Edgar Veytia, attorney general for the western Mexican state of Nayarit, was taken into custody Monday on an arrest warrant issued by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of NY, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Veytia is named in at least two federal court documents, including one in NY, where he was indicted on three counts of conspiracy to sell, import or export, and distribute narcotics, and another in California, where he was arraigned this week.
In the indictment, New York's Eastern District charges Veytia with conspiring to smuggle heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine into the United States between the years of 2013 and 2017.
Veytia was believed to have been detained on the bridge between San Diego and the Tijuana airport, local media reported.
The arrest is another blow for Mexico President Enrique Pena Nieto's Institutional Revolutionary Party, which governs Nayarit and is reeling from corruption scandals that have led a number of former governors to flee criminal charges.
