The Colombian Norte del Valle Cartel (NVC) is responsible for exporting more than 500 metric tons of cocaine from Colombia to Mexico, and ultimately to the United States since 1990. The NVC regularly uses violence and brutality to further its goals, including the murder of rivals, individuals who failed to pay for cocaine and associates who were believed to be working as informants. When Luis Hernando Gomez-Bustamante, an NVC leader was captured, four of his key lieutenants stepped in to continue the flow of drugs to the United States.

Jhonny Cano Correa was chief of security for Bustamante’s organization and was responsible for ensuring the security of cocaine processing laboratories. Cano is allegedly responsible for numerous murders, and was a major trafficker in his own right. He is under indictment in the Eastern District of New York, charged with narcotics trafficking conspiracy, international narcotics trafficking conspiracy, money laundering conspiracy and substantive narcotics trafficking and money laundering charges.

On October 29, 2005, he was captured by Colombian forces in a farmhouse just south of Caucasia, Antioquia, Colombia
