EXCLUSIVE The cartel member suspected of shooting and killing Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in 2010 with a gun supplied by the U.S. government was arrested in Mexico Wednesday, senior law enforcement, Border Patrol, and congressional sources told Fox News.
The suspect, Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes, was apprehended by a joint U.S.-Mexico law enforcement task force that included the Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Marshals and the Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC).
A $250,000 reward had been sought for information leading to the arrest of Osorio-Arellanes, who was captured at a ranch on the border of the Mexican states of Sinaloa and Chihuahua. U.S. authorities have said they will seek his extradition.

Try Eric Holder as an accessory . . .
Why doesn’t Trump unseal all of that now?
*BUMP* (Bumping you back!)
In a just world, Eric Holder would be on trial, too!
RIP, Agent Terry. Justice is coming.
It wasn’t that hard to pick him up, Hussein had no interest.
RIP, Agent Terry. Justice is coming.
I couldn’t agree more!
Off the Wall Ping!
Contact to be added.
This guy has been on Obama’s untouchable list for 6 years and has been flipping off and dropping trow at law enforcement while laughing his ass off at authorites
Wonder if he will live long enought to turn states evidence before they wack him
OH bami, Hillary, Holder, McCain are you hearing the clicking of handcuffs??? You should, this guy lives long enough, he’s going to spill the beans...the Bushes might even be involved...who knows???
Only if Ivanka says it’s a go.
“Wonder if he will live long enought to turn states evidence before they wack him”
My first thought as well.
Then again, after 8 years of King Zero, it’s hard for me to get my hopes up that even if he turns states evidence, anything will be done with it.
If we can connect these two racist, seditionous pigs, Holder and Obuma, to the murder, were looking at the death penalty.
I agree. If I’d sold him the gun, would I be on trial?
FBI Criminal Informant Complicit in Brian Terrys Death (PJM Exclusive)
Previously, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terrys death in Peck Canyon, Arizona was described as a chance meeting that led to a firefight: an illegal alien rip crew working for the Sinaloa cartel was hoping to find other illegal aliens and to rob them at gunpoint. Instead, they stumbled across a Border Patrol unit and murdered Agent Terry.
Last week, the Washington Times offered a new version of the encounter: they reported that the rip crew was not hunting illegals, but Border Patrol teams with the intention of engaging them in combat.
Sources now tell PJ Media that neither version of events is accurate: the rip crew was not waiting for a chance encounter with other illegals, nor did the members intend to engage American law enforcement agents.
The rip crew was in Peck Canyon that evening with the intention of stealing money and drugs from a specific shipment of which they had prior knowledge.
The rip crew knew to be in Peck Canyon that December evening because a CI working for the FBI found out about a smuggling run from the FBI.
A source tells PJM that the FBI knew from wiretaps that the CI was using their information to set up an ambush. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) through its own CIs and communications intercepts was also aware of the planned assault. Neither the DEA nor FBI warned Border Patrol about the expected criminal activity.
Multiple sources tell PJM that this third weapon disappeared because it was the weapon carried by the FBI CI who ran the rip crew. When it was recovered near the scene of the murder and subsequently traced by the ATF, it traced back to the FBI CI via the gun shop in Texas where it was purchased.
Neither agency bothered to warn Border Patrol to keep their BORTAC teams out of Peck Canyon that evening. As a direct result of this FBI and DEA failure combined with Homeland Security forcing BORTAC units to carry less-lethal beanbag rounds in some of their primary weapons Brian Terrys under-armed four-man unit walked into an ambush against a heavily armed rip crew, at least five of whom were carrying rifles.
Brian Terrys murder was entirely preventable. The incompetence of the DEA and FBI let his Border Patrol unit walk into an ambush. After the ambush, it appears the FBI tampered with evidence to cover up that one of their informants was involved with the murder of a federal agent.
That’s awesome news!!!
