Two Mexican nationals wanted in the U.S. on various charges extradited

Mexico City, Mexico — Two Mexican nationals wanted in the U.S. for various drug, firearm and sex-related charges have been extradited. On Friday, Raúl “D” and Enrique “G” were handed over to U.S. federal agents for transfer back to the U.S. to face separate charges.

Raúl “D” was returned to Los Angeles where he was wanted by a California court for kidnapping and sexual abuse. The State Attorney of the Republic (FGR) of Mexico says in April 2009, Raúl “D” kidnapped a minor from inside an apartment complex and subsequently took her to a hidden location where she was sexually abused.

Enrique “G” was extradited for charges that include criminal association, drug offences and possession of a firearm. He was wanted by the Federal Court for the Western District of Tennessee for crimes that occurred in 2021.

The FGR says in September 2021, Enrique “G” pleaded guilty before the Federal Court for those crimes, however, in October of that same year, he was mistakenly released from the Shelby County, Tennessee prison and did not appear at the sentencing hearing.

After the efforts carried out by the FGR, the Government of Mexico granted the extradition to the Government of the United States.
