El Financiero (Mexico) reports:

México, 20 de enero.- Agentes de la Policía Federal Preventiva descubrieron en Tijuana, Baja California, un centro de adiestramiento de sicarios, presuntamente pertenecientes al cártel de los hermanos Arellano Félix, donde aseguraron un arsenal.

PFP agents have discovered a training center for assassins in Tijuana, presumably belonging to the drug cartel controlled by the Arellano Félix brothers, where they seized an arsenal.

Possibly, but best to boil before consuming. On which see also

En conferencia de prensa, el comisario general y coordinador de las fuerzas federales de la Policía Federal, Rodolfo Cruz López, precisó que las armas podrían haber ingresado al país desde diferentes fronteras.

In a press conference, the [head of the PFP] explained that the weapons may have entered the country across several different borders.

Al anunciar el hallazgo, el funcionario federal destacó que gracias a los trabajos de inteligencia y de campo se localizó el centro de adiestramiento clandestino en el domicilio ubicado en el número 716 de la Avenida Reforma, en la colonia Independencia.

Announcing the discovery, the federal official said it was thanks to intelligence and field work the underground training center was discovered in a residence located at 716 Av. Reforma in the Independencia district.

Detalló que luego de una revisión minuciosa en el lugar se halló la entrada a una galería de tiro subterránea, donde se encontraron cuatro armas largas de diferentes calibres, entre ellas tres ametralladoras similares a las que usan las fuerzas armadas del país.

He said that a careful search of the premises discovered a hidden entrance to an underground chamber where four long guns of different calibers were found, among them three [sub?]machine guns similar to those used by the Mexican armed forces.

Similar, or fallen off the back of Mexican army trucks?

Adiestramiento means “training,” but no textbooks, chalkboards, or firing ranges are among the inventory of stuff discovered, and the facility is also described as an “armory.”

Was the Tijuana Institute of Applied Death-Squadding equipped with the Enciclomedia “digital chalkboard,” by any chance?

Asimismo, 19 armas largas diversas desarticuladas, además de 30 mil cartuchos útiles de diferentes calibres y aproximadamente 200 cargadores de distintos calibres.

Also discovered were 19 long guns of various makes, disassembled, as well as 30,000 live rounds of different calibers and some 200 ammo clips of different calibers.

El el funcionario de la Secretaría de Seguridad Pública federal (SSP) indicó que no se puede conocer con precisión el lugar de procedencia de esas armas, ya que algunas provienen de China, Estados Unidos, así como de países de Europa.

The federal public security (SSP) official indicated that the provenance of the weapons cannot be known with precision, but that some come from China and the U.S. as well as from European nations.

It is always inspiring to be told by a law enforcement official that further investigation is useless because the information sought is unknowable in principle (the David Sasaki FUD axiom.)

En este sentido, dijo que hasta el momento no se puede asegurar que las armas usadas en la balacera registrada la semana pasada en Tijuana hayan salido de esa armería clandestina y tampoco se puede dar a conocer la identidad de los cadáveres encontrados durante esos hechos.

He also said that it cannot yet be confirmed that the weapons used in the shootout last week in Tijuana came from this underground armory, nor can the identity of the corpses found in the wake of those incidents be announced.

Además, durante el operativo se aseguraron dos camionetas marca Chevrolet de 3.5 toneladas blindadas y otras dos marca Nissan con compartimientos ocultos, así como un automóvil Cavalier. (Con información de Notimex/SCL)

During the operation, two armored 3.5 [metric] ton Chevy pickup trucks were seized as well, and two Nissan pickups with hidden compartments, as well as a [Chevy] Cavalier.

Here in Brazil, the preferred SUV of the hard men seems to be the Toyota Hilux.
