MEXICO CITY - The Mexican Navy said on Sunday it arrested the alleged head of the feared Zetas drug gang in the central city of San Luis Potosi in connection with this month's murder of a U.S. customs agent by a drug gang.

The Navy said in a statement that Marines arrested Sergio "El Toto" Mora on Sunday morning in a raid in the northern city of Saltillo. Mora was to be transported to Mexico City and handed over to the federal prosecutors' office for interrogation.

The statement did not provide further details of Mora's suspected role in the killing.
