Brother of Juarez Cartel capo arrested


Mexican officials say the brother of the head of the Juarez Cartel has been arrested in the western state of Nayarit, and is being held pending charges of links to organized crime.

A federal law-enforcement official said that Alberto Carrillo Fuentes was detained by federal police Sunday and moved to Mexico City, where prosecutors expect to file as-yet-undetermined charges against him. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the government had not officially announced the arrest.

Carrillo Fuentes appears to be a relatively minor figure in the Mexican underworld. Neither the U.S. nor Mexican governments had publicly announced rewards for him. His brother Vicente Carrillo Fuentes remains one of the most wanted men in both countries, and officials widely describe him as head of the Juarez Cartel.
