Military in Chapala... ?

Post by caligirl108 on Fri Mar 15, 2019 9:51 am

20 minutes ago, I got a post on my FB page of large number of military garbed soldiers on foot & in vehicles... Anyone over there know what's going on? Posted by a mexicana I know, reliable, not fake news...

The local government has called in the military to help calm the situation in response to recent shootings. It is not the first time this has happened and likely will not be the last.

Thx Lady O. So there were a couple more shootings in the last 48 hours in Chapala I heard. don't know much else. Even after 4 years here, this is new stuff for me... Will they be patrolling down the caraterra towards Ajijic? I have an appt in Riberas... just wondering..

The last time the military showed up in this area was 2012, and they even erected a structure at the West end of town to facilitate checking vehicles. It's still there on the right side of the road in the tope area. There had been some horrendous incidents of violence. Things are apparently heating up among the gangs/cartels again, especially in Guadalajara.

Not to mention the 19 bodies in plastic bags found in an aqua negra ditch yesterday outside of Ixlahuacan. . .

It is about time. With a mayor and governor like we have, good luck.

We heard that. We're just east of SJC. Sounded like it was up on the mountain.
