Mexican Mafia Member Captured In Mexico.

A Mexican Mafia member wanted by the FBI has
been captured in Mexico.

The FBI says Tony Gonzales Rodriguez was arrested by Mexican
officials in Baja California and turned over to U.S. authorities on
Saturday.

Authorities say the 37-year-old Rodriguez is the second-highest
ranking member of the Mexican mafia in Riverside County's Coachella
Valley.

Rodriguez was indicted earlier this year on federal drugs
charges. He's being held in San Bernardino.

The FBI says Mexican Mafia members have dealt methamphetamine
and sold weapons while directing most of the gang violence in
Coachella Valley.
