Mexico Arrests Cartel Leader Suspected in Killing of U.S. Agent

Good, lets hope he can be extradited to the States and then executed!
( Oh yeah, we can't do that now either)
MEXICO CITY – Mexican authorities said Monday they have arrested a co-fo of the Zetas drug cartel who they also suspect was involved in the killing of a U.S. customs agent in Mexico in February.

Jesus Enrique Rejon Aguilar is identified as third in command of the criminal organization founded by former elite soldiers. Over the course of a decade, it went from being the military arm of the Gulf Cartel to its own drug-trafficking organization.

Rejon was one of Mexico's most-wanted men and the U.S. State Department had offered a $5 million reward for information leading to his arrest.

ICE agent Jaime Zapata

U.S. officials say Jaime Zapata, a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent, was killed and another agent wounded while driving through northern Mexico in February 2011.

Mexican federal police said he was captured "without gunfire" outside Mexico City in the town of Atizapan on Sunday. He was presented to reporters and photographers Monday.
