Caborca, Sonora.- A wake of
terror and destruction was generated at dawn this Friday an armed commando on
the federal highway – Caborca-Sonoyta section, where they set fire to two
restaurants (known as hookahs), stole two vehicles to set them on fire on the
same street and then damaged at least three dozen vehicles with
“poncha-llantas”, [pointed spiked devices thrown on the street to puncture
restaurants located at kilometers 200 and 207, around one in the morning, beat
the workers and seized two vehicles, and then set the businesses on fire.
Before leaving, they stripped
workers and customers of some belongings and headed south, until they reached
kilometer 165, where they blocked the road and burned the two stolen units.
But during that journey, they
threw poncha-llantas, which caused around 30 vehicles, including
cargo units, left with damaged.
There was an
intense mobilization of municipal police and government forces, as well as
military forces and the Caminos Division of the National Guard, but the armed
group was not located.
