Venezuelan authorities say they have detained a man with dual Cuban-American citizenship wanted in the U.S. on suspicion of money laundering related to drug trafficking.
Judicial police chief Wilmer Flores says Luis Giro was captured in the central Venezuelan city of Valencia. He did not say when the man was detained.
Flores says the 47-year-old will be deported to the United States. He says Giro is wanted by U.S. authorities for suspected money laundering and bank fraud.
Flores said Tuesday that a police investigation shows Giro has been in Venezuela for a year.
