Tamaulipas News and CDG Information

Borderland Beat
The following information was compiled by Borderland Beat forum poster Itzli.  We have many Tamaulipas readers who request Tamps material so I thought this would be appreciated and I am sure corrections and additions will be sent in. 

Unfortunately, there has been a narco news blackout in Tamps since 2010, typically sources on the ground and social media have been used to glean information of situations, events that occurred and SDR’s.  Unfortunately, social media is also a breeding ground for baseless rumors that spread and become “fact”.  It is an extremely difficult situation for reporting, in an explosive region. 

Tamaulipas Most Wanted List 
LOS ZETAS
Omar  Treviño Morales "Z42" (is headquartered in Coahuila)
Sergio Ricardo Basurto Peña " El Grande” (Nuevo Laredo)

"El Orejón/Ciclón 7"- Matamoros

By Itzli April 7th
I begin by providing a brief recap and summary of information found elsewhere in other threads. The general consensus late last year was that the Gulf Cartel was divided into three major factions. Based out of Reynosa, the Metro faction was headed by X20. Based out of Matamoros, the Ciclones faction was headed by Homero Cardenas. Based out of Tampico, the CDG Sur faction was headed by K14. There was tension and outright conflict between Los Metros and Los Ciclones, while CDG Sur was aligned with Matamoros.

Within Los Metros there were conflicts between competing cells. X20 conducted a purge of those aligned with El Gringo, though X20 himself would later be arrested. Afterwards, conflict was predicted as a number of individuals seemed poised to compete for the leadership, yet things seemed to remain calm. Last week saw the arrest of El Simple, who was a member of Los Metros, though his power within the group is debated.

Within Los Ciclones, it was speculated that Homero was gradually consolidating power within the Gulf Cartel as a whole. Yet recent reports indicate that he suffered a medical setback last November which led to him being hospitalized. Rumors of his death have surfaced, as well as reports that Los Ciclones have been investigating if Los Metros had a hand in it.

Within CDG Sur, reports of extortion and kidnappings increased in Tampico and K14 was directly blamed. He would eventually be arrested as a result of betrayal by his own faction. A number of potential replacements were heard, but it appeared El Wuasa, a native of Matamoros took over, only to be executed by his followers and members of his family were killed and kidnapped at his funeral.

The Emerging Conflict
Over the weekend, a number of shootouts and killings occurred in Tampico. On the surface it would appear that it is the fallout of the death of El Wuasa as members seek revenge or to gain power. Yet there seems to be more going on and it appears that those acting in the conflict are pawns of an increasing conflict between Los Metros and Los Ciclones.

As best I can piece together based upon information on Valor por Tamaulipas, the struggle in Tampico on the surface the axis of power is shifting from the urban zone to the rural zone.

In Tampico there is a group called Los Jimmy, founded by Comandante Jimmy who was executed or killed in Reynosa some time ago. Members of the group have a call sign using the initial J followed by a number. After Comandante Jimmy's death, El Chive, also known as J2, took control of the group along with his brother, El Tony, also known as J3.
They have been in charge of stealing from pipelines in the area and have gained power since the fall of K14 and the death of La Wuasa. They have put in place another member of their group; some say El Guason, also known as J16, has been put in charge of Tampico, while others say it is El Chema. Regardless, it seems that  Los Jimmy's are receiving support from Comandante Cortez, reportedly a high ranking member of Los Metros. Other CDG Sur groups are aligned with Los Jimmy: Grupo Escorpion of Lazaro and Grupo Michelin of "Gordo May".

Los Jimmy are fighting to wipe out Arturo "El Sheyla/Sheila" Garza Treviño, provoking conflicts in Tampico and Ciudad Madero. "El Sheyla" was trained in Sinaloa by former soldiers and had previously worked under "El Coss" and "El Sierra" before working under "K14". He has been in charge of the war, alongside Los K, against Los Zetas in Tampico since 2010 and was the creator of Grupo Dragon. He currently is backed by Los Ciclones of Matamoros.

It appears that Tampico is now a proxy fight between Los Metros and Los Ciclones.

Most wanted list is from 24 Horas

  1. In a nutshell, what was written in this article is exactly what is going in Tamaulipas between the rival factions of CDG. If you it could still call it Cartel del Golfo. It's more like the cartel del los
    Ciclones or CDLM.

  5. Now that Z40 is locked up, there's more talk about Z42. He's a bad, bad guy, just like his brother. I think he's a sadist with no limits just like his brother. We haven't heard the last from this guy.

  9. Cmdte wuasa was a good man. I knew his familia, was really tite wid one of his cousins 'el chispa' (not zeta chispa). He didn't deserve to go down like dat, especially after all da work he had put in for cdg, and to wipe out his whole familia at his funeral was a fucking horrible thang to do. Alot of backstabbing going on within cdg at da moment, can't trust no one

    1. That's what happened after the cds truce. Mixed feelings but most of all panocheo between fractions of cdg. The only one in my point of view that had all needed to be the 1 was M3. Reynosa lost respect of matamoros due to leadership failure in matamoros. When the z cdg split reynosa was the one who acted and fought mainly Miguel Aleman to reynosa financially as well. The bs in tampico is who is going to keep the route in other words the $ the drugs. In what did cdg cds alliance help us nothing cause when this happened the michoacanos where the ones who came to fight no sinaloa. In my opinion they played CDG with some old but great strategies called divide and conquer. .....

  21. I saw a documentary on Juan Raul Garza. That he was the first Kingpin to get the death sentence. Does anybody know for what cartel he worked for?

    Chivis can you do an article on him and let us readers know more about him

  22. I don't understand why these two factions are fighting over the Zetas leftovers. Yes the Tamaulipas state is a valuable and stragetic drug trafficking corridor but the reality is that the Zetas will just come and take it if and when they want it. My guess is that the Zetas have discussed a truce with one of those factions and will sit this one out. That way they can focus mainly on pushing the remnants of the CDS out of Chihuahua.

  25. El M14 controls Frontera Chica . From Diaz Ordaz to now Miguel Aleman who's leader was ambushed by M14. The zetas have set up to take control of Miguel aleman but M14 and his metros are controlling all areas of entrance. It could be a battle brewing.

    "X20 was never patron of Reynosa much less CDG"
