An alleged top boss of the Gulf drug cartel was captured by Mexican marines late Monday in the northern border state of Tamaulipas, which for years has been terrorized by gangland violence.The former is in a U.S. prison, while the latter was killed by Mexican security forces in 2010 .Amid frequently shifting criminal alliances and loyalties in the state, since 2014 the Gulf and Zetas cartels have been pitted against a breakaway faction of the Zetas that calls itself the Cartel of the Northeast.The dispute has rocked Tamaulipas as well as nearby Nuevo Leon, Zacatecas, San Luis Potosi and other states where the Zetas have a presence and the Northeast cartel is now fighting them.
