      Major drug trafficker Edgar "La Barbie" Valdez is presented during a news conference at the federal police center in Mexico City

      It has been reported that the drug kingpin, Edgar Valdez-Villarreal, also known as La Barbie, has been captured by the Mexican police.

      Due to drug laundering and smuggling activities across Mexico, La Barbie was wanted in Laredo and Mexico.

      A Laredo native, La Barbie got captured on Monday after a shootout with Mexican authorities.

      Although, the exact location of his arrest is unknown, according to some sources, La Barbie got captured in Mexico.

      The former United High School football star, La Barbie was considered as a hero by many in Mexico. For information leading to capture La Barbie, U.S. authorities had offered a prize money of $2 million.

      During Atlanta trial, in 2008, powerful evidences were shown against La Barbie to prove him as a major person in moving kilos of cocaine through Laredo.

      Along with drug smuggling, La Barbie was also accused of murder and money laundering.
