SALT LAKE CITY – The Weber-Morgan Narcotics Strike Force and the FBI believe they’ve caught an alleged dealer of the Sinaloa Cartel in Mexico.

Officials say they found methamphetamine worth around around $100,000 in Jose Gil-Sanchez’ car. Police say he fled to Mexico in 2008 after they served a warrant on him.

Officials caught up with Gil-Sanchez on Thursday after hearing that he planned to travel from Tremonton to Boise, Idaho, to deliver meth.

He was booked into the Weber County Jail.
