    Supermarkets and stores looted in Mexico

    A store in México state that was targeted by looters Monday.
    Gang of 70 loot México state supermarket en masse

    'You can't leave us without food,' said a social media post promoting looting

    Published on Tuesday, March 24, 2020

    Alarm caused by the Covid-19 pandemic is creating security problems in México state, where a gang of over 70 people looted a grocery store in the municipality of Tecámac on Monday night.

    Dozens of men and women rushed a Bodega Aurerra Express supermarket and ransacked the shelves and displays, leaving them bare in their wake.


    A video shared on social media by a neighbor of the store showed the empty shelves and random products scattered on the floor and out in the street.


    Outnumbering employees and security personnel, the looters took food, alcohol and even money. Some employees were reported to have made off with some of the products not taken by looters.

    Municipal and state police arrived on the scene minutes after the looters left. One of the officers was reported to have chided onlookers for not having tried to stop them, saying it was their responsibility as citizens to do so. No arrests have been reported.


    Calls for widespread looting in México state have been making the rounds on social media for the last few days.

    Various Facebook groups, with names like “Covid-19 Looting” and “Looting 2020” have been promoting the idea of mass pillaging events, claiming impending food shortages.


    “You can’t leave us without food,” said one post.


    Besides Tecámac, the calls have been made to organize looting in the municipalities of Tlalnepantla, Ecatepec, Nicolás Romero, Cuautitlán Izcalli, Tultitlán, Zumpango and Chalco.


    The state police department responded on social media by posting that it would conduct patrols to detect and deactivate any mass looting events.

    There were multiple break-ins and robberies in the state on the weekend. Another store in Tecámac was raided and an Elektra electronics store in Tultitlán was vandalized on Friday, while robberies were reported in Ecatepec and Tultitlán on Sunday.


    Governor Alfredo del Mazo Maza announced on Monday that all department stores and malls in the state would close in order to prevent people from gathering in crowds.

    Mexico has a hot mess on their hands.

    They also need to load up those illegal aliens in Tent Cities and start bussing them BACK over their Southern border.

    WE do not want them here!

    Mexico police investigate store robberies as virus spreads

    Mexican authorities in multiple states are investigating a spate of robberies and lootings at large stores that may be connected to incitement circulating on social networks as the country's coronavirus caseload grows

    MEXICO CITY -- Mexican authorities in multiple states are investigating a spate of robberies and lootings at large stores that may be connected to incitement circulating on social networks as the country's coronavirus caseload grows.

    On Wednesday, Mexico City police reported four robberies in different parts of the capital overnight. In a statement, police said that many false reports of lootings were being posted on social media, leading others to emulate them.


    Dozens of people looted a grocery store in Mexico State Monday and overnight men broke into a large box store in the southern state of Oaxaca, smashing its large front windows. Police there said they were being extra vigilant during the health emergency.

    Some of the postings urge people to sack box, grocery and department stores to take food and necessary supplies related to the coronavirus outbreak. They provide a list of stores and even a time to gather.


    But the robberies don’t seem to really be driven by necessity of essentials. Authorities have reported people stealing cell phones and other electronics, as well as clothing.


    While Mexico is encouraging people to stay at home, the federal government is not enforcing it. Some state and local governments have imposed curfews.


    On Wednesday, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said such criminal acts would not be tolerated. He said, “they’re confronting it and they will continue to confront it.”


    Mexico has 405 confirmed cases of the virus and five people have died.


    For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and death.
