Methamphetamine Lab Dismantled Near Culiacan, Sinaloa

"Socalj" for Borderland Beat

The western states of the country are the main producers of synthetic drugs, including the bastion of the Sinaloa Cartel.

Federal authorities secured and dismantled a drug laboratory that operated on the outskirts of Culiacán, Sinaloa, a bastion and center of operations for the Sinaloa Cartel; it is presumed that methamphetamine was produced at the scene since chemical precursors of the drug were found.

The Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena) reported what happened on Monday, April 11, the date on which military elements delivered what was secured to the Public Ministry of the Attorney General's Office (FGR). 

The laboratory was located in the town of Tachinolpa, on the outskirts of Culiacán, Sinaloa, where they found 24 liters and 99 milliliters of liquid methamphetamine, 139 liters and 97 milliliters of acetone, as well as 109 liters with 98 milliliters of toluene, in addition to gas tanks and metal structures.

“According to the investigation, elements of the Ministry of National Defense (SEDENA) located a probable clandestine laboratory used for the production of synthetic drugs and handed over the site to the Federal Ministerial Police (PFM) and personnel from Expert Services, to carry out inspection, processing and investigation tasks,” the agency reported.

The Regional Control Prosecutor's Office for the Sinaloa Delegation began the investigation folder for the case, so the intelligence work carried out managed to find the whereabouts of the clandestine facilities.

"The insured was made available to the Federal Public Ministry, who began the investigation folder against who or who is responsible for the crime against health," Sedena said in the statement.

In recent months, federal authorities have dismantled various drug laboratories in various towns belonging to the municipality of Culiacán, which has historically been controlled by the Sinaloa Cartel.
