Young cartel leader was caught just as his reign began
from Houston Chronicle
Federal agents and South Texas police recently chased down the alleged new head of Mexico's Gulf Cartel so quickly that his young, mustachioed face never even made it to a wanted poster. Few people in law enforcement circles had heard of Juan Saenz Tamez until his capture was announced by prosecutors. The arrest of the 23-year-old Saenz showed just how far one of Mexico's longest-running crime groups has fallen — and how splintered operations have become — for a syndicate that pushes tons of cocaine and other drugs into Texas.
