According to law enforcement offials, the suspect attempted to bride the officers by offering 500 thousand dollars in exchange of his liberty, however the PEP elements and Ministerial officers, rejected the offer and an investigation for "coercion" will begin because he attempted to bribe officials.
"When he realized that he could not bribe us, he threaten the officials and attempted to intimidate law enforcerment officers by identifyng himself as "El Nito Amavizca", leader of Cartel Beltran Leyva plazas in several states of the country, like Chiapas, Michoacan, Distrito Federal, Nuevo Leon, Sinaloa, Sonora and Baja California, focusing on Guerrero, where he concentrated his efforts in Acapulco and Zihuatanejo, which are ports with high levels of violence due to plaza disputes", according to the Secretary of Public Security.
