Sajid Emilio “El Cadete” Quintero Navidad was arrested at the San Ysidro Port of Entry and was immediately taken before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jan Adlers who formally charged him and unsealed the indictment against him, thus making it public. It remains unclear why Quintero’s arrest was announced two weeks after he went before the court. Quintero is the cousin of Mexican drug lord Rafael Caro Quintero, one of the kingpins responsible for the murder of U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration Agent Rafael “Kiki” Camarena. Caro Quintero had been serving a lengthy prison sentence in Mexico but was released before the U.S. was notified. The convicted drug lord is facing multiple charges connected to Camarena’s murder and to his trafficking activities.
