A Mexican law enforcement official was arrested at the worldwide border in San Diego this week on suspicion of taking part in drug trafficking, officials revealed Wednesday.
A Mexican state attorney has been arrested in San Diego, accused of conspiring to smuggle and traffic drugs.
The investigation into Veytia began in 2012 when he was a deputy Attorney General in Nayarit.
During that same, Veytia allegedly knew of and would attempt illegal importation of those drugs outside the U.S.as well.
If convicted, the US would seek at least $250 million from Veytia in property linked to drug manufacturing and distributing, according to the indictment. Edgar Veytia, 45, who has served as the top law enforcement officer of Nayarit since 2013, was charged in a seven-page, three-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury on Monday in the NY borough of Brooklyn and unsealed on Tuesday.
