U.S. Marshals arrest Mexican cartel member in Dominican Republic

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- A man U.S. Marshals say has been on the run for the past three years is now behind bars.

Accused Mexican cartel member Francisco Monte, 35, was arrested November 10th by Marshals and local authorities in the Dominican Republic.

Monte has been charged by the DEA with being part of a large drug organization, which is said to have filtered cocaine into Charleston from Mexico. He is also charged with laundering money as part of the criminal organization.

Monte has been brought back to Charleston by U.S. Marshals, and is currently being housed at the Charleston County Detention Center.

"This case illustrates so much in law enforcement, cooperation, dedication, and determination," said South Carolina U.S. Marshal Kelvin Washington. "The austerity of Mr. Monte's charges caused him to run; however, he was not out of the grasp of the U.S. Marshals and our partnered organizations."
