On September 2, the Colombian Police announced it broke up a heroin ring that shipped the drug to the United States working with Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel.

Army General Luis Perez said the ring was sending 40 kilograms of heroin a month to the United States through Curaçao, the Dominican Republic and Aruba. Traffickers were also shipping drugs to the Netherlands.

Nine suspects were arrested. Among them was Juan David Toro Serna, who is wanted for extradition to the United States on drug charges.
