Members of the Secretariat of Citizen Security (SSC) of Mexico City, arrested a foreigner who, in the trunk of a vehicle, was transporting vacuum-sealed plastic bags with apparent drugs, in the streets of the Álvaro Obregón mayor’s office.

As the police unit approached, the crew member changed direction and continued his escape, so with the arrival of other work teams, they caught up with him at Ernesto Domínguez Street, where with voice commands, they told him to get out.

In accordance with the police action protocol, a security check was carried out, after which, in the trunk of the gray vehicle with license plates from the state of Guerrero, they found 69 vacuum-sealed plastic bags with a yellowish substance similar to cocaine, weighing approximately 69 kilograms and a short firearm supplied with six useful cartridges.
