Busted: Clandestine Fuel Operation in a Mexico City Cemetary

An alleged clandestine fuel "take" was discovered this morning in the Santa Lucía pantheon, in the Azcapotzalco delegation of Mexico City.

The pantheon is located at the corner of Tezozomoc and Camino a Nextengo Barrio Lucia, where a man was arrested and presented to the appropriate authorities.

In the place were also two trucks and two hoses with which supposedly the extraction of the fuel was carried out. Just in front of the pantheon there are concrete poles that announce the high pressure pipelines and the danger of any excavation in this area.

The entrance of the pantheon was under police guard  until dawn.

In June, authorities in Mexico City and operative personnel of Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex) found a tunnel, a clandestine fuel intake and four intoxicated people inside a home in the Azcapotzalco delegation.

According to the first reports, residents of the Tezozomoc colony alerted the authorities about a strong smell of fuel, so they proceeded to enter the building located on Xilancas # 9 and Tezozomoc Street, in what apparently was a lumberyard.

Upon arriving at the site, firefighters found a tunnel that resulted in a clandestine intake of fuel, as well as four people with signs of intoxication. The four people were transferred to the 'Ruben Leñero' hospital of CDMX.

On April 11, elements of the  Municipal Police of Tlalnepantla, State of Mexico, located a clandestine outlet in the street of Quiches, Colonia Arenal.

The police noticed the clandestine "take" when several subjects were filling some tanks with fuel in a van. Inside the truck several drums were found connected to a hose coming from the drain. At least one person was arrested and placed at the disposal of the Public Ministry.
