MEXICO CITY (AP) - Mexican police have captured a woman wanted
in the United States for allegedly smuggling $2 million in cocaine-trafficking profits for a powerful drug cartel.

The Attorney General's Office says Olga Lerma was arrested in
western Jalisco state after police spent three months tracking her
movements.

The agency announced her arrest Sunday. Lerma is wanted in Texas
for smuggling $2 million as a top financial operator for Ignacio Coronel, a suspected leader of the Pacific drug cartel, the agency said.

Mexico is considering a U.S. request for her extradition, which could be delayed by months if she appeals.
