Passed by this afternoon. We were stopped and asked where we were going. Initially he spoke to us in Spanish. We didn’t understand what he said, continued in English. Just asked the one question and waved us through. A little intimidating.

Le groupe de gars en noir étaient encore là. Nous avons passé près deux, saluer la mains et continuer sans regarder les autres qui essayaient de nous faire arrêter sur le côté en bougeant leurs flashlight.
Je suis certain que ce sont des bandits voleurs de touristes

Report Check-In

About 8 people in black uniform, some sort of federal officers, doing checks on most cars by the looks of it. They asked us to get out of the van but my husband stuck with him while he squatted down and used his flashlight to check under the van. He also looked in my handbag. Very polite and spoke English.

around 6 guys with uniforms but no official signs. one guy tried flagging us down with a torch and vest. we slowly passed him and just continued driving. didn't pursue us. seems super sketchy.

Today we were pulled over at this checkpoint, about 10 men and 2 women, some of them with guns. They are FGR agents (General prosecutors of the republic) https://fgr.org.mx/ . They are mainly searching for drugs and weapons. They were friendly and chatty to us. Just keep an eye on them while they check your stuff and they'll let you go after a few minutes.

Report Check-In

We were stopped for inspection. A lot of guys wearing all black searched the car for about 3 minutes. They were pretty friendly and talked to us in english. We had our valuables with us outside of the car. So it wasn’t a big deal at all. After the quick search inside our car we were allowed to move on.

Report Check-In

A group of unmarked people wearing police style clothing. Pulling people over for a “5-minute check.” They had no identification. They searched our van looking for cash and drugs. They also searched my purse, then let us go and did not take anything. Next time this happens, I plan to ask for identification before exiting my vehicle…

Report Check-In

Nobody here when we went through yesterday on Sunday. Maybe only here weekdays.

No stop, everything is fine. Either way it's the highway, it's hard to slow down.

Nous avons été arrêtés par un groupe d'hommes sans uniforme mais foulard sur la tête. Nous leur avons dit ne pas parler espagnol, que français. ils nous ont laissé passer. Les fouilles des autres véhicules arrêtés paraissaient bien complètes.

Nothing here today (Monday at 2:00 pm). Maybe they worked all weekend.

Report Check-In

While heading North, we were stopped just a bit further, under the bridge at the entrance of the village. A group of around 10 men, they had no uniform, no badge, no guns, just flashlights.
They stopped a car on front of us and let a few other go through.
They asked us where we came from, where we were heading to and then asked us to move further for a “5 minutes search”. We acted as if they were telling us to move on and just continued the road without stopping. It really doesn’t look legit.

Report Check-In

Group of men dressed similarly to one another stopped us and asked us to pull over. We don’t speak Spanish but I think they asked us to take 5 minutes to search our vehicle. We drove past the spot where they asked us to pull over and just kept going. About 1 mile down the road from here we were waived past by a policeman wearing a uniform and standing next to a marked truck. The checkpoint was definitely sketchy. And do the police just down the road know about what is going on? I think so, how about you?
