The Mexican federal attorney’s office (PGR) said today it had arrested Felipe Angel Zamora Alvarez, administrator of Customs in Altamira, Tamaulipas, and presented him to the Federal Public Ministry.

Peru is also reporting a major narcobust related to that world-famous narcoairline with which U.S. businesses have now been forbidden to do business. Show of efficiency time to coincide with the FTA debate?

La captura del funcionario se dio en cumplimiento de una orden de localización y presentación, con el fin de que declare sobre la introducción ilegal al país del mayor cargamento de cocaína en la historia, de 11 mil 720 kilogramos.

The arrest of the official came as the result of a warrant for arrest and questioning over the illegal introduction into Mexico of the biggest shipment of cocaine in history: 11,720 kg.

Ten tons of Bolivian marching power. Wow.

Zamora Alvarez y otros presuntos implicados de la Aduana de Altamira son interrogados en las oficinas de la Subprocuraduría de Investigación Especializada contra la Delincuencia Organizada (Siedo) para determinar su responsabilidad.

Zamora and other suspects from Altamira Customs are being questioned at SIEDO [organized crime division] offices to determine their culpability.

Lo anterior, en el marco de las investigaciones que se derivan del aseguramiento del alcaloide en Tampico, informó la dependencia en un comunicado.

The questioning is part of an investigation into the seizure of drugs in Tampico, according to an official press release.

El aseguramiento de la droga, efectuado por personal del Ejército Mexicano en Tampico, es el más alto en los registros que se tienen en el país en el combate al narcotráfico.

The drugs seizure, effected by the Mexican Army, is the biggest ever recorded.

Is Zamora related to former Treasury Secretary Gil Díaz, like everyone else who ran Customs houses in Mexico under Fox? Or is the fact that he is not why he is busted rather than not being?
