The wife of the leader of one of Mexico’s top drug cartels has been arrested, the Interior Ministry said on Sunday.
Rosalinda Gonzalez Valencia was held in Zapopan in western Jalisco state, where the Jalisco Nueva Generacion cartel is based.
Gonzalez is married to ring leader Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes alias El Mencho, who is wanted by the United States.
The navy arrested Gonzalez without firing a single shot on Saturday, Interior Minister Alfonso Navarrete said at a press conference.
She is suspected of administering illicit funds, according to the minister.
