Mexican police arrested the leader of one of the seven major Mexican cartels

Mexican police arrested Jose de Jesus "El Chango" Mendez, a memeber of drug cartel La Familia. "With this arrest, all that remained of the structure of command was destroyed," said a spokesman. Mexican police had already dealt a serious blow to La Familia in December, killing one of its two leaders, Nazario Moreno.

Mexican President Felipe Calderon was greeted on his Twitter account "a blow" by the authorities dealt with organized crime. "Great shot of the federal police against organized crime. One of the most wanted criminals arrested. Congratulations," he said. La Familia is one of seven major Mexican cartels.
