Zacatecas, ZAC: Police Remove Caltrops Thrown Near The Galerías Roundabout

"Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat

In the early hours of this Friday in this Zacatecas city roadway, subjects who were allegedly escaping in vehicles from men who were pursuing them in other units threw the objects.

The metal caltrops known as "ponchallantas" were removed by elements of the Proximity Police and the Highway Police who went to the site after a report was made shortly after 5:00 in the morning.The objects were thrown into the street.

Investigative Police personnel also attended the event to file the corresponding report. It's not known if any damage was caused to any vehicle, but by removing them before the traffic began to flow at this busy point, major damage was avoided.

The authorities did a tour of the area to rule out the possibility of more tire spikes in the area. No official information has been released by the authorities as to who threw the caltrops or who the perpetrators were of the possible shooting.


  1. sol any news on how many caltrops were found? were these professionally made caltrops? or were these made in a clandestine caltrop factory? so many questions

    1. Yes my son to be exact 65.
      They were manufactured in China, Cartels buys them at wholesale.

  2. So el chaparro from Pajaros Sierra and 10 more of sicarios got killed, if he only had stayed loyal to Don Mencho this wouldnt have happened

    1. It wasn't chaparro de main leader that got killed it was miguel Valencia plaza boss of cotija

    2. 2:23 correct it was not Chaparro Mascorro but if I understood correctly he was a contra of NG. From what was mentioned in the video the Guardia Civil aka Policía Michoacána are the ones who killed him but who knows, if it was them why take him and the three others they found to another place?
