Elements of the Marina (Semar) on Saturday arrested Carlos Antonio Ramirez Rodriguez, "El Flako" in Coahuila.
Federal sources said that Ramirez Rodriguez kept a low profile in the area of Piedras Negras. However, Semar reported that during a tour of prevention in the State, while on the road Nuevo Laredo-Piedras Negras, Marina elements stopped and arrested "El Flako" who identified himself as Jefe de Plaza for Los Zetas in Piedras Negras.
Officials said El Flako assumed leadership of this criminal group after the capture of Daniel Sierra Menera, which occurred in March 2015.
According to Semar, the alleged criminal leader tried to evade the Marina, and a pursuit commenced.
He was ultimately stopped, after inspecting the car he was riding, weapons, ammunition and marijuana were seized.
