Drug smuggler wanted in Arizona and Nebraska extradited from Mexico

Mexico City, Mexico — A Mexican woman wanted in two U.S. states for drug smuggling has been extradited. In compliance with the Extradition Treaty signed between Mexico and the United States, Mexican authorities handed over Sandra “M” to U.S. federal officials Wednesday.

According to the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR), “between 2006 and 2010, Sandra “M” and her husband trafficked large quantities of marijuana from Mexico to Tucson, Arizona and Omaha, Nebraska.”

In August of this year, Sandra “M” was detained in Hermosillo, Sonora due to her outstanding arrest warrant with U.S. officials. She was held for extradition purposes and extradited to the U.S. Wednesday from the Mexico City International Airport.
