Just last April, Haro Rodriguez fought off an attempt to capture him. During that firefight, his gunmen set up blockades all over the city and torched buses and cars to keep authorities at bay.

Various sources confirm that Haro Rodriguez had in fact been captured, but managed to bribe his way out, which is common in Tamaulipas.

According to Breitbart Texas, various high ranking cartel commanders have been arrested in the past only to be set free after paying hefty bribes.
