Gunmen Rescue Gulf Cartel Boss 'Calamardo/Metro 27' From Detention Facility in Reynosa, Tamaulipas

"MX" and "Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat; TY to "El Zacatecas" and "Anonymous"


Tamaulipas state authorities confirmed just a few hours ago that Gulf Cartel faction boss José Alfredo Hernández Campos AKA "El Calamardo" (The Squidward) and/or "Metro 27" was broken out of custody by cartel members.

The suspect was apprehended on Monday by the Special Forces Group (GOPES), the elite unit of the Tamaulipas State Police, and was scheduled for a court hearing on Wednesday.

According to police sources and eye-witnesses, Hernandez Campos was in custody at the Tamaulipas State Police detention center in Reynosa when armed men wearing military garments went in to release him. The gunmen arrived in at least five (5) vehicles and threatened the officers at gunpoint to release him.

It is believed that the Gulf Cartel carefully planned the operation. When gunmen went to the detention center to release him, others carried out a series of road blockades across Reynosa and dumped tire spikes in several neighborhoods simultaneously. This prevented security forces from swiftly responding to the incident and distracted them.

Local media outlets said that cartel boss Cesar Morfin Morfin AKA "El Primito" reportedly offered up to MXN$1 million (approximately US$50,000) to anyone who helped release Hernandez Campos.

Profile

Hernandez Campos is the alleged plaza boss of Diaz Ordaz, a municipality that borders Reynosa on the west. This border town is across the Texas communities of Los Ebanos and La Grulla.

He is wanted for multiple charges, including drug trafficking, human smuggling, kidnapping, attacking law enforcement officers, and taking down surveillance cameras. Citizen journalists stated that El Calamardo lives in Reynosa and reports to cartel boss El Primito, who heads the entire Metros faction in La Frontera Chica border region.

    1. Primito acted quickly and this gambit turned out in his favor. He cannot afford to lose a plaza boss right now.

      Calamardo is a heavyhitter in Reynosa, hangs around in Las Cumbres and Las Fuentes. I believe Calamardo works closer with Primito’s brother Alvaro AKA R8.

    2. El primito most likely ordered the death el choco the most powerful man in the metros faction. He will betray anyone that cld challenge him. I doubt he wld pay a million dollars to anyone for anything.

    3. @mx hi, im just curious, why does it say he escaped from prison? He was at the fiscalía general de justicia when he was rescued.

    4. 3:29 - I’ve changed to “detention facility” since I do think you bring up a good point. My understanding was “prison” can be anywhere where a person is held legally while awaiting trial or for punishment for their crimes, etc. I hope it reads better now.

    6. El primito was toros-m42 knee padder and learn a lot from him .
      Crazy how this dude from Jalisco is coming up and putting these dudes who are natives of Tamaulipas to shame !

      Primito/m300 might have been with CDG since 2008 but his name started coming up in 2017/18

    7. @9:39 El Primito de Camargo has been mentioned since the CDG-ZETAS war if I'm not mistaken. Maybe the Z's were referring to Bartolo El Primo. The power he has is being from an area that produces and has ton quantity of material and being trusted to move it. Some of those POS comandantes are unreliable and common criminals that don't generate revenue, local strongmen that will betray and die in their little area of operation.

    8. @1:46 when you get bought out of your operation because you sold it, you don't try to undermine the person who gave you good money. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes

  5. Cartels are well organized. Prison break, had to be a inside payoff. Amlo hugs do work. Keep hugging criminals

    2. @ 9:14. Yup. Those fools love fighting each other. They don’t trust each other what so ever and it’s been like that ever since osiel aka “el mata amigos” even M3 was killed by his own people who were “loyal” to him.

    3. If these Einsteins could use there heads instead of their egos/feelings then they would figure out that there is way more strength in unity than in personal interest. They could help each other make money and connections which in itself brings more structure, organization, and revenue. If they're bring in more revenue then there's more to go around and more to use for (for lack of a better term) their business purposes. At the end of the day it would be better for everyone, including the citizens. That would bring peace to there areas of operations and less of a need for them to extort, kidnap, or cobro de piso. At least that's my humble opinion. And to those who say "kill all cartel members" or "you're condoning this kind of stuff", the first one is "It's never going to happen" and "No I'm not". Let's face it, these cartels aren't going anywhere anytime soon. The splintering of the cartels is causing more vilonce. And all the while the average Joe and Jane is suffering. Children are being traumatized and desensitized like crazy, and those are not good things for them or the future. Maybe I'm wrong. If anyone could come up with a realistic alternative that actually has a chance of working, I'd love to hear it.

    4. Great point. There are absolutely NO easy solutions to this mess and as you write, it is brutal and tragic. Every scenario is a mess, just some less than others

  7. The same officers who arrested him were also the ones who saved him

    2. Wtff you mean he was released after a bribe lol the carttel is powerful but don’t forget you can never win against the gov. Looks at Pablo Escobar. The power of the cartells is an illusion to hide the fact that the politicians are really in charge.

  10. So much for a guy.. is he that importan/powerful enough not to lose??? If I was an officer who guards him, I will kill him instantly when his henchmens attempt to rescue him. I am sure he will be killed or attested shortly. I'm still confused on hid important role to bet rescue attempt by his men's that too from so called elite units of government. Looks like government army/police should take training from cartels..
