Four alleged members of a criminal network called “Los Infiltrados”, wanted with a view to extradition by the United States for trafficking cocaine were brought before the Office of the Attorney General. 

These people were arrested in a joint operation carried out by the Special Office against Drug Trafficking – Office of the Attorney General, the National Police, and the Immigration authorities in Colombia, with the support of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agency.

The people wanted with a view to extradition are: a Colombian immigration officer, Juan Carlos Muñoz López; two former officers of the same institution, John Fredy Quiroz Medina and Carlos Alberto Castaño Loaiza; and a private individual, Javier Alexander Forero Álvarez. The four men are accused of having links with the drug cartels in Mexico and trafficking cocaine from the international airport ElDorado through drug couriers. 

Additionally, they are accused of providing information to the international drug trafficking structures about the movements of diplomatic delegations of the United States entering or leaving Colombia; as well as offering bribes to immigration officers in the counters to obtain privileged data of foreigners and guarantee the shipment of drugs to Central America, Puerto Rico, and the United States. 

These people are wanted by The United States District Court for the District of New for conspiracy and drug trafficking offenses. 

The United States Embassy will be informed about these arrests through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to conduct the formal extradition request within the terms established in the legal system. 

The Office of the Attorney General makes this information public for reasons of general interest.
