August 3, 2019

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say a woman wanted in New Mexico in a drug trafficking case has been arrested in Utah.

The FBI said detectives from the Utah County Sheriff’s Office and the Provo Police Department booked 29-year-old Marysol Pena into jail Friday on suspicion of intent to distribute a controlled substance and of violation of probation or parole.

The FBI also said Pena was sought on a federal warrant charging her with conspiracy and with drug distribution crimes.

According to the FBI, arrangements will be made to return Pena to New Mexico to face federal charges. Those charges include conspiracy and drug distribution crimes.

Pena remained jailed Saturday. Online court records don’t list an attorney for her who could comment on the allegations.
