Federal police officers arrested a man on February 12 who they say posed as a police officer in order to assault people and steal their car and belongings. He is being charged in at least 15 other similar incidents.

Of late, local social media accounts had reported three alleged incidents of a man in a red car reminiscent of an emergency vehicle with a police-style siren on top, impersonating a patrol officer on the San Miguel-Querétaro road at night, pulling them over only to assault them and take their belongings and vehicle.

The incidents prompted local, state, and federal authorities to hold a meeting on February 8 to develop a strategy to bring back tranquility for Sanmiguelenses, Secretary of Government and City Council Gonzalo González told Atención. On February 12, federal police in Dolores announced that Víctor “N” had been arrested on the San Miguel-Los Rodríguez road.

When officers arrested him, they found a small bag of cocaine and also removable patrol lights, which led officers to charge him with the carjackings. The vehicle was a Mitsubishi sedan with Querétaro plates.

Secretary González said that all of this is part of a strategy between the three levels of government, and that it will continue until tranquility is guaranteed in San Miguel.
