Four men are under investigation after they were apprehended in Guanajuato with a drone equipped with a powerful bomb.
Federal Police arrested the four near the end of last week while they were traveling in a vehicle near Salamanca.
State Attorney General Carlos Zamarripa said the Fly 3DR drone was carrying “a big load of explosive” that had a remote detonator. An assault rifle was also found in the vehicle.
Zamarripa said the men belonged to a criminal cell.
Guanajuato has not seen the level of drug-war violence experienced by other states but it has seen a surge in thefts from petroleum pipelines and freight trains.
