Miguel Trevino, leader of the Zeta drug cartel, was detained early Monday morning in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico.
The Zetas are considered one of the most powerful and brutal gangs in Mexico and have been blamed for many vicious crimes.
CBS 7 News spoke with a local DEA agent who says there is little known influence of the Zeta cartel in West Texas.
He believes the Zetas will not disappear even though their leader has been removed. He says most cartels will replace their leaders but, they often become more vulnerable with new leadership.
