Dk’s map indicates km 148 is about 1 km south of Gonzaga bay Pemex station

Isn’t there a military check point just north of that Pemex?

I was gonna say that’s pretty brazen considering there is a large market right there and the area is well traveled and fairly busy even in the summer. Yes, there is a military checkpoint about half a mile north of the Pemex and from the checkpoint you can see probably 5 miles down the road especially at 10 am when the sun is at your back.

Yes, on the map the checkpoint is west of the mission warehouse. It is on the highway at Km. 145:

I would question the accuracy of the reported location. It may be only that the report was told to the market (Rancho Grande) and the next closest kilometer post to the market was 148... and not where the robbery occurred.

Talking to the reporter this morning who broke this story, the km 148 comment is the location of where LE responded to. It was there that a store owner/mgr made the call to report the crime. It still is not completely clear exactly how far down the 5 it actually happened.

The military check points are being removed as President Lopez Obrador is calling all the the troops back to remain at their bases, believing that somehow this will improve things...

Well, this really sucks.

I hope I don't hear about any more highway carjackings.

The actual location of the crime was further down the highway and the victims got rides back to SLG, where they made the report.

And yes, it was brazen considering that it occurred in broad daylight...

With Lopez Obrador slowly eliminating the military checkpoints one by one, I wouldn't bet on it.

And I'm generally an optimist...

Maybe the new cartel will deal with this like they did the motorcycle thief in San Quintin? He's no longer able to steal from others!

Ambushed on Highway 5


The following was copy/pasted from 'Talk Baja' FB group. I personally have no additional knowledge of this reported crime.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ambushed on Highway 5

Dejando Huella is a local and very reliable news source operated by my good friend Angel Anguiano who has very good sources with the local, state and federal police / national guard.

Angel reported earlier this morning that last Wednesday, August 11, tourists traveling in a caravan of three vehicles were ambushed at kilometer 148 on the Puertecitos-Chapala Highway.

Authorities were contacted by the manager of a local business in Bahia San Luis Gonzaga who informed the responding officers of a group of 7 foreigners who arrived, stating that while traveling on the Puertecitos-Chapala Highway, a black Toyota Tundra Pickup Vehicle blocked their way.Several armed men wearing hoods got out of the vehicle blocking the highway and took their personal belongings and then fled northbound with their vehicles.

The vehicles reported stolen are a black Chevrolet Tahoe, a white Toyota Tacoma Pickup and a Toyota 4Runner truck.

-------------------------------------------------------*** This has been a concern of mine and why I do not personally recommend that long, remote section of highway to travelers. It's an open invitation for such types of events. I understand that others may feel differently but that's just my dos centavos ***

The LA - San Diego news orgs need to pick up this story.

Carjackings are bad news and people should know.

I heard from a SF/Gonzaga local that the military check point was closed at the time of the robbery. ?????

Read a comment at the FB site. Turn around and head the other way. Is that the solution? What would you do?

Don't recall this happening on the Peninsula before. At least the incident is rare for Hgwy 5. Hgwy 1 doesn't bother me and I'm use to the traffic and landmarks. Jardines and Margs, Mama's for breakfast.

For those planning to drive South on 5, please share your plans to prevent a hijacking?

Travel with at least 2 Mexican nationals.

They may or may not be armed.

once I moved to Baja, I stopped washing my truck

are we learning that convoys are the opposite of safe?

these perps may achieve what Covid couldn't
slow down the tourist flow.
