Knight Templar boss El Troyano arrested

An anonymous tip led to the mobilization of federal forces to a hotel, suspecting the presence of a leader of the Knights Templar.

Over 100 federal police, supported by artillery and rifle trucks surrounded the hotel between Avenue Monterrey and Viaducto de la colonia Piedad Narvarte, Benito Juárez, Mexico City.

Preliminary versions, the call alerted to the presence of the offender known as "El Troyano", alleged leader of the plaza of the Knights Templar in Toluca.

The operation in the hotel wstarted around 8:00 am covertly, but during the morning was reinforced by vehicles and uniformed elements.

The surrounding streets were fenced out of fear of possible clashes. In the operation the Attorney General's Office (PGR) participated and ended around 5:30 am.

After searching the hotel floor by floor, the Federal Police withdrew without reporting the results or who was detained.
