28 May 2012. The former governor of the Mexican state of Baja California Sur was arrested on corruption charges, officials told.

Narciso Agundez Montaño was detained on his arrival at Monterrey International Airport, sources in the Nuevo Leon state government said.

The arrest was coordinated with the Baja California Sur state Attorney General’s Office, the sources said. Agundez, who governed the Pacific coast state from 2005-2011, reportedly travelled to Monterrey on family business.

Corruption allegations against Agundez surfaced in June 2011, the Baja California Sur AG’s office said.

Media accounts say Agundez and six other members of his administration are accused of wrongdoing in the sale of properties in the resort town of Cabo San Lucas.
