CNN/Mexico: Beltran Leyva drug boss arrested

(CNN) -- The head of the Beltran Leyva drug cartel has been captured, Mexican federal police announced.
Carlos Beltran Leyva, 40, was arrested Wednesday in the northwest city of Culiacan after showing a fake driver's license with the alias "Carlos Gamez," which authorities knew to look for, police said Saturday in a statement. He later admitted to his identity.
Police also found at least two guns, several cartridges, cell phones and other items during the arrest.
It came just two weeks after the drug boss' brother, Arturo Beltran Leyva -- known as "El Barbas" or "The Bearded One" -- was killed in a shootout in Cuernavaca, outside Mexico City.

  • he's no drug lord in any way, the man was captured December 29th, in the city of Los Mochis, Sinaloa, but presented yesteraday to the press, and the federal police claimed he was just arrested in the city of Culiacan, and a small quantity of coke and some weapons were planted on him, (including one of the rifles the federal agents carry) he was captured only because he is brother of a drug traffickers, but he is not in the business, i'm not defending him, but it makes me mad that the u.s is spen More..
