By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: An MS-13 gang suspect on El Salvador’s top 100 most wanted list was detained in Virginia this month, FoxNews reports.

On December 1, 2022, authorities in the U.S. detained Herberth Bonilla-Garcia,40.

“Herberth Bonilla-Garcia has a history of unlawfully entering the U.S. and this time he apparently did so to escape justice in his home country,” said Assistant Field Office Director Erik Weiss of ERO Washington, D.C.

Bonilla-Garcia had been deported from the U.S. twice before.

In 2015, El Salvador issued arrest warrants for Bonilla-Garcia on suspicion of illicit association and aggravated extortion.

Crime Stoppers El Salvador said Bonilla-Garcia is a member of the MS-13 street gang.

Gangs in the Central American country are estimated around 70,000 and are responsible for violent crimes.

Salvadoran President Nayib Bukele is seeking re-election in 2024 and has revealed in polls that suggest approval ratings of near 90% for both himself and his gang crackdown in the country.
