According to the Lake Chapala Reporter, an unconfirmed murder of a Canadian expat in Ajijic occurred Friday around noon. The week before, four people were shot in Chapala. Two were killed and two are hospitalized.



Two armed carjackers were arrested in Chapala in the past week. Home burglaries are on the rise. Car burglaries are frequent. The crime statistics for the state of Jalisco reported to national authorities were found to be falsified from 2015 to 2018: only 70% of the actual crimes were reported (discovered via a recent audit of the same).

Three men and one woman were arrested for robbery last week — then let go — as the victims refused to press charges for fear of retaliation.

Vehicle license plates are being stolen in droves — then used by the thieves who accumulate tickets and don’t pay — coming back on the owner of the plates.

On January 29, the municipality of Chapala was ordered by a Mexican court to pay 90 million pesos (US $4.7 million) for default on payments due on a completed public lighting contract. Chapala has two days to respond to the order or the municipal council can be detained for 36 hours. They have no money to pay the sum.

The new mayor changed the charter in October 2018 whereby municipal officials and delegates are no longer elected, but appointed by the mayor. He has yet to make those appointments.

As usual a negative comment. All has an effect on all of us when you put it together like this

You read but cannot assimilate.

Oh, thank you so much for typing out the news that we have been reading and discussing for weeks so our poor, weak minds could “assimilate” it. We are lucky indeed to have someone of your brilliant intellect to help us as we stumble through life. Rolling Eyes

My experience here is that these crime waves go in cycles. It's not the first, not the worst and won't be the last. If things don't subside I expect to see the state police and military milling around for a while. Maybe even a federale or two with their big, black, 50 cal. packing Hummer.

I’m more afraid of gun toting Texans, especially the women that carry in their handbags at the local grocery store.

Just wait til Wyatt Earp weighs in with his reporting and "take" on things.    Rolling Eyes
