Most-wanted drug lord found hiding in the trunk of a car

Police in Rio de Janeiro have captured a key figure in a drug gang.

Antonio Bonfim Lopes, known as "Nem," was caught at a police checkpoint hiding in the trunk of a car as he attempted to flee flee the Rocinha slum, according to Reuters.

Lopes is wanted on charges of drug trafficking, murder, kidnapping and money laundering, and his arrest is a blow to the "Friends of Friends" drug gang that controls Rocinha.
