A total of U.S. $ 90,000, presumably generated by drug sales in the East Los Ágeles, California, was seized on Saturday in this city from a man identified as Cardenas Sosa Othniel.
The State Secretariat of Public Security (SSPE) reported that in an operation implemented in Colonia Francisco Villa in the south of the border, agents of the State Preventive Police (PEP) arrested Sosa Cardenas with so much cash.
In a statement, the state agency reported that Sosa Cardenas, 47, was arrested while driving a vehicle in which, after a rigorous inspection, agents found the $ 90,000 in bills of various denominations.
Cardenas Sosa said the money was proceeds of drug sales in Los Angeles, California and belonged to the Arellano Felix brothers, specifically, he said, it belongs to Fernando Sanchez Arellano, who was known as “The Engineer”.
When cornered, who is also known by the alias of “Oto” told officers, “if you let me go I’ll give you the amount of $ 50,000”, an offer that was rejected by the agents.
Othniel Sosa Cardenas, alias “El Oto”, was arrested and brought before the Public Ministry of Federal Jurisdiction.
