Two minors of American origin
were detained by Foreign Trade Officials and the National Guard, when they
transported more than 20 thousand cartridges for firearms that crossed into the
country through the Mariposa sentry box, hidden in a refrigerator.
The official report indicates
that the seizure was registered at the Garita III Mariposa border crossing in
Nogales, Sonora, where elements of the National Guard in coordination with
personnel from the Tax Administration Service (SAT) located around 20 thousand
cartridges inside a refrigerator for long weapons and 7 thousand for handguns.
The seizure occurred when a
pick-up truck, with two people, entered the country from the United States
and underwent customs inspection; During a physical inspection of the
refrigerator, 32 cardboard boxes with the ammunition were found.
Faced with the possible
commission of a crime, the two minors were presented and were placed in the
custody of the corresponding federal authority and investigations will be followed to
determine their legal status.
