MEXICO CITY — Mexican law enforcement arrested a co-founder of the Los Zetas drug cartel in the brutal highway-ambush killing of an unarmed U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent in February, Mexico's Public Security Ministry announced Monday.

Jesus Enrique Rejon Aguilar, 35, described as "one of the founders of the Zetas criminal organization" and the gang's third most powerful leader, was taken into custody Sunday in the Mexico City suburb of Atizapan, "without firing a shot."
