Dairo Antonio Usuga “Otoniel” busted

Dairo Antonio Usuga “Otoniel” leader of the Colombian Clan del Golfo cartel has been busted after more than a decade on the run. He has long been a fixture on the DEA most-wanted list, with a $5 million bounty. He was first indicted in 2009. Indictments in Brooklyn and Miami accused him of importing at least 73 metric tons of cocaine into the US between 2003 and 2014 alone. Intelligence provided by the U.S. led to an operation of more than 500 soldiers and Colombia’s special forces to Úsuga’s jungle hideout, which was protected by eight rings of security.
