After the fact, the annoyance against Loría Rodríguez was afloat, La Verdad reported, because a survey among elements of the police foce indicated that no one tolerates it by arrogant and corrupt, since the ‘Owl’, as he is also known, is who allegedly controls the corruption in bars, prostitution and other illicit sites in the Historic Center of Merida.

They alleged that he controls a group of criminals, and when they are arrested, he orders their release near the place where they were arrested, as long as they give him his “cuota” (payoff).
