20:04 |


Edgar Vallejo-Guarin was arrested at one of the Spanish capital's leading luxury hotels after an operation involving the US Drug Enforcement Agency - DEA - and Spain's National Police and paramilitary Civil Guard. He is accused of heading one of Colombia's biggest and most violent cocaine cartels and alleged to have moved many millions of pounds worth of the drug into the US and to Britain and the rest of western Europe through Spain. Vallejo-Guarin, who will be 48 later this month, has been wanted by a US Federal Court in Florida since 2001 on multiple drug trafficking charges. There was a reward of five million dollars for his capture.
His arrest came after the DEA was alerted that he had been in Venezuela and then moved on to Spain. Later Spanish police discovered that he was living in the country with Venezuelan documentation under the name Jairo Gomez. He was using that identity when he was arrested at the Melia Fenix hotel on Madrid's principle Castellana boulevard less than a mile from the US embassy. America has said it would be seeking Vallejo-Guarin's extradition. Eduardo Aguirre, the US ambassador to Spain, described the drug baron's capture as "an excellent example" of international co-operation in the war against drug trafficking.
