Jesus Moralia Gaxiola, a Policia Estatal Preventiva (PEP) commander in Baja California was detained by US Customs and Border Protection Agents while trying to cross the border into the US and was later on turned over to the Procudaruria General de Justicia del Estado of Mexico.


Moralia Gaxiola, was in charge of the “Area of Intelligence” and supposedly, due to a lack of a Commander, he acted as the Commander of the unit, however the PEP agency informed that he was just another commissioned officer from the “Technical Area”.

It was confirmed that he was detained under charges of “Abuse of authority”, and that the PEP agency will cooperate with any information at their disposal. A Judge had already ordered his arrest, for “Abuse of authority”, but he was detained today when he attempted to cross the border through the San Ysidro port, because the CBP system found that there was an apprehension order against him.

American authorities notified Mexico and turned him over to the elements of the Procuraduria General de la Republica, who proceded to turn him over to the Penitenciaria Del Estado (Jail).

Moralia Gaxiola, is accused to extortion, torture, accusing people of carrying drugs and violation of human rights.
