Argentina Makes Colombia Drug Bust
Henry de Jesús López, 41 years old, was captured Tuesday near Buenos Aires in an operation that involved Argentina’s intelligence service working alongside the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and Colombia’s national police, officials said.
Mr. López’s stays in Venezuela and Argentina fit into a trend in which Colombian drug lords are setting up shop in neighboring countries to escape the pressure of Colombian security forces, which have a strong track record in fighting the country’s top drug cartels. Venezuelan police in September arrested Daniel Barrera, another alleged top Colombian drug trafficker who had been living in Venezuela for years.
Some Colombian cartels are now sending their cocaine shipments first to countries such as Argentina or Brazil before moving them to the U.S. or Europe, police say.
