MEXICO CITY-- Mexican marines say they have captured a regional boss for the Detas Drug Gang that is accused of killing U.S. Immigration Agent Jaime Zatapa.
Sergio "El Toto" mora was among several suspects presented to the media Monday in Mexico City.
A statement from the military said he was arrested in a Sunday morning raid in the city of Saltillo in northern Mexico.
A spokesman did not say if Mora was directly involved in the February 15th attack that killed Zapata and injured Victor Avila of El Paso.
The spokesman did say that Mora was the boss of Julian Zapata Espinoza who was arrested last week and allegedly confessed that he took part in the shooting.
