The Federal Police captured Albert González Peña or Franco Bueno Peña, known as "El Tigre" or "The Tiger" who served as plaza boss in the state of Veracruz by the organization of Los Zetas.
Authorities confirmed that the capture took place on Friday thanks to the hard work in the investigation resulting from an arrest warrant. El Tigre is linked to several crimes among them drug trafficking, extortion and murder.
El Tigre coordinated the collection of dues (cobro de piso) of apartment owners from several businesses, including bars, restaurants and street vendors in Veracruz. He also planned and carried out several kidnappings. The 43 year old man would select people close to him for his victims and easier to collect the ransom.
During his arrest police confiscated three cell phones, a radio device, and other relevant documentation.
