a control judge linked the four detainees to the process during an operation where they were 1.6 tons of cocaine seizedin the Gustavo A. Madero mayor’s office.
Guillermo “N”, Jesus “N”, Carlos “N” and Luis “N”originally from Durango, are charged with the crime of bribery. However, the court declined jurisdiction for his probable commission of crimes against health at the federal level, due to the amount of drug seized. Therefore, it will be the Office of the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) who formulates the imputation.
In addition, the judge upheld the precautionary measure of justified preventive detention, therefore, they will remain in the North Prison during the criminal process. The judge determined the term one month to close the complementary investigation.
On July 26, a ton and a half of cocaine, found in two tractor-trailers that circulated in the Gustavo A. Madero mayor’s office, was seized by capital authorities. This would have a value of around 400 million pesos in Mexico.
According to the head of the capital’s Security Secretariat, Omar García Harfuch, this is the largest drug seizure in Mexico City that has been registered in at least 12 years.
The shipment originated in Colombia, passed through Oaxaca and was finally insured in the Mexican capital; her final destination was Los Angeles.
On July 28, the detainees were transferred to the North Prison, after the investigation folder for crimes against health was opened.
