Zetas Leader Moved to Maximum Security Prison

The leader of the Mexican drug cartel Los Zetas, Miguel Angel Treviño Morales, has been transported to a maximum-security prison in central Mexico.

According to Fox News Latino, Morales was captured in northern Mexico on Monday and was transferred by navy helicopter at around 1:00 p.m. on Friday.

Morales is facing charges for racketeering, murder and money laundering. Both the Mexican and U.S. governments posted multi-million dollar rewards for the Zetas' leader's arrest.

His arrest comes only a year after the death of former Los Zetas chief, Heriberto Lazcano Lazcano.

Fox News Latino reports that the leader is expected to provide his first statement to a judge in prison in the town of Almoloya de Juarez.
