Mexico Captures Drug Cartel Founder
LA Times – Mexican officials on Monday announced the capture of Jesus Rejon Aguilar a.k.a. Mamito, one of the country’s most wanted fugitives. Rejon is an army deserter who authorities say helped create the vicious Zetas gang and is suspected in the slaying of a U.S. federal agent.
Among numerous alleged crimes, Rejon was wanted in connection with the Feb. 15 ambush death of Jaime Zapata, an agent with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency on temporary assignment in Mexico. A second agent with Zapata was wounded in the shooting on a highway near the central city of San Luis Potosi.
