Elements of the Federal Ministerial Police, of the Criminal Investigation Agency (AIC) - attached to the General Directorate of International Police Affairs, and, of the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol), delivered the drug dealer for US agents at the International Airport in Mexico City (AICM).

As reported by the Attorney General's Office (FGR), the authorities turned over Casarrubias Salgado to be tried by the Federal Court of the Northern District of Illinois, in Chicago, for the crimes of criminal association, against health and money laundering .

“The investigation carried out by the US authorities identified Adam 'C', as one of the leaders of a drug trafficking organization, which was responsible for introducing large amounts of Mexico heroin to the United States between 2012 and 2014 [to benefit the Sinaloa Cartel, and the Beltrán Leyva], ”the FGR explained.

"El Tomate" was arrested on October 29, 2015, in the municipality of Emiliano Zapata, Morelos, by elements of the Ministry of National Defense (Sedena), when he met with Erick Ulises Ramírez Crespo, then mayor of Cocula, Guerrero, who served in the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD).

Casarrubias Salgado was criminally processed and subject to preventive detention at the Federal Center for Social Readaptation (Cefereso) number 11, in Hermosillo, Sonora, once notified the US government requested his extradition.

In Mexico, the "El Tomate" was never criminally accused of the case, only for crimes against health and carrying firearms, derived from heroin and weapons that they seized him during his capture.

In 2018, the former Attorney General's Office (PGR) obtained a sentence of 12 years and 251 days as a punishment against “El Tomate”, for crimes against health and carrying firearms for exclusive use of the Army, Navy and Air Force.

In 2020, the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) refused to review and accelerate the process of the trial faced by “El Tomate”, who argued that his legal case remained stuck and that he was plagued with irregularities and serious violations of human rights.

Casarrubias Salgado, "El Tomate", is the brother of Mario Casarrubias Salgado, aka "El Sapo Guapo", deceased; of Sidronio "El Chino"; of José Ángel "El Mochomo" -often -, together with whom he founded the criminal group of the United Warriors.

For his part, the former municipal president was released on October 16, 2016, from a maximum security prison in Guanajuato -where he was held since February 9 of that same year -, given the lack of evidence against him for the crime of organized crime that was attributed to him.

The former PGR reported that the unitary court of the twenty -first circuit based in Chilpancingo, Guerrero, modified the formal prison order of the former mayor, issuing freedom under the reserves of law.
