    Mexican authorities have arrested a reputed major figure in one of Columbia's largest and most feared drug cartels responsible for nearly half of the cocaine smuggled into the U.S.

    Jamie Maya Duran was arrested Wednesday by agents of Mexico's Attorney General's office in Mexico City and immediately flown to New York, where he is under indictment on drug trafficking and money laundering charges.

    U.S. officials had posted a 5 million dollar reward for his arrest.
