Mexican woman extradited to Texas on drug trafficking charges

Mexico City, Mexico — A Mexican woman wanted in the state of Texas for transporting cocaine and methamphetamine has been extradited from Mexico. On Thursday, Karla “V” was handed over to U.S. federal marshals at the Mexico City International Airport.

Her extradition to the U.S. was made in compliance with the Extradition Treaty signed between Mexico and the United States. Officers from the Attorney General’s Office of the Republic (FGR) delivered her to American authorities who have since transferred her to Texas.

According to the FGR, Karla “V” was wanted by the Western District of Texas for drug related crimes. According to the FGR, from 2002 to 2019, Karla “B” trafficked large quantities of cocaine and methamphetamine from Mexico to the United States out of Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua.

Karla “V” was located in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, and detained for extradition purposes. She was handed over Thursday to face charges in a Texas court.
