Reports surfaced noting that Sinaloa Cartel member Brian Verdugo, wanted in 196 countries, was arrested after his model girlfriend posted a photo of them together on Facebook.
Colombian police arrested the all-eged Sinaloa cartel member in a luxury apartment located in the city of Cali. Colombian authorities were alerted by the DEA that Verdugo entered the country in February 2022. A Facebook post from the model found the couple at Los Cristales, a hilltop statue of Jesus. Verdugo was reportedly in the country to broker c**aine deals wit the Revolutionary A*med Forces of Colombia on behalf of the cartel. After finishing his deals, Berdugo traveled to Cali and met with the model.
The all-eged Sinaloa cartel member was all-egedly looking to establish a permanent residence in Colombia and serve as a cartel liaison between Mexico and Colombia. Upon being arrested, Verdugo tried to br-ibe the police with $265,000 according to officials. The man told arresting officers “If I was in Mexico, I would have already been freed by a group of armed men.” Verdugo will be extradited to California for prosecution on c**aine trafficking charges.
