Gendarmerie personnel seized parcels on the Terminal de Ómnibus de Mendoza with a curious substance. The procedure was carried out in the midst of patrolling tasks carried out by the personnel and they estimate that the shipment was from Salta.
The procedure was carried out by the personnel of the “Las Heras” Road Safety Group that depend on the 64 Squadron of Mendoza. The troops were carrying out a patrol in the vicinity of the terminal when, approaching the parcel depot, they controlled the merchandise coming from Salta.
