Gunmen in Mexico Steal 7 Million Ammunition Rounds Headed to Texas

Gulf Cartel

A group of gunmen in Central Mexico hijacked two tractor-trailers containing more than seven million rounds of ammunition headed to Texas. Mexican authorities recovered the two trucks without the ammo-loaded trailers following a large-scale search operation.

The incident took place this week in the state of Guanajuato. Authorities first learned of the theft when representatives from Tecnos Industries, who manufactures Aguila Ammunitions, contacted federal authorities after losing contact and GPS information from their two vehicles and security detail, Mexico’s Proceso magazine reported.

Authorities believe a group of gunmen managed to stop the vehicles and forced the drivers and security detail to get out while they drove away with the cargo. The gunmen left the trucks several miles north of the scene of the robbery.

According to court documents from the case, the majority of the rounds were .22 caliber. The shipment also included pallets of .38 Super, .40, and .45 caliber ammo, as well as various sizes and types of shotgun shells.

The robbery comes at a time when Guanajuato and other once-peaceful states in Central Mexico have seen a dramatic spike in violence as rival drug cartels fight for control of drug routes, local drug sales, and the control of the lucrative underground fuel market. The escalating violence in the area also led to an ongoing spike in highway robberies, particularly targeting commercial shipments.

Three weeks until Tennesseans can carry without a permit TOSIN FAKILE

“Ammo prices have gone up substantially, but they’ve dropped a bit,” Allen said. “Thousand rounds of 9mm ammo was about $240 before Covid and during Covid it got to $800 and people were still buying it it has since dropped here at our place to $500 for a thousand rounds. And its kind of hard to get nowadays,” he added.

Allen who oversees training at Royal Range says he has seen one major trend; more women buying guns.

‘We’ve seen a lot of; a substantial increase in ladies coming here to buy guns,” Allen said. “We are seeing that increase quite a bit, whether its women self-defense , first time gun owners,” he added.

Allen adds that even though the law takes effect in July, it doesn’t require in- person or online course anymore. Royal Range is putting a course in place to teach people the law when the permitless carry goes into effect.

“We’re all for a person defending themselves. They need to know the law, because if you don’t know the law, you will get in so much trouble. If I pull it out at the wrong time, that’s called aggravated assault which is felony,” Allen said.

He also adds another trend they’ve noticed recently is more people coming to the gun range looking for training.
