Alfredo Alemán Narváez, leader of CDG Los Alemánes, Arrested in Nuevo Leon

"HEARST" for Borderland Beat 

Alfredo Alemán Narváez, alias “El Alemán”, was arrested at a home in Monterrey, Nuevo León.


He is believed to be the leader of Los Alemanes, a major group within the cartel landscape of the state of San Luis Potosi, who are primarily contested by the Cartel Jalisco Nuevo Generación subgroup Operativa Bélica.



The Arrest 


At approximately 9:00 pm on September 22, 2022, a group of Army (SEDENA) and National Guard soldiers raided a home located in the northwestern side of the major city of Monterrey, in the state of Nuevo León. 



Inside the home, they arrested Cártel del Golfo (CDG) leader Alfredo Alemán Narváez, alias “El Alemán”, while he was hosting a horse race watching party, which was attended by his friends and family. 


The house was situated in the Nuvol sector of the housing subdivision Montenova, a luxurious gated community. 



The raid appears to have been planned, based on intelligence gathered by the state Attorney General’s Office (FGE). Newspaper El Norte writes that “Neighbors of the sector said that they did not hear any gunshots, so the operation is believed to have been carried out in a surprise and stealthy manner, shortly before 21:00 hours.”



These same neighbors told the newspaper that during the raid, they were told by soldiers “to go into the houses, to take shelter, especially in the back rooms. 



The FGE press release on the arrest is scant on details, confirming only that Alemán had been arrested but no information on if there were any other detainees or if anything such as drugs or weapons were seized. No booking photos of El Alemán have been released as of yet. 





Very Brief Overview of Los Alemán History 


Los Alemánes, a group led by El Alemán,  began as a CDG group but later split with the CDG and famously waged war against them. They are sometimes referred to as a Zetas group in media reports however the group itself seems to self-identify more as a CDG group. 


In August 2020, Los Alemanes released a video in which they delivered a message on behalf of themselves and Los Zetas splinter group Old School Zetas (Zeta Vieja Escuela) addressed to José Guadalupe Castillo Celestino, director of the Ministerial Police, saying he had broken the truce he had with them.



In a November 2020 video, they stated that they were at the service of the CDG - Matamoros Los Espartanos faction leader Evaristo Cruz Sanchez, alias “El Vaquero”. For a full explanation of Los Espartanos, please see this previous post



So, as of most recently, it appears they work closest with ZVE, who despite the name, are currently considered to be a CDG subgroup. They mainly operate in San Luis Potosi but also have some presence in the state of Zacatecas.




Recent Happenings with Los Alemans


In 2022, Los Alemánes were most often mentioned in cartel news when the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion subgroup Operativa Bélica would name drop and threaten them in messages in San Luis Potosi. 


For example, in February 2022, Operativa Bélica, or the Bloodthirsty Operatives, left a banner in the city of San Luis Potosi, in the state of the same name. The banner names El Alemán (or “Alfredo Alemán”) and Luis Alemán.



The banner read, as translated by Sol Prendido:

This message goes out to all the independent traffickers in the capital. Along with the distributors of drugs who sell for Alfredo Aleman. Just so that you’re all aware the purge has begun in the Progresso neighborhood, and it’s surroundings. For all those who choose not to fall into formation with us. Your fate will be the same as with this dumb ass. 


Luis Aleman, where’s all that bravery of yours? We’ve already seen that you don’t have anything under control here. And that you fucking homos don’t even take care of your personnel. Therefore, brace yourselves because we’re coming after everyone left over. We already have everyone located. With an advance warning there is no betrayal. We’re coming for this plaza. 


Sincerely, 

The O.B.

Then in June 2022, Operativa Bélica released a video message (which is translated in full here) in which they interrogated a Alemánes  member. He confesses to being involved in “drug sales, distribution, fee collections, and kidnappings” in the cities of Seoldad de Graciano Sanchez and San Luis Potosí. 



He then describes how he and his brother, another Alemánes member, would smuggle in cocaine, marijuana, crystal meth, and beer kegs to La Pila prison which would be sold for profit to the prisoners inside. He alleges the prison's warden and deputy director were on the payroll of El Alemáne and they were personally involved in the smuggling itself. 


The Operativa Bélica interrogators then end the video by addressing the camera directly and saying:


“For all the citizens of San Luis Potosí. We are the Operativa Bélica cell from the Jalisco New Generation Cartel. And we want to let you know that we’re purging the plaza of all these scumbags from the Los Alemanes Cartel and Golfos (Cartel del Golfo). Everyone already knows that we don't charge fee collections, nor do we extort, much less do we kidnap. We're just drug traffickers. And little by little we’re going to get rid of all this gang of scumbags. We’re going after all those who support them.”






Some Interesting Information About El Alemán 


This is not the first time that El Alemán has been arrested. He was arrested back in November 2011, while he was at a horse race. People allege he was drunk at the time of his arrest.



There are videos on Youtube of a man alleged to be El Aleman speaking for hours at addiction recovery meetings.


In the videos, the man can be seen erratically hosting an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, giving a speech about the role drugs played in his own life. 



At about 02:50 in the video, linked here, he says, as translated by Sol Prendido: 

"I thought about killing myself, I actually wanted to kill myself while high on drugs. I struggled for eight years, trying to leave drugs behind but I couldn’t.

 

I went through the most beautiful moments of my life, where I could have left it [drugs] all behind but I didn’t.


And then, I went through a second phase of my life, where I wanted to leave it [drugs] all behind but I couldn’t.


And then, I jumped up to the third and fourth dimension, where I reached a level of craziness. I was at that stage in my life where I just wanted to die.


We reach that fucking moment where, the fucking alcoholic or the drug addict, he fucking loses himself -son of a fucking bitch- and you cross that fucking barrier where you say to yourself 'You son of a bitch, you no longer know what the fuck you're doing.’ Or where the obsession overpowers you.

 

At that moment, you don't even know what obsession is - you no longer have any power over yourself. I spent four long years getting high, every fucking day.

 

I don't know how the fuck I would go through a thousand pesos - my goal was to spend a thousand pesos a day on drugs."

    4. Another dumbass question. First off dont use common sense to figure out why mexican disorganized groups do certain shit. In the usa a fucking corrido can be use against you in a court of law you dont want some guy writing about your criminal exploits. But in mexico you want a narco balled like all the other big shots. Aleman is his last name he named his group los alemanes. They have to name their groups something.

  6. Thanks Hearst. You provide a lot of clarity for those of us who can't follow the narco news on a daily basis. After the fragmentation of the cartels it is difficult to keep up with who is who and who is aligned with who. I was thinking that Aleman was independent and associated with the Old School Zetas. If you say that Aleman is associated with the Matamoros faction of CDG then it's probably true even though it's hard to believe.
    I also want to point out that it appears that the Nuevo Leon attorney general's office appears to be the lead investigative agency. They are proving to be quite capable at taking on organized crime.

    3. Good story Hearst, your excellence doesn't go unnoticed or unappreciated. On a different note, I read an article that aays CJNG has been making incursions since August into the city of Tula (and surounding areas) in the state of Tamaulipas . That the Jaliscos have already taken out a couple of CDG leaders in that area. Do you happen to know anything about this? A story on this issue is screaming to be written. It's a big development. CJNG actually going into Tamaulipas to attack CDG!!! Alot of people were probably expecting it, but talking about it and actually seeing it happen are to vrey different things. Just like everyone was expecting for Rusaia to invade Ukraine, but when it actually happened everyone's jaw dropped. If it's true, it could get ugly, but let's see what tramspires. It's going to be hectic that's for sure, especially for the average citizen. Hopefully they're not preyed apon by either side.

    4. If AMLO was really going after Jaliscos, they wouldn't have expanded to the majority of Mexico. But then again Jaliscos have franchised their name to smaller local groups in certain states to fight turf against rivals

    4. I had a Mexican friend who fought in the Vietnam War at a time when the Civil Rights movement gave Black GI's new pride. Of course the White GI's hated this. Both sides knuckled up. The Chicanos were considered neutral noncombatants.
      My Mexican friend said his compas would get a heads-up when Blacks and Whites knocked heads. They would be asked to stay uninvolved.
      No wonder we lost the god-damn Vietnam War. All because White people felt threatened when Blacks decided that enough was enough and began firing back on the enemy. For Black GIs, the enemy wasnt Pham from the North.
      Their enemy was Billy Bob from Alabama.

Hegalian dialect, create a problem for the people, so they need a politician to solve the problems ( the government just created). That's how it works, they create a necessity for themselves.

    1. That's what I thought, but CJNG has been making incursions into Tamaulipas (southern part) since about august. Specifically into a town called Tula and some surrounding areas. And from what they reported, they already scored a couple of big hits against CDG in that region. They killed a couple of their leaders. In one of their earlier encursions , they left a cut off head which belonged to Sergio "Canelo" Lopez, one of the areas plaza bosses. Hopefully they stop them there (CJNG) or from similar CJNG actions, the regular civilians are going to suffer for a long time. Only time will tell

    2. Only ways jaliscas come into tamaulipas is because the pussy cdg metro faction lets them in

    3. 1:36:
      Thanks for the heads up. This could turn into interesting news in the coming months. Their foray into the altos region of Jalisco appears to be running out of steam. The Laredo to Brownsville corridor is probably the most lucrative. They intercept the largest volume of narcotics in this sector. CJNG is unpredictable, but if they are making a run for the Reynosa/Matamoros border this could get quite bloody.
