The seizure of the drug derived from the fact that members of the military received reports of a transfer in airways , after which ground units were deployed in order to find the alleged members of organized crime.

Two people came down from the unit to which an inspection was applied in which the illegal substances were found . The actions were carried out on November 5, but they were communicated until Tuesday the 8th of the same month. The actions took place in the Villa de Jesús María ejido in the municipality of San Quintín.

On that occasion, the authorities did not indicate whether the detainees were originally from Baja California or if they belonged to a group linked to organized crime.

On that occasion, the air unit came from South America and landed in Chiapas. The events arose when the Integral Air Surveillance System detected an unidentified aircraft .

As a result , the authorities deployed three UH-60 helicopters and another pair of T-6C planes. The suspicious unit landed 14 kilometers southwest of Tres Picos, in the municipality of Tonalá.

In the place there was a group of individuals prepared to receive the drug shipment; however, when they noticed the presence of the military authorities, they decided to abandon the cargo and the aircraft in order to flee to avoid being arrested .

As a result, the Army and Air Force agents proceeded to carry out an inspection of the aircraft in question, in which they detected multiple packages that contained the intercepted drugs inside. In total , 340 kilograms of cocaine were seized .
