"El ingeniero" CJNG plaza boss captured in Veracruz
Between attacks, shootings and terror: the blows to the CJNG in Veracruz and Guanajuato
The capture of "The Engineer" unleashed a series of shootings and left four agents dead; in Guanajuato 24 members of the criminal group fell
The capture of Michael "N", aka "The Engineer" , considered the head of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) in the Veracruz municipalities of Cosoleacaque, Jaltipan, Chinameca, Oteapan and Minatitlán unleashed moments of terror among the inhabitants of Coatzacoalcos and Córdoba.
The arrest carried out by elements of the Navy, occurred on Friday on John Spark Avenue in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz when he was driving aboard a van in the company of two subjects, identified as Rony de Jesús 'N', Jorge Luis 'N', Sarahí 'N', its alleged operators, and a minor, who brought with them 166 doses of synthetic drug called crystal.
The capture unleashed a series of shootings in the surroundings, as well as the attack on a base of the Single Command in Cordoba, which left four police officers dead.
The State Secretariat of Public Security (SSP) reported that two of the agents killed are state and the other two municipal.
The first attack occurred around 4:00 p.m. in the police watchtower, located on the Córdoba-Fortín boulevard along Shangrilá square, where two police officers of the Single Command died.
The second aggression was against a Cordoba police patrol, where the two occupants of the unit were also killed.
After the police attacks, several department stores closed their doors, in order to prevent employees or customers from being injured.
The agency attributed this aggression to the operatives registered in the area that have led to "blows to criminal groups"
"The recorded events are the result of the intense operations carried out in the area, by state and federal forces, where seizures, arms insurance, vehicle recovery with theft report and blows to criminal groups have been achieved," he said.
After the attack on the facilities of the Single Command in Córdoba, the Ministry of Public Security activated the Red Code to deploy a strong operation that culminated in the Tlacotengo Road with the arrest of two subjects who are presumed to be responsible for the four elements executed.
