went to trial and was found guilty.
Garcia is a documented member of the Nortenos gang with a history of
convictions to include firearm possession, robbery, domestic violence,
drug possession, burglary, and assault.
“Aaron Garcia’s arrest is an excellent example of how we continue to
benefit from an extraordinary relationship with Mexican authorities, as
well as our fellow law enforcement agencies,” said John F. Clark,
Director of the U.S. Marshals Service. “Garcia has an extensive history
of violence and the time has come for him to answer for his crimes.”
In addition to the Colima State Police, U.S./Mexican Immigration and
U.S. Customs and Border Protection were key participants in Garcia’s
arrest. Garcia was flown from Mexico back to the United States early
