The FBI says an alleged member of the MS-13 gang charged with RICO conspiracy and conspiracy to distribute cocaine was taken into custody Thursday.
Efrain Vasquez-Yanez, 34, was indicted with 55 other alleged-members of the gang for activities including murder, attempted murder and drug trafficking in January.
He was arrested around 8:30 a.m. in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, after the FBI learned he had a connection in that area.
Officials previously searched the Boston area.
Officials believe he has a "homeboy" status with the MS-13 gang, which is obtained by killing someone or causing severe bodily injury in name of the gang.
A reward of up to $20,000 was offered for information leading to his arrest, but no reward money will be paid out.
