Mario Alberto Cárdenas Medina, alias "El Beto", Arrested

Itzli
As reported by Milenio:

Elements of the Federal Ministerial Police of the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) captured in Naucalpan, México state, Mario "C", El Betito, nephew of the drug lord Osiel Cárdenas Guillén, identified as one of the generators of violence in Tamaulipas. El Betito is the son of Mario Cárdenas Guillén, El M1, founder of the faction of Los Metros, whom recently was added an order of detention with the end of extradition by petition of the government of the United STates of America and, a few day ago, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for organized crime, with functions of administration, supervision, or direction. The announcement of his capture was realized in coordination with the General of Investigation Methods of the FGR, Felipe de Jesús Gallo, who signaled that El Betito had been detained in 2009 and a judge let him go free after declaring his detention illegal.

Nice find!

I remember you mentioned in the original Gulf Cartel forum that El Beto was released sometime near 2015. This information was never officially confirmed until now but rumors were strong. Great job following up on this one and tying this case up.

Lots of Gulf Cartel kingpins being arrested outside of Tamaulipas nowadays. This one, El Contador, and La Perra, to name a few from this year.

Not the founder of los Metros though.

Does someone like this have the financial means to just hide and live a fancy low key life after getting out of jail?
