Two American citizens, who had arrest warrants, were arrested in Mexicali, based on extradition treaties between Mexico and the United States and collaboration agreements between the General Direction of International Police Affairs and Interpol, the Attorney General’s Office and the State Prosecutor’s Office.
The State Attorney General’s Office (FGE), after receiving a support request by American authorities, implemented an operation, in order to locate and secure Charles Rouell and Michelle Nicole Rouell, who have an arrest warrant issued by a US judge, for possession of methamphetamine, with intent of distribution and assault with a firearm.
Information exchange between the Liaison Unit of the Baja California Prosecutor’s Office with the Liaison Office of the US MARSHAL, established that this couple of alleged criminals fled to Mexican territory to avoid being detained.
Through intelligence and surveillance tasks, police officers had located the objectives, approached them and then proceeded to secure them when they were walking on Gobernador Avenue and Hurdes Street in Hacienda del Castillo section in Mexicali, and later sent them to the facilities of the National Institute of Migration for the extradition procedures.
Through these kind of actions, the relationship of the State Attorney General’s Office with the United States authorities is strengthened, especially because it allows close coordination between police institutions of both countries to arrest people who commit crimes on both sides of the border.
