BOGOTA, March 17. – The Colombian police announced today the capture of Samir Jose Renteria, alias Morfi, southwest of the country, said to be the first drug trafficker to use submersibles to transport cocaine, and who is wanted for extradition by the United States.

According to a statement from the National Police News Agency (ANNP), Renteria was arrested in Cali, capital of Valle del Cauca (southwest).

According to U.S. authorities, the arrested suspect has links with the Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and the criminal gang “Los Rastrojos.”

Renteria began in illicit drug business in the eighties, when he began shipping cocaine to the U.S. via speedboats which stopped at strategic points in the Colombian Pacific to collect fuel and keep running or to off-load the drug shipments. Besides being a navigation engine expert, Morphy became a partner of Naphtali Umensa, alias Mincho, the main leader of the FARC’s 30th Front, who was killed by Armed Forces on 20 October last year.

Ties with El Chapo As evidence of the U.S. authorities shows, Renteria also has contacts and illicit businesses with Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel, led by Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. The request for extradition, issued on December 2, 2010, is to appear before a Court for the Middle District of Florida for drug trafficking. It is estimated that Colombian traffickers began using submersibles from 1993, when authorities discovered a first submarine of its kind.
