NATIONAL NEWS (CNN) — The suspected leader of Mexico's New Juarez cartel has been arrested. Alberto Carrillo Fuentes, also known as "Ugly Betty," was captured in the western state of Nayarit.
The arrest is the latest in a series of high profile drug arrests.
Last month Mexican authorities apprehended Mario Armondo Ramirez Trevino, a suspected leader of the country's Gulf Cartel, and in July they nabbed Zetas leader Miguel Angel Trevino Morales, one of Mexico's most wanted drug lords.
