DEA Statement on Arrest of Omar Trevino Morales

MAR 04 (WASHINGTON) - DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart today issued the following statement on the arrest in Mexico of Zetas leader Omar Trevino Morales:

"The Drug Enforcement Administration proudly congratulates the Government of Mexico and their leadership in the arrest of Omar Trevino Morales, head of the Zetas cartel. The Zetas represent the worst in global organized crime: violence, intimidation, corruption, and brutal killings. Today’s arrest strikes at the heart of the leadership structure of the Zetas and should serve as yet another warning that no criminal is immune from arrest and prosecution. Omar Trevino Morales facilitated and oversaw huge drug shipments into the United States and elsewhere, and has been charged in several judicial districts. We are pleased that he will face justice for his crimes, and look forward to future successes with our Mexican partners.”
