A Mexican man accused of assembling the crew of drug robbers who killed a U.S. Border Patrol agent in a 2010 shootout in Arizona was indicted this week, the seventh person to be charged in the case, reports the L.A. Times.

Rosario Rafael Burboa-Alvarez, 30, faces federal charges of first-degree murder, second-degree murder, robbery and attempted robbery after a Tucson grand jury indicted him Wednesday in connection with the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

Burboa-Alvarez was still in custody on a previous conviction when the Tucson grand jury handed down its indictment this week. The indictment says he had assembled a crew of men to cross into the U.S. to rob traffickers moving drugs through the Arizona desert.

There's two more left. We all know who they are

Chuck, Absolutely correct. They both are strongly disliked by any active and/or retired L.E.O's. I speak with on a regular basis. Sure glad I'm retired. Don't know if I could do it with the restraint rules used today.

One is on vacation at Martha's Vineyard.

Lots more than two...seems like the RICO statute could be applied as an ongoing criminal enterprise. Course, I think illegal aliens should be nailed using this since they're here, keep working and sending money back to a foreign criminal group.

My wife had worked with Officer Terry, she said he was a good guy.
