Suspect in “Fast and Furious” death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry arrested in Mexico
No, it wasn’t Attorney General Eric Holder, though he faces judgement in his criminal contempt of Congress case several weeks from now for continuing to block Congress from 90,000 documents that might indicate precisely who in the Obama Administration was part of the gun-smuggling plot.
Ivan Soto-Barraza was arrested yesterday:
The third of five suspects wanted by the FBI has been arrested in Mexico, in connection with the killing of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, whose murder shined a light on the botched U.S. gun-smuggling probe known as Operation Fast and Furious.
Fox News confirmed that Ivan Soto-Barraza was captured Thursday in Mexico, but there are few details on his arrest.
Soto-Barraza, 35, was wanted by the FBI on charges of first and second degree murder, assault on a federal officer, robbery and firearms violations in the killing of Terry in December, 2010, during a shootout in Arizona, near the Mexican border.
“The family is excited but we have two more fugitive defendants in Mexico. This is an ongoing operation and case,” Terry family spokesman Robert Heyer said Thursday.
