Two Mexican nationals extradited to face charges in U.S courts

Mexico City, Mexico — Two people of Mexican nationality accused of various crimes have been extradited to the U.S.

Omar “P” was wanted by the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Georgia on charges of drug and criminal association. According to the FGR of Mexico (Fiscalía General de la República), he was a member of a criminal organization that trafficked heroin and methamphetamine in 2015.

He was in charge of coordinating the importation and storage of drugs to the United States and distributing them in Atlanta, Georgia. He was located and detained for extradition purposes in November 2021, in Zapopan, Jalisco.

Luis “M”, who was wanted by the Federal District Court for the Southern District of California, was also extradited Tuesday. Luis “M” was transferred to U.S. federal custody for criminal association, trafficking of undocumented immigrants and operations with resources of illicit origin.

According to the FGR, he trafficked people from Mexico across the border, specifically from Tecate, Baja California, to the United States. His arrest occurred in April of this year in Tijuana, Baja California.

Both men were transferred to the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) where they were handed over to U.S. agents designated for their final transfer.
