José Lisandro Lascarro, also known as Pastor Alape or Félix Antonio Muñoz Lascarro (born June 4, 1959 in Puerto Berrío, Antioquia), is a former Colombian guerrilla leader, member of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and was part of their high command known as the Estado Mayor Central which had some 30 to 60 members.
According to the United States government, Muñoz-Lascarro oversaw production of the Magdalena Medio Bloc’s cocaine supply, participated in setting and implementing the FARC’s cocaine policies directing and controlling the production, manufacture, and distribution of hundreds of tons of cocaine to the United States and the world; the "taxation" of the drug trade in Colombia to raise funds for the FARC; and the murder of hundreds of people who violated or interfered with the FARC’s cocaine policies. Muñoz-Lascarro was responsible for providing the Secretariat and Estado Mayor with billions of pesos each month. He has ordered acts of violence (bombings and murders), including orders to kill farmers who sold cocaine paste to the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia (AUC). The U.S. Department of State is offering a reward of up to US$2.5 million for information leading to his arrest and/or conviction. On September 27, 2010 the FARC said Mono Jojoy had been replaced on its ruling secretariat by Muñoz-Lascarro.
