Kidnap victims freed in Tlajomulco

July 31, 2013

Agents from the Jalisco Prosecutor General’s Office (FGE) freed two abductees and detained nine suspects in a raid in Tlajomulco’s El Palomar neighborhood on Monday.

Investigating a kidnapping in the vicinity, officers identified the suspects leaving a property aboard a Hummer. When told to stop, the suspects opened fire. The state agents wounded one of the assailants and learned upon arresting them the location of another safe house.

Upon reaching the house the agents came under fire again, but managed to detain the suspects as they attempted to escape out back. Two kidnap victims were found and released, while nine suspects were arrested in total. The agents decommissioned several vehicles and five firearms at the two properties.

The detainees are believed to have been behind a number of kidnappings and homicides, while one is suspected of involvement in the massacre of 26 people whose dismembered corpses were left in a van beside Guadalajara’s iconic Millennium Arches in November 2011.
