Colombian authorities have arrested the leader of one of the country's powerful drug cartels "Norte del Valle" Wilson Caicedo.

This cartel is one of the largest global suppliers of drugs. The operation to apprehend the drug lord involved a special army task force, including air assault units, and the prosecutorís office.

When Caicedo realized he was being followed, he abandoned his car and tried to cover up his tracks at a large shopping mall, but was seized nonetheless.

Now he could face extradition to the U.S.
