The US Department of State (DOS) announced that a $5 million reward would be given to anyone who will disclose information that would lead to the arrest of Honduran drug trafficker Herlinda Bobadilla.
A reward was also announced for the arrest of Bobadilla’s two sons, Tito Montes Bobadilla and Juan Carlos Montes Bobadilla.
“Today’s action supports U.S. government efforts to fight the destabilizing effects of transnational crime in Central America,” said DOS Spokesperson Ned Price.
The Bobadillas are wanted for their leadership roles in the Montes drug trafficking organization which has grown exponentially since the arrest of Noe Montes Bobadilla, the third Bobadilla son.
The Montes drug trafficking organization is involved with the transportation and distribution of illegal drugs in Central America, Mexico, and the United States.
Noe Montes Bobadilla was extradited to the United States in 2019 and is currently serving a 37-year sentence for conspiracy to distribute more than five kilograms of cocaine intended for unlawful importation to the United States.
The DOS affirmed its commitment to combat illegal drugs in Honduras, “Together, the Department of Justice’s indictment and the Department of State’s reward offers are part of a whole-of-government effort to combat drug trafficking and transnational organized crime globally and in Honduras.”
