They always (mostly) find their man

The long, patient arm of the law prevailed.

Chicago drug suspect is nabbed

FBI agents in San Antonio have arrested a man wanted since 2003 on federal drug charges in the Chicago area.

Daniel Mata, 29, was taken into custody around 6:30 p.m. Monday in the 7100 block of Sandy Point Drive, according to FBI spokesman Erik Vasys.
Mata was living at the home with his wife and two children. Two firearms were recovered, Vasys said.

Mata, a convicted felon, was wanted in Montgomery, Ill., in connection with a drug operation in which he was suspected of receiving marijuana through Federal Express deliveries from Harlingen, Vasys said.

He said Mata's file shows he is a reported member of the Latin Kings gang in Illinois. Mata is awaiting extradition
