I just returned from a very long day with the police.......(after our meeting)
We received a call at 3:50 pm through my office, that someone had tried another skimmer on an ATM of ours in the Marina.
At 4:05 I received a call from the security company that the hardware security detected a skimmer
(this was at Charlies Exchange House, in the Marina)
So.......Sepesa sent out the undercover troops, and in a record 22 minutes, ....BAM, we caught more of these creatures!
(so I was fortunate enough to spend the next 10 hours with the chief....)
-again, it's impossible for info to be compromised, and if for ANY crazy reason it was, I have your backs!!!
Two things came of this tonight;
1.- the first "kid" arrested was the nephew of one of the guys two weeks ago....23 years old!!
My Son runs the office here in PV and looks after operations in the entire country, and he is 24 years old. I have to
Tell you, I had real mixed emotions sending him to jail!
2. - Chief says " I forgot to tell you the story of how we known the "bus bandit" and why we will catch him"!
- about 2-3-4 months ago, there was an off duty cop (security for the chief) out at Mismaloya with his girl friend, on a Sunday, and they drove down a little dirt road. 4 guys tried robbing them with machetes, fake guns, and a rifle that didn't work. They successfully had him out of the car, taped his hands behind his back, marched him off the road, and one of the bandits called out, "bring him back!!!!"
- this guy was searching the car for "their ransoms", and saw a clip for a hand gun between the drivers seat, and the door....they marched this guy back, took off the tape (not knowing he is/was personal security for the chief, and sometimes mayor) and said "we see the clip, where the fuck is the pistol!! Tell us or we kill you"...he says "okay, I will show you"....reaches between the seat and the console, grabs the pistol, shoots one bad guy dead, and another through the shoulder....
The next day, a father marches another young kid into the police station by the ear, and says " he is the third, I can't control him him, please help by teaching him before he gets killed"
-the fourth has a tattoo of Tijuana on his back.......
(this robbery was in the news, when it happened, but in Spanish papers...)
-so, the police are REALLY trying to find this guy........
(for the rest of my ATM story, stay tuned, and watch the paper tomorrow......the reporters were all over it!!!
And this is the rest of the story.......
