Not sure why, but there has been several things happening in and around Celaya, Guanajuato.  The other day a police officer was killed while eating at a market and I believe yesterday a police vehicle was shot on the south side of the city.

AUGUST 12, 2016



SALAMANCA, GTO.- An explosive device was found at a gas station in the municipality of Salamanca early Friday.

The suspected bomb was found after an assault that took the staff of trading.

It is known that a couple of motorcyclists arrived at the street corner with Obregon and Leon amagaron dispatchers.

The robbers fled, but at that moment they left part of the stolen items and a plastic bag.

When workers came to collect the notes and coins, they realized that the bag was a bomb, so they activated the emergency system.

The area was surrounded by police of the three orders of government and gave notice to the Secretariat of National Defense.

Explosive experts are examining the device.
