Alleged Mexican Drug ‘Queen’ Extradited to US

August 10th 2012   ·   19 Comments

A Mexican woman accused of being a high-ranking drug trafficker has been extradited to the United States to face drug charges.

U.S. authorities took custody of Sandra Avila in the city of Toluca Thursday, and transported her to Miami, where she will appear before a federal judge on cocaine trafficking charges.

Avila, known as “the Queen of the Pacific,” is accused of belonging to an organization that transported cocaine from Colombia to the United States during the 1990s. She was arrested in Mexico City in 2007, and was awaiting trial on organized crime and money laundering charges.

Some information for this report was provided by AP, AFP and Reuters.
