In his opinion, and according to a criminality study carried out this year, Cota Mil is the preferred route for criminals to escape and target their victims, when it comes to kidnapping.
He explains that the interchanges of El Marqués, Los Palos Grandes, Altamira, La Castellana and La Florida are the points of operation of armed criminal groups. It is much easier for them to move around well into the night because traffic is almost inexistent, besides the lack of police presence.
A way of knowing or detecting an irregular situation, says the criminologist, is to observe the presence of vehicles driving slow with emergency lights on. Most of the times it’s not a mechanical issue with the vehicle or an emergency, but a modus operandi used by kidnapping gangs to mark their victims.
