Mexico City –  The son of former top Gulf drug cartel boss Antonio Ezequiel Cardenas Guillen aka  Tony Tormenta, was captured by marines, the Mexican Navy Secretariat said Tuesday.

Ezequiel Cardenas Rivera was detained last Friday along with four associates while he attended a party at a house in Matamoros, a border city in the northeastern state of Tamaulipas, the secretariat said.

The arrest of Cardenas Rivera, known as “El Junior,” was made possible by a tip and “naval intelligence work,” the secretariat said, without explaining why it waited four days to announce the capture

The suspects, who were armed, were detained as they started to drive away from the house “in a hurry,” the Navy Secretariat said, adding that no shots were fired in the operation.

Jose de Jesus Garcia Hernandez, 32, suspected of being the Gulf cartel’s boss in Matamoros, located across the border from Brownsville, Texas, and Rene Alberto Munguia Elizondo, 43, who worked as an accountant for the criminal organization, were arrested along with Cardenas Riveraread more Click here: Mexican drug lord’s son captured | Fox News Latino
