The Mexican navy arrested Mario "El Gordo" Cardenas Guillen, a presumed senior member of the Gulf cartel, on Sept. 3 in Altamira, Tamaulipas state. Although U.S. and Mexican media outlets have described Mario as the overall leader of the Gulf cartel, he actually served a lesser role. His arrest will likely affect a specific faction of the Gulf cartel, Los Rojos, more than the cartel as a whole.
