WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Mexican federal police commander has been charged for allegedly leaking confidential law enforcement information to warn members of a Mexican drug cartel about a U.S. narcotics probe, the U.S. Justice Department said on Wednesday.
U.S. Justice officials said a complaint had been filed against 45-year-old Ivan Reyes Arzate of Mexico City in February for "conspiring with others to corruptly impede a U.S.-based narcotics investigation." The record was made public on Wednesday, it added in a statement.
