The December 2010 slaying of Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry shed light on the U.S. government’s botched gun-smuggling investigation, Operation Fast and Furious, The Washington Times reports.

Now a third suspect is in custody in the shootout that left Terry dead in the Arizona borderlands.

Police in Sinaloa, Mexico, arrested suspect Ivan Soto Barraza, 30.

He is awaiting extradition, the Times reported.

“Brian’s family is pleased to hear of another arrest and we remain hopeful that two additional fugitives believed to be in Mexico will be arrested. Questions remain unanswered about the death of Brian, including details on the failed gun trafficking investigation known as Operation Fast and Furious,” Terry’s cousin told Reuters.

The sentence was part of a plea deal in which Ricardo Montalvo agreed to plead guilty to recruiting others as straw buyers of guns in exchange for having 19 counts dropped, the AP reported.

The 29-year-old former agent was accused of buying nine weapons, more than 20,000 rounds of ammunition and high-capacity magazines for assault rifles.
