The Community Police of Tepalcatepec, Michoacán spotted a subject, an alleged member of the criminal group “Los Viagras”, disguised as a Mexican Military Soldier and who was also accompanied by a lieutenant of the Secretariat of National Defense (SEDENA).
Both were arrested by comunitarios (community members) while they were aboard a cloned Mexican Military vehicle with serial number: 3317356.
“This sicario of Los Viagras, dressed as a soldier, (he intended) to plant drugs on certain legitimate autodefensa leaders,” an autodefensa leader revealed.
He said that they managed to identify him because he had a full beard and a mustache, the military “do not use the type of beard of sicarios.”
“Thank God they managed to distinguish him in time and present him, along with the lieutenant in charge of this operation belonging to the 17th Battalion, and who was also reported to his superior officers,” he said.
The comunitario also reported that the same lieutenant had had conflicts with the autodefensas on the day of the operation against Los Viagras.
According to his statement, these soldiers reside in areas that are dominated by Los Viagras such as: Catalinas, Pinzandaro, Colonias y Santa Ana, Cenobio Moreno, División del Norte and other villages in the municipalities of Buena Vista Tomatlán and Apatzingán.
