Mexico arrests alleged drug operative – Associated Press

Police raided a church service in western Mexico and arrested a man known as “The Truck” who is suspected of moving a half ton of crystal methamphetamine into the United States each month, federal officials said Monday.Authorities detained Miguel Angel Beraza and another drug suspect after surrounding a church in Apatzingan in drug-plagued Michoacan state, said Ramon Pequeno, head of the Federal Police’s anti-drug unit. About 40 others at the Mass were brought in for questioning.

DEA Acting Administrator Michele Leonhart said Beraza is a high-ranking lieutenant in the La Familia drug cartel, and that his arrest is the result of the “resolute partnership” between the U.S. and Mexico.
