The reputed head of a major international cocaine-trafficking ring, who is a prime suspect in the murder of a U.S. drug agent in Mexico, has been arrested by police in Cartagena, Colombia, the Drug Enforcement Administration said in Washington. DEA official John D. Lawn said Colombia acted on U.S.-supplied information in arresting Juan Ramon Matta-Ballesteros, a Honduran. With the latest arrest, three of the four alleged drug traffickers suspected of a role in the murder of DEA agent Enrique S. Camarena in Guadalajara last March are now in custody.
