Chihuahua State Police Commander Shot to Death Near US Border; Sicarios Then Burned His Vehicle

"MX" for Borderland Beat

The attack occurred in the town of Falomir, some 40 mi (64 km) southwest of Presidio, Texas.
Andrés Lara Durán, a police commander of the State Investigatory Agency (AEI) based in Ojinaga, Chihuahua, was shot to death inside his vehicle. Investigators said that the assailants burned the pick-up truck with Lara Duran inside after they killed him.

Images shared on social media showed his truck riddled with bullet holes and still on fire.

"They killed another comrade from Ojinaga. Cartel members do what they want with the police," an officer told a local media outlet.

The motive for the killing is officially unknown, but local media outlets say that Lara Duran was probably killed for heading a raid at a ranch in Ojinada where several luxury vehicles were seized in May 20, 2021. At the scene, authorities seized a Porsche and Lamborghini that were stolen in the US and up to US$800,000 in cash.

The mastermind of the attack was identified as Sergio Menchaca (alias "El Menchaca"), the head of the criminal group La Linea in Ojinaga and Aldama. A native of the state of Durango, El Menchaca has been living in Chihuahua for over 10 years and is linked to several criminal activities in the area, including drug trafficking and human smuggling.

Sources indicate that so far this year at least 15 police officers have been assassinated in different municipalities of Chihuahua. One of the most recent cases occurred on May 7, when Commander Luis Raúl Tarango Ávila was shot in an ambush at the entrance to Parral.

  3. “Menchaca” is head of La Linea faction based in Ojinaga. His group is present in Ojinaga, Coyame del Sotol, Manuel Benavides, and Aldama municipios. “Menchaca” took control of this La Linea faction around 2013-2014 and has maintained control over Ojinaga since then. Under “Menchaca” is “Neri”/“Quemado” and “Bizcocho”.

    1. Thank you. We included that source in references section. I checked our archives and this was the first mention of El Menchaca. Earliest mentions of him that I found in Diario de Juárez archives were from 2016 or so.

  8. Chihuahua State Police have been known for working under Sinaloa. That's why Linea keeps killing them off.
