Alleged NJ drug lord arrested in Colombia.

ELIZABETH, New Jersey - Colombian authorities have arrested a former Union County,New Jersey man suspected of leading of a notorious heroin-smuggling ring.

Alejandro Cleves was arrested last week in Medellin after nearly three years on the run.

Cleves had lived in Union County,New Jersey from the late 1980s until 2003, when he fled to South America to avoid drug charges.

Authorities say he continued to supply about three to six kilos of heroin per week to the eastern U.S.

An investigation in 2005 by the Union County, New Jersey Prosecutor's Office led to 21 indictments, among them State Police Trooper Moises Hernandez, who pleaded guilty in 2006 to aiding the drug ring.
