José Alfredo Cárdenas Martínez, alias 'El Contador', and nephew of the ex-leader of the Gulf Cartel, Osiel Cárdenas Guillén, was arrested early Monday morning in the city of Matamoros, Tamaulipas, by elements of the Secretariat of the Navy (Semar).

Cardenas Martinez was one of the main generators of violence in the northern state of Tamaulipas, in addition to leading a fraction of the Gulf Cartel calling itself 'Los Cyclones' and "Los Escorpiones" among others.

He was seeking control of the Reynosa and Riberena area.

It is expected that in the next few hours he will arrive at the facilities of the Special Prosecutor's Office for the Investigation of Organized Crime (Seido) , to render his ministerial declaration and identification process.

Some Mexican journalists on quaaluds are reporting Jose Alfredo Cardenas as being the same as Sr Cortez, but we know better of course.

Jose Alfredo Cardenas Martinez is the son of Augustin Cardenas Guillen

This is what happens when you don’t align with the gov. Panilo fakes his death so his cousin won’t feel the heat as he is running for mayor of Reynosa. The gov wants to have a “pax mafiosa” where all the cartels operate without making noise ( extortion and kidnapping)

Matamoros faction did not want to work with the government and wanted to maintain making money via kidnapping.

Let this be known to the movers. There is a new boss of Tamaulipas and his name Cabeza de Vaca. Aliñasen or serán quitados. Plain and simple.

¡tRuCHAS!

Released on a technicality? From what I'm reading, the arrest documents stated that he was arrested on a public road and his wife turned over video showing he was arrested inside his house. Therefore, the judge ordered he be released because of a violation of due process.

That's why I love Mexico, for the judiciary system and speedy Gonzales...It doesn't matter if you're a child molester, a serial killer or a rapist, your rights will always be respected in a court of law, especially if you're a wealthy person and you have some connections. The justice is really blind there. Viva Mexico!

By lies of the Navy judge releases "El Contador", nephew of Osiel Cárdenas

MEXICO CITY (AP) .- A Control judge ordered the release of the alleged drug cartel of the Gulf Cartel, Alfredo Cárdenas Martínez, El Contador , because the Secretary of the Navy (Semar) and the Federal Public Ministry (MP) lied about the circumstances of his detention last Tuesday, 20th, in Matamoros, Tamaulipas.

La Semar said that El Contador , accused of coordinating drug trafficking to the United States, was captured when he was fleeing an operation implemented by that unit in the San Francisco subdivision of that border city with Texas.

The same was said by the Attorney General's Office (PGR) when it was brought before the courts and placed at the disposition of the Specialized District Judge in the New Criminal Justice System, in the Altiplano penitentiary, State of Mexico.

However, the judge declared illegal detention in criminal case 59/2018, because the defense showed that Cárdenas Martínez was at home when he was arrested, and not in a street pursuit by the Navy.

At the initial hearing, the Federal MP agent, head of the Tetragésima Investigating Agency of the Special Investigation Unit in Crimes against Health, of the Deputy Attorney General for Organized Crime Investigation (SEIDO), asked the judge to declare the capture legal .

According to SEIDO, Cárdenas Martínez was apprehended when he was riding in a Tahoe truck at speeding in the streets of Matamoros. The official account stated that it was 1:40 in the morning and that, when approaching the truck, the sailors realized that he had two firearms in the passenger seat. Then they did a thorough review and found more weapons and drugs, the federal MP said.

The version of the Navy was that, upon receiving a citizen complaint, naval personnel went to the area denounced and upon arriving at the reported address, a group of people who noticed the presence of the sailors fled to different directions. However, he maintained that he managed to arrest José Alfredo "N", who allegedly was "leader of a criminal organization in the region."

However, the detainee's defense presented the judge with video surveillance cameras from the house of Cárdenas Martínez. In the images it is seen when the Navy troops arrive, disconnect cameras, enter the building and take it out.

It is also seen how the sailors take the Tahoe truck that was parked in the house of El Contador , who is nephew of the former Gulf Cartel Osiel Cárdenas, now imprisoned in the United States.

Given these evidences, the judge decreed illegal capture in this indictment.

But it does not negate previous charges or does it?  Besides this incident, is he wanted in Mexico?

Everything's a bit confusing right now. He was not on Mexico's most wanted list but apparently has been sought by the United States for extradition previously. Menytimes posted that his understanding is that they won't be able to use the same charges on this failed arrest as it would be akin to double jeopardy. His current status is debatable, while the judge ordered him released, some are reporting he is still imprisoned while they are checking if he can be held for other charges. However, there are some rumors that he has been released.
