Pair linked to drug rings jailed for six months

A worker in the organized crime prosecutor’s office has been remanded to jail for six months for investigation, the Poder Judicial reported. His associate, a Colombian, has the same fate.

Both were detained in raids Wednesday, and investigators alleged that they were part of an intelligence net for drug gangs. Investigators said that the judicial employee, identified by the last names of Valverde Fernández, provided detailed information to drug gangs about the investigations that were going on in his office. That formerly was called the narcotics trafficking prosecutor’s office.

The Colombian, identified by the last names of Vallego Molano is alleged to have assisted Valverde.

Agents said the network was run by a man in México and had members as far away as France and Colombia.
