Honduran National Police said yesterday, January 27, that they arrested former national team soccer player Oscar Armando Bonilla Funez, known as Pescado Bonilla, for Aggravated Drug Trafficking.

It is alleged that Bonilla is associated with a criminal structure known as “Los Halcones.”

Allegedly, Los Halcones “operates in the sectors of Gracias a Dios and Atlántida, dedicating itself to the trafficking and marketing of narcotics in an area recognized as an attractive route for drug trafficking to North America and internal trade in the country.”

Bonilla, originally from the municipality of Tela in the department of Atlántida and a resident in the Venice neighbourhood of Tela, was reportedly monitored and tracked by anti-drug officers.  The courts subsequently issued a warrant for his arrest.

Commenting on Bonilla’s arrest, the National Police said that this “reiterates its commitment to combat drug trafficking in its various modalities and to remove individuals linked to this crime from circulation through forceful operations.”
