Pair extradited to Georgia to face drug, criminal association and money laundering charges

Mexico City, Mexico — Two Mexican nationals have been extradited to the United States on outstanding arrest warrants. In compliance with the Extradition Treaty signed between Mexico and the United States, the Attorney General’s Office of the Republic (FGR) has extradited two people wanted on charges of drugs, criminal association and money laundering.

Benjamin “I” was wanted by the Federal District Court of Georgia on all three charges. He has been attributed to being part of a criminal organization where he was the administrator in Mexico for the distribution of methamphetamine in the southeastern United States.

Verónica “A”, who was also wanted by the same Georgia court, was extradited to the U.S. on the same charges after being accused of supporting Benjamin “I” by being his Spanish to English interpreter to finalize the sale of drugs.

The Government of Mexico handed them over to the designated U.S. agents at the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) for their transfer to the U.S.
