Federal authorities in San Diego charged a high-ranking Mexican law enforcement official and 42 others as part of a crackdown on a major Mexican drug cartel — the Fernando Sanchez Organization — that allegedly was involved in murders and kidnappings, the San Diego Tribune reported.

The Mexican official, Jesus Quinonez Marquez, director of international liaison for the Baja California Attorney General’s Office, was charged with working with the organization, the paper reported.

The paper reported that the leader of the cartel, Fernando Sanchez Arellano, a nephew of notorious brothers and cartel leaders Javier, Ramon and Benjamin Arellano Félix, was not arrested.

“The presence of foreign-based drug-trafficking organization members and associates in San Diego will not be tolerated.” U.S. Attorney Laura E.
