Mexican police detained a man accused of fatally shooting a U.S. Border Patrol agent almost two years ago in Arizona in a botched U.S. operation to track guns smuggled across the border, the government said Friday.
Federal police detained Jesus Leonel Sanchez Meza on Thursday in Sonora state, which borders Arizona, where agent Brian Terry was shot dead in December 2010, the Public Security Ministry said. The Mexican Attorney General's Office plans to extradite Sanchez Meza to the United States, the ministry said in a statement.
Two guns found at the scene were traced to a botched U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) sting operation called "Fast and Furious" that allowed weapons to slip across the border. It was not clear, however, if those weapons fired the fatal shots.
Four others have been accused in the shooting, the ministry said. Officials did not say if they were also being detained.

Gunwalker / Murdergate ping.
Another “workplace violence” incident? Like Ft Hood? Give DHS a few minutes to proclaim it so, and it’ll get buried in the forgotten news.
"Your in touble now-owwww"
Legal entry into the US .. a dream come true for Jesus.
“Legal entry into the US .. a dream come true for Jesus.”
And 20-30 million more “criminal illegal alien nightmares” for us to deal with.
One of the most criminal escapades of the current administration.
It hasn’t been satisfactorily resolved for most Americans.
Upcoming election...60 days out...eight weeks or so...
0bama needs a target for deflection...
Welcome to the US, Jesus Leonel Sanchez Meza...
And from an article on cbs;
“In Operation Fast and Furious and at least three earlier probes during the administration of President George W. Bush, agents in Arizona employed a risky tactic called gun-walking allowing low-level “straw” buyers in gun-trafficking networks to leave with loads of weapons purchased at gun shops. The goal was to track the guns to major weapons traffickers and drug cartels in order to bring cases against kingpins who had long eluded prosecution under the prevailing strategy of arresting low-level purchasers of guns who were suspected of buying them for others.
During Operation Fast and Furious, many of the weapons weren’t tracked and wound up at crime scenes in Mexico and the U.S., including the Terry shooting.”
Bush did it three times. He’s three times worse than obama! /s
No, go ahead and convict him. Holder will just let him roam free, to rape and murder. He'll become a frito-bandito hero to the criminal invasion force.
Even the Mexican government thinks Romenys is going to win. They sure wouldn’t have bothered to catch him for Obama.
First they denied God, then they arrested Jesus. Someone warn the Holy Spirit, the rats are going for the Trinity...
Another day, another drip.
Thanks for the ping.
Will probably meet with a serious accident soon after arriving in the US.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
what gets me is they had to be forced to do and we dont know if these guys are scapegoats or what.
