Mexican authorities capture most wanted drug kingpin, Servando “La Tuta” Gomez.

MICHOACAN, MEXICO (FILE) (SERVANDO GOMEZ FAMILY) – Mexico has captured the country’s most wanted outstanding drug Lord, Servando “La Tuta” Gomez, leader of the Knights Templar cartel, police said on Friday (February 27), in a boost for President Enrique Pena Nieto as he grapples with grisly gang violence.

Gomez was the prime target of Pena Nieto’s drive to regain control of Michoacan, a violent western state wracked by clashes between the Knights Templar and heavily-armed vigilantes trying to oust them.
