Mexican police have captured Luis Rodriguez Olivera, known as “El Guero,” in the beleaguered nation's capital. Olivera was a high-ranking member of the Sinaloa drug cartel, and aide-de-camp to Mexico’s most wanted man, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. He was responsible for trafficking cocaine into the United States between 1996 and 2008. Forbes listed Olivera's former boss, Guzman, as the 10th richest man in Mexico in 2011, with a net worth of around $1 billion.
