In May 2023, the children of José Alfredo Cárdenas Martínez, also known as El Contador, were arrested. El Contador is believed to be the leader of the Gulf Cartel, and his nephew, Osiel Cárdenas Guillén, was also arrested. However, in January 2024, a judge ordered the release of at least one of El Contador’s children, Axel Alfredo.
Axel Alfredo was arrested in Tamaulipas on May 9, as reported by Infobae México. Two days later, both Axel Alfredo and his brother were confirmed to be in custody. However, records show that Axel Alfredo was released on January 20, according to journalist René Cruz in MVS.
The Ministry of Security and Citizen Protection stated that Axel Alfredo and his brother, Alen Alexis, were linked to a criminal organization involved in drug trafficking and human trafficking in Tamaulipas. This organization is believed to be a part of the Gulf Cartel.
Recently, Axel Alfredo was released along with a man named Jesús Roberto “C”, who is allegedly a member of the same criminal group. The situation is still developing, and more information is expected to come to light.
It is important to note that the Gulf Cartel has several criminal cells, including ‘Los Metros’ and ‘Los Ciclones’. These cells are known for their involvement in various illegal activities, including drug trafficking and violence.
The release of Axel Alfredo and the ongoing developments in this case highlight the complex and ever-changing nature of organized crime in Mexico. The Gulf Cartel and its affiliated groups continue to pose a significant challenge to law enforcement and security forces in the region. As the situation unfolds, it will be crucial for authorities to remain vigilant and proactive in addressing the ongoing threat posed by these criminal organizations.
