A high profile criminal was apprehended by Mexicali Police early Sunday, according to media reports.
The incident took place at 5:40 a.m. in the Colonia Esperanza area, where five individuals were arrested.
Police agents were patrolling the area when a white BMW vehicle was seen with a passenger with his head outside.
The police stopped the driver and according to the authorities a firearm was found inside.
The police arrested Jesús, 27, Yaeli, 21, José Gilberto, 20, of Mexicali, as well as Sayuri, 19, of Chiapas, and Francisco, 26, of Hermosillo, Sonora.
The latter is thought to be an alleged member of the Salazar criminal band that is presumably involved in several crimes. The arrested individuals were turned to the Mexican Attorney General’s office.
