The rollover of a vehicle in the Mexico City uncovered the size of logistics and transfer in said region.

This Monday, around 8:30 p.m., a white pick-up truck that was circulating on Avenida Río San Joaquín, Lomas de Sotelo neighborhood, in the Miguel Hidalgo mayor’s office suffered an accident.

According to reports from the CDMX firefighters, the unit, with the NYT-8991 plates, was left on the awning on that road avenue. Due to that, the authorities proceeded to place the truck in a normal position and place it in a place where it would not obstruct the flow of vehicles.

As soon as the rescue actions were carried out, the firefighters discovered something more than a crash. In the van they transported at least 150 kilograms of cocaine.

The white powder – which flows in at least seven arteries of the city – was enclosed, covered with tarps in one of the compartments of the unit. According to the journalist and author of the book Chilango Cartel, Antonio Nieto, the merchandise —with an approximate value of USD 40 million— would belong to Rafael Caro Quintero, a drug lord who after 28 years in prison was released in August 2013 and has become a shadow incapable of being located by the Mexican government and by the United States, the country that is asking for USD 20 million for his head.
