After 12 years of being a fugitive, the former commander of the State Preventive Police of Chiapas, Ballardo Uriel "N" , was arrested for his alleged links with the Gulf Cartel.

The Attorney General's Office (FGR) announced the arrest of the former public servant as likely responsible for crimes against health and organized crime.

According to the case file, Ballardo Uriel used his position as commander in Frontera Comalapa to provide information and protection to the Gulf Cartel , as well as Los Zetas , the armed wing of that criminal organization. He is also accused of granting protection to drug dealers in that area of ​​the country, so the first District Judge in Chiapas ordered his capture, which was completed in the municipality of Ixtacomitán .

Uriel "N" was admitted to the State Center for Social Reintegration of Sentences number 3 in Tapachula and was wanted by federal authorities since May 2007.
