Juárez Cartel Kingpin snatched

fuenteNachdem sie im Februar erst den Boss des größten mexikanischen Sinaloa-Kartells gefasst hatten, haben sie nun den Anführer der Konkurrenz vom Juárez-Kartel festgenommen. Das Kartel macht laut Wikipedia rund 200 Millionen Dollar mit Koks… pro Woche.

The alleged leader of the Juarez drug cartel - one of Mexico's most powerful crime syndicates - has been arrested, government officials say. Vicente Carrillo Fuentes, known as "the Viceroy", was held in the northern city of Torreon. The arrest is the latest in a series of high profile operations against drug lords in Mexico this year.

He is said to have waged war with the rival Sinaloa gang over control of trafficking routes to the US. The war left thousands dead in and around Ciudad Juarez on the border with the United States between 2009 and 2011. The US had offered a reward of $5m for his arrest.
