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.
