Spanish police have arrested a Colombian drug boss dubbed ‘The Mouse’, the alleged leader of a major cocaine smuggling gang accused of 400 killings

Spanish police have arrested a Colombian drug boss dubbed ‘The Mouse’, the alleged leader of a major cocaine smuggling gang accused of 400 killings, officials said on Saturday. Officers arrested the 40-year-old, whose real name is reportedly Hernan Alonso Villa, in the eastern seaside city of Alicante on Friday, according to a police statement. He is considered ‘the top leader of the military wing of the Oficina de Envigado, a Colombian criminal organisation accused of 400 killings as well as drug-trafficking, extorsion and forced displacements of Colombian citizens’, it said. ‘He is one of the criminals most wanted by the Colombian authorities. He had more than 200 people under his command and was responsible for exporting cocaine to Spain, the United States and Holland,’ the statement said. Spanish officers arrested him under a Colombian extradition warrant for charges including alleged homicide and arms offences. He was carrying 40,000 euros ($54,000) in cash when he was caught, the statement said. Authorities say the ‘Oficina’ gang dates back to the 1980s when it carried out killings for the now-dismantled Medellin Cartel. Spain is one of the main entry points for illegal narcotics into Europe and Colombia is one of the world’s biggest sources of cocaine. Colombia produced 290 tonnes of cocaine in 2013, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.

Spain's Catalonia region to push ahead with burka ban following EU ruling

A burka ban will be brought in by the government of Spain’s Catalonia region in the wake of a European Court of Human Rights ruling that banning veils does not breach human rights laws. Ramon Espadaler, Interior Minister for Catalonia, said that the ban, first proposed in 2013, was in no way an attack on religious freedom as the wearing of helmets and masks in public will also be forbidden. Espadaler announced that the Catalan government aimed to get the ban approved after the summer 2014 recess

Fairbanks man sentenced to 9 years in cocaine case

Fairbanks man linked to local rappers and caught with more than 13 ounces of cocaine in 2012 will spend a little more than nine years in prison. Benjamin Dewayne Smith, once a part owner of Heavy Chevy Entertainment, pleaded guilty in April to having powder and crack cocaine with plans to distribute the drugs. On Wednesday, a federal judge in Fairbanks sentenced Smith, 37, to 110 months in federal prison, to be followed by four years of supervised release. Authorities executing a search warrant at a Wilcox Street apartment in January 2012 found 270 grams of powder cocaine and 107 grams of crack that belonged to Smith in a safe, according to a plea agreement in his case. Smith admitted to using the apartment to distribute drugs, and his wife told investigators they lived at another residence, a prosecutor’s sentencing memorandum says.

Judge accused of buying cocaine as a lawyer attempts to halt disciplinary procedure before hearings even begin

Quebec Superior Court judge facing possible removal from the bench over allegations he bought cocaine during his days as a lawyer has gone to court in an attempt to halt a disciplinary procedure before hearings are even held. In an application for judicial review filed with Federal Court, Justice Michel Girouard is challenging the Canadian Judicial Council’s powers to investigate complaints against judges. Among other arguments, Judge Girouard is saying the council has no business examining his behaviour when he was practising law before his 2010 appointment to the bench. “Only the provincial authority has the jurisdiction to investigate and draw conclusions on the conduct of a lawyer,” his lawyers write in the application. The Council, whose members include Supreme Court of Canada Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin and all superior court chief and associate chief justices, announced in February that it would hold a public inquiry into Judge Girouard’s conduct.

Birmingham heroin and cocaine ring leader sentenced; had tossed $60,000 out of high-rise condo during arrest

A man described by federal prosecutors as the leader of one of Birmingham's largest heroin and cocaine trafficking rings, who threw more than $60,000 in cash out the window of his downtown high-rise condo when he was arrested, was sentenced Thursday to nearly 22 years in federal prison. Billy Williams Jr., 41, was sentenced by U.S.  District Judge Sharon L. Blackburn to 262 months in prison for his role in leading the West End-based ring, according to a statement from U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance, FBI Special Agent in Charge Richard D. Schwein, Jr., IRS Criminal Investigation Special Agent in Charge Veronica Hyman-Pillot, and Jefferson County Sheriff Mike Hale.        Williams pleaded guilty in December 2013 to various drug charges, including using a telephone to traffic drugs and to launder money from the operation. The ring allegedly brought more than $5 million in heroin and cocaine into the Birmingham market in the span of a year. Williams and nine others were originally charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and distributing heroin, cocaine, and other drugs in a 41-count May 2013 federal grand jury indictment.  A superseding indictment in October 2013 removed one defendant and added two.  In addition to being charged in the conspiracy, various defendants were also charged with distributing drugs and laundering money, according to today's statement. "The drug trafficking organization Billy Williams, Jr., led was a significant contributor to our heroin epidemic," Vance said. "This conviction of these eleven heroin traffickers is a great example of how cooperation between federal and local law enforcement can lead to dismantling significant drug-trafficking organizations that are killing our children." "This case is a model of law enforcement coming together to identify and eliminate the criminal element. I would  like to personally thank the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office and other members of the FBI's North Alabama Safe Streets Task Force, as well as IRS-Criminal Investigation Division, and ATF for their hard work in bringing these drug traffickers to justice and making our community a safer place," Schwein stated. IRS-CI Special Agent in Charge Veronica Hyman-Pillot stated that the role of IRS Criminal Investigation in narcotics investigations is to follow the money and financially disrupt major drug trafficking organizations. "This has been illustrated in the financial investigation and subsequent prosecution of Billy Williams, Jr.," she stated. A year-long investigation by the FBI into the drug trafficking operation culminated in the January 25, 2013, arrest of Sammuel Dewayne Gulley, who authorities described as a key member of Williams' organization. Gulley was arrested in possession of two kilograms of nearly pure heroin following a high-speed chase with Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies, according to today's statement.  Later that night, agents seized over one and a half kilograms of cocaine from a home associated with Williams and Gulley.  During his arrest in late May of 2013, Williams threw over $60,000 in cash out of the window of his 12th floor condo at City Federal, according to the statement.  Agents also recovered over $166,000 in cash and over $177,000 in jewelry and other valuables from Williams' condo. Others in the ring who were sentenced today were: Abe Johnson, 51, who received a 54-month sentence Marion Reynolds Jr., 53, who was sentenced to 48 months Walter Johnson, 48, who was sentenced to 42 months
