The Secretariat of Public Security (SSP) Yucatán called to report those who were victims of auto parts thieves who operated in Mérida, to continue the legal process against the gang from Mexico City.
And on the afternoon of Monday, November 20, authorities reported the arrest of four people from Mexico City, to clarify their responsibility for the theft of auto parts in different neighborhoods of Mérida.
Thus, in a message issued on social network X, the SSP Yucatán indicates:
“Attention call: Owners of vehicles from whom auto parts such as computers, headlights, and other parts have been stolen. “We urge you to report to the @fgeyucatan. The complaint is important to continue the legal process against those likely responsible for the crime.”
And the response from Internet users was immediate, even a person identified with the user @mario_enriquez said he was a victim of the criminal gang.
He shared a 36-second video, dated November 19, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. in Montes de Amé, as he noted, where three men are seen looting a white van.
It is noted that the three suspects are wearing white T-shirts, one with a cap, two with shorts, and another with sports pants. They approach the car with a visible attitude of alert, and they operate quickly and expertly to remove auto parts in a matter of seconds.
The location and capture of the probable auto parts theft gang that operated in Mérida was achieved through calls to the 911 emergency number made by citizens whose vehicles were dismantled for parts and accessories, mostly on the south side of Merida.
The police arrest was coordinated with the cooperation of the State Investigative Police (PEI) field units, and the State Attorney General’s Office (FGE).
The members of the alleged auto parts theft gang were identified as Alejandro C. B., 23 years old; Benjamín Alejandro E. A., 33; Mario Alberto O. M., 27, and Enrique Hugo B. S., 30.
