Mexican woman wanted in state of Texas extradited

Mexico City, Mexico — A Mexican woman wanted in the state of Texas has been extradited from Mexico. On Saturday, Beatriz “S” was handed over to U.S. federal agents for an escorted return to face a variety of charges.

In compliance with the Extradition Treaty signed between Mexico and the United States, the Attorney General’s Office (FGR) extradited a woman of Mexican nationality required by the Southern District of Texas for the crimes of criminal association and money laundering, the FGR reported.

According to the FGR report, “between the years 2011 to 2013, Beatriz “S” was a member of a drug trafficking organization. Her role was to launder the profits from the sale of drugs, making it appear that the money was the product of the export of merchandise to Mexico.”

She was located and detained in October 2023 in Guadalajara, Jalisco and held for extradition purposes.

Subsequently, the Government of Mexico granted the extradition of the requested person to the Government of the United States. Beatriz “S” was delivered to U.S. agents at the Mexico City International Airport.
