Mexico, D.F. - On Thursday, the Mexican Attorney General's Office reported that a federal judge approved the extradition of Carlos Montemayor González, 38, or Alejandro García Treviño, aka, "El Charro" to the U.S. The U.S. government is working out the extradition process with the Mexican government. González will be turned over to the U.S. authorities as soon as the Mexican officials transfer custody.
González is the father in-law of Edgar Valdéz Villareal, aka, "La Barbie." González was wanted in Mexico for murder, drug trafficking, smuggling and distribution against the public health. He took over the Barbie criminal organization and drug cartel after Villareal was taken into custody on August 30.
González originally from Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas was using the name Treviño to pass himself as a businessman and promoter of events for Charros en Huixquilucan in the state of Mexico. Intelligence provide to the Secretary for Public Safety (SSP) by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) led to González arrest in November. González is wanted in the U.S. for cocaine trafficking.
González had confessed to transporting more than a ton of cocaine into the U.S. between 2003 and 2005 with the help of the Beltrán Leyva Cartel. He met La Barbie at the same time and La Barbie later married one of González daughters five years ago. Before La Barbie was captured he told González to take over the organization to secure La Barbie's wife financial future and to collect drug shipment debts owed to him.
