Calle-Serna is allegedly responsible for financing the dispatch and coordination of multi-ton cocaine shipments via speedboats, fishing vessels, and self-propelled semi-submersibles to Mexico.

Additionally, Calle-Serna since 2005 allegedly has organized, armed, and commanded a vast network of heavily armed paramilitary groups known of “Los Rastrojos” that provide security to cocaine trafficking activities and conduct extortion in Colombia, and he has been linked to kidnappings, tortures, and assassinations in Colombia, Venezuela, and Panama. Calle-Serna was formerly a guerilla fighter and is believed to be associated with the Designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC) and Autodefensas Unidas de Colombia (AUC).
