The 37 most wanted criminals in Mexico

Mexico‘s navy on Thursday presented the top leader of the Gulf Cartel, Jorge Eduardo “El Coss” Costilla

Mexico’s navy on Thursday presented the top leader of the Gulf Cartel, Jorge Eduardo El Coss Costilla, one of the most wanted drug lords and whose detention is seen as an outstanding victory against crime organized.

Costilla was arrested without a struggle Wednesday afternoon during an operation in the port of Tampico, Tamaulipas, where cartel region is active and is the scene of bloody clashes against its former armed wing Los Zetas, now become bloodthirsty.

The arrest came after the Navy troops chased a vehicle with armed men entered a home where he was the drug lord.

In his presentation to the media at a Navy installation in Mexico City, El Coss , populated black eyebrows and a frown, was guarded by two lions and wore body armor.

The arrest comes after last week that the Navy captured another of the leaders of the criminal organization, Mario El Gordo Cárdenas Guillén, brother of the historic leader of the Gulf Cartel, Osiel Cardenas was arrested in 2003 and extradited to the U.S. in 2007.

Costilla was an enemy of the Cardenas family.

Bloody war and the top 37

Costilla ranks high on a list of 37 wanted drug lords that the Mexican government published in 2009 and had a bounty of 30 million pesos (2.3 million) who could provide information for their capture. Over 20 kingpins on that list have been captured or killed.

Vergara said Costilla is involved in at least two investigations of Mexican authorities and is required by a federal court in Texas, while the Justice Department offered up to U.S. $ 5 million for information leading to his capture.

With his arrest, the Gulf cartel appears increasingly weak and bloody turf wars for control of the northeastern border with Texas now intensify, analysts say.

This could be a headache for the next president, Enrique Peña Nieto, who takes office in December. Peña is committed to quickly reduce the number of executions.

Since Calderon took office in December 2006 have been recorded in the country more than 55,000 deaths related to drug violence.
