Chiapas property search reveals two tons of cocaine

Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas — More than two tons of cocaine was located during a property search in the state of Chiapas. The Attorney General’s Office of the Republic (FGR) reported the discovery of the cocaine with the support of the Secretary of National Defense (SEDENA).

The more than 2,000 packages of cocaine were found in a building in the Laureles neighborhood in the municipality of Tapachula, Chiapas. The discovery was made after elements of the Secretariat of National Defense located an armed man driving a truck.

The driver refused to stop, but instead, drove to the property where he got out and ran, leaving his vehicle open. Military personnel saw the gun and, what appeared to be, blocks of cocaine inside the truck. A search warrant was issued for the property, which is where authorities located the additional blocks of cocaine.

Elements of the Federal Ministerial Police (PFM), of the Criminal Investigation Agency (AIC) located 2,355 kilos of cocaine. They also seized a shotgun, ammo and two vehicles.
