Mexico captures 1 of 37 ‘most-wanted’ traffickers

MEXICO CITY – Mexican soldiers have detained one of the nation’s most-wanted drug cartel lieutenants.

Army Gen. Luis Arturo Oliver says Hector Huerta Rios was detained Tuesday in a suburb of the northern industrial city of Monterrey. The capture was announced hours before the arrival of U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on a two-day visit to Mexico.

Huerta Rios was included on a “most-wanted” list of 24 top traffickers and 13 of their lieutenants that officials published Monday. Authorities had offered rewards of up to $2 million for the drug lords and up to $1 million for the lieutenants, including Huerta Rios. It was not clear if a reward was paid in this case.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
