Man Extradited by Colombia Not on Guns Only Drugs Now Co-D Cardona Pleads Guilty

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 22 – A man extradited in from Colombia was presented on March 22, 2024 before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Gary Stein. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the SDNY Mag Court.

  Olmes Duran Ibarguen had been indicted on cocaine importation and machine gun charges.

But it emerged that Colombia had only extradited him on the cocaine counts, and so the machine gun charges, like those on which former Honduras President Juan Orlando Hernandez was convicted earlier in the month, would in this case be dropped. 

  The day's CJA lawyer, from a large law firm based in New Jersey, consented to detention.  

On May 29, co-defendant Juan Felipe Santibanez Cardona pled guilty, with sentencing set for October 21.

 The case is US v. Montoya Garcia, et al., 21-cr-692 (Caproni)
