Mexican Drug War Violent Crime

Suspected Killer of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry Arrested in Mexico

Authorities have arrested the cartel member suspected of shooting and killing Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in 2010. The
death exposed a gun-tracking operation by the federal government that went astray.

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.

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.

Osorio-Arellanes was captured at a ranch on the border of the Mexican states of Sinaloa and Chihuahua.

Agent Terry was killed on Dec. 14, 2010 in a gunfight between Border Patrol agents and drug cartel gunmen.
