Video Shows Colombian Commandos Capturing Drug Kingpin in Jungle Firefight

Colombian special forces released a video from a helmet cam showing their capture one of the country’s top 20 most wanted men, Édgar Gutierrez Arenas, also known as “Thomas.”

The April 22 video is short, and comes in towards the end of what was likely a much longer firefight. It shows the commandos firing rifles into the jungle foliage. They then charge at and surround the shirtless Thomas, who surrenders as a helicopter swoops in overhead.
