MEXICO CITY, August 17. – Mario Armando Ramirez Trevino, “X-20”, alleged leader of the Gulf Cartel, was arrested at 21:34 hours last evening and was delivered to the Deputy Attorney Specialized Investigation of Organized Crime (SEIDO) of PGR. Amid tight security, involving Mexican military vehicles and military personnel, the suspect was transferred from the International Airport in Mexico City, where he arrived from Tamaulipas, the building located at Avenida Paseo de la Reforma number 75.
The Department of Justice United States offered a reward of five million dollars to anyone who furnish information leading to his capture, since it is set by authorities in that country for various crimes. Ramirez Trevino is expected shortly to make a statement to the federal prosecutor, who will determine within the next few hours his legal status. SEIDO facilities were guarded by military personnel and the side of the Paseo de la Reforma was temporarily closed to traffic, because at that place are military vehicles.
