On Monday Feb. 25, in the northern State of Baja California, as part of the “Security Crusade, everybody’s task” (Cruzada por la Seguridad, una tarea de todos), an American citizen who had an outstanding warrant for drug smuggling in El Centro, California, was arrested by the International Liaison Coordination of the Public Secretary of Security in Baja California, in Vilas del Rey, a suburban area of Mexicali where the State Police (PEP) and the National Institute of Immigration (INM) set up a check point, where Christopher “X”, 28 years old, was detained.
When his personal data was checked through the C4 Command and Control Center by PEP and INM agents and they found out that he couldn’t prove his legal stay in Mexico, and they also became aware of the fact that US Marshalls and the USA State Department had an outstanding arrest warrant for drug smuggling and dealing against the suspect.
The warrant was issued 4 months ago in El Centro, California for drug smuggling, but the suspect fled the country to Mexico thru Mexicali to avoid arrest.
The man had a previous detention last year for robbery, so he was stopped at the check point, and placed under custody, until American authorities determine his legal status and take the corresponding actions.
