The wire service reported that Carrillo Fuentes, 51, is believed to have headed the cartel founded by his late brother, Amado Carrillo Fuentes.

DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart issued a statement following the arrest:

“The Drug Enforcement Administration congratulates the Government of Mexico on the arrest of Vicente Carrillo-Fuentes, one of history’s most notorious drug traffickers. Carrillo-Fuentes was the leader of the Juarez Cartel and facilitated murder and violence in Mexico while fueling addiction in the United States and across the world. Once again, our valiant partners in Mexico who pursue these dangerous criminals should be lauded for their efforts.”
