Mexican Police Nab Drug Kingpin

MEXICO CITY – Mexican authorities arrested on Friday one of the leaders of the Gulf drug cartel in the northern part of the country, the National Security Commission (CNS) said.

Hector Adrian N, known as “La Yegua,” was on the government’s most-wanted list, the head of the CNS, Renato Sales, said in a message to the press.

According to Sales, La Yegua was arrested in Monterrey, the capital of the northern state of Nuevo Leon, without firing a single shot.

The Nuevo Leon state Attorney General’s Office requested a warrant to carry out searches in the Cumbres Elite neighborhood, where the leader of the Gulf carted was found.

La Yegua allegedly oversaw fuel theft operations, extorsion rackets and kidnappings, as well as drug trafficking and people smuggling in the states of Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, San Luis Potosi, and Veracruz.

Authorities also detained Christian Aaron N, a close associate of La Yegua, who was reportedly in charge of logistics during kidnappings and drug trafficking operations.

The two detained men “will be delivered to authorities in Tampico, Tamaulipas, who have ordered their arrest,” the head of the CNS said.
