DOJ Extradites Drug Chemical Supplier from Mexico for U.S. Trial

Attorney General Garland announces the trial of a supplier for a cartel trafficking operation.

The Department of Justice announced the extradition of Mexican citizen Francisco Pulido Coracero to the United States to face trial for allegedly supplying precursor chemicals to illegal drug manufacturers for the Jalisco Cartel. Coracero will face a grand jury in Washington, D.C., to face charges of conspiracy, one for the manufacturing of more than 500 grams of methamphetamine and the other for distributing listed chemicals for the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

“Precursor chemicals are the lifeblood of the Jalisco Cartel’s deadly drug trafficking operation,” said Attorney General Merrick Garland. “Today’s extradition of one of the cartel’s alleged chemical suppliers, Francisco Pulido Coracero, demonstrates the long and relentless reach of the Justice Department. We are grateful to the government of Mexico for their partnership in this extradition.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Attorney General Garland to be led by the Lord as he heads the Justice Department.
  • That DOJ officials will serve in their roles with integrity and uphold the laws of the land.
