Aug. 1 (UPI) -- Authorities in Mexico arrested Nahum Abraham Sicairos Montalvo, an alleged financial operator for the Sinaloa cartel wanted by the United States, Mexico's Attorney General's office said.

The office said Monday that federal agents detained Nahum Abraham Sicairos Montalvo, also known as El Quinceañero, for extradition to the United States.

Sicairos Montalvo and an alleged associate identified as Filiberto N. were arrested at a residence in Atizapán de Zaragoza. The associate had 20 "doses" of a drug with characteristics similar to methamphetamine, officials said.

In addition to the extradition request, Sicairos Montalvo had an Interpol red notice, meaning he was wanted by an international tribunal.
