It was at kilometer 001 + 800 of the Benito Juárez highway, section: Culiacán-Las Brisas, where national guards asked the bus driver to stop his march for a routine check-up.

It is pointed out that one of the passengers showed an evasive attitude and tried to hide a backpack under his seat, so they asked for his consent to open it; They located various stacks of bills of different denominations.

As they did not have the documentation to prove the legal possession and transfer, the Passenger’s Book of Rights Assisting Persons in Detention was read to the passenger, the National Detention Registry was filled with his data and was made available to the Federal Public Ministry.
