According to FoxNews.com, the DEA and U.S. Coast Guard have teamed up to successfully nab an alleged drug lord, Javier Arellano-Felix, whose gang is allegedly responsible for up to 20 murders within the USA and Mexico. He was nabbed while aboard a fishing boat while in offshore waters off of the coast of Mexico, and the information leading to the arrest was from a tip.

I have to hand it to both the DEA and the US Coast Guard for working so well together as to arrange what apparently amounted to a boarding/raid of that fishing vessel at sea. I have to also hand it to whichever agency it was that developed the informant who supplied the tip. This is what is called excellent law enforcement work, and these efforts are sure to put at least a crimp in the activities of the Arellano-Felix gang. Federal law enforcement personnel like these risk their lives on a daily basis to help keep our country free of criminals and the effect of their illegal activities. My hat goes off to the DEA and US Coast Guard for a job well done.
