NUEVO LAREDO, Tamaulipas — The No. 2 man at the criminal organization known as Los Zetas was arrested in the border city of Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas on Tuesday, January 26th.
An elite group of Navy personnel in coordination with several other federal agencies captured Eleazar “El Chelelo” Medinas Rojas and three other people during a routine inspection of a vehicle.
The inspection revealed 4 high-caliber weapons and a bag with 1 kilogram of cocaine in addition to the members of Los Zetas.
Medina Rojas was released from prison last year after serving an eight-year sentence and resumed his life of crime, becoming second in command of the drug cartel.
According to Milenio, the man is wanted in the U.S. for drug trafficking, violence and kidnapping; and it was said that he was currently running operations in Nuevo Laredo, his hometown.
Before his arrest in 2007, he was identified as a key member of the Gulf Cartel, engaged in kidnapping and extortion in Nuevo León.
