The first official investigations indicate that "El Viejón", 40 years old, originally from the state of Morelos, allegedly distributed cocaine from Ecuador and Colombia in Hidalgo, Tamaulipas and Mexico City.

The events occurred when the capital Police, the Mexico City Prosecutor's Office and the National Guard complied with a search warrant issued by a judge at a home where he allegedly hid and was the center of his operations.

In the building, 42 kilos of cocaine distributed in packages with cinnamon tape and two modified vehicles with hidden compartments to transport the drug and money were seized, reported the Ministry of Citizen Security.

El Viejón coordinate the distribution of narcotics and money

The accused, according to police intelligence sources, was in charge of coordinating the distribution of narcotics and money to said entities.

In addition, according to the information released through the exchange of information, it was learned that vehicles were modified in said building to transport the drug on highways and thus evade police checkpoints. With this information, the evidence was accredited to obtain the search warrant granted to the Public Prosecutor's Office.

During this morning, a coordinated operational deployment was implemented between National Guard personnel, members of the capital police and the Prosecutor's Office, in which they acted without the use of violence, the Secretariat of Citizen Security (SSC) highlighted in a statement.

Two firearms, useful cartridges, gram scales, a money counter, telephone equipment and money packed in plastic bags were also seized at the home.

The property was sealed and placed under police guard, while the investigations continue while the detainee was presented, together with the insured, before the agent of the Public Ministry in the Relevant Matters Investigation Prosecutor's Office, who will define his legal situation and will follow up the investigations.
