More than 8 tons of various products that would be used for the manufacture of drugs were discovered by elements of the State Security and Investigation Guard (GESI), during an operation carried out in the Heriberto Jara ejido, on September 5 in the Poniente area of Mexicali, Baja California.
The investigation to find this laboratory used for the production of methamphetamine lasted several days according to what the authorities reported. The discovery was made around 2:00 p.m., at a point located between the hills of the ejido, located approximately 11 kilometers from the international line.
The building, built in a rustic way, sheltered containers of various sizes, with benzyl chloride, zinc sulfate, sodium cyanide, among other products that were apparently used to produce synthetic drugs.
In addition found was a 1994 Geo Trucks vehicle, with a report of theft on September 2 of this year, in the eastern area of ​​Mexicali.

The laboratory had a kind of camouflage made of cardboard, which complicated its visibility from the air, so the operation had to be carried out on the ground.
