DETROIT – Two alleged Colombian drug traffickers have been extradited to Detroit to face charges handed down by a federal grand jury, acting U.S. Attorney Terrence Berg announced Thursday.
Carlos Salguero-Bermudez and Ricardo Torres-Noack, both Colombian citizens, arrived in Detroit on Thursday to face charges they conspired to smuggle tons of ephedrine into the U.S. to manufacture methamphetamine in Michigan, Berg said in a news release. They also face drug possession and manufacturing and money laundering charges.
A federal grand jury in Detroit indicted the Colombians June 27 and the indictment was unsealed Thursday.
The two men were arrested by the Colombian National Police in Bogota, Colombia, in August and were held there pending the outcome of extradition requests made by the U.S. government in September, Berg said.
