A statement from the Defense Department says the vehicle which was transporting the cocaine belonged to the United States Social Security Institute
Thegoldwater.com reports: These types of vehicles typically are responsible for disaster aid or philanthropic programs inside of Mexico, most likely sent as earthquake relief.
Mexican Soldiers have now detained three men who were inside of the vehicle, claiming that they were employees or the Social Security Institute which has yet to be confirmed by the agency.
There will be an ongoing investigation involving both United States Federal Agencies and Mexican authorities to determine whether anyone from inside either nation’s disaster programs was involved in the trafficking or even the theft of the vehicle.
Currently, the United States has not issued a formal statement as to the incident.
