Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos went on national television Tuesday night to announce the capture of Barrera in the western Venezuelan city of San Cristobal. Colombian authorities had posted a $2.5-million reward for information leading to his arrest.

The L.A. County Sheriff's Department is seeking to fire a narcotics deputy charged with lying about finding drugs after detaining a couple, whom the county will pay $550,000 to settle a false-arrest lawsuit, officials said. Francisco Enriquez has pleaded not guilty to one count of perjury in a probable cause declaration and one count of filing a false report in connection with the October 2009 arrests of Tatiana Lopez and Miguel Amarillas. Enriquez is due in court July 3 for a preliminary hearing to decide whether there is enough evidence for a trial on the charges.
