Yesterday, in response to a call that was made to the emergency number 066, officers from the State Police (PEP) arrested a man who was on his way to deliver groceries and political propaganda of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) and the coalition “Commitment to Baja California”, to supporters of this political party.
The call led these officers to the Salvador Rosas Magallon Boulevard, where they caught up to this man, who was driving a green 1997 Dodge Dakota, and pulled him over for a vehicle code violation: driving a vehicle that did not have license plates.
After pulling the vehicle over, officers observed that in the back of it there were several bags with the name of a large grocery food chain store called “Soriana””. It is now known that these were a total of 220 bags that were full of different items from this store.
As officers started to question the man, another person in a Dodge Nitro that came up to the officers said that the man who was being detained, was going around the towers of the Rio Vista neighborhood, distributing propaganda of the PRI party and soliciting votes for candidates of the coalition Commitment Baja California, in exchange for the pantries.
The man arrested was identified as Miguel Angel Mendez Martinez, 49, and a native of Tijuana. He will now be processed accordingly with the laws regarding this matter in the State of Baja California.
