On 11 April, the Colombian National Police shared that Pitt has been arrested, having found him from the photo shared on Facebook.

Taking a trip to the tourist spot Cerro de Los Cristales and nabbing pictures by a statue that would seal his fate.

The pictures at the popular landmark led authorities to the property where Pitt would be arrested.

"Before hanging up the intercom, the uniformed officers arrived inside the apartment, without giving him time to escape from the police siege. There he was notified of the extradition request issued by the Southern District Court of California for conspiracy to import cocaine," a police statement noted.

Pitt was then captured and said to have offered a bribe to the agents, reports the Mexicanist.

Now, Colombian officials are attempting to hand over Pitt to the U.S Government, with an extradition order being requested.

"This person has an arrest warrant for extradition to the United States by the DEA, for the shipment of several hundred kilos to the United States. Additional information is that he also worked with the family of Mexico's most dangerous drug trafficker, El Chapo Guzman. This is how the US authorities have linked him," General Vargas noted.
