Re: Video: Tunnel discovered leading to Reynosa Prison from a house
Translation of above article
Tunnel found and attempt of escape stopped
The spokesman for the Security Department of the state of Tamaulipas reported on the finding of an unfinished tunnel that started from a shack toward the Reynosa prison.
In his Twitter account he said "Last night it was detected the unusual movement of removal of land in the vicinity of Reynosa Prison."
With the support of state-of-the-art technology, it was possible to detect the exact location of this irregular construction that could have been used for the escape of inmates. Because the tunnel was unfinished, no escape was consummated, he stated.
The Security Minister reported that the site was guarded and the review of the rest of the facilities will be continued to detect if there is another type of irregular construction. In addition, an operation was carried out in the vicinity of the prison.
RECOVERING THE PEACE. Governor Francisco Garcia Cabeza de Vaca assured that the peace and security that had been taken from Tamaulipas will be recovered, and blamed the previous governments for aligning (making pacts) with criminals.
Through a video that spread in social networks, the state agent sent a message to the citizens of Tamaulipas, stating that, 7 months after starting his government, "one of our priorities has been the fight against organized crime."
He described as irresponsible the past state governments, colluded with crime, with a situation "more regrettable that we had imagined."
"They not only made agreements with criminals, but also weakened the Public Security institutions in our state," he said.
He explained that of the more than 9,000 elements of Public Security required by Tamaulipas, only 2,700 police officers were found, and most of them were unprepared, with insufficient equipment and weapons, with inadequate and insufficient surveillance cameras.
They now have found two excavations in the Reynosa Prison
Saturday, they found a tunnel, this time the SSP (Secretariat of Public Security) reports these excavations were used as storage warehouses for weapons, alcohol and tools.
Through a review operation, two excavations in the Reynosa prison were discovered, used as warehouses for the storage of weapons, products and tools.
These two excavations, found in the workshop area, joined an unfinished tunnel that was discovered late Saturday.
The Secretariat of Public Security reported that after the tunnel and excavations were detected, various actions were taken to maintain order and legality in the prison.
Among the measures taken were the transfer of four inmates who were responsible for the excavations to another prison center, in addition to the fact that the State Police carried out a review that drugs found, weapons, cell phones, beer, liquor, (some sharp tipped objects? puntas hechizas - not sure of translation) and construction tools.
Small plastic bags with grass, apparently marijuana and with drug dosis of powder, two small short arms, expert ? cartridges, beer cans, tequila bottles, bottles of whiskey, cell phones, military-looking clothing and footwear were confiscated. Spiked toes, knives and a table for torture; In one of the tunnels tools for construction were found; No reviews are being ruled out in the other areas.
The State Police undertook a series of revisions in the perimeter of the cells, to determine the point where the tunnel would have ended and later proceeded with the inmate list, counting a total penitentiary population of 1,610, of which 1,546 are men and 64 women.
This Sunday, at the Reynosa Cells, normal activities went on, such as allowing family visits every weekend.
The Secretary of Public Security announced that it will continue with the operations inside the Tamaulipas Centers of Execution of Sanctions, so that they are operating on the regulations and fulfill the function of social re-adaption.
(some sharp tipped objects? puntas hechizas - not sure of translation)...
those are also called poncha llantas, which are often short concrete nails formed into tipped tripods.
they are used to put on the road to pop the tires of pursuing patrols. so the bad guys go down the road ahead of the good guys and put these on the road to pop tires. sort of like a mexican spike strip but like a road runner cartoon.
