On Wednesday, a drug dealer admitted to participating in an international conspiracy to traffic cocaine.
The US Senate and House have overwhelmingly declassified the origins of COVID-19.
According to a representative for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Southern District of California, Raul Flores-Hernandez, better known as El Tio, 70, ran a criminal gang with headquarters in Mexico’s Jalisco State that smuggled cocaine into the US from the 1980s through 2017.
The spokesman added that Flores-Hernandez used his ties in business to smuggle cocaine into the US by land from Mexico after shipping it from Mexico to ports in Bolivia, Colombia, and Peru.

The statement stated that the United States and Mexico collaborated to apprehend Flores-Hernandez and secure his extradition from Mexico. A July 2017 arrest led to his extradition in February 2021.
In response to one count of “conspiracy to distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine” into the US, Flores-Hernandez entered a guilty plea.
He will be sentenced on June 14 and might receive a life sentence if found guilty.
According to the spokesman, a federal district court judge would decide on any sentence after taking the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory considerations into account.
