Alleged members of the New Generation Jalisco Cartel were captured parading armed and hooded in a Veracruz carnival.
A convoy of around 20 SUVs belonging to the Cartel of Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG) was captured parading during the Carnival Mixtequilla of allegorical cars of the state of Veracruz on the night of March 14.
The video of the disconcerting event began to circulate in social networks, in which the vehicles are observed parading with hooded individuals carrying firearms on board.
When questioned about their null action in this regard, security elements responded in a statement:
"While we were on a prevention and surveillance tour on board the SPM-045 unit, with seven elements in support of the traditional Mixtec Carnival, a convoy of approximately 28 vehicles with men armed with heavy-gauge weapons was present on board and with the acronym CJNG ".
Being outnumbered and armed, the authorities would have dedicated themselves only to safeguard the citizens who were present.
This fact occurs in the middle of an intensified wave of violence that has been going through the state for weeks.
