After receiving the request from American authorities to work together in order to arrest the man who, according to intelligence and information gathered by the US authorities, the man had fled and he was suspected to be hiding in Mexicali, he had the arrest warrant for methamphetamine trafficking.
ALEJANDRO “X”, a 24 year old man, hailing from Brawley, California has made methamphetamine smuggling and selling his job, crossed the border and escaped to Mexicali and according to American law enforcement agencies he was probably hiding in a house in “la Diana” (a section of Mexicali) between Fuente de Medusa and Fuente de Venus streets in Colonia Voluntad.
With that information at hand, the State Guard of Investigation and Security (GESI) of the FGE, moved on the area and finally detained ALJENDRO “X” and once the paperwork and other legal requirements are carried out, GESI agents delivered the man to the National Immigration Institute (INM) so he can be sent to the USA and tried for methamphetamine traffic.
