U.S. Seeks Extradition Of Pacific Drug Cartel Queen Avila Beltrán

May 1, 2010

Mexico (HNNUSA) - Last Thursday, the U.S. District Court of Southern Florida filed for the second time an extradition order for Sandra Avila Betrán, aka "Pacific Queen." Avila Beltrán was indicted in the U.S. for allege charges of organized crime and importing large quantities of cocaine to the U.S. for distribution.
She was arrested in Mexico City in 2007, and is wanted in the U.S. for importing at least 9.6 tons of cocaine in 2001.
Avila Betrán is considered ruthless for her tactics used against rival drug cartel members. She is the niece of Miguel Angel Félix Gallardo, who is now serving a 40 year sentence in the U.S. for the homicide of a U.S. DEA agent in 1984.
Last January, her great uncle Juan José Quintero Payán was extradited to the U.S. for drug trafficing, according to a federal indictment.
