Post Mexico nabs trafficker, money-laundering suspects (AP)

AP - Mexican authorities say they have detained a large-scale drug trafficker and also broken up a ring that allegedly laundered around $37 million for a drug cartel.

The army says it detained Oscar Orlando Nava Valencia and nine alleged associates in the western state of Jalisco. Nava Valencia is allegedly a leader of the "Valencia" drug gang.

The federal Attorney General's Office, meanwhile, says it detained two men in the central city of Cuernavaca who moved as much as 491 million pesos (about $37 million) through bank accounts for the Zetas drug gang, linked to the Gulf cartel.

Prosecutors seized 37 bank accounts and four properties in the case.

Both actions were announced Friday.
