Authorities have found guns from Operation Fast and Furious in Columbia in August. They were confiscated in a raid on “Oficina de Envigado” leader Ericson Vargas, known as “Sebastian.”
“Two rifles that were seized in February with ‘Frank’, the brother of Sebastian also are part of the tracking operations of the ATF, the same as 14 Five-seven guns we have found in several raids,” an anonymous high-ranking source within Colombia’s National Police said (translated from Spanish).
Fast & Furious was a government gun walking scheme that allowed over 2,000 guns to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. These guns are connected to the deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and over 300 Mexican citizens. They have been found at twelve crime scenes across America and thousands are still missing.
El Tiempo claims an estimated 200 guns are in Medellin, Colombia in the hands of “Oficina de Envigado” and criminals “Calatrava” and “Pacheli,” and these guns were supplied by the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.
