Mexico Extradites One of the DEA's Most Wanted Fugitives to the US

"MX" for Borderland Beat

Raul Rene Rodriguez Romero

Mexico's Attorney General's Office (FGR) extradited Raúl René Rodríguez Romero, one of the most-wanted criminals of the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), to Denver, Colorado.

Rodriguez-Romero is wanted by the US District Court for the District of Colorado for conspiracy to distribute over 500 grams methamphetamine.

Between May and November 2015, this individual was tracked by the DEA as part of a drug investigation in Denver. The DEA has recordings of conversations in which Rodríguez-Romero agrees to carry out financial transactions to hide the origin of certain drug proceeds and of selling methamphetamines to confidential sources.

As reported by Borderland Beat, Rodriguez-Romero was arrested on October 2019 in Chihuahua, Chihuahua by federal security forces. He was imprisoned at the Reclusorio Norte penitentiary in Mexico City until he was transferred to the US.

    2. Eyes of law it doesn't matter anything over 500 grams you can he prosecuted to full extent of the law. That doesn't necessarily mean he will get same amount of time as a women or man selling a lot more but he can.

      Plus, just because someone is only selling whatever this guy was, doesn't mean he wouldn't have sold more if he could or that he isn't guilty of other more serious crimes that maybe cops can't get him for so they hit him w this to get him off the street.

    1. You’re an idiot. The highest level conspiracy drug charges all say “500 grams or more”... Clearly the terminology is out of date but it doesn’t mean they are being charged for just 500 grams (1 pound)...

      Idiots.

    1. People in Chihuas are among the largest in Mexico ... I’m the shortest of all my cousins at 5’10 with the tallest being 6’5” ... southern Mexicans are considered y’all at 5’5”

    3. Chihuahua has one of the largest populations of descendants from Europe compared to the rest of MX.

    4. 4:22 - I would say Nuevo León and Coahuila, given that this area was where the first Sephardic Jews arrived during the Inquisition. Most of the north was uninhabited back then. Chihuahua had some Rarámuri/Tarahumara people in the high lands.
