The initial investigations suggest that the material could belong to the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG), to whose cells the authorities attribute the authorship of the alleged massacre recorded last Sunday at a wake in San José de Gracia.

The Attorney General of the State of Michoacán reported that it secured a building that served as a "factory" for explosives to be launched from drones, in the municipality of Marcos Castellanos.

The place was located this Wednesday by agents of the National Guard, the Mexican Army and the State Police, who continue to search for the criminal cell that presumably massacred an undetermined number of people last Sunday during a wake in San José de Gracia. , the main town of Marcos Castellanos.

The Michoacan Prosecutor's Office reported that the site was located through an air and ground operation, in a rural area of ​​the town of La Estancia, located 15 kilometers from San José de Gracia.

The officers seized explosives popularly known as "potatoes", a kind of circular package made with gunpowder, metal nails and other sharp objects, which are projected when detonated against the target.

In addition, the uniformed officers discovered cylindrical explosives equipped with a type of handmade fins , which work as stabilizers when they are dropped by drones.

According to the first investigations of the FGE, the explosive material could belong to the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel (CJNG) , to whose cells the authorities attribute the authorship of the alleged massacre recorded last Sunday at a wake in San José de Gracia.

Police and military agents continue to search for an armed criminal cell led by the drug trafficker identified as Alejandro "N", alias "El Toro" or "El Viejón", leader of the CJNG in San José de Gracia and allegedly responsible for the massacre that occurred on Sunday.

"El Toro" or "El Viejón" is accused of leading the massacre in San José de Gracia, where he murdered a drug trafficker identified as Abel "N", alias "El Pelón", who with his group of assassins was at his mother's funeral.

"El Toro" also ordered the lifting and hiding of the bodies of "El Pelón" and his assassins, for which the authorities are looking for both the armed cell and the bodies, in the border area of ​​Michoacán and Jalisco.

It is worth mentioning that "El Pelón" was a drug trafficker who was also part of the CJNG and operated on the borders of the states of Colima and Jalisco, although he had old quarrels with "El Toro" for murders and disappearances of relatives of both parties.
