Mexico oil theft clash leaves at least 10 dead, including four soldiers

Posted by Yaqui for Borderland Beat


At least four soldiers and six suspected oil thieves died in a battle in the central Mexican state of Puebla, authorities said on Thursday, as the army launched a major operation against organized criminals who siphon fuel from pipelines.

Some 600 soldiers were involved in the initial operation, the state government said, with another 400 backed by helicopters and truck-mounted weapons joining them.

The troops were called in to investigate a report of an oil pipeline theft at around 8:15 p.m. local time (0115 GMT) on Wednesday, near the village of Palmarito, when they were shot at by a group using women and children as human shields, the army said in a statement.



At least four soldiers and six suspected oil thieves died in a battle in the central Mexican state of Puebla, authorities said on Thursday, as the army launched a major operation against organized criminals who siphon fuel from pipelines.



Some 600 soldiers were involved in the initial operation, the state government said, with another 400 backed by helicopters and truck-mounted weapons joining them.

The troops were called in to investigate a report of an oil pipeline theft at around 8:15 p.m. local time (0115 GMT) on Wednesday, near the village of Palmarito, when they were shot at by a group using women and children as human shields, the army said in a statement.

The soldiers decided not to return fire, but two of them died in the attack and another was wounded.
A few hours later in the same location, armed men in five sport-utility vehicles opened fire on a different group of soldiers, the army said in a statement on Thursday.

Two more soldiers died in the ensuing firefight and nine were wounded, the army said. Six suspected fuel thieves were killed, while one was wounded, it added. The army said soldiers also arrested at least 12 people, including two minors.

Television images on Thursday showed locals blocking a nearby highway with burning tires and a semi truck in the wake of the attacks. Local media reported that the protesters blamed the army for starting the incidents, and said a number of minors were still missing.

The clash is the latest chapter in a growing problem for the Mexican government. State-run oil company Pemex [PEMX.UL] says it is losing a record 27,000 barrels per day of gasoline and diesel as criminal gangs have become more involved in oil theft.

  2. Unprecedented violence continues to occur within the Mexican states. Lack of respect and stupidity has become a norm for this criminal association.These Modern day bandits with killing intentions are becoming more frequent.
    The profits must be very generous to engage in such.
    What are the estimated costs of losses which Mexican government officials speculate? Yearly that is?
    Can only imagine that such losses will only incurred higher costs for its customers?

    1. Just to many hands in the drug pie . Not enough to go around . Kinda like coyotes . Now and then the population get way out of hand and we have to kill them off .

    2. 2:46 "The population" does not have the technical expertise to tap pipelines, the pipes to transport the siphoned oil, or the US contacts to sell the oil to.
      You can google "oil companies that buy pirated mexican oil" speciallyin tejas, they also help moving it through the border, but some is sold in mexican gas stations, I garras tee you the population does not have refineries to process crude oils either, but the population gets thinned all the time, no excuses needed.
      Drug traffickers are one different operation of the mexican government, also in cahoots with US interests combined with european partners, because, who would want the europeans nosing around the many crimes aginst humanity committed by LatinAmerican satrapies with US help against their peoples?.
      --It is very telling that 1 000 mexican army soldiers cut and ran when confronted by a bunch of oil thieves, "after getting 2 soldiers killed",
      --it is also very telling that the mexican armies of 1 000 soldiers with helicopters came back to have 2 more casualties in spite of the thieves having children to shield themselves from mexican army fire,
      --this shit smells like another mexican army mass murder...

    3. I can see your point of view 4:15 pm.
      Funny how thousands of soldiers are implemented for such activities when cities are burning and killings are occurring at alarming rates.
      Guess priorities are not appropriately applied by government to its citizens. Rather to its vested interest partners and ones pockets.

    5. 5:56 in Tlatlaya and Tanhuato, human shields were used between the bullets and the walls or the grundy where the victims of the mexican armies and policia judicial were murdered.
      What goes around fomes around, there are a lot of "human shields" around, waiting for someone to use them wisely.

    2. 8:04 I wonder after how many millions are owed them the oil thieves get i.prisoner on the US and their accounts become american bounty for their baad deeds. And then, who would get inside a oil pipe to check for contraband drugs? It don't look like a mexican narco with guns, guarachis and sombrero.

    1. Do you realize that the stolen oil is not even a quarter of the profits that the cartels gain by selling drugs?

      Violence may never stop at Mexico, but at least innocent citizens will stop dying because of this stupid drug war that was initiated by the US junkies who aren't even feeling the consequences.

    3. I find it so hard to believe that such citizens could actually adore in some spiritual sense to honor thieves. Moreover to praise such behavior with songs of praise or admiration.
      Has this Mexican society become so belittled with self respect and dignity to condone such behavior? Where once a deep catholic rooted society followed a meaningful way of life.
      Hard to comprehend such ignorance.
      Then again the world and its citizens have adopted some unforgivable behavior. Where laws and moral values have been under attacked by senseless and irresponsible behavior. Wher rational judgment has no merit.
      Unbelievable.

    5. 5:23 if "these few oil thieves" gave so much trouble to the mexican army and their helicoteros, maybe the mexican government should court martial their elements and send them to the fire squad.
      8:18 it IS their fault, stop your pantominas mister theresa.
      "They" just want to privatize it all by any means necessary...

  10. Yeah blame the Us junkies. I don't see them killing innocents an imigrants to get high. One thing I've learned from living in Mexico an Guatemala is the majority don't take responsibility for their actions. Stealing an corruption is so imbedded in the the countries that it's the norm. As beautiful an full of resources as both are why are they such shit holes. Americans made America what it is today. Mexicans made Mexico what it is today . Guatemalans made Mexico what it is today. It's time everybody starts taking responsibility for their actions . It would be like those as you say US junkies saying it's the dam Mexicans fault I'm a loser cause they supply it.

    1. 4:33 United Fruit co, begat te CIA, and since then teir anticommunist campaigns and counterinsurgency tactics have created the Latino violence, murders and drug trafficking, on top of investing hundreds of millions of dollars in murdering suppossed communist guerrillas, never mind other criminals like drug traffickers, educating a communist takes a long time, creating drug traffickers is much easier, and you don'have a well polished educated big mouth, but sending so military and ex-military to run shit along surely works.
      Don't blame mexican middlemen or the addicted americans, blame all the money there to be made from wars on drugs, rehabilitation centers, corrections, employment as prison guards, that destabilize a countruntil all the state property is sold for peanuts and owned by the greediest of the greedy bastards, not by the american people some defend or accuse so eagerly

  17. This is Mexico... you raise the price of gas, now pushing $20 pesos for a litre of roja and this is what you get in a country that has a 55 peso minimum wage. All around you, you see folks living well, driving new fancy cars from theft, graft and systemic corruption, while many nearly starve... how can anyone blame the poor for revolting...
