The capture of a brutal drug kingpin by Mexico's marines represents a significant victory for authorities in both the U.S. and south of the border.

The Marines swooped on Miguel Angel Treviòo Morales’ pickup truck outside the border city of Nuevo Laredo on Monday.

Morales, leader of the notorious Zetas cartel, had $2 million and a small arsenal of weapons on him at the time.
