Agents of the Model Unit of Attention to the Crime of Kidnapping implemented an operative in coordination with the Intelligence Unit of the State Security Commission in the Magisterial colony.

There they intercepted a white Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD pick up vehicle that was driven by Jorge Luis "N", 38, on Joaquín López Ulloa street.

Inside the unit the officers found an AK-47 weapon, a 9mm caliber pistol, a bulletproof vest, a helmet, a payroll-type account book and cell phones.

When the police met with the driver, he threatened them saying that he is a compadre of "El Sixto" and that "they did not know what they were getting into"; he also tried to bribe them with money to let him go.

Later it was discovered that Jorge Luis "N" has a criminal record for the crime of conspiracy and drug trafficking from Mexico to the United States.

He was placed at the disposal of the Federal Public Ministry for illegally carrying firearms and explosives.
