Armadillo Borderland Beat from Proceso y pacozea

Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas: A group of armed men ambushed and assaulted a vehicle carrying resources from a federal program for the elderly, more than three million pesos stolen and three state and one municipal police officers injured.

The events occurred this morning in the section known as El Escopetazo, between Tuxtla and the municipality of Ixtapa, when a vehicle that carried the resources and was escorted by state police, was attacked by armed men.

The caravan of vehicles tried to flee, but  stones and sticks thrown into the road prevented them from passing. During the assault, the armed and hooded men took 3.2 million pesos. Three state and one municipal police officers were shot, a helicopter had to arrive to transfer them to Tuxtla Gutierrez.

That section has become the point of highway assaults in which an armed civil group operates and has not been able to be dismantled.

The State Attorney General's Office (FGE), through the Central District Prosecutor's Office, said this afternoon that it initiated an investigation folder for the crime of robbery with violence in the municipality of Ixtapa to the detriment of the company Banco del Ahorro Nacional y Servicios SNC Financial.

According to the investigation file, the incident occurred on Wednesday morning on the Chiapa de Corzo-Ixtapa road, El Aguacate-Colonia Cañitas section.

The Prosecutor's Office said that it relieves all the proceedings by collecting the evidence within the investigation folders to identify the persons responsible for this commission of the crime indicated and bring them to justice.

It was impossible for the convoy to flee, because the road was blocked with sticks and stones.

The injured elements are: Limberg Trujillo Nanduca, 51, who presented a lesion (rozón) in the forehead at the level of the right eyebrow; Félix Gutiérrez José, 35, with a lesion on the nipple of the right side and reports serious; He was admitted to surgery at the Muñoa Sanatorium in Tuxtla Gutierrez.

Another injured element is Damián Gómez Patistán, who received several blows from the aggressors. Similarly, the municipal police of Ixtapa, Francisco Pérez Pérez, 37, was shot.

With this add three ambushes in which Federal resources have been stolen in the entity, so far this year.

  1. There no longer is a government in Mexico that can protects its people. Like I've stated before. Serious talks of a revolution need to be made.

    1. I get the idea but it'd very quickly become a narco-rebellion. El Mayo would end up declaring himself President.

    3. dont think so, mayo is overrated but revolution might be less evil than this ongoing slaugther. Just start with the worst politicians and police and military. Just a few hundred people might be enough and go after the money!

  3. Been reading BB for several months, and have been repulsed, at times, yet fascinated by many of these articles.
    Given the state of of Mexico, why would the government be transporting cash (reads as such) in such a hostile environment? With little protection?
    Empathy for to Her citizens.

    1. I'd prefer a PMC operation in Mexico. Though I doubt too many would be willing to take the risk. I also doubt Mexico would ever allow it.

      Delete
    2. Is PMC synonymous with CIA?

      Delete
    3. Armadillo, you bring up a good point. Mexico seems to be too proud...and too corrupt, to ever allow this to happen.

      10:00 a.m., PMCs and CIA are very different animals, although I'm sure there are times that they work very closely together.
