Mexicans wanted for drug trafficking extradited to face charges in Texas

Mexico City, Mexico — Two Mexicans wanted in Texas on drug-related offences have been extradited. Both Rufino “M” and Ricardo “B” were handed over to U.S. federal authorities for their return to the U.S.

In compliance with the Extradition Treaty signed between Mexico and the United States, the Attorney General’s Office (FGR) delivered two people of Mexican nationality to U.S. authorities.

On Sunday, Rufino “M”, who was required by the Eastern District of Texas, was returned to the U.S. to face drug trafficking charges. According to the FGR, from 2007 to 2012, Rufino “M” coordinated an organization which trafficked large quantities of cocaine and marijuana from Mexico to the United States.

Ricardo “B” was also extradited to face similar charges. According to the FGR, between 2009 and 2014 he coordinated the transportation of large quantities of marijuana to United States territory, for which he was required by the Southern District of Texas.

Subsequently, the FGR took the necessary steps for the Government of Mexico to grant the extradition of those claimed to the Government of the United States. The two individuals were handed over at the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) to the designated U.S. agents.
