Mexican authorities announced the arrest Saturday in the western city of Culiacan of a suspected arms distributor serving the Pacific cartel, Ramiro Rendon Rivera, alias “El Ramy.”
Rendon, 45, was arrested Friday by Federal Police for his suspected role in smuggling into the country firearms and ammunition for the Pacific cartel, the oldest drug cartel in Mexico.
The crime organization, also known as the Sinaloa cartel, is led by drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, Mexico’s most wanted outlaw.
The Public Safety Secretariat said in a communique that “El Ramy” was arrested following investigations that indicated him “as one of the principal distributors of firearms” for that cartel.
