Mexico Arrests Reputed Chief Drug Runner

A Guatemalan man described by U.S. authorities as Central America’s most-wanted drug smuggler was captured by Mexican agents at the capital’s airport in an arrest officials here hailed as important for the hemisphere. Otto Herrera, a 39-year-old Guatemalan trucking company boss, did not resist when federal authorities seized him at Mexico City’s Juarez International Airport on Wednesday as he met a woman identified as his girlfriend who had arrived on a flight from Guadalajara, Attorney General Rafael Macedo de la Concha said. Mexico made the arrest at the request of U.S. authorities who had offered a $5 million reward for his capture, Macedo de la Concha said. Herrera faces U.S. charges of drug trafficking and organized crime, as well as similar charges in Guatemala.Full Story
