Óscar Omar Treviño Morales[1] (born January 26, 1974) is the current leader of the Mexican criminal organization known as Los Zetas and one of Mexico's most-wanted drug lords. He is the brother of former drug lord Miguel Treviño Morales.[2][3] The authorities believe he is the successor of his brother, who was arrested on July 15, 2013.[4]

Omar is allegedly responsible for several abductions and murders committed in Nuevo Laredo between 2005 and 2006 and the supply source for multi-kilogram loads of cocaine smuggled from Mexico to the United States.[5]

He is charged in a 2008 federal indictment in the U.S. District of Columbia, and the U.S. Department of State is currently offering a reward of up to $5 million USD for information leading to his arrest and/or conviction.[6][7] On 24 March 2010, the United States Department of the Treasury sanctioned him under the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act (sometimes referred to simply as the "Kingpin Act"), for his involvement in drug trafficking along with fifty-three other international criminals and ten foreign entities.[8] The act prohibited U.S. citizens and companies from doing any kind of business activity with him, and virtually froze all his assets in the U.S.[9]
