Caught this truck resting at a truck stop in Haw River NC. They have a base in Laredo TX. I attempted to get some company info from their website but it was in Spanish. While googling Aralo Express I ran across this article from Mexico that showed a picture of a Aralo Express unit having a bad day.
Several of groups of armed and hooded men blocked eleven roads in central Mexico on Tuesday and managed to stop the development of a police operation that sought to deal a blow to drug trafficking networks in the region. The criminals burned vehicles and set tires on fire to close the roads in the municipalities of Celaya, Salamanca and Juventino Rosas, all three located in the State of Guanajuato, one of the main industrial muscles of Mexico.
They kidnapped and set fire to cargo vehicles and trucks, in addition to plaguing the flat tire asphalt, especially on Highway 54 of the Querétaro-Salamanca highway, the area in which several federal and state troops carried out one of their operations. . “Security elements carry out a series of operations within the ‘Joint Strategy for Guanajuato’ in various areas of the state, we invite citizens to be informed through official accounts,” said Luis Ernesto Ayala Torres, Secretary of Government (Interior) of the state in the social network Twitter.
Later, Ayala Torres published a second message in which she denied that the authorities arrested the drug trafficker José Antonio Yépez Ortiz, alias “El Marro”, as a result of the police operations that caused the highway blocks. “The version of the arrest of the leader of a criminal group in Guanajuato is circulating on social networks, such information is false, we are still working on an operation,” he said.
Criminal organizations have repeatedly demonstrated their ability to bend the Mexican government. Its high degree of coordination and quick response has repeatedly frustrated military and police operations when they try to arrest a drug trafficking leader.
The most flagrant case was the failed arrest in October 2019 of Ovidio Guzmán, son of the criminal Joaquín «El Chapo» Guzmán. In a swift military operation, the government managed to capture Ovidio for a few minutes in Culiacán, capital of the State of Sinaloa. However, the Sinaloa Cartel turned the city into a war zone after blocking streets and opening fire on civilians. Finally, the government agreed to release Ovid in exchange for the cartel ending the attacks.
