The feds in Miami are taking aim at some big guys in the drug world.

Authorities filed charges against  Daniel Barrera-Barrera, an international drug smuggler with alleged ties to terrorist groups in Columbia, reports the Miami Herald.

The report calls Barrera-Barrera, 42, one of Columbia’s most-wanted, and says he “maintains a partnership with the U.S.-designated terrorist group known as the FARC,” a leftist guerrilla group.

Barrera-Barrera, also know as “Loco Barrara,” remains at large. He was charged in Miami along with two brothers, Javier Fernandez-Barrero, 43, and Orlando Fernandez-Barrero, 45, also known as “Los Gorditos.” The brothers are in custody.

The family’s “criminal enterprise is responsible for distributing tons of cocaine into the U.S and other countries,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge John Gillies, according to the Herald.
