“Sol Prendido” for Borderland Beat
Intelligence agents reported on Monday the arrest of Jennifer Nicole Burns, 40 years old and a U.S. national, who has an extradition order to the United States after being identified as a relevant target of the South Carolina Attorney General’s Office for maintaining links with the Jalisco New Generation Cartel in the trafficking of fentanyl to the United States.
Following a request for cooperation issued by the U.S. Marshals Service, agents located Jennifer Nicole, who has at least four charges for drug possession, methamphetamine trafficking and possession of a weapon during the commission or attempted commission of a violent crime.
She belongs to a group identified as “Las Señoritas,” linked to the CNG.
According to the indictments in this case, they have 170 charges against 43 defendants. Jennifer Nicole Burns, who fled to Mexico to remain a fugitive from authorities in her country, where she apparently received protection from members of the organization, was identified as one of the individuals involved in this investigation.
This criminal group was being investigated by several law enforcement agencies and sheriff’s offices in Pickens, Greenville, Laurens, Spartanburg, Anderson, Oconee and Abbeville counties, as well as the Easley, Travelers Rest and Clemson police departments.
Intelligence reports indicate that the woman was carrying a box containing six vials of fentanyl.
