National Police intervenes in Pekin and other neighborhoods due to high levels of violence
The Cibao Central Regional Police Directorate permanently intervened in the sector of Pekin and surrounding areas after the incidents of the last 72 hours, which have left two people dead and others detained for alleged links to drugs.
At the same time, similar actions are being carried out in other sectors to stop drug micro-trafficking, which keeps the residents of these communities in fear.
The regional director, General Ernesto Rodríguez García, said that all the investigative and preventive agencies were deployed, people were arrested, portions of drugs were seized, and points of sale and distribution were dismantled.
The streets of Pekin are patrolled and watched under a strict control system, and vehicles have been seized.
