8 Arrested in Mexico For Manufacturing Drone Explosives

8 Arrested in Mexico For Manufacturing Drone Explosives


Eight Colombian nationals have been arrested in Michoacan, Mexico for allegedly working on improvised explosive devices for Los Viagras, a local criminal group involved in the drug trade. The Colombians were arrested by state and federal forces who also seized four improvised explosives, a .38 Super calibre pistol, 16 magazines and 1,040 cartridges for long weapons.

The explosives were reported to be used via drones, an increasingly popular tactic by criminal groups in Mexico. Explosives are attached to drones before they are dropped on other criminal groups, civilians, and state forces. In this video alleged members of the Sinaloa Cartel can be seen dropping explosives from a drone of alleged members of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG). 


After the arrests, a roadblock was set up in Buenavista, where the arrests took place in Michoacan, by Los Viagras, in protest against the arrest. However, it was quickly removed with no violent clashes between the criminal group and state or federal forces.
