Drug lords captured, killed
March 5, 2015 - Mexican police and soldiers on Wednesday captured Omar Trevino Morales, widely considered to be the most important leader of the Zetas drug cartel that once carved a path of brutal bloodshed along the country's northern border with the U.S
The Associated Press reports that the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration had offered a $5 million reward for his capture for drug trafficking. This is in addition to a 30 million peso ($2 million) bounty posted by the Mexican government
DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart said in a statement, "The Zetas represent the worst in global organized crime: violence, intimidation, corruption, and brutal killings. Today's arrest strikes at the heart of the leadership structure of the Zetas and should serve as yet another warning that no criminal is immune from arrest and prosecution."
