Xolos reserve soccer player charged with smuggling meth from Mexico – The San Diego Union-Tribune

A player for a professional soccer club in Tijuana has been arrested at the border and accused of trying to smuggle methamphetamine into the United States.

Daniel Gomez, a defender with Club Tijuana Xoloitzcuintles de Caliente’s reserve team, was arrested early in the morning on April 5 and charged with importing a controlled substance. According to a complaint in the U.S. District Court in the Southern District of California in San Diego, he tried to bring in nearly 48-pounds of packaged meth.

After a hearing on Tuesday a judge ordered Gomez to remain detained because of a flight risk, according to court records and the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

The Xolos did not return a request for comment, and a voicemail message left with Gomez’s attorney was not returned.
