There was a rather large CDG-CDN confrontation between Ciudad Mier and Miguel Aleman on the 22nd, and the bodies were found yesterday by the army. All the pictures are from Moros Rap, so naturally they say the dead on the pictures are all CDN.
Yesterday was also the outbreak of the war between CDG and Los Zetas 9 years ago.
With gunfire, SEIDO agents arrested the regional head of the Gulf Cartel (CDG) José Alfredo Cárdenas last night in San Luis Potosí, nephew of the legendary capo of that organization Ociel Cardenas also known as "Mr. Cortés" or " Scorpion". Sicarios in the service of José Alfredo tried to rescue him with bullets but the federals repelled the attack, ending up wounding a girl.
According to police accounts, originally, the federal agents prepared an operation to stop the capo in a ranch known as La Virgen, located in the municipality of Guadalcazar, the operation was aborted because when they arrived at the place no one was there.
José Alfredo was traveling aboard a Tahoe truck with a girl when he was approached by the agents of the Attorney General's Office. The presumed responsible for kidnappings, executions and sale of drugs in the northeast region of the country tried to persuade the police, but could not.
On the way to the facilities of the Delegation of the Attorney General of the Republic, they were hit by hired assassins, who opened fire on the vehicles, without noticing that in one of the vehicles, a girl was present, and she looked like José Alfredo's daughter.
Delinquents and federal agents then staged a confrontation and persecution in the streets of National Anthem and Mariano Jimenez, but finally did not manage to rescue their boss.
According to versions of the FGE, the detainee and his security guards would have considered the arrest unjust, as they were assured that they paid all the police for allowing the nephew of the "Scorpion" to live quietly in San Luis Potosí.
The now detainee traveled constantly to Monterrey and Mexico City, but in the capital of Potosina and some municipalities he had safe houses.
In the morning the detainee was transferred to Mexico City where the criminal proceedings against him will take place.
Hi guys. A bit off-topic here, but maybe this can be useful information. As I've been doing research on old school Gulf Cartel narcos, I've been requesting information from the Mexican government through the Federal Law of Transparency and Access to Government Public Information. In their website, I requested information on the former Gulf Cartel leader José Manuel Garza Rendón. I did this because there are no sources about his trial after he was deported from the U.S. to Mexico in 2009. I'll be doing the same for other narcos too. Email me if you need help doing this or are interested in a certain narco so we can do some digging.
Below is the screenshot of my request that I submitted today. I used an alias and faked my location, but you don't even need to provide such information:
UPDATE: maybe this should be in an independent post so more readers can know this is possible?
It is a response from Metros to AMLO and his call for old school equilibrium.

After El Contador was arrested, I’ve asked around in Matamoros for potential “successors”. The name I’ve heard is Enrique “Kike” Cárdenas Salinas, guy in his mid 30s. Don’t have more info other than this name at the moment, but my guess there is relation to Celia Salinas Aguilar (Osiel’s wife).
