MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico's Navy has captured the leader of the brutal Zetas drug cartel in northern Mexico, according to several media reports on Monday.
A spokesman for the Mexican Navy said he could not yet confirm the reports of Miguel Angel Trevino's arrest but that the government would issue a statement shortly on the matter.
The U.S. State Department has offered a reward of up to $5 million for information leading to Trevino's capture.
