The number two leader of the Zetas drug cartel -- one of the most violent in Mexico -- has been arrested

MEXICO CITY, Mexico (Dec. 28) – Mexican authorities have arrested a senior drug trafficker with close links to the country's most wanted man, Sinaloa cartel boss and Mexico’s most wanted man Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who has suffered a series of setbacks in recent past.

According to details; Luis Rodriguez Olivera, known as “El Guero,” captured by Mexican police in the capital city of Mexico. Luis Rodriguez Olivera was responsible for trafficking cocaine into the United States between 1996 and 2008 for Guzmna’s gang and for whom U.S. authorities are offering a reward of up to $5 million.

Rodriguez Olivera and his brothers left the Sinaloa cartel someway in 2005 and later had developed a strong relationship with Guzman's rivals in the Los Zetas cartel, but U.S. and Mexican authorities could not immediately say where the commitment of the 39-year-old Rodriguez Olivera lay at the time of his arrest on Tuesday in Mexico City.

Forbes listed Olivera's former boss, Guzman, as the 10th richest man in Mexico in 2011, with a net worth of around $1 billion.
