Mexican Drug Trafficker Arrested in Uruguay

MONTEVIDEO – A Mexican citizen arrested on drug charges in Uruguay last week received “hot money” from abroad and used a satellite telephone to run his business, officials said.

Gerardo Gonzalez Valencia, one of the leaders of the Los Cuinis drug cartel, faces money laundering charges in Uruguay and is being held in jail.

Gonzalez had assets worth more than $3 million in Uruguay that he accumulated from laundering money, judicial and Interior Ministry officials said.

The suspect was not engaged in any legal activities and did not have bank accounts in the country, the officials said.

Gonzalez, who was arrested along with four other people last Friday, owned nine vehicles and a house in the southeastern resort city of Punta del Este, among other assets.

The Mexican citizen is the subject of an extradition request filed by the United States, National Police director Mario Layera said.
