A fugitive gang leader who was wanted in 200 countries has been arrested after his model girlfriend posted her photo on social media.
Brian Donaciano Olguin Berdugo – better known as Pete, 39, was arrested at an apartment complex in Cali in the Colombian province of Valle del Cauca.
His arrest came after his model girlfriend, with whom he spent several nights together in a luxury apartment, shared his photo on her Facebook account.
The Mexican national is said to have arrived in Colombia to broker cocaine deals with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of the Colombian People’s Army (FARC) on behalf of the powerful Sinaloa Cartel.
According to a local media dealer, Bedrugo abandoned all security protocols while out with the unnamed model.
She even persuaded him to visit the crowded tourist spot Cerro de los Cristales where he was filmed in her company.
His fate was determined when US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents informed the Colombian Drug Enforcement Police of the suspect’s location.
In addition, he was captured by security cameras at Jose Maria Cordova International Airport with another attractive woman, according to reports.
Colombian intelligence officers then began pursuing Berdugo, and after nearly two weeks of surveillance, arrested him.
“We believe that this result was the most important in terms of the arrest of representatives of the Mexican cartel who come to commit drug-trafficking crimes with the FARC in Cauca,” said police spokesman General Jorge Vargas Valencia.
Mexican drug lord is under arrest warrant for extradition to the United States.
Lawyers are working to prevent his extradition while police alleged that $265,000 was offered as a bribe in exchange for his release.
Back in February a man confessed to Help the cartel solve countless bodies In acid from prison.
The cartel leader had already called “El Cano” was caught in a chicken shop After the fight, two people were killed.
