Colombia’s president says last big drug lord has been captured

BOGOTA, Colombia –  President Juan Manuel Santos announced Tuesday evening that a man he described as Colombia’s last big-time drug lord had been captured in neighboring Venezuela. It was the third arrest of a purported Colombian drug boss in the last year.

Santos said alleged drug boss Daniel “Loco” Barrera was arrested in the Venezuelan city of San Cristobal after months of multinational cooperation that included help from the United States and other nations.

“The last of the great capos has fallen,” Santos said in a brief statement to journalists. He didn’t answer questions.
