Mexican gang leader jailed

By Marion V. Ali

Leonor Nava Romero, the alleged boss of the Los Rojos cartel, is in prison following his arrest on Friday. Mexican federal police say Romero, also known as The Claw or The Tiger, was armed with an assault rifle and ammunition.

Romero is alleged to be a close partner of one of Mexico’s most wanted crime barons, Hector Beltran Leyva, and accused of murders and kidnappings. He is also reportedly connected to the murder of eight officers of the National Defense Secretary in 2008.
