Subject Matter: Prison break out in Ciudad Victoria
Recommendation: No prior subject matter knowledge required


The spokesman for security of Tamaulipas, Luis Alberto Rodriguez, informs that there were 29 prisoners escaped from the prison at Ciudad Victoria and that ten have been recaptured by Federal and State authorities, who launched an operation to find the other 19.


Since the early hours of this morning when the escape happened, Federal and State forces arrived, and applied control methods, both inside and outside the prison, said Samuel Cuervo in an interview with Milenio TV.

Last night and this morning, inmates of the Ciudad Victoria prison, escaped by a tunnel 5 metres deep by 40 metres in length. He said that the tunnel construction had started some months ago.


The State functionary detailed that visits to the prison today had been suspended for the security of the inmates and their families.

He confirmed that one person died, a passing car driver who the prisoners had fired at to steal his car for their escape.

He also detailed that investigations were being carried out by the Attorney of Tamaulipas and that at Midday he would offer a press conference to confer more details.

He explained that the prison in Ciudad Victoria was built in the 1940's and doesn't have the functionality that is presently required.

More details will be uploaded when available.
