During the “Anonymous Operation”, 8 high-end cars, a motorcycle, a van, a truck, guns, ammunition of various calibers, marijuana, stolen gold bars and coins were recovered.
Mexico City (apro). – In the framework of Operation Anonymous, 11 members were arrested by the Uruguayan Police for committing five robberies across five different cities of this South American country. The group robbed gold bars and millions of dollars.
The investigation began in May last year when the Colonia headquarters identified the authors of the three robberies in a house in the town of Ombúes de Lavalle and was in contact with other people with criminal records. These people didn’t come from there. He was featured in the news. He was confirmed by the press conference that Johnny Diego, the Colonia Police Chief, had been there on Monday the 13th.
After four months of raids, eleven people were taken into police custody for participating in the robbery. Subrayado.com.uy reported that the eleventh person was formally charged, and precautions were taken.
Authorities stated that it takes time to locate the thief as the investigation team must travel to different places often to find all members of the criminal gang.
Diego said the headquarters of Colonia, Paysandú, Durazno and Canelones were involved in the case.
They support these follow-up activities to be in a position to determine when the attacks were carried out. These attacks took place primarily in Montevideo, Durazno and Pesandu. This is how the organization’s major arrests Most of the perpetrators have confiscated all evidence that can prove the crimes committed,” he added.
8 high-end vehicles, including a motorcycle and van, were recovered from the “Anonymous Operation.” Also, guns, ammunition of different calibers, pot, stolen gold bars, coins, and ammunition of various calibers were also found.
The Uruguayan Prosecutor’s Office, the Interior Police and the Air Force also participated in the operation, the court’s prosecutor Jorge Diaz admitted.
Paysandu on Uruguay’s West Coast was where the thieves used oxygen tubes and broke the armor of the safe. It contained 17 gold bars and 1,000 gold coins as well as 2.5 million U.S. Dollars in cash.
The thieves use over 60 mobile phones which are constantly changing to avoid detection. This makes it difficult for them to “anonymously act” and make it impossible to be found.
Carmelo’s prosecutor María Eugenia Rodríguez said that the criminal gang’s modus operandi was to select families with safes, obtain information about these people and follow up in time until the moment of the robbery.
“These thieves are very watchful. Diego explained that the group operates in a well-organized manner.
