Two Drug Traffickers arrested in Valladolid, Yucatán

Share This
On Monday July 14th, 2014, Ministerial Federal Agents, supported by military personnel and State Police, conducted raids in two different parts of the city of Valladolid.  Two people were detained.  One of the detainees is Miguel Mendoza, AKA “Moniquillo”.
Military personnel and state police officers teamed up at the local “Ministerio Público” to initiate the operation.  Police officer Miguel Angel Suaste Huech said that the military asked for police support, but they ignored the objective.
After noticing the presence of the media, the military and state police withdrew. The military returned to the XX Motorized Cavalry Regiment.  This move was only to distract the media, however, because immediately thereafter the State and Ministerial Police headed to the neighborhood known as “Los Chiveros” where they arrested another suspect. This time the Military did not request support of the Municipal Police, to prevent any information leaking to the press.

Around two in the afternoon Military and Police met again at the gates of the “Ministerio Público” and headed to a property located on Calle 56 (between 39 and 41) in the neighborhood of Bacalar.  There the federal agents spent an hour and a half searching for drugs and weapons with a German Shepherd dog.  Military personnel were instructed to close the street to avoid access to motorists, pedestrians or the media.
