MEXICO CITY (AP) - Mexican police have arrested suspected Zeta
gang leader Gregorio Sauceda Gamboa, one of Mexico's 24 most-wanted drug traffickers.
Federal police say Sauceda Gamboa was detained in the border
city of Matamoros, across the border from Brownsville, Texas.
Sauceda Gamboa appears on a list of 24 alleged drug traffickers
published by prosecutors in March. Authorities have offered rewards
of up to $2.1 million for each suspect.
Police said Wednesday that they also seized five rifles and more
than 4,500 rounds of ammunition in the raid that netted Sauceda
The Zetas are a violent drug gang based in the states along
Mexico's Gulf coast, and have been involved in many of the killings
that have taken more than 10,650 lives since 2006.
