Reynosa Police Chief Resigns Amid Warning

The police chief in the Mexican border city of Reynosa has resigned amid a U.S. consulate warning that police had been robbing American visitors. Carlos Hernandez Chaires resigned Wednesday. Two other top police officials also quit, one after barricading himself in his office for several hours, The (McAllen) Monitor reported. Whether the resignations were tied to the consulate warning was not immediately known. John Naland, the U.S. consul for the Mexican state of Tamaulipas, issued the advisory last month, citing reports of police harassment and cash machine robberies in Reynosa. Police allegedly forced U.S. drivers to go to dark, remote places or took them to ATMs and told them to hand over cash “fines” or face jail time. Group Profile
