The reputed leader of the Caballeros Templarios drug cartel, Servando "Tuta" Gomez Martinez, was captured by Mexican special forces thanks to months of intelligence work that enabled authorities to penetrate his security rings, the national security commissioner said.

The purported kingpin was presented to the media Friday at the Attorney General's Office's hangar at the Mexico City airport, where federal agents led him to a helicopter that transported him to the Altiplano maximum-security prison in the central state of Mexico.
