Translation of the Informador article:

At dawn on Thursday, elements of SSPE and local police conducted an operation to find those responsible.

Chapala, Jalisco (26 / April / 2012). - At dawn on Thursday, elements of the Chapala Municipal Police and the Ministry of Public Security (SSPE) conducted an operation, since presumably a group of armed men had set up a roadblock in the region of Cienega.

According to police, police of the two corporations came together on the road from Chapala to Jocotepec, at the Ajijic boundary, since at that point, armed men had set up a false roadblock, and were frightening neighbours of the area.

However, by the time the police/soldiers arrived, the subjects had already fled, but minutes late, around 6:00 p.m., a man was arrested in a white Nissan Tsuru who had tried to escape when he saw the police.

After a brief chase, the man was arrested. He had police-like clothing in his vehicle and could not explain the origin or purpose of this clothing use of it.
The man was taken to the Attorney General of the State (PGJE) Office for investigation.

The article in Spanish says that the man was arrested about 6 am not 6 pm

Is this picture a file photo? It looks like a big deal but it also looks like daylight and it certainly isn't anything like this bright at 6 AM (at least it wasn't when I left last Friday). If not an actual photo of this roadblock it's very misleading..

The article said 6 early morning. I don't think this picture has any relevanced to the article. It is obvious that the time of the picture is daylight and 6 AM is still dark.

Thanks for the link the the Guad Reporter article, I found the last paragraphs a little unsettling.. Especially the part about 5 execution murders and at least 15 missing persons locally in the last week.


Contreras told the Reporter that he was unable to corroborate the true source of the dire messages circulated on Wednesday. He stated emphatically that his officers were not under orders to alert the public that trouble was brewing.


However, widespread fears that the chief qualified as a state of “collective psychosis” came on the heels the latest rash of shootouts, kidnappings and murders plaguing the lakeshore region. The Ministerio Publico district chief confirmed reports of five execution-style homicides, at least 15 missing persons cases and a confrontation between criminals and police registered in Tizapan, Jocotepec and San Juan Cosala over the past week alone.
