A military commission killed six members of the criminal organization El Tren de Aragua in Upata (Bolívar), according to military sources.
Agents attached to the Detachment of Rural Commands 621 of the Bolivarian National Guard (GNB) patrolled the vicinity of the Aura farm, located in Alto La Carata, Upata, where they confronted members of the Aragua Train. The criminals attacked the uniformed commission with an explosive device and firearms. During the armed confrontation, six of the aforementioned gangster group were killed.
At the conclusion of the scuffle, officials collected four firearms from the site: two Glock Model 17 pistols; a Taurus revolver model 38SPL, caliber .38, serial 1951465 and a shotgun, without marking and without visible serial, caliber 12. They also found a radio transmitter, a binocular and a hand grenade safety ring.
They presume that this cell of the Aragua Train provided security in Bolívar's mining activity and also took advantage of the opportunity to commit robberies, according to the evidence collected.
In another proceeding, GNB officials had another confrontation with criminals in San Francisco de Asís (Aragua), where they killed a subject known by the nickname of El Negro. This person was a member of a gang dedicated to robbery, theft, extortion, kidnapping and homicide in that area, according to military investigations.
Security agencies continue their deployment in Las Tejerías (Aragua) to capture the leaders of the criminal group founded by Carlos Enrique Gómez Rodríguez, alias El Conejo. This gang is considered a paramilitary organization, according to reports prepared by the Aragua Integral Defense Operational Zone. The persecution of these subjects is carried out on the Pan-American highway where last Friday they wounded the Poliaragua officer Carlos Javier Hernández.
