Zetas Leader Captured

Last year, former Los Zetas leader, Heriberto ‘El Lazca’ Lazcano, was killed fighting against the Mexican military.  This week his replacement,  Miguel Angel Trevino (aka Z40), surrendered to Mexican Marines instead of following to closely in El Lazca’s footsteps.  [RumorInt has it that Trevino cut a sweet deal, with Mexican authorities].

So expect more violence as the remnants of the Los Zetas fight it out to see who becomes the leader, Trevino’s brother Omar will likely be in the mix but expect some major nastiness, and the other cartels (especially the Knights Templar) to move in quick.
