Mexican Police Capture Another Drug Cartel Kingpin

Posted: Updated:
Mexico City, Mexico -

(FOX 11) Mexican law enforcement has scored again. Just days after capturing the drug lord known as "El Chapo", they've taken down the kingpin of one of Mexico's other major cartels.

Federal police captured Javier Garza Medrano near the city of Taxco without any shots being fired.

He is believed to be one of the founders of the Gulf Cartel.

And he's also been linked to robberies, kidnapping and extortion. The Gulf Cartel is considered the second most powerful drug cartel in the world.
