In March 2004, the detainee was sentenced to 26 years of prison for several crimes, reported the journal Vanguardia. Months after a court in Bucaramanga granted him permission to leave the prison for 72 hours and he never came back.

Last year authorities managed to arrest a thousand 508 members of Los Urabeños, which along with Los Rastrojos, are one of the country’s most powerful criminal gangs, created by paramilitaries involved with drug trafficking.
