"Don Mario" captured

Amongst the drug trafficking gangs of Colombia, there is a sort of division of labor: Some handle transhipment; some build the containers and vessels like the infamous semi-submarines; some like the FARC control the growers and the processors out in the countryside; some provide the muscle for the intercine wars...

Daniel Rendon, a.k.a. "Don Mario", is one of the latter type. His organization is reputed to provide armed hit-men to the highest bidder. Well, maybe not any more: A Special Element of the Colombian Police have successfully apprehended him.

Now let's see if he will sing about how he got all those guns from the FARC, and maybe other places as well.
