An investigation reportedly revealed a commander who allegedly accepted payoffs to release criminals…
MERIDA — According to La Verdad newspaper, the imminent dismissal of the deputy director of Public Safety of the Municipal Police of Merida, Manuel Jesús Uco Limón, put on alert the whole police force, after he was fired amid an investigation of acts of high-level corruption.
The problem began when carrying out an investigation that exposed of the alleged corruption of high-level commanders, being Commander Carlos Manuel Loría Rodríguez, First Police-Operational Area of Roads and Traffic, one of those affected by the investigations, which caused the departure of Uco Limon from the municipal police.
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). These actions are no longer tolerable in the force, so when combined with Uco Limón, it could lead to a massive resignation, according to La Verdad.
