BOGOTA---A years-long manhunt for a ruthless
cocaine warlord who ruled a remote rural fiefdom
with an armed band and generous bribes has ended
with a military raid that killed the man considered
Colombia s second most-wanted criminal.
Thirty-nine-year-old Victor "Megateo" Navarro
long dominated the historically lawless Catatumbo
region that hugs Venezuela. It is where he was killed
Thursday night in a ground and air attack, authorities
Law officials had been fixated on him because of
what he represented: the possible future of organised
crime in Colombia if nearly three-year-old peace

talks between the government and the country s
largest rebel group succeed. In another sense, he was
a throwback to an earlier age of brazen, high-profile
narcos who revelled in public notoriety.
Six previous attempts to capture Navarro had failed
when he slipped away at the last minute.
With a US$5 million bounty on his head and a
2011 drug-trafficking indictment pending in Florida,
Navarro had faced 45 arrest warrants and Colombian
prosecutors said he was suspected in dozens of killings.
He was especially hunted for a 2006 ambush in
which his men killed 17 soldiers and intelligence
agents who had set out from Bogota to capture him
but were betrayed by a double agent, a secret police
detective who abandoned the operation at the last
minute and is now serving a 40-year sentence for
Navarro claimed to lead the last remaining faction
of the Popular Liberation Army, a rebel movement
that disbanded in 1991. But to authorities, he was
nothing more than a major cocaine trafficker, a crim-
inal heavyweight whose muscle and ability to evade
capture derived from the fear he instilled and alliances
he made with gangs of former far-right militiamen
and with the country s two largest rebel groups.
A thickly built man of medium height, Navarro
was notorious for his garish jewelry. He wore a big
gold ring on each hand --- one encrusted with dia-
monds, the other emeralds.
It was not immediately clear how Navarro and the
four others who died with him were killed, though
police said Thursday s raid included an air attack and
Defense Minister Luis Carlos Villegas did not pro-
vide details of what he called "one of the most ingen-
ious undercover operations in Colombia in recent
Born into a peasant family, Navarro took to crime
in the late 1990s after paramilitaries killed his mother
and a sister, according to Colombian investigators.
He projected a Robin Hood image, sharing some
wealth with local people while putting numerous
police, soldiers and local politicians on his payroll,
US and Colombian officials say. Those officials said
Navarro also gained a reputation for personally tor-
turing and killing infiltrators. (AP)
