2 US Criminals Hide Out for 19 Years in Pescadero, BCS

Translated by Yaqui for Borderland Beat from: El Mundo Digital


La Paz, BCS:  The couple of US citizen / criminals detained by the Attorney General's Office in the town of Pescadero lived 19 years in hiding in Baja California, while the FBI was looking for them in their native North Carolina for money laundering and commercial selling of marijuana.

The elements of the attorney general's office, together with the staff of the National Institute of Migration, have arrested two Americans in Baja California Sur who have been searched for by the FBI for 19 years.

The two inmates are Robert Edward Freer , 61 years old and Wendy Galbraith or Wendy Galbraith Col Freer, 52 years old who are husband and wife and have been prosecuted in the East District of North Carolina November 8, 1999 for conspiracy to distribute marijuana and money laundering, but they quickly escaped from the area when they learned of the existence of federal charges.

In mid-July this year, Commissioners Dan Tubman and Bryan Koning of the DEA  found information indicating that the couple lived on the peninsula of Baja California Sur in Mexico with different names.


So they contacted the general power of attorney in Mexico City to start working with the authorities and confirm information and develop a detention plan.

On 4 October, the Mexican authorities captured the Freers "in a tourist complex they owned and operated in San Pedrito beach".

The Deputy Prosecutor General of Regional Control, Criminal Procedures and Amparo ( SCRPPA ) and the PGR reported that after their arrests carried out by the federal ministerial police on Federal Highway #19, near the city El Pescadero, ( just south of Todos Santos ) the couple was transferred to the National Migration Institute, to resolve their immigration status.

The couple was deported from Mexico and flown to Los Angeles, where the return processes  will begin to North Carolina.

"Freer are living examples of those who thought they could circumvent the system." The men and women of the Marshals Service showed them that they were wrong and reaffirmed the principles of our criminal justice system by bringing these fugitives to justice. We hope to bring this case to court here in the eastern district of North Carolina " he said Robert J. Higdon, Jr., Federal Prosecutor for the Eastern District of North Carolina

The agency announced this: elements of the Attorney General's Office (PGR), assigned to the State Delegation in Baja California Sur, in coordination with personnel of the National Institute of Migration (INM), said the two persons sought by authorities of the States United of America had been taken into custody.

Both persons were wanted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), for their probable responsibility in the crimes of drug distribution and money laundering.

    1. 9:00 yes sire bob, if Griffa is legal now, it is like it never was a crime before, please release these exemplary US citizens and let them contribute to their own support in Mexico instead of being supported by 100 thousand taxpayer dollars a year on a US prison, that is a business of prison wardens and associates of course...

    8. 9:18 Im pretty sure I understand correctly and I understand this site is dedicated to reporting on the drug war . I think it shouldn't matter if its a Brooklyn doctor keeping a bunch of addicts supplied . Money laundering ? It don't matter if you are manufacturing and selling widgets , if you are hiding income and diverting huge profits its a federal crime . But they are alleging it came from drug proceeds .

    1. Mr 129, they are not embarrassed, they kept busy arresting other fugitives, they are great full, to close the case on this one.

  6. Thanks Ya’ll for your support.
    I’m sorry that 9:18 finds something offensive about it.
    There happens to be ALOT of money laundering in that area, and it is not done all by Mexicans......I happen to know there is a lot of US dope money laundered there. And for all we know , the fugitive couple could very well have been keeping up their sceaming. Their ultimate price is gonna be a lot worse now than it would have been 19 years ago. If they had federal charges that long ago they were not selling joints on a corner. Also, folks living and working in MX for this long have to have had some experience w Narcos or corrupt police etc, it is just unavoidable.

  10. There are many Americans who have committed violent crimes in the USA as well as sex crimes, who hide out in Mexico. Also tax evaders and those fleeing child support obligations. Lot of these Americans in Puerto Penasco, Sonora.

  12. While these two get nabbed, the American military is in Afghanistan guarding the poppy fields for the CIA and stealing lithium for Tesla batteries. Where is the justice?

    1. What's your point? American military has no business on Mecico, it's two different governments, one is super dupper corrupt.

    2. The point (for the fucking idiot commenter above) is that weed growers should be the least of anyone's worries. They're not murderers or thieves. But you are 100 percent a fucking moron I'll tell you that faggot.

  13. Thanks 4 the read Big Yak, this story reminds me of an old American couple on the run in TJ not too long ago. They were from a midwestern state and were hiding out in Mexico unbeknownst to anybody around them. They had fake names and people around them in BCS said they were nice quiet business owners. Turns out they were on the FBI's most wanted list. The husband was a hells angel member wanted for a spree of murders carried out throughout several states. When the U.S Marshall's tried to detain them the wife shot herself committing suicide and the husband was ultimately aprehended at a burger spot close to rosarito.

    1. Oh wow, that is quite a story.
      Honest to gawd : I met a guy YEARS ago who was a train conductor who was at fault for derailing a train and killing and injuring MANY people. He was actually bragging about how easy it was to hide in plain sight to me , a perfect stranger. I have always hoped that dumb fk got caught and wished I had done something myself about it. However, you know how many crazies are out there, it seemed so outlandish I thought maybe he was just another nutball.
      I am dating myself here but I have to say that was really so many years ago you could hardly make a phone call out of the country of Mexico or many paved roads for that matter.

    2. @Yaqui That's not cool man. When confronted with any situation involving killings of innocent people, you should have called the police. You have to have a conscience and think of the families of those dead people who still don't have closure. You live and you learn, but that's not cool at all.
