Venezuelan cartel Norte del Valle

The Norte del Valle Cartel was a drug cartel that operated principally in the north of the Valle del Cauca department of a Colombia from where the close connection with the FARC exists. It rose to prominence during the second half of the 1990s, after the Cali Cartel and the Medellín Cartel fragmented, and it was known as one of the most powerful organizations in the illegal drugs trade. The drug cartel was led by Diego Montoya until his capture in 2007 by the authorities of the United States. Current leader is unknown. After Montoya´s capture and several other high commanders capture the remnants of the cartel moved all its activities into neighborhooding Venezuela.

According to a U.S. Government indictment, between 2008 and 2011, the Norte del Valle cartel exported more than 800 tons of cocaine worth of $13 billion from Colombia to Mexico and ultimately to the United States for resale.
