The entire police force of the resort city of Acapulco has been disarmed and placed under investigation after Mexican state authorities claimed the full squad had been infiltrated by drug gangs. Officials in Guerrero state also issued arrest warrants for two Acapulco police commanders, accusing them of homicide. The state government said it took the extraordinary step on “suspicion that the force had probably been infiltrated by criminal groups” and “the complete inaction of the municipal police in fighting the crime wave.” Remaining officers were told to hand in their guns, radios, and bulletproof vests and were taken for background checks. Law enforcement will be taken over by soldiers, marines, and state police. The U.S. government repeated its travel alert advising citizens not to travel in Guerrero state.
