“Sol Prendido” for Borderland Beat

Christopher Armando Ramírez Cruz and Juan Salvador Cárdenas Terrazas were captured in October 2004 at a home in Tijuana.
A federal judge sentenced two members of the Arellano Felix brothers’ cartel, who were arrested 19 years ago, to 59 years and four months in prison.
They are Christopher Armando Ramírez Cruz, El Ángel, and Juan Salvador Cárdenas Terrazas, who were captured in October 2004, in a house in Tijuana, Baja California, by ministerial police of that state.
At the scene, firearms, magazines and marijuana were seized, in addition to the release of two people who had been kidnapped.
The Special Prosecutor’s Office for Organized Crime of the Attorney General’s Office charged them with the crimes of kidnapping, deprivation of personal liberty, stockpiling and possession of firearms and possession of magazines for the exclusive use of the Armed Forces.
In recent days, the Second District Court for Federal Criminal Proceedings in Toluca, State of Mexico, reopened the proceedings and issued the conviction. Both individuals are currently incarcerated in the Federal Center for Social Readaptation 18 CPS-Coahuila.
