“El Loco” Deported to Colombia from Venezuela

If you’re a drug dealer, things rarely end well.  Daniel Barrera, “El Loco” or “The Madman” as he is know in Colombia probably went out in the most non-violent way imaginable.  He was deported like a common criminal.

Venezuelan authorities deported the prominent drug-trafficking suspect to Colombia earlier this week, nearly two months after his capture at a payphone in an operation aided by Colombian and U.S. authorities.

Officials called Barrera one of Colombia’s most-wanted drug lords. The bearded 50-year-old was handcuffed and said nothing as he stepped down from a police plane that brought him and five other drug suspects from Venezuela.  If he is subsequently deported to the U.S., it will be the end of a life on the run.
