Mexican drug mafia boss Hector Beltran Leyva arrested

  • Hector Beltran Leyva, a much-wanted drug lord, has reportedly been captured in Mexico.

    The United States had offered a $5m reward for information that could lead to Beltran Leyva’s capture.

    Hector Beltran Leyva took charge of the drug crime syndicate after his brother, Arturo, was killed in a 2009 encounter with Mexican troops.
