“The Coast Guard has caught a big one: arresting alleged Mexican drug lord Francisco Javier Arellano-Felix as he was deep sea fishing off the coast of Baja California. Authorities accused Arellano-Felix, 36, of being the enforcer for the gang named after – and run by – his family, reports CBS News correspondent Bill Whitaker. Authorities believe he ordered the decapitation of three men – two of them police officers – south of Tijuana this summer. He was captured when the crew of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Monsoon boarded a U.S.-registered sport fishing boat at 9 a.m. Monday about 15 miles off the coast of Mexico's Baja California peninsula, Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Thad Allen told a news conference.”
