Most-Wanted Drug Lord Captured In Mexico

MEXICO CITY (AP) – A Mexican federal official says federal police have captured Servando “La Tuta” Gomez, one of the most-wanted drug lords and who once terrorized western Michoacan state.

The official says Gomez was captured early Friday in the capital city of Morelia without a shot fired. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the case.

Gomez was the leader of the Knights Templar cartel, a quasi-religious criminal group that once ruled all of the state, controlling politics and commerce. He evaded capture for more than a year after the federal government took over the state to try to restore order.
