Add international drug dealer to a resume that already includes bus driver and dictator. Nicolas Maduro, the ruinously corrupt and inept left-wing leader of Venezuela was indicted Thursday on some extraordinarily serious charges.

“Nicolas Maduro effectively converted Venezuela into a criminal enterprise at the service of drug traffickers and terrorist groups as he and his allies stole billions from the South American country, the Justice Department charged in several indictments made public Thursday against the embattled socialist leader and his inner circle,” the Associated Press reported.

Somehow we doubt Mr. Maduro will be surrendering himself voluntarily. And so the United States has offered a reward of up to $15 million for bringing him to justice. (John Walsh was never able to offer such generosity on “America’s Most Wanted.”)

Get cracking, would-be bounty hunters.
