A reputed drug kingpin targeted since 1978 finally has been extradited from Mexico to Texas, where prosecutors contend his syndicate pumped tons of drugs and millions of dollars through San Antonio, Houston and elsewhere.

Juan Jose Quintero Payan, 68, is the alleged head of the Quintero syndicate, based in Guadalajara, Mexico. Federal agents brought Quintero to San Antonio, where Monday he quietly had an initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Pamela Mathy.
