A suspected member of the violent Juarez Drug Cartel in Mexico has been extradited to the states, the DEA in El Paso said.

Felipe DOMINGUEZ-Vargas was extradited on Aug. 10 and made his initial appearance on drug charges in U.S. District Court in El Paso on Monday, according to Joseph M. Arabit, of the El Paso DEA. He waived his right to a detention hearing.

DOMINGUEZ faces six counts of conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute heroin, cocaine and marijuana, the DEA said. He was first arrested by Mexican authorities in November 2009.
