Suspect Arrested In Brian Terry Murder

posted on April 14, 2017

Fox News is reporting that a drug cartel member, who is suspected of murdering Border Patrol agent Brian Terry nearly seven years ago with a gun from the Operation Fast and Furious debacle, has been arrested in Mexico.

A1F Daily readers will likely recall that Operation Fast and Furious was the deadly Obama-era fiasco in which the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) told gun store owners to sell gun runners as many firearms as they wanted, then didn’t track them—losing as many as 2,000 guns to criminals (mostly Mexican drug cartels). In late 2010, a cartel member gunned Terry down with one of the rifles lost in the ATF screw-up.

According to Fox, the suspect, Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes, was apprehended by a joint U.S.-Mexico law enforcement task force that included the Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Marshals and the Border Patrol Tactical Unit. A $250,000 reward had been sought for information leading to the arrest of Osorio-Arellanes, who is finally in custody seven years after the murder.
