Elements of the Attorney General’s Office and the Secretary of the Navy carried out a ground and air operation on Thursday morning in the La Flor ejido, which belongs to the Eldorado syndicate, south of Culiacán.
At the site, the elements secured a country house set up as a party room, but it is not known if anyone was detained.

Neighbors of the sector mentioned that the operation began around 5:00 a.m., when two helicopters flew over the area, and later several civilian units with license plates covered with black tape and several Semar patrol cars with official numbering and logos arrived by land, from which armed men descended, some of them dressed in civilian clothes and others in Navy uniforms, and then entered through the fence of the property and broke the front door plate to search the property.
The operation was carried out until shortly before 10:00 a.m., and then the elements withdrew aboard at least eight civilian units and a dozen Navy patrol cars.
According to testimonies, the elements allegedly beat people passing by the site and held others inside their homes, and also searched other properties.
The secured premises is allegedly uninhabited and non-functioning.
