Rosarito slayings at 15 this year, compared with 5 at this point last year

     Frontera reported that there have been 15 killings in Rosarito this year, up from five at the same point last year. State Attorney General's Office official Adolfo Santiago said many of the slayings may have to do with disputes over drug-peddling territory, as has been happening in Tijuana. He said reports of home burglary rose from 166 during the same period of 2012 to 195 this year, but said that may not mean there are more burglaries but rather that residents have more confidence in reporting the burglaries to police because a program is in place for authorities to respond immediately in such case.

General says military still is manning checkpoints, but is varying them

      Brig. Gen. Gabriel García Rincón said Monday that the military is still manning checkpoints in Tijuana, but is moving them around and doing more of them at night. Some had complained that the military was not doing enough to curb crime, particularly because of a recent uptick in violence largely attributed to disputes over local drug-peddling territory.

9 killings in Tijuana for week

     Tijuana registered nine slayings in the week of April 22-28, Frontera reported.

      The paper's Insecurity Barometer registered 38 drug-possession cases and 48 vehicle thefts.

     Disputes over local drug-peddling have caused Tijuana killings to rise this year.

     The Los Angeles Times reported earlier this month that Mexico's new administration may be downplaying violence.
