Mexican authorities have extradited Sandra Avila Beltran, a.k.a. the “Queen of the Pacific,” to the United States, where she is wanted on drug-trafficking and criminal conspiracy charges.
The suspect was handed over Thursday to personnel from the U.S. Marshals Service at the Toluca airport outside this capital after a two-year process in which she had used up all her appeals, the federal Attorney General’s Office said in a statement.
The AG’s office said Avila will be tried in a federal court in Miami on charges of participating – along with Juan Carlos Lopez Correa and Juan Diego Espinosa – in a group dedicated to trafficking cocaine and other drugs from Colombia to the United States.
