Mazatlan, Sinaloa. – After confirming the identity of the Conapesca official detained last Friday, April 2, the second detainee was revealed today; Omar Vázquez, state chief of customs in Sinaloa, arrested for the theft of a shipment valued at 2 million pesos.

Unofficially, the person responsible for fraud and for carrying a firearm is presumably Omar Vázquez, Navy Captain and Customs Chief in the State of Sinaloa, arrested while trying to extort money from a fishing businessman.

With it is added the identity of two of the three officials arrested in the crime that took place at the Bonfil Park pier, in Mazatlán, Sinaloa.

On Friday, April 1, municipal agents observed several men in what appeared to be a fight inside the aforementioned pier. Upon approaching, one of them pointed to the three men as his aggressors, since they intended to steal 12 tons of fish valued at two million pesos by presenting apocryphal documentation.
