Mexico's federal police have announced the arrests of nine alleged drug traffickers including a senior officer.
The announcement of the arrests comes from Mexico City.
The nine suspects include Victor Manuel Felix or "El Senor".
Authorities say Felix is a close associate of Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.
The arrests took place during "Operation Colmena", which included raids in Jalisco, Quintana Roo and Mexico City.
Authorities also seized close to half a ton of cocaine, $500,000 in cash, four vehicles and communications equipment.
