Elements of the Mexican Army secured 280 kilograms of possible fentanyl and 720 kilos of controlled drugs in Ahome, which were being transported in a parcel truck from Guadalajara.

The Secretary of National Defense (Sedena) informed that during intelligence work, the agents obtained information about the possible transfer of a drug shipment on board a tractor-trailer belonging to a parcel service, which was coming from Guadalajara, Jalisco, bound for Ciudad Obregón, Sonora.

He added that upon seeing the unit approaching the strategic military security post “El Desengaño”, located in Ahome, military personnel proceeded to search it, locating inside 280 kilograms of possible fentanyl and another 720 kilograms of controlled drugs.

The driver and the seized goods were handed over to the competent authorities so that investigations and expert actions could be carried out to determine his legal status and confirm the type and quantity of drugs.
