Suspected drug smuggler arrested in VenezuelaApril 21, 2013 @ 4:05 pm
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - Venezuela's top security official says authorities have caught an alleged drug trafficker wanted in neighboring Colombia on drug smuggling, kidnapping and extortion charges.
Justice Minister Nestor Reverol says soldiers and officials from Venezuela's National Anti-Drug Office detained Rigoberto Castellon on Sunday in the western state of Falcon.
Colombian and U.S. officials say the majority of cocaine smuggling flights bound for Mexico and Central America pass through Venezuela.
Reverol has repeatedly said Venezuelan authorities are doing everything possible to stem the flow of cocaine through the country.
