Mexican federal police have arrested the man accused of leading the enforcement unit of the Juarez drug cartel.

They say Marco Guzman, nicknamed “El Brad Pitt”, was taken into custody on Wednesday in Chihuahua state.

Police say he was involved in a 2010 car bomb attack that killed a police official and two of his bodyguards. They say he also took part in a killing that was recorded and posted on the Internet.

Authorities had offered a reward for information leading to Guzman's arrest.
