FB Post Gone Wrong, Led To The Arrest Of Mexican Drug Lord ‘El Pitt’

A couple photograph of the duo was uploaded on Facebook by the girlfriend of El Pitt, a drug lord and cartel member who is wanted in 200 countries at the moment. The photograph led to the arrest of the criminal as it alerted the US’s DEA.

Brian Donaciano Olgun Verdugo, also known as "El Pitt," was detained by Columbian authorities at a fancy apartment in the city of Colombia, where he'd been working starting earlier this year. He is also one of the key men of jailed leader Joaqun "El Chapo" Guzmán gang.

The US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) informed Colombian authorities in February that El Pitt had infiltrated the nation. Police were able to locate down the couple thanks to a Facebook post by the unnamed model, which showed them near Los Cristales, a mountaintop statue of Jesus Christ.

"Breaking all security rules, including only using encrypted applications," a police source said, "the girl convinced him to capture a photograph kissing across from Los Cristales mountain."

El Tiempo is a Spanish word that means "time." "She uploaded the photo to her Facebook account right away."

At Jose Maria Cordova International Airport in Rionegro, Colombia, he was also seen with another woman. Berdugo allegedly offered a bribe of USD 2,65,000 (£202,897) for his freedom after his arrest. Berdugo will now be extradited to the United States to face drug trafficking accusations. In as many as 196 countries, he had an active Interpol red warrant for his arrest.
