we have seen arrested belonging to the 'Juarez Cartel', in a while, usually it's the La Linea fallout, cell leaders, and enforcers. I remember Alberto Carillo Leyva, aka Ugly Betty, was arrested in Nayarit with 1 kilo. Vicente Carillo Leyva was arrested in D.F too.
