Elements of the Federal Police and the Mexican Army captured early today Omar Trevino, alias ‘Z-42’, the alleged leader of the bloody cartel Los Zetas, in an exclusive village in the northeast of the country, said sources of the Attorney General of the Republic and the Ministry of Interior.
Trevino would have taken the leadership after his brother Miguel Angel Trevino, alias ‘Z-40’, was catched in July 2013, who was arrested by federal forces in the town of San Pedro Garza Garcia.
The Attorney-General of Mexico indicates in a record of his criminal profile that Omar Trevino would be the “leader of the criminal organization Los Zetas” and faces charges of organized crime and possession of firearms for the exclusive use of the Army, Navy and Air Force.
Furthermore, a reward of 30 million pesos (about $ 2 million) was offered for information leading to his capture.
The US Drug Enforcement Administration also placed him among the most wanted, with a reward of five million dollars.
