CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuela's top security official says authorities have captured an alleged Colombian drug trafficker.
Justice Minister Nestor Reverol says National Guard troops were joined by officials from the National Anti-Drug Office to catch Juan Carlos Pena Silva on the Caribbean island of Margarita.
Reverol announced the capture on Thursday through messages posted on Twitter, saying the suspect is wanted on drug trafficking charges in the United States and in neighboring Colombia.
Venezuela is a major cocaine transit country.
Colombian and U.S. officials say the majority of smuggling flights bound for Mexico and Central America pass through the South American nation.
