March 5 , 2015
Omar Trevino Morales, one of Mexico’s most wanted drug lords, has been arrested in Monterrey city, the police said.
He was believed to be heading the infamous Zetas drugs cartel since his brother, Miguel Angel, was captured in 2013. Morales faces charges of drug trafficking, murder and kidnapping in Mexico and the US.
His arrest comes just days after another cartel boss, Servando Gomez, was captured in Mexico. Gomez was the head of the Knights Templar cartel.
