Mexican military forces arrested one of the top commanders of Los Zetas Cartel in the border city of Nuevo Laredo. The ruthless commander was listed as an international fugitive.
The arrest took place early this week when military forces clashed with gunmen from the Cartel Del Noreste faction of Los Zetas in Nuevo Laredo. That shootout came after several days of local battles with troops, killing 13 gunmen. One soldier was injured, the Mexican Army revealed.
During those shootouts, military forces arrested Martin “Cadete” Barbosa, the chief of security for the head of the CDN-Los Zetas, Juan Gerardo “El Huevo” Trevino Chavez. Feds turned El Cadete over to Mexico’s Attorney General’s Office.
