A Mexican drug cartel officer was arrested in Nebraska Thursday. Jesus Ramon Buena-Peregina was wanted as a federal fugitive in the U.S. for four years. He was previously convicted of possession and distribution of 20 kilos of cocaine.

Officials say Jesus Ramon Buena-Peregina was identified during a traffic stop along Interstate 80 in Seward County after giving a Seward County deputy a fake passport, WOWT reports.

Officials said Buena-Peregina is a known lieutenant in the powerful Sinaloa Drug Cartel. He was previously deported for prior felonies. Authorities said he returned to the U.S. to commit another drug crime: possession with the intent to deliver cocaine.

Good job, Trooper. A simple traffic stop..just like Timothy McVie and a dozen other terrorists, this Sinaloa dirtbag figured he was just too smart for the average American street cop.
